Holiday Homes

Australia has been on holidays over the last week, with Easter Brake, followed by ANZAC long weekend and on top of that school holidays in all States and Territories. And it got me thinking, were would I go if I was on holidays? so I started dreaming up a wish list, and these were the countries and homes I would like to visit in my dreams, and maybe one day in reality, and all these homes are available for rent.
My first choice was my home town Byron Bay, The Verandahs..



I found this stunning home in the hinterland,  that would be perfect for family and friends to stay for a long weekend, no long drive or traffic, and no cleaning up after them.

For something completely over the top, I would love to stay in a villa in Lake Como, just like this one, or any where in Italy for that matter.

The Caribbean sounds nice, in fact it sounds fantastic 

There is something incredibly romantic about the Greek Islands

I have never been to Scandinavia, but it is defiantly one of  my top 10 places to visit on my Bucket List. This beautiful Holiday Home is in Denmark.


I have been fortunate to holiday in New York, but never had a chance to visit my top wish list destination, the Hampton's, and not for the beaches, or because the rich and famous holiday there( maybe a little bit because of that) but for the architecture and the interior style that I love.
This is a Hampton's Holiday Home that had 24 American Interior Designers commissioned to decorate a room each, these are some of my favourite rooms and this is the incredible Holiday Home that they have created..
 This is a home that I could easily see myself holidaying in,while I am relaxing and checking out the individual styles of each designer and just soaking in all their creativity.
