The Friday Five: When You’re Feeling Sick

I feel as though I have been fighting a sickness all week. Maybe when I finally slow down this weekend, it’ll finally take over. Hopefully not!

If you’re like me, when you’re feeling sick, all you want are…

cozy blankets – Doris Leslie Blau

lots of tea – Bea’s Cookbook

an oversize sweater – Damsel in Dior

my bed – as seen in Style at Home

flowers – Erica Cook

Have a great weekend, everyone!






Hotel to Home: White Ivory Bed and Breakfast, Bangkok, Thailand

I don’t think I’ve taken you to Bangkok yet on this hotel to home series. Shall we go check out a bright bed and breakfast? The White Ivory looks clean, inviting, and sophisticated.

Hotel to Home: Four Seasons Palm Beach

Today, I’m taking you on a virtual trip to the Four Seasons in Palm Beach, Florida to check out the gorgeous creamy suites and to then offer a recreation of them.

The living room in this suite is done in shades of white with hints of wood and gold. The view is spectacular, too, isn’t it? I would never close those lush curtains if I stayed here.

The bedroom is done in the same creamy palette, and the beachy artwork brings in the greenery from outside. The hints of wood and gold from the living room are brought into the bedroom through the desk and lamps.

Hotel to Home: Stripes in Rio

How did you like the first edition of my new Hotel to Home series? Last week, we travelled to Portugal’s Farol Hotel. It has stunning views and fresh interiors, doesn’t it? Well, you might need to put your dream vacation to Portugal on hold while I take you to this bold hotel in Rio de Janeiro.

Are you digging the stripes and the bold black and white? If so, here are some things you can do to transport this look into your own home:

What do you think of the stripes in this room design? Could you live with them? In your bedroom?

Marketplace: Essential Items for your Bedroom

Last week I featured five beds, and while I think this is the major component of a bedroom, it’s not the only thing that makes a bedroom special. Here’s a round-up of ten other items that I have – and really enjoy having – in my serene white space.

White-Cabana-bedroom1. bedside lamps (via Ralph Lauren Home)
2. crisp white bed linens (via Zara)
3. collection of white containers and platters to corral jewelry (via CB2)
4. carafe (mostly for show, if I’m being honest…I don’t actually use mine, but it does look neat) (via CB2)
5. vintage dressers and vanity (via 1stDibs)
6. a selection of comfortable pillows (via Bed Bath & Beyond)
7. mirrors (via Crate & Barrel)
8. collection of vintage silver trays to collect bits and bobs (via 1stDibs)
