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.

Gardening in New York

Posted on Sat, 10 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

As you walk along the man-made canyons of New York it pays to look up. You may just see a green tendril hanging down or glimpse a few tree tops waving in the wind. Even better if you’re high up in one of its buildings you may be teased by private green spaces below. I thought I’d share two such gardens by , the first at the top of a disused fire escape in Soho and the other on a terrace in Midtown East.
