welcome beyond

welcome beyond is a website “showcasing the most beautiful and unique vacation homes & boutique hotels around the world” or “hand-picked paradise” – as they put it. well, that’s handy.

these are the kind of places i’d fancy a holiday in… i remember staying in a similarly rustic & charming farmhouse in prince albert once. we opened the fridge to find complementary homemade cheese. i won’t ever forget that. do you want to win people over and make sure they return again and again? give them free cheese.

Have a spare room for me?

to tell you the truth i don’t look at interior blogs & websites all too often. mostly because they make me so insanely jealous and fed up that i end up closing them almost immediately. now and then i go through a binge and purge phase of devouring as much interior inspiration as i can, though – this is one of those moments.

tina

since i’m in a tina kind of mood. man, this woman is INFECTIOUS. just watch any of her live performances & you can’t help but feel your heart swell for her. they also make you want to run up and down some stairs (those legs!)

NORTH / SOUTH

thought i’d highlight the best of both worlds – since you notherners are slowly skipping into spring, and us southerners are steadily creeping into autumn. i’m sure we are both eager for a change … i know i am.

NORTH: spring flowers / beating the heat / the beach / swimming / watermelon / bare legs / lazing outdoors / shorts / ice-cream conesSOUTH: autumn colours / falling leaves / warm boots / scarves / comfort food / rainy walks / fireplaces / layering / snuggly beds
