Yesterday at disgusting-o-clock I staggered off the red eye in Tel Aviv to be whisked off to The Jaffa, @abyrosen’s brand new hotel in the heart of the bustling old town. So brand new is this wonderful, tranquil hotel that I was in fact the very first ever actual guest. Part 13th century crusader site, part 19th century French hospital, part new build, the place houses 120 rooms and suites as well as residences, two restaurants, a spa, gym and pool. All rather cleverly and sensitively designed by the marvellous @johnpawson and brilliant local architect Ramy Gill. I’m meant to head home tomorrow, but I might just forget to go to the airport. I’m sure no one will notice. .

I know, I know, I’m the last person in London to visit @hide_restaurant, but there I was yesterday enjoying a guided tour by interior designer Rose Murray of @thesewhitewallsstudio. This, if you can believe it, was her first interiors commission. The sinuous, soaring laminated veneer stairwell designed by @atmosstudio and built by Polish master craftsmen #Trabczynski is the star of the show, but the subtle botanical bas-relief by @racheldein in the upstairs private dining rooms was really rather lovely.

My obsession with Martha’s Vineyard has now, I think, passed the 30-year mark. Three of my happiest childhood summers spent there. Thumbing rides to Lucy Vincent beach, sleepovers, beach parties when I’d pretend to like beer, my first taste of fresh lobster at The Homeport, buying groceries from The Chilmark Store, my friend Heloise helpfully spraying an entire bottle of Sun In over my head. All of it. Perfect summers. Oh and those Cape Cod cabins with views of Menemsha. If only I had properly noticed them when I was there. This one, known as The Big Camp, built in 1906, is pretty typical. Lovely. Some day when I grow up I plan to return. My dream: to rent one of Eliot Noyes’ mid-century gems for the season. Sharesies anyone? .

I’ve been in Dorset this week for the joyous wedding of very dear friends. There was pleasingly rubbish wifi, which forced me offline - no bad thing - but look how gorgeous! Fish ‘n chips ‘n ice cream by the sea at sunset, a perfect sandy beach on a warm, sunny morning, which frankly could’ve been The Hamptons (if you squint), and Corfe Castle for a dash of 1000 year-old-history. Happy days. .

John Lautner’s the don, isn’t he? Absolute perfection. Cannot wait to see these extraordinary houses up close. California, I am officially excited for next year. .

Let’s all take a moment to appreciate and adore a bit of Alfred Browning Parker. Woodsong house, the architect’s own home in Coconut Grove, Florida, was built in the late 60s with Honduran mahogany and features a 90ft lap pool. It was sold last year for a little over $2million. Curses. Missed it.

This isn’t my current view. Sadly. However, I’m in the early stages of planning a California road trip for next spring, so will definitely be stopping by Stahl House in Los Angeles for a visit. Designed by architect Pierre Koenig and completed in 1960, the house became part of the Modernism case study program. Glorious. Who wants to come?

Back in January I was sent to Florence to report on the rather spectacular @gucci Garden for Australian @vogueliving. I’ve had worse gigs. I think my highlight, aside from two nights alone in a posh hotel room with a bed to myself, rummaging through archive drawings and getting to see the brand’s almost 100-year-old luggage, was chatting with the madly charismatic chef @massimobottura. He was cool. His food is delicious. The story was published in the May/June issue, but clearly I’m a bit rubbish at posting on time. Thanks for the commission @studioverity. Where next? .

Yesterday morning the sun was shining on the roof of @thenedlondon during an enlightening #fashionforbrunch with the charming, smart and refreshingly open @charliecaselyhayford. We talked about his impressive fashion pedigree, history of art, notions of beauty, his awesome father Joe (and entire madly accomplished family for that matter), we even covered Gareth Southgate’s waistcoats. Good times. .

I’m rubbish at sitting still on holiday, as is the three-year-old, so we move. Constantly. Means there’s time to wander. I call this one Tiles of Puglia (I wish I owned).

Left to my own devices yesterday at @theconranshopofficial autumn preview and I think I’d mentally spent in the region of £50,000 within about 20 minutes of looking around. Oh but the newly reissued fibreglass Eames dining chairs for @vitra or the new Latis Vienna desk and chair by @samuel_wilkinson straw desk, which had a charming whiff of dressing table about it. Or maybe the Maggiolina lounge chair by Marco Zanuso for @zanotta_spa, the wooly upholstered ring chairs originally designed in 1958 by Nanna and Jorgen Ditzel. The new kids linens or those glass terrariums with tennis courts inside. Outside, in almost 30 degree heat and bright sun, it was Christmas. Of course it was. I. Want. Everything. .

Hot summer nights are perfect for slow neighbourhood walks. Last night we wandered around Crouch End and snuck into the glorious Hornsey Town Hall. Designed by New Zealand-born architect Reginald Uren between 1933-1935, it was used by the council until the 60s before it fell into disrepair. It’s soon to be turned into posh apartments and a hotel. Predictable. At least the listed building will be restored. It is properly beautiful.

Another fun Fashion For Brunch session yesterday at @thenedlondon. An enlightening conversation with the seriously switched on @haenikim. It’s hard to believe that her madly successful label @kitristudio isn’t even 18 months old. Also: would you look at that posture and perfectly pointy toe. You can tell she’s a classically trained dancer. I’m the sloucher on the left. .

Having stumbled across the work of Dan Duckham (see a couple of posts ago), it got me thinking about the master of organic architecture, Antti Lovag. Hungarian-born, based in France for much of his career, a former colleague of Jean Prouvé; he called his freeform style ‘habitology’. This, Maison Bernard, in the South of France, originally built during the 1970s, underwent a five-year restoration completed in 2016, by Odil Decq. Oh but the new colour scheme, the ocean backdrop, the Barbapapa curves. The house is now a foundation, which hosts an annual artist residency programme, but better than that it’s also open to the public. Who’s coming with me? .

What a nice morning yesterday hanging out at the @establishedandsons showroom. I was waiting for design director Sebastian Wrong to look away so I could drag the @barberosgerby Zero-In coffee table down the stairs and take it home, but he didn’t. So I consoled myself by gently stroking the madly soft @lamaisonpierrefrey alpaca upholstery on the new @ronanerwanbouroullec sofa instead. Swings and roundabouts.

There I was happily avoiding deadlines when I stumbled across the work of North Carolina-based architect Dan Duckham. Oh but the gorgeously circular forms of his 1971 Palmer House in Florida. I’m a bit in love. .

A day drenched in sun = a perfect way to kick off @clerkenwelldesignweek. First stop: the new collection by @timorous_beasties for @brintons_carpets. Inspired by abstracts as seen from above, such as flagstone, coastline, sand and so on, each design more beautiful than the next. Wooly Axminster excellence. .
