Here's a workspace that would make mondays much less mundane...
There's everything to love about this image..the checkerboard floor..the massive windows...the iconic swan chair in the most gorgeous shade of green..and the dual-usability of the space...as a home office and vanity...
Have a great new week!

Found this lovely DIY project while whiling away time on pinterest today...which also led me to the gorgeous blog DOS FAMILY by the super-talented duo of Jenny and Isabelle. Do check it out!
All you need to make this lamp is a large balloon, some old doilies ( new will do just fine too), wallpaper glue and a lightbulb holder...You will find step by step instructions for creating this beauty here.
It's a great weekend project.I'll love to give it a shot before the holiday season really kicks in. How about you?

A mountaintop aerie on the rarefied island of St. Barts, aptly named the Peak, is the vision of fashion and beauty photographer,Wolfgang Ludes.
Even though it is only the third home design that Ludes has been a party to, yet the organization of spaces, the use of natural light and spectacular views bear testimony to the fact that he is a perfectionist and also a natural. Let's take a peak inside his beautiful villa...
|A view of the sorroundings from the pool area.|
|The living area is a study in elegant minimalism.|
|Hans J. Wegner chairs flank the dining table.|
|Wenge wood is combined with absolute black granite counter tops in the kitchen.|
|Travertine floors lead up the the wenge panelled bedroom in which a platform bed is draped in cotton netting.|
|The sitting area of the master suite.|
|The shower in the master bath opens out to a garden.|
A guest bathroom window frames a craggy expanse of the cliffside.
It is the kind of chic minimalism that I would love to embrace...maybe when we build our second home...A girl sure can dream!

We all are guilty of comparing our lives with those of others at some point...forgetting that 'comparison' is the greatest killjoy of all. Let's try and change that...it is difficult but really worth it!
Have a beautiful weekend full of happiness and contentment!

'Runway to room' posts are my absolute favourite to compose...but since they take so much time I don't do them as often as I would like..but here's one after a long long time...
Emerald green and black with a generous touch of gold-
Such a stunning combination...be it in an outfit...
...or a room...
Have a great day!
