A green oasis in Venice beach, California

Photographer Philip Dixon created this Moroccan style retreat almost 20 years ago and it looks likes something out of a dream ! I am especially impressed by the magical garden and the calming water; the incredible river like pool running through the house. The inside/outside features of the house with the different spaces blending in together is another wonderful part of the house.  This sanctuary reflects his unique vision; a finely tuned aesthetic of minimalism, natural beauty and ethnic accents.

It feels worlds away… Have a look for yourselves !

Pantone’s 2016 Colors

For the first time ever, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity was chosen as the PANTONE color of the year !

Pantone 2016

“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace”

Pantone anticipates the color pairing will work well in both fashion and in the interiors. Here is some inspiration of the new color combo :
