Oh... the sound of palm trees, the smell of sunblock, the hot sun, and the feel of the sand on my feet is all I need right now. Of course, it's a plus if all of that comes with a 12 room villa, overlooking the ocean and great food. Casa Bonita Tropical Lodge is located in Barahona, in the south of La Hispaniola.

Visitors from the past





I love how an antique portrait can bring so much character and history to any room. Each of these rooms convey an air of importance without been intimidating.

Steven Randazzo





I posted about Steven Randazzo a while ago. I liked his photos so much that I decided to visit his website again and what a delight to find new photos. They are all gorgeous.

A dream Kitchen

I love everything this kitchen has. Coming from the Caribbean, I grew up with stone floors, cane chairs, wood beams and antique wood tables. So every time I see an interior including all or some of these favorite things of mine my heart suddenly starts to gallop.
kitchen design
What a range... for God's sake. Isn't it beautiful?

Mine in white, please





Good Monday, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I wanted to start the week with one of the things I like the most, which is dressing my bed in white. To me, nothing says cleanliness and hospitality than a bed dressed in white. I always keep mine in white because it makes me feel, regardless of the day I've had, that I'll have a relaxed, cozy, refreshed night sleep. It's that point in design where, whether modern or traditional our taste, many of us seem to agree on.

Things I wish for you

A fabulous big fat ice cream on a cone.

A space/time for yourself, to reconnect and to be in the moment.

And a serious beauty nap. Regardless what your plans are, have a great weekend.

These photographs by Debi Treloar evoke peace and romance with a pinch of nostalgia. Just lovely, sigh!

Benjamin Noriega Ortiz





I forgot how I came across Benjamin Noriega Ortiz. Perhaps because I was smitten with the balance and slenderness of his interiors. His work mostly includes two to three color tones, but in different degradations, hence making everything so calm and relaxed. The touches of gold, lucite and silver add glam and sophistication to his spaces. Pay attention to that glamorous floor lamp on the fourth picture. Isn't that detail gorgeous?
