Weekend getaway

Posted on Sat, 17 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

We all fell in love with Casa Cook Rhodes. Now it’s time to do the same with its sister property. Taking inspiration from traditional Greek island architecture, has a village-like feel with one and two-storey cubist houses grouped around gardens and patios. The palette is earthy and natural with a play on dark interiors and bright outdoor spaces. From rooms to suites and villas the experience is about low-key luxury. There is one problem though. It’s not really a weekend getaway. It’s more a lifestyle runaway.

Favourite things

Polished concrete floors with exposed aggregate, rendered bathroom walls, raw brass, painted brick, breeze block, open plan living. These are a few of my favourite things. Oh I forgot to mention re-imagined retro houses, the  swan-like transformation from tired blonde brick and boxy, dark rooms into stylish, light filled spaces perfect for beachside living.

OMG! I want, I need this kitchen. All the boring everyday stuff hidden behind sleek, minimalist doors and a stunning table as counter setup with espresso machine plumbed in. So simple, so chic, so impossible to fit into my small kitchen space but, hey, a girl can dream. Part of a beautiful renovation of a traditional home by New Zealand design studio .
