I am dashing from here to there, from one task to another, from left to right. And between the dashing around, I find my two seconds of peace by looking at beautiful spaces. And when I find beautiful spaces, it's but obvious that I need to share them with you.
So here goes, sharing my favorite spaces from the home tour archives of The Design Files.
Will be back with more next week. Have a great weekend folks!

Just the sound of it
A home in Bali
Induces a deep longing
For places far away
And for your own little space
That you can call home
In one of these far away places
Especially if the home is as eye catching as this one
Welcome to Brigitte Raben Olrik's home
Deep longing induced?
My job here is done! :)
See you again soon!

We are 10,000 plus on facebook!
Please excuse me while I repeatedly exclaim and do a happy jig!
This calls for a party, and a celebration with friends!
All of you 10,000 & more splendid peeps
Plus my perennial favorite store and dear friend, Jaypore!
And before the world runs out of exclamation marks
Let me calm down a bit
Thank you! And hug you! And send flying kisses all over!
Jaypore continues to be fabulous and continues to bring to us truly beautiful hand picked products from India. It's the one shop from where it's impossible to return empty handed, impossible to just browse, impossible to just window shop. The array of goodies is too tempting and too unique to resist. These are just some of my favorites from their current collection; shop the rest right here.

Art galleries and quaint shops
Old Portuguese homes
Mojitos, agave and beer
Intense conversations & inane chatter
Photography & music
Cats and dogs
Bike rides through the country side
And more rain

Monsoon and the Sea
Is what's calling out to me
Along with invites from some lovely creative folks
To visit their beautiful galleries, boutiques and B&Bs
So I am off for a week
To take it all in
To get soaked in the rain
To meet these fabulous people
To capture my experience in pictures
To bring back another wanderlust story for you
And to put my feet up and drink mojito
It's only apt that I leave you with some coastal decor inspiration from Greece
Given Aqua is the flavor of the moment!
The jaw dropping beautiful spaces by Zege Architects

I'll see you after a week
Hoping for rains for those who are parched
And some more sun for those craving for a couple more months of warmth
Be good folks!
