La Mer...









Welcome to beautiful, vibrant living.

Walk into an incredible escape with me... shall we say, in Capri, Italy? I think so. Now, just imagine such a place—where the water is just footsteps away, and the early morning breeze is nothing short of perfection. Outdoor and indoor living have an understanding, and both are free for work, entertaining, relaxing, and sleeping. Like nature, the sun and the water are the equation of happiness, so is the combination of white and brights. One shows the other off most perfectly and complimentary—almost like a dance. These spaces illustrate this so well, don't they? From the simple outdoor cushions and fantastic painted headboard, to the amazing display wall of a patchwork of old, old patterned tiles. These are the sort of spaces that brighten the day, the mood, and make everyday living all the more vibrant, friendly and fresh...
