We found a white sofa at a consignment shop for the living room. The trouble? It’s too blah. So I surfed etsy (a guilty pleasure & amazing resource) and found sunshine in a square. Give me a bouquet of these throw pillows to scatter on that bland beast. What’s your fave?
Part of Dr. No was filmed at the Sans Souci resort in Jamaica which, lucky for us, is still in business! It’s now a couples retreat, perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up!, and we went undercover to bring you a taste of the resort . . . plus a few ideas for bringing it home! […]
Today’s Spot On Sense-ational Style is this French laundry styled dining room dripping in linen. A retreat for the palate & the body – as loads of gathers envelop the table, chairs and windows. Imagine yourself having afternoon tea here with a cup of Harney & Sons Super French Blue Lavender perfect for relaxing spa […]
My recent visit to Golden Door Spa got me wondering how Japan celebrates the holidays. Though Japan doesn’t officially celebrate Christmas, they do love our western seasonal traditions with decorations galore but add Japanese flair. Take the Christmas Tree, many Japanese festoon it with wishes on festive paper instead of ornaments. . . a loose […]
Between all the parties, travel and other fa-la-la-festivities, decorating my own tree seems to get left till the last minute. And I think that is perfect – because 1. All those ornaments you got for prezzies can be put to use 2. You can get an awesome deal (often even free) on a live tree […]

I can’t think of a better way to unwind during the holidays than beside a candlelit fireplace like this cozy one at Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC. The robe is available in their online boutique.
One thing I always struggle with after Thanksgiving festivities is putting away all the table paraphernalia. You know, the gargantuan platters, gravy boats, the cutlery explosion (will I really use these butter spreaders the rest of the year?) and gazillions of linens? Sometimes its finding the space that gets me, but mainly a LOT of […]
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here’s a little more turkish delight decor for today’s visual feast – featuring a seating area that could host a large family Turkey Day for sure! Plus. check out the window “art” on the far right window – it’s painted on cloth so it can be shown on the fabric blinds and […]
Even if you’re serving (or eating) traditional Thanksgiving fare, that doesn’t mean the table needs to be all pilgrimified! I’ve never really been a fan of the usual gratitude gala accoutrements. I mean fall leaves? Really? How boring is that? Inspired by one of our favorite Moroccan spas, La Sultana, and the autumnal tones of […]
