Poolside

Summer is here!  Last weekend was the official (calendar year) start of the summer.  With that comes time lounging by a pool (beach, lake) and enjoying the long days.  While here in LA, it’s been mild temperature wise (I know many across the nation are already bearing heat and humidity) – we in southern California get our hottest days (triple digits) more in mid to late summer.  I may not be lounging poolside at the moment but with these images I can certainly fantasize about a dreamy pool somewhere, out there…

Incorporating a little lucite into a room never hurt anyone.  Any piece of acrylic accessory or furniture seems plausible to work in almost any room…

Eau A Day at the Spa!

The Eau Spa located at the Ritz-Carlton in Palm Beach, Florida is probably one of the most beautifully designed interiors of a spa that I have seen in quite some time.  It was designed by the great A&D firm, RTKL Associates.
