sabbatical in Santorini

I’ve came to the conclusion months ago that I need a vacation.  Believe it or not, I haven’t taken a day off since July.  With lows in the 30’s this week and all the craziness that is the destruction of our new home, I’m ready to just fly away to somewhere warm and pretty, preferably away from everybody and everything, where I can prance around in a swim suit without a care in the world.  What better place than Greece??

All of my daydreams came true when I stumbled upon this unique home in Santorini while looking through Elle Décor’s website this morning.  Please, take me there!

design obsession: moroccan style

Morocco: A magical land, rich in history, culture, and charm.

It’s no secret that it’s top 10 on my bucket list.  I dream of traveling to Marrakech, strolling through the marketplace, and photographing architectural and scenic wonders that are like no other.

The style is timeless.  A constant influence to so much of the design and fashion world today.  The attention to detail is impeccable, from the arches and architecture, to the refinements of the tile and latticework.

So naturally, I adore anything inspired by this amazing place.
