Have a fabulous week ahead! via
I can't get this image out of my head. I think it is the combination of the colours - the claret chair, accents, the red in the rug versus the vanilla walls and the hint of grey in the sofas. The green of the plant is the perfect foil to it all. See more of this lovely house here.http://www.elledecor.com/design-decorate/house-interiors/g1535/a-dazzling-duplex/
This summer we traipsed through Sri Lanka, Bombay, Mangalore and a little bit of Goa. The hotels we stayed at had bookshelves full of dusty paperbacks, left behind by other travellers. A few in English but mostly in German, Spanish, some French. In Kandy, the B&B had as many cats as books, walls full of graffiti from visitors, and a pile of old architectural magazines going back all the way to the 90s.
None of the 'libraries' looked like this. We've clearly been staying at the wrong places.
Here are some more beautiful libraries in hotels. Maybe it's a good thing we were not in a place like the one above (Taj Falaknuma, Hyderabad). I'd probably never leave the room.
Ambassade Hotel, Amsterdam
Hotel Milano Scala, Milan
Viceroy Santa Monica, California
The Nomad Hotel, New York
