The Curator’s Apartment: A Design-Led Holiday Retreat in Bath

The Curator’s Apartment is a pared-back, art-filled holiday rental in the center of Bath that doubles as an artistic retreat. It is the first design-led rental created by Tina Liu, who—after a decade-long career in the City—is now a property developer intent on creating individually crafted spaces for passing travelers seeking ease and authenticity.

Seven Lakes Inn in Maine: Summer-Ready Lodgings by a Mother-Daughter Duo

The latest weekend escape I’m eyeing here in Maine? Seven Lakes Inn, recently opened in an 1840s farmhouse in Belgrade. I first spotted glimpses on Instagram and was struck by the design-minded but unfussy interiors: black-painted bed frames, natural-fiber rugs, classic quilts—the kind of place you can hang up your wet bathing suit after a plunge in the lake without having to worry. And no wonder: The four-room inn is the project of a mother and daughter—Carolyn Walker (mother) and Jordan Shaw (daughter)—who are also both alums of California-based vintage shop Elsie Green. “My mom and I have worked on…

Brushed stainless steel, soft Corian, and light oak combine with the age-old timber ceiling beams and stone walls original to the structure, formerly a barn, for a particularly striking materials palette. The team behind Jack Trench, a bespoke kitchen design firm in London, was tasked with converting the barn into a guest house. With such strong textures in play, the decision was made to go for a minimalist design. “We kept the kitchen design as clean and pared-back as possible so as not to detract from…


Kindred House, a New, Creative Coastal Retreat in Margate, England

Kindred House, on England’s southeast coast, is Margate’s newest guest house and a place that has been inspired by the shore along which it sits. In fact, when I asked the owner, Natasha Lawless, to share some images of the project, she responded with a selection of elemental landscapes and details from her surroundings: a close-up of the erosion holes in a slab of chalk, graphic rock formations, a piercing sunset, and a thick carpet of seaweed. Above: The Rie Room, one of two restored rooms in Kindred House. “The concept of Kindred House is an idea I have had…
