A Hidden Jewel in Trancoso - CASA TIBA

I was struck by the beauty of design of the villa captured in this photo above. When I first came across this photo on an online interior magazine a while ago, the villa was introduced just as an example of beautiful architecture and interior design. I was like "wow, this is my dream house" . . .

Restored fisherman houses, natural/reclaimed materials, Brazilian craftsmanship and antiques, a flowing transition of indoor/outdoor living, along with the concept of preserving the local traditions and environment… all of the elements in this hotel make me smile.

This lovely hotel located in 'Quadrado', the center of Trancoso, Brazil, represents laid-back southern Bahian lifestyle. It's not difficult to imagine that if you stay here, you will feel like local. That's what I want when traveling.

Rustic, chic, simple, natural… are the keywords I'm always drawn to. Every single element of this vacation villa in Trancoso, Brazil, pleases my eyes. The villa has warm welcoming atmosphere, yet sophisticated in details. No wonder. This beautiful house is completed by a New York based interior designer.

House Without Walls - Vacation Home in Hawaii

This one of a kind vacation home located in the heart of Honolulu, Hawaii, which was originally a designer's private villa, is now available for rent for your own vacation.


I stumbled upon the pictures of this open, airy, spacious, simply and tastefully decorated bedroom years ago, and it's been on my wish list to stay here with a group of friends or family ever since. I just can't believe it's in Waikiki, and you can walk to the beach.
