A cafe/ vineyard/ restaurant in Khao Yai! We enjoyed some Italian flavors in Thailand. The owner of this vineyard loves Italy hence the idea of bringing some Italian flavors to Thailand. Made me want to return to Rome/ Florence.

In Sag Harbor, New York, designer Michael Lee and friends Alex and Sue Glasscock converted an 1865 Second Empire?style town house from a triplex back to a single-family residence. The Glasscocks — he owns a private equity firm; she is an organic farmer — have been renovating houses with Lee for 14 years.

What a handsome pair of horseshoe armchair. Meant for the export market and maybe that's why the height and size is slightly larger than the normal Chinese Horseshoe armchair.
Each with rounded back inset with open fretwork panels centered by the "wan" symbol; raised on straight legs joined by stretchers.

Colonial Sights in Singapore....
"A Sensitive Restoration Reinvigorates a Historic Colonial in the Heart of Singapore"I have to say this is one of the finest examples left in Singapore. My first encounter of these colonial houses was when my mother took an alternative route home. Was i only 7 then? I can't recall but i know i was still very little and yet they remained quite vividly in my memory....
A pleasant surprise! This home has such a distinct flavor...! Asian Flavors....A long side black lacquered top Bamboo table adds so much character to this hallway!
More Bamboo pieces littered around the bedroom. I love how book shelves are paired.
