My stunning picture of this Sunday is about well known 'Angel Falls' in Canaima National Park, Venezuela. The picture was taken at night by Jane Sweeney.
Water plunges more than 2,600 feet over the edge of the Auyantepui Mountain. With a total height of more than 3,200 feet, Kerepakupai Vená, also known as Angel Falls, is the highest uninterrupted waterfall in the world!
Remember when I said to watch this space for more 'South America' posts? So here you go...For this weekend, we are heading to Capella Ixtapa in Mexico! :-)
Capella Ixtapa is a five star hotel located in Ixtapa. The resort has the view of the beach and is full of the Mexican style that you will definitely enjoy. It is definitively a romantic retreat that will give you maximum relaxation!
The view of the beach is amazing, and you can enjoy sitting on the comfortable chaise lounges to enjoy the amazing view and the warm breeze. Hmmm...Lovely!
The whole hotel and its suites are made of wood, and you can see food and thatch everywhere which is really amazing and complements the natural style. Suites are luxurious and are furnished with the best designs. Thatch covers all ceiling, and all pieces of furniture are made of wood which reflects a cozy ambiance.
Each suite has its private pool, and LCD. You will also find dining sets that overlook the beach, so that you can enjoy a nice dinner in this amazing atmosphere!
Plants and gardens are also widely spread in the hotel, even in the suites to give a nice decorative touch. One of the amazing decorative touches is the presence of coloured flowers that give a splendid nice touch to the place.
My today Interior Design post is about this East Coast Bachelor Pad.
This gorgeous modern apartment is located on the East Coast of the United States, South Carolina in Myrtle Beach. I absolutely LOVE the concept, the tangerine color and the chosen decoration with a welcome touch of vintage for this pad! Great design!
The dining room used deceptively easy ways to boost the style. White floating shelves disappear into the white wall, making their contents and the large abstract artwork above them the stars of the show. What a beautiful artwork!
Sandy feet are no match for the flooring in this entryway. Tile was the perfect choice here. I love the idea of keeping here the seasonal necessities, such as towels, goggles, and sunscreen, at the ready for beach-bound family and friends.
Aiming for a masculine color palette, a brown and white base with pops of bright tangerine was chosen. Love the fact flippers become stylish decor. Quite inexpensive beach decor to make ourselves, don't you think?
The Functional Kitchen
Look at the chandelier!! So beautiful! And I think the simple concrete floors make cleanup a cinch in this kitchen.
They use industrial-style metal shelving for additional storage space in the kitchen. The aluminum trash bin was powder-coated in orange to make it a little more fun. Great effect!
Colorful Living Room
Decorative screens powder-coated orange create bold geometric wall art. Stunning patterned pillows and a retro-feel lampshade in the same color reinforces the theme. Love this room!
Love the circle-theme wall art and the reflective end table. They bounce sunshine around and brighten the room.
My picture of the Day was taken by Mihael Grmek on top of Šmarjetna Gora. It is a solitary low mountain rising above Kranj on the right bank of the Sava River. The mountain is approximately 646 meters high (2,119 ft).
From this vantage point, we overlook Škofja Loka, a beautiful small town in Slovenia of about 12,000 inhabitants. Today it stands as one of the best preserved medieval urban centers in all of Slovenia and was proclaimed a cultural monument in 1987.
My Art post of today is about Zou's Gongbi Paintings which are highly appreciated by many people in the world.
Gongbi Paintings, literally "detailed strokes", are paintings characterized by fine brushwork. Gongbi is a technique in Chinese painting.
Zou Chuan An is a well known Chinese painter and his works are marked by virtuosity and elegance with powerful vitality. He has captured the charm of expressionistic brushwork and meticulous details.
He is the prominent representative of the Gong-bi style in flower-and-bird.
Bird-and-flower painting is a kind of Chinese painting named after its subject matter. Normally, most bird-and-flower paintings belong to the scholar-artist style of Chinese painting. According to Chinese tradition, bird-and-flower painting covers flowers, birds, fish, and insects.
It can thus deal with a wide range of natural topics, including flowers (plants), fish, insects, birds, pets (dogs, cats) etc. My kind of topics!
