Getaway: Khao Yai , Thailand

Each villa has a private pool villa facing the forest....

Bathroom is accessible via the living room and the master bedroom.

Each villa had its own private pool....right in the middle of a forest!
The Mist Bar at Kirimaya.
Khao Yai is a mountainous area, known for its great weather and greenery. It was a pleasant birthday surprise K gave to me. Thoroughly pampered! Possibly one of the most relaxing trip ever. There is just something about Khao Yai that makes you want to slow down and enjoy every bit of it. Images above: Kirimaya resort : Muthi Maya( pool villas)

A random artsy boutique hotel we spotted while searching for food.
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.

Bamboo Element.

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. Above: Works on paper by Robert Gwathmey, top, from Sotheby’s, and Jafe Kaldi hang in the music room over a bamboo Ralph Lauren sofa, with Henry Calvin fabric. (March 2008) AD

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.
