Let's go to Brazil

My sweet blog readers! Isn't this a lovely day for a celebration in Brazil? Today I take you to the Uxua Casa Hotel. This is a compound of nine renovated houses, two restaurants and a spa opened by Wilbert Das, the creative director of Diesel, in the Brazilian fishing village of Trancoso.

The Uxua Casa hotel is located in Transcoso's UNESCO World Heritage ‘Quadrado' square. Stay in your very own one, two or three bedroom self-catered casa or the Uxua Casa Hotel. Don't miss a trip to the newest edition spa, or a dip in the seriously cool crystal lined pool, that sparkles by day and glows at night. If you do feel beach bound, a five minute walk from the Quadrado will bring you to sandy Brazilian shores. For details and rates visit Uxua Casa Hotel.

Happy weekend lovely readers! What are you up to this weekend? I have a busy weekend! Today I went out shopping with my friend Claire in The Hague. We had lunch in the lovely Deluca bar and after that we did some X-Mas shopping. Tonight we'll have a pre-X-Mas party with our friends. But before I leave you for the rest of the weekend I would like to share some lovely decoration ideas that I came across today: Dutch designers duo Victor & Rolf created a X-Mas collection for the Dutch department store de Bijenkorf. This lovely collection in black and white is inspired by fairytales. I just bought some of the decoration items. They are so lovely! What do you think?

Simple and elegant, the decor has a design pieces such as sofas by Piero Lissoni for Cappellini or table, and pieces with custom-designed by architect Duccio Grassi, such as mobile low living or library wall.

The use of natural materials combined with the choice of light colors and accentuates the brightness of the environment, emphasizing the light coming from the two terraces overlooking the historic city center.

Italian beauty in white

Have you been in Rome lately? I haven't been there for a few years now but it is on my wishlist again!! Look at this beautiful restaurant TUNA in Italy's capital city. This clean and white interior leave enough room to serve some lovely Italian seafood. And as the name suggests they serve a perfect tuna plate.
