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.
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.
It’s almost the weekend baby and I couldn’t think of a more perfect chill out pad than this colourful bohemian getaway designed by Allison Bloom at . Fun, fab and family friendly with just enough retro rattan to make my head spin. It’s California coastal cool at its best.
Stylish black and white living in California with a hint of the 70s but definitely of the current design moment. Artisanal and organic, zen like and beautiful in its simplicity. Carmel Valley Residence by integrated design studio .
