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?
Though January is over, we’re still obsessing over Dr. No’s (our James Bond film for January) escape. For instance, it’s kitted out with copper. From the automatic sliding pushbutton doors, to the elevators and walls, bright shiny copper glams up the place. Spas are no stranger to copper either. With a gorgeous aesthetic and renowned […]
The end of January is upon us and it’s our last few days of Dr. No spa style (February will be “The Spy Who Loved Me” month!) And we haven’t finished saluting Dr. No’s fortress. Who knows how to hide away better than the bad guys? Don’t they seriously always have the best digs? […]
This week, in our search for James Bond bliss, we’re focusing on Dr. No’s evil underwater lair. Think living inside of a giant aquarium would be relaxing? Did you know that watching fish swim can drop blood pressure up to 10 points? Well, we think the inhabitants of this spa house must have the lowest […]
Well it’s January and we’re welcoming it with a No – Dr. No that is – this month’s James Bond theme is the very first caper. As I watched the trailer below, something caught my eye right away. The bedding that the villianess is lying on. . . it’s got a metallic gold ruffle on […]
The Izek Day Spa on Lakeshore in Oakland, CA decking it out a la disco with striking orchid lavender and silver palette – that tree is spa-velous! Note the deer around the tree too cute! How can you “spa”scape the area round yours?
If you are more of a retro spa stylista you will crave this lime and white decor so sixties! It really sets off the gray without being overly frilly and keeping clean lines.
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 […]
Our pre-Thanksgiving tour of Spa House Spots in Turkey continues, with the Yenikoy Mansion an example of modern Turkish decor. Though the kitchen’s cabinets and tile are traditional, the room is anchored by a steel range hood and ceiling. Definitely a taste specific choice, but embodies the spirit of Turkish design – courage to mix […]
Thanksgiving is impending so let’s talk Turkey! From now until Thanksgiving our Daily Spots will present a feast of rooms from Turkey. This room was inspired by the two tulip chairs – yes look closely they resemble tulips! Do you have any furniture that vibes a flower? Share in the comments! We also love the […]
