I published this post a couple of weeks before Christmas but I was a bad girl. I broke a press embargo but now that it has been published in Country Style magazine it’s time to feature this amazing holiday getaway again. An absolute must stay.
Introducing Room + Board the latest in the stable of fabulous accommodation properties by stylist and decorator Lynda Gardener. The purpose built open plan barn in the Victorian country town of Daylesford is part warehouse, part greenhouse and totally delicious. The perfect getaway for couples or single guests in Gardener’s signature style you can book here.
This country house in Extremadura in western Spain is a sophisticated marriage of old and new, rustic and elegant, modern photograph and heirloom art. Rural living with a surprisingly urbane touch and through it all a calm, unaffected beauty. What else would you expect from Isabel López-Quesada?

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Lifestyle concept store Zoobibi by The Stella Collective.
I love seeing renovation projects where a period home’s architecture is respected and restored. Kudos to STUDIO 1 NINE 1 for doing this home justice. This 100+ year old Edwardian received a complete makeover, bringing beauty and life back into this classic Toronto home. The project included, Full demolition/gut of the dining room and a new window, new paint throughout, new furniture, lighting, accessories, complete refurbishment of 2 fireplaces as well as the vintage pocket doors. We also updated the kitchen by painting out the existing cabinetry, installing new counters, back-splash and hardware.
Australians know where to escape on their holidays. Our number one vacation destination is Bali. Beautiful island, beautiful people and beautiful accommodation. As you drag yourself through this hump day Wednesday I give to you the fabulous eye candy that is Villa Massilia, a tropical compound of 3 villas in the beach resort of Seminyak. Daydreaming in front of your work computer can begin now … unless you are lucky enough to make the journey to this slice of heaven in real life. I’m checking availability right now.
