Tomorrow is only a day away

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

I have a suspicion that mother nature is trying to tell us something? crazy shit happening all over the world.

With all of this going on I need to check out for a bit. So Im jumping on a jet plane and going to Koh Samui in Thailand where I will have a pretty awesome view of the lunar perigee as well as drink many many many cheap beers and rainbow coloured cocktails – and be the receiver of daily massages.

Usually when fella and I travel, we do the budget accommodation thing where we pay extra for the bed bugs. Not this time!

This time we are being a bit fancy & staying in a beach front villa with our own swimming pool.  I cant take any of the credit for the location – we are going with a group of friends for a wedding, some super traveller friends found us all a crazy bargain – 50% off! sweet deal!

Ahh.  So while the world turns, the next 10 days for me will be go a little like this:

I will be spending A LOT of time in this pool – my villas private pool thank you! I plan of rolling out of bed straight into the pool first up to freshen up, cool down,  chill out, sober up  and for every other reason and no reason at all!

In all likeliness there will be a lot of over indulging, so I will do my best to read at least one book -even if I dont take it all in…I will at least turn the pages? (um, I’m hoping there is a comfy sofa or day bed behind that coffee table!)

At least once: because it would be a wasted opportunity to not bathe under the giant moon in my outdoor bath.

Bathroom details ….its pretty picture!!

Its quite probable that I will be found lounging upon these:   a cocktail or 2 in hand, with my posture getting all the more slumpy as the day proceeds!

Watching the sun set from the other resorts swimming pool -this one has a swim up bar. Uh oh – that could be trouble!

AS that cute little orphan Annie sang – “tomorrow, tomorrow its only a dayyyyyy awayyyy.”
Annie Bring it ON!

oh, and mother nature:  I’m listening.

As it was, and so it is

With my long absences from Designalogue, I kinda feel the need to prove that I am indeed keeping busy and not just ignoring the blogosphere.

So here is the proof. Some before and after pictures of recent projects:

um. In case you are wondering – This most certainly is a before shot.

And then after:

Bedroom before:

And yes. that IS a poem on the wall. (no apology from me for the blurryness of the picture -something about poems on walls gives me the shakes!)

Bedroom After:

The bedroom chandelier is a pretty special peice made from walnut and brass and uncovered in a marked in Italy by the clever Nicholas & Alistair

Now I’m on the blogging roll….onto another project:

A large living room that was quite open to the street and barren of furniture and personality:

(oh the red thing is not a vase or decoration…thats my handbag!)

And after….

That’s all from me for now. But I will be back tomorrow to share something else I’m quite excited about!
