Living The High Life.

Magnificent right? Pure bliss. This is a hotel in Singapore called Marina Bay Sands. The entire complex consists of three hotel towers that are all connected at the top by a skypark. (Not really sure what skypark is? Well, I have pictures, courtisy of Marina Bay Sands, to show you how outrageously awesome a skypark is). Every tower connects at level 23 in order to give all guest access to the skypark. The skypark is designed for a tropical escape, which overlooks the South China Sea and the Singapore skyline.  This hotel hold over 2,500 rooms and suites, which makes it the biggest hotel now in Singapore. The hotel’s great landscaped gardens stretch out throughout a total of 12, 400 meters of area (big enough for three football fields). The lush gardens is home to 250 trees and 650 different plants. The skypark is equipped with a pool, 200 meters from the ground. Could you image swimming at such heights?! All hotel quests have all exclusive access of the 150 meter (in length) infinity swimming pool, which is now the world’s largest outdoor pool presented at that height. To put things into perspective of how massive this hotel and skypark is, the skypark itself longer than the Eiffel Tower and is large enough to be its own park. It extends to form one of the world’s largest public cantilevers.

Now how about that for a hotel hmm? The architecture of it is pure genious, it is a beautiful structure itself. Actually, all of the designing aspects inside and out are marvelous. I would love to spend even just a night or two there, that would be great! I am curious of how much a stay just per night would be for there, I bet an arm and a leg. Although the arm and a leg almost seems worth it to stay there. How many people do you know that can say they swam 200 feet up in the air? Man, a nice relaxing vacation does sound perfect for right about now!

Sophisticated All Over


I love all of the white and grey. Those colors compliment each other so well, and gives the house a much more sophisticated feel. I don’t know if you have noticed, but I love the stone driveway. Also, the front door is perfect and adds to the whole arch effect in the entrance.

How stunning is this living room? It beholds so much class, I just love how clean cut it looks. Obviously this would not be the perfect living space for children because it would be destroyed in a flash, but I love it. This would be a great room for guest at parties, or to snuggle with your partner by the fire, or to read a book while enjoying the sunlight that those huge windows let in.

The pop of color from the light turquoise chairs is a great touch. The chandelier is to die for! Also, how about that staircase? Gorgeous! I would love to eat breakfast in here on a beautiful morning.

For those of you that don’t know, I love black in a kitchen. Some say that you shouldn’t go with black in the kitchen area because it will show dirt and other God knows what all over. They do have a point, but I love the look of black. The tiling on the wall behind the stove it stunning, I love how it compliments the cabinets.

From a different angle. Storage is a must in a kitchen (well at least at my house), and I believe you can never have too much storage, and this kitchen has it!

Now ladies, I will let this speak for itself. This is every woman’s dream to have a closet like this, especially a walk-in closet that his large enough to house all of your shoes on display.

I fell in love with this house inside and out. I found it on the Material Girls Blog, in a post titled Home Is Where The Heart Is. You can read the full article on their  blog. Make sure you check out more of their blog, they post truly amazing stuff. They also have a ton of great ideas for upcoming home projects.

Fit For A Queen

I stumbled across this gorgeous bathroom with a walk in closet/powder room. I can only dream of a grand room such as this.

Isn’t the tiling of the mirrors exquisite?

Loving the walls, it accents beautifully. Don’t you just want to dive right in?

In a perfect world I would ponder about my attire for the day on that seat.

I thought this brought everything together nicely. I highly enjoy feathers, makes everything seem magical in a way. The room itself is just flawless. From the angles of the walls, to the shapes being carried throughout the room is perfect. Simply breath taking. When I came across this I just had to share it with you!
