If you’re wondering where to go next, you didn’t hear about the New W Hotel in Koh Samui. Yesterday, I was just like you – blissfully unaware. Now, I can’t seem to look away from the beautiful clouds mirroring in the infinity pool. In this part of the retreat, round lounge spaces emerge from the water to create a spectacular place to relax. Overlooking the Gulf of Thailand, this heavenly vacation spot was designed by MAPS Design studio as a collection of imagined spaces shaping a welcoming paradise. This is where I would like to do whatever, whenever -surrounded by a breathtaking natural environment, luxuriously comfortable man-made spaces and the welcoming interior design. Seems like a promise: “Because every wish and whim is meant to come true. At W Retreat Koh Samui, your wish truly is our command with our Whatever/Whenever® service! We’ll make your special moment magical and transform your dreams into reality. Whatever you want. Whenever you want it (as long as it’s legal).”
As winter approaches, there’s nothing like the warmth and ambiance a fire creates. For many, a wood-burning fireplace isn’t always an option. Luckily for you, we’ve put together a collection of the best electric fireplaces (as well as some bioethanol options) on the market in every size, style and price range so you can enjoy the warm glow and even the crackling sound of a real fire. The fireplaces featured below offer more than just a pretty image. Most have built-in heaters and blowers to circulate heat in a room. Some use state-of-the-art infrared heat, which is a less drying, more efficient heating system. And they come with a remote so you can control the heat, the flame or both from anywhere in the room.
Bookcases are a lifesaver when it comes to living small. They come in all shapes, colors and sizes. Our picks are not only functional, they’re attractive. Some ways to use a bookcase creatively in a small apartment include. As a room divider, floating it in an area to split up the space. To house collections of items to clear clutter and give a room a design boost. As a home office, with a shelf set at a height of 28-30 inches to serve as a writing or laptop spot, plus a section for a printer. As an entry, breakfast, media or sofa table. As an armless sofa bookend instead of a side table.
