Navid Baraty-NYC

I am looking forward to spending some time in NYC over the holidays.

New York has always been one of my favorite cities and the place I feel most at home. I love these images of the city from renown photographer Navid Baraty. These seem to capture both the beauty and chaos that are the essence of The Big Apple.

Enjoy the holidays wherever you might be spending them!

Pantone 2013

It looks like Pantone and I are on the same page, as they recently named Emerald Green the color of the year for 2013. They describe the hue as "a color of elegance and beauty that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony,"

Here are some more inspiring emerald images from the world of fashion, art & interiors:

Alpina Gstaad

The Alpina, a $337 million dollar luxury hotel, just opened last weekend in the famous Swiss ski village of Gstaad. It is the first five start hotel to open there in over a century. The hotel will feature a 20,000 square foot spa, two pools, a movie theater, wine room, three restaurants and 56 rooms. Strict building codes required the hotel to fit in with the nearby chalets so it was constructed out of wood salvaged from old farmhouses and limestone mined locally. The rustic chic interiors seem a perfect pairing to the picturesque views that surround it.
