{sometimes I..

forcast alternative realities.} And that isn't because I dislike the one that I'm in.

My own place. One mondo studio apartment maybe on the 40th floor of some incredible high rise in some exquisite city. I'd love to take a space and create a soothed, enjoyable, refined piece of heaven. Keep things simple. One GIANT bed; fluffy pearl comforter with a toppling stack of soft white and champagne pillows, silky sheets and perhaps a creamy canopy.

All around this beautiful bed would be some kind of intricate and vibrant persian rug. Deep purples and maroons, warm blues, maybe some dashes of jeweled mustard yellow. White plush carpet everywhere but the kitchen (which would be wood) An open vanity to one side or the other. Dark cherry wood desk, Galano stool, large oval mirror and maybe a Victorian Filigree lamp, a tall skinny vase sporting a variety of wild flowers. In the cupboards and draws I'd have all the essentials, along with every organic spa treatment for anything you can think of.

An open closet and shoe rack with a dark cherry wood divider creating a dressing area in some corner. There wouldn't be a phone, a TV, or a computer. Just a small book shelf with all my favorite reads and sketch paper and pencils, and perhaps some other writing materials.

The kitchen.
One hanging pots and pans rack, and cupboards with everything else. Fridge stocked with fresh fruits and veggies, yogurt, chilled water. No carbs, no sugar or candy-with one exception-dark chocolate. The whole idea would be to have some kind of get away. A place to find some peace and quiet away from the world and just disappear for a few days, weeks, or months to go back to basics. Cleanse.

I've tried to make the space I have today into a soothing environment. But if resources weren't an issue I would HAVE this place somewhere on the planet to escape into.

Write about the space YOU'D create. I'd love to read about it.

  1. Sounds heavenly... I want to be there right now! I'll have to write my ideal space sometime when I'm not half asleep! :)
