Dreaming of far off places!

Brrr - we've just had the coldest weekend in the UK for a long time! I didn't want to leave the house and my mind couldn't help but dream of far off places!

Thailand is one of my favourite holidays ever - we went in 2008 and cant wait to go back.  We love staying at design hotels and this one called Indigo Pearl in Phuket was one of our favourites places so I'm going to share with you some of the design details...

The hotel is inspired by Phuket’s tin mining past and Indigo Pearl’s architecture and the decor evokes a Thai factory of a century ago.   It has an industrial chic meets Thai vibe using materials such as rough timber and sleek polished metal, and a palette of ochre and rouge.  It had such stunning lighting and tiling
The rooms with the industrial details such as the light fittings and dark wood were beautiful and there was so much attention to detail. In the bathroom even all of features such as the taps and the water glass fitted with the theme and i love the splashes of red and green which lighten the dark palate and the use of texture, those white cushions and that wood work well with the industrial headboard.
It makes me want to go back!

I don't blame you for wanting to go back; this place looks immense! Love the blue sofas in the lobby! xo
