Tropical paradise

Thursday - the sad forgotten sister of Friday. No one ever yells "Thank God it's Thursday". No one ever counts down the last few hours until after work drinks or the freedom of the weekend. Thursday is a plod-along day, a "let's get it over so we can go to sleep and yell TGIF the next morning" sort of day. So here is my Thursday gift to you, a virtual escape to brighten up the stolid workaday. Tamarind Beach at Paradise Cove, a compound of three houses (for vacation rental) in the tropical paradise of Vanuatu. A sophisticated taste of island life steps from crystal blue waters and coral reefs. This is one virtual getaway I wish I could make in real life.

Indigo + Ochre

I spotted this bathroom above while scouring Pinterest one day looking for brass inspiration for my kitchen. It is what solidified my decision to go with brass hardware and faucet. Shanti and Courtney of Brooklyn-based Indigo + Ochre are responsible for this beautiful bathroom and the other spaces below. Brass seems to be a favourite of theirs too, as well as incorporating ethnic finds in their designs. The combination results in timeless spaces filled with character and soul.

NOVONO - apartment #1

This is the first of two projects I wanted to share with you from Berlin interior architecture firm NOVONO. Founder and director Nora von Nordenskjöld designed this apartment in Berlin with a distinctive global vibe. Swathed in rich earth tones with a mix of ethnic and mid-century furnishings, this modern residence is serene and welcoming. I love every inch of it. (Photos: © Ulf Saupe - Done Studios)

P.S. Sorry folks, due to a shortage of entries, pets on furniture should hopefully be back next week.
