Saturday drinks

Posted on Sat, 7 Feb 2015 by midcenturyjo

Drinks tonight? I’d love to come but I can’t. I have to work. You’ll have a fab time at The Nelson. The fitout by Techné Architecture + Interior Design is so cool. Rustic meets maritime meets industrial, distressed and recycled. I’d call in sick to work but I’m the boss. Have a rum for me!

Is it only Tuesday? Not Friday? Still most of the working week in front of me? Urgh! Time for a virtual escape to the French countryside. To Bassiviere in the Lot-et-Garonne region, a tra­di­tional farm­house and 17th cen­tury out­build­ings reimagined as con­tem­po­rary barn chic holiday apartments. Want to runaway with me?

Summer home

Posted on Tue, 20 Jan 2015 by midcenturyjo

It must have something to do with my return to work after the summer holidays but I’m obsessing over holiday homes, guest houses, boat houses, anything that’s associated with running away from the day to day drudgery and putting up my feet. I’d happily set up camp in this lovely cottage for a few more weeks of sun and fun. Sagaponack Summer Home by Huniford.
