Ideas of bedrooms decorated with grey 2018

  • Now is the perfect time to visit – before the thick heat of the wet season begins in – and Bullo’s 12-bedroom guest wing has just been redone by -based designer.

    Sibella Court
  • We’re long-time fans of Court’s work, which fuses craft and curiosities with her global magpie eye. And here on the edge of the remote, she’s taken her cues from the incredible landscape and outback heritage, mixing colours inspired by natural materials found around the property (earth and clay, eucalyptus leaves and melaleuca blossom, boab seeds and wild ants) with textures (leather, salvaged wood, blackened steel) in a roughly pretty and elemental iteration of frontier-ranch style.

  • There’s hardware forged by blacksmiths, towel holders braided by whip-makers, and sculpture by Aboriginal artist Lena Yarinkura from the nearby Arnhem Land.

  • Guests slot into daily life with the station hands, helping to muster the animals, feed the calves, do bore checks and lick runs, and all the other tasks it takes to manage the 4,000-strong herd of Brahman-cross cattle across dusty russet plains and dramatic river valleys, where the waters hide barramundi and crocs. It’s a humbling and exhilarating ride in one of the world’s most spectacular wildernesses.

    Sibella Court
  • When I tell people where I work, I inevitably get asked one, or both, of these questions: ‘Where should I go on holiday?’ and ‘What’s the most incredible trip you’ve been on?’. The latter is far easier to answer, without a beat:.

  • It’s not the most obvious place for a (a high-altitude desert in a Buddhist corner of northern ) but it's where I went, seven years ago this week. On the hour’s flight from Delhi to Leh, deep in the folds of the Himalayas, ragged snow-topped peaks cut like teeth through the puffy carpet of cloud before the plane swoops through and down barren, lunar-like valleys, startling wisps of greenery hugging the river that snakes through its belly. The main town of Leh is 3,500m above sea level (in comparison, Ben Nevis, the highest peak on the is a tiddly 1,344m); landing here literally takes your breath away.

  • I went with, which cleverly rent houses from Ladakhi locals in six villages along the Indus Valley, refashioning the first-floor rooms in a soothing, simple style and using them as hubs that travellers can move between. Your guide plans daily trips to ancient monasteries clinging the mountain-sides, serious walks in the Himalayas, visits to hidden-away hamlets and precariously positioned palaces, white-water rafting along the Zanskar river or freewheeling down from the Khardung La pass (a meer 5,359 metres up), archery lessons (a local favourite along with polo) and cooking classes.

  • The houses themselves are like sugar cubes, wrapped in fluttering prayer flags and surrounded, in, by sunflowers, wildflowers, apricot and walnut orchards.

  • Another very special outfit up here is, whose tented Camba Camp has two pitches in the valleys: one in the shadow of the monastery (join the monks at 7am for morning prayer) and the other at Diskit in the little-ventured-to Nubra valley, which was added a couple of summers ago.

  • Life here adapts to the extremest of conditions with a hypnotic sense of peace. In winter, temperatures drop as low as -30˚C and snow leopards stalk the frozen Indus. But now, in summer, it climbs to 30˚C, and the valley floors creep quietly with life between the russet mountains. It’s the most special place: magically remote and beautifully untouched, a place to be humbled by natural and spiritual wonder, and one that forces you to slow down and catch your breath.

    3. North Adams, Massachusetts

  • Like the dusty Texan desert spot of before it, a down-on-its-luck New England industrial town is now reinventing itself as the latest go-to creative escape. This mountainous corner of west Massachusetts was once the land of the Mohicans, where wilderness stretched north to the Arctic Circle and west to the Great Lakes. In the 19th century, it was an industrial city of cotton mills that fell on hard times. But today, North Adams is in the midst of its most surprising reinvention yet: as an up-and-coming arts hub, with multiple museums, a hip hotel opening, music festivals and a bubbling food scene just three hours from and.

  • North Adams’ original catalyst is contemporary art juggernaut MASS MoCA. Last June, the gallery/museum doubled in size with its latest addition, Building 6, which houses long-term installations from Jenny Holzer and James Turrell. The huge cultural centre also hosts film screenings, concerts, comedy and music festivals, including indie band Wilco’s biennial Solid Sound.

  • 'The Chalkroom', an installation by Hsin-Chien Huang at MASS MoCa.

    But Thomas Krens, longtime director of the Guggenheim and original driving force behind MASS MoCA, has grander plans: three museums (one by Frank Gehry, the others by Jean Nouvel), a 110-room hotel, a craft distillery and two restaurants. And a few miles down the road is the Clark Art Institute, recently expanded into new buildings by Tadao Ando, in nearby Williamstown.

    Zoran Orlic
  • North Adams and Williamstown are linked by the ancient Mohawk Trail, now Rt 2, which is crossed by the Appalachian Trail at the Hoosic River. At this happy confluence, Wilco bassist John Stirratt and his partners just opened Tourists, a 48-room hotel in a former roadside motel, an 1813 farmhouse and mill. Taking advantage of North Adams’ location near Mount Greylock and nature reserves, the hotel pushes guests to explore nature as well as the arts, promoting guided hikes and hosting artists in residence.

  • The team behind Tourists also lured San Francisco chef Cortney Burns of Bar Tartine fame east. She will open Loom restaurant this winter with a menu based around the foods of people who have lived here, from Native Americans to Welsh, Italian and Lebanese immigrants. Meanwhile, just out of town, former mill Greylock Works has been brought back to life by a pair of New York architects and now puts on yoga classes, farmers’ and craft markets and DJs, with plans to add space for artisanal food makers and a hotel.

  • The manicured quads might be empty of students for the summer but this academic city has been studiously preparing itself for its most exciting opening,, which launched on August 1st. Overlooking Parker’s Piece, where the Cambridge Rules (the first codified rules of football) were originally played, the hotel is ’s oldest, opening in 1834 as a coaching inn.

  • Now architect John Simpson, who has worked on Buckingham Palace, has sympathetically replaced the unloved Sixties and Seventies extension, adding a new neoclassical front in creamy limestone. Beneath copper-topped turrets, the 192 bedrooms – including suites named after Cambridge alumni and academics from Charles Darwin to Stephen Hawking – are classically Edwardian. Interior designer has riffed on the idea of retro student days and Cambridge’s literary heritage with leather writing desks, boating-jacket-striped cushions and vintage coat hooks, in which guests’ initials are slotted for their stay.

  • In the stately reception, the paneling is painted Cambridge blue, while the library off the bar is filled with books from renowned bookshop Heywood Hill. restaurant is headed up by Cambridge lad, and Saturday Kitchen regular, Tristan Welch and takes it cues from grand college dining halls with a tongue-in-cheek lunch trolley (Huntingdon fidget pie on Thursdays; hot British-spiced-beef reuben on Fridays), alongside updated classics such as coronation chicken, roasted suckling pig and Cambridge burnt cream for pudding.

  • Naturally in this two-wheeled town, the hotel has bicycles for guests to hop on to pootle around the lanes, so while you’re there, pedal over the Cam to, which re-opened in February after a two-year renovation.

  • It was created in the 1950s by collector and former Tate curator Jim Ede. He and his wife bought four dilapidated workers’ cottages, knocking them together and turning them into their home as well as somewhere to display their collection of contemporary British and European.

  • A new, more conventional gallery extension has been added by Jamie Fobert, but in the main house that carefully crafted domestic setting is preserved; the lemon on a pewter plate that picks up the yellow dot in a Joan Miró is replaced each week and Ede’s spiral arrangements of pebbles on a table is given as much significance as works by the likes of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. It’s a charming study in art’s place in our everyday lives, intimate and informal.

    I’m not usually the kind of person to get giddy about a. Give me the soaring majesty of hazy mountaintops stretching into the horizon any day. But here, on this beach, with the roar of the Atlantic Ocean and the mountain-like white dunes rippling behind down the coast, I was completely floored. The wildness and emptiness were heart-stoppingly beautiful, at once peaceful and ferocious.

    At low tide the ocean at Koppie Alleen heaves back to reveal a vast network of rock pools, home to octopus and crabs, urchins and starfish, anemones and giant sea snails. We were there in March, but now, in the n winter, is the perfect time to come to spot whales from the sand, as southern rights arrive to mate and calve and turn this coast into the world’s biggest whale nursery.

    This unspoilt stretch is part of the Overberg Coast’s De Hoop Nature Reserve. As well as the pretty white-washed Cape Dutch-style cottages from the set further back in the fynbos where zebra, antelope and ostrich roam, smart operator has two ultra-slick houses overlooking the ocean here.

    The latest,, opened this month above Koppie Alleen. The five-bedroom modernist house is built from concrete, stone from the nearby Bredasdorp quarry and old railway sleepers from Caledon, alongside plenty of glass framing these knockout, wraparound views.

    Inside, Dutch interior designer Janine Feikes-Butter riffed off the colours of the surrounding landscape – yellows, greens and blues – with some statement design touches. There are artwork chandeliers by Riaan Chambers made in part from beachcombed materials in the bedrooms and, in the bar, a rippling original Songololo leather sofa from Haldane Martin, which looks out to the Atlantic and the raw, elemental beauty of that very special beach below.

    2. UBUD, BALI

    Fiona Kerr
  • With all the buzz around the rapid Balifornication of coastal, the Indonesian island’s hippie rather than hipster heart, Ubud, has somewhat fallen off the radar. The navel-gazing Eat Pray Love pilgrims have finally dwindled to a kaftan-wafting trickle and quietly this place of temples and traditions has become ’s foodie hub, home to Indonesia’s sole entry on Asia’s Top 50 Restaurant List with at number 22.

    Chefs Eelke Plasmeijer (Dutch) and Ray Adriansyah (Indonesian) ideas of bedrooms decorated with grey 2018 opened Locavore in the heart of town in 2013 with a deep focus on local provenance. This rings true for the ingredients, in dishes such as goat tartare with burnt and pickled aubergine, kecombrang (a flower that tastes subtly of ginger), fermented shallots and charred coconut milk, and squid confit with XO sauce, pickled daikon, spring-onion emulsion and tomato sambal, as well as the plates and cocktail glasses they are served in.

    Last year, they added another restaurant, Nusantara, which serves regional Indonesian cuisine, and cool cocktail bar. And even more recently they have opened cruelty-free butcher’s shop, selling air-cured Bali beef and cuts of Java lamb along with house-made pickles, preserves and chutneys.

    Hidden down palm-lined roads out of town is pastry chef Will Goldfarb’s. Goldfarb quit his hit New York dessert bar in 2007 following a fall-out with investors and, after also kicking cancer, landed with his family in Bali. He opened the Indonesian iteration of Room 4 Dessert in 2014 and dishes up precision-executed yet playful European-style pastries with a tropical twist, as well as cocktails, mocktails and wine.
