Although travel is postponed, I still LOVE finding beautiful places that inspire me. Today’s design crush is on Es Bec d’Aquila — a gorgeous finca (country estate) on the island of Menorca, Spain. It’s designed by Atelier du Pont, and as you can see by the photos below, it’s stunning!

Don Totu Dimora Storica is an 18th century palazzo turned six bedroom B&B in Puglia. I love how the texture and color of the exterior walls acts as the perfect backdrop for the different varieties of cactus, lavender and other plant life. Super gorgeous and inspiring!

There aren’t many times when I pause during a meal and wish time would stand still; when the stars align and you take note of everything. The moment is perfect. This is how I felt when I experienced lunch in the mountains of Majorca. Surrounded by hundred year old olive trees, with views of the countryside, I enjoyed typical Majorcan food with family and friends…perfection.

My daughter walking Poncho up the mountain.

One of the very old and beautiful olive trees.

Love the stone wall and gate!

The view

Flavored salts

The fireplace in the old shepherd’s hut where the food was prepared.

I want one of these!

My sister and I with the man responsible for putting together all this wonderful food.

The famous Majorcan dessert, Ensaimada.

Cheers to a great day!

Happy Friday! If you’re looking for a place to unplug, unwind & get healthy in a gorgeous setting then the The Ranch Malibu is the place to go. I came across it several years ago because I love the work of Scott Shrader who did the landscape design for the The Ranch. However, as you’ll see in the photos below the interior design is just as beautiful!

Have a great Weekend!
