It is coming up to 4 years since we last went to Europe & UK I can’t believe how time flies. Therefore, today I am dreaming of another holiday, escape to London. Located in a sought after region of London, at the southern tip of Covent Garden in London’s art, culture and design district, the ME London 5 star hotel surprises due to an original modern design. The contemporary accommodation unit was developed by Foster + Partners and features 157 guest rooms including 16 suites. The apartments located on the upper two levels come with access to spectacular terraces and extensive city views.
I thought I share some of my instagram photos of what I have been up to this week. While my baby is still very comfy and overdue three days now I have been doing alot of shopping and catching up with friends and I wandered around this gorgeous city taking in all of the beautiful sites that it has to offer – it really is such a wonderful city! This week I was being a tourists in Sydney, I always wanted to explore Sydney a little more like a tourist, I think there is something wonderful about trying to see the city that you live in through a tourists eyes! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week so far, I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to –Enjoy your weekend. ox
Seriously guys, is there a happier day than Friday? With the weekend ahead I am getting in a really happy mood. Whatever the plans – shopping, meeting friends, cinema, museum, blogging, or just relaxing and staying in – weekends inherit the power to boost and regenerate our energy and get us all ready for new adventures. Happy weekend, friends!
I hope it is as beautiful and warm where you are as it is here! Trying to enjoy last couple sunny summer days in Sydney. This weekend I will be spendings lots of time outside: enjoying the sunshine, having breakfast with a friends, visiting a beautiful baby stores, and strolling around. Have a great one, whatever you might be doing!
I’m proud to present one of my blogger friends’ efforts here and invite you to see some awesome work by Belgrade Streets photography. I invited Andy to answer a few questions about his work that I have been following on his blog. I found it hard to pick my favorite photo on his blog so here is a couple I have chosen that I think sums up Belgrade Streets so well. A fresh, personal view of the city that is completely honest, and confounding to much of Serbia’s reputation. Great to see photographers, under their own motivation, creating their own work under their own voice, and finding ways to get it seen on their terms. I’m looking forward to seeing more from this photographer. Here is 10 @ 10 with Andy.
Randy Bens Architect developed the House on Chilliwack Street, Vancouver, Canada the new residence combines highly modern features with a touch of traditional, reminiscent of the old structure: “The existing house was too small for the family, so a new floor was added containing a master bedroom, en suite, office and deck. The new upper floor cantilevers in two directions, and compliments the lower (original) cantilevered portion of the house.”
The exterior of the building reveals a geometric combination of cubes and rectangles with clear stained cedar siding and contrasting blue stone. Once inside, a sense of openness takes over the entire space: “The house feels very spacious in relation to its actual size. There are three ceiling heights used throughout the project. Careful window placement allows walls to be washed with light and views to be controlled“. The living area is the core of the home and facilitates the transition between the indoors and the courtyard with swimming pool.
The Levin Residence in Marana, Arizona has been designed by Ibarra Rosano Design Architects.
Description from Ibarra Rosano Design Architects
Three simple rectangular volumes hover above the desert floor, oriented to harness the sun, frame the views and capture the breezes. In much the same way a photographer crops an image, the house organizes the landscapes into intelligible formats, which focus and celebrate the environment. The plan organization is based on simplicity, functionality and “collapsibility”, enabling the house to be operated as a smaller home when the guests are away.
Slowly winter is approaching on this side of the world. . . (even to I am a summer person myself) I wouldnt mind escaping here for a while. This amazing holiday home in Aspen would be perfect to spend the weekend in belonging to Aerin Lauder. The granddaughter of Estée Lauder and founder of her own lifestyle brand on beauty, basics it’s no surprise that every room has a beautiful understated style about it … and the location is just gorgeous!
