Deetjen’s Inn

Big Sur Lodging Boutique Hotels Inn Unique Vacation Stay (15)

I’ve wrote about Big Sur and all of it’s magical qualities before and my last visit was just as serene. The hubs and I were there not too long ago for a friend’s wedding and we decided to stay at Deetjen’s Inn. This inn is a place of simple luxuries with a lot of history and is a must visit during a stay in Big Sur, even if it’s just for a meal. Put your cell phone away (since you will most likely have zero reception) and get ready to decompress, slow down and enjoy God’s country.

Seriously, used a phone book and payphone at the Library to connect with some friends in the area. No cell phone reception is sometimes a good thing.

Bodega Bay Bound

Gettin’ out of the city and channeling my inner “Birds” at a cute, little cottage in Bodega Bay. Make sure ya’ll don’t labor this weekend…have a good one!

Curacao

Finally getting around to posting a few photos from my honeymoon in the Caribbean. Andreas and I took off right after the wedding (which I highly recommend if you’re getting married) to the island of Curacao and it was the most relaxing week ever. The goal was to “vacation” and not “travel” and I have to say I’m really into vacationing now! The need to constantly be doing or seeing something was easily avoided because there wasn’t a ton to do on this island, unless you were crazy into diving, so a lot of lying around happened.

Although, we aren’t really resort people, we decided to make it easy on ourselves and stay at the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort because there was a beach and golf there. Seriously, the easiest vacation I have ever planned. This was our view every morning and the pool was just a few minutes away.

Although it was in the high 80s, Andreas braved it onto the golf course a few times. I came one day, too, to fulfill my dream of driving a golf cart.

I took an obligatory photo in front of the Curacao sign, and then we found a “Dushi” sign, which we never figured out what it stood for, but I wanted a photo in between my initials.

And because Andreas likes to make me do silly things, I took a photo on this iguana’s tail.

I fell in love with all the colorful homes throughout the island. There are no beige houses here…

The days that we didn’t feel like exploring the many other beaches or driving into town, we just popped a squat under a tree at the resort’s beach. I saw a crazy fast white crab one day. Easy peasy. Honeymoons are going to become an annual thing :p

Brass Monkey Chairs

A pair of these bad boys will be in the shop soon. Re-loving in progress…

Bikini Island

Studio Aisslinger Werner Aisslinger Module Modern Furniture (6)

Modular furniture has been around for quite a while, but never has such furniture functioned as well as the Bikini Island from Studio Aisslinger. Bikini Island is a modular cluster of sofas and tables that support a variety of activities from watching tv, meditation to answering emails. Sofas have generally been one directional, basically designed so that we can all stare at our tvs. Nowadays, people inhabit their spaces in many different ways, and these islands help create more human interaction while also making lazying around a lot more comfortable. The pieces that make up the Bikini Islands are all movable, swivel-able, and free to live as part of the bunch or used solo. The modularity of the design is fun (love the color blocking effect!), modern and pretty much a godsend for studio dwellers.
