Getaway, faraway. Need a virtual escape from the daily grind? Join me for a fantasy long weekend here in Belgium. We’ll rent this converted carriage house. There will be lazing about and chatting, communal meals and lots of wine, quiet moments and riotous laughter. Aaahhhh! We can dream can’t we. The Heerlijkheid Van Marrem Residence via Kid & Coe.

Country to contemporary, traditional to modern, Harriet Anstruther Studio can do it all, and the resulting spaces are the most calming, inviting and timeless you can imagine. Each and every one of these rooms draws you in and I would be completely at ease and at peace in all of them.
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?
