Bottega Veneta Living

Often I'm drawn to rooms and furniture laced with interesting lines, texture and color. However,  I'm currently admiring the Bottega Veneta home furnishing line, Salone De Mobile 2010, for its sleek minimalistic design.

Many of the pieces in this collection are innovative, functional and artistic.  BRILLIANT!

Two unique suites at the St. Regis Rome and the St. Regis New York house many of these pieces.

An Evening with Mary McDonald

I enjoyed a nice quiet evening tonight with a cup of hot tea, a great movie and Mary McDonald's book,

We are seeing COLOR as the buzz word in all the magazines for this Spring's fashion 
so I thought I would feature some projects where McDonald too, uses bold colors.

She is the master of blending classic art and traditions with bold color and pattern, adding a touch of whimsy and fun to each space. It would be very hard to walk into a room designed by Mary McDonald and not smile. 

Her work is delightful, beautiful and timeless.

As the onset of winter seems to have just begun, I find myself dreaming about a little sunshine, a run on the beach and relaxing pool side. The BETSY hotel, in Miami, is just the place I'd like to go!

It's a small boutique hotel, rich with history and overflowing with punches of color, texture and orchids. The prefect get-away!

Heaven at the Beach

I found this property in Turks & Caicos and fell in love. I admire the architecture, the minimalist approach, the charming pops of color, the landscaping, the seclusion, the lighting- all of it.

Does anyone know who deserves credit for the design?
