Glamping Interior in India

For those of us that must do everything in luxury and style Glamping.com has taken the ability to book the most stylishly-in-tune-with-nature getaways you can imagine. Want a tent in India with pluming and leather furnishings? Done. With locations in North American, South/ Central America, United Kingdom, Africa, Europe, Oceania, Asia and the Middle East you’ll find an exotic destination with a resort like glamp site that will suit your fancy [ ..and oh how fancy it will be!].

Below is the interior of the tents at the resort Aman-i-Khás, located north of Jaipur on the outskirts of Ranthambore National Park in India. As sanctuary for India’s exotic wildlife, Ranthambore is one of the best place to see wild tigers in their natural habitat. The tents and resort is just as impressive as the wildlife surrounding it. I love the leather, wood and white theme that keep the safari decor spirit alive while remaining minimal and luxurious.

Summertime is smoldering here in the south where beating the heat vs looking fresh are at a constant stand off. Keeping with the aesthetic of my earlier post Steal His Style, this is a more feminine way to go in the casual menswear direction. My button up short sleeved shirt is unisex, from american apparel and its tucked into high waisted, black ,distressed, denim shorts, that flatter my legs. My favorite studded boots always give me that edge and flash I love. Add a bow a la Cult Gaia for extra flirty fun. Overall this is a effortless look that’s still on point for more casual outings.

White Washed Stable House

Transformed from an old horse stable into a charming country residence in Alcácer do Sal, in the Alentejo region of Portugal.  Architectural firm Atelier Data are the masterminds behind transforming this rural building to a contemporary  private residence. The stable was stripped clean, preserving only the beautiful sloped wooden ceiling and exposed beams.  Contrasting the original wood the walls were painted white creating a bright and fresh feel.  Decor and furnishings were kept minimal and linear, also designed custom by the firm Atelier Data.

A Grown Up Tree House

German design studio, Baumraum architectures, has been designing tree houses for adults [and kids] since 2003.  They are real houses built between the branches, thus capturing the best landscape. Each house begins pre-fabricated and sized for a smaller living space explains Andreas Wenning, designer and heart of Baumraum, everything else is customizable; materials for the interior surfaces,  furniture etc. The installation is done without damaging the trees. There are no nails or screws that could damage the logs but rather systems such as fabric belts or steel cables that do not impact the branches and allow trees to grow undisturbed. All homes are custom made so the cost depends on the requirements. Tree houses built range from 10,000 to € 120,000, yes euros. Construction time ranges from 3-7 months with the only obstacle being obtaining permits, which are subject to local laws.

The featured tree house below is located in Puglia, Avetrana. The owner lives and works in Milan and wanted to expand their house for rental use: it features 8 square meters of indoor area with views of the surroundings. The interior is a minimal/ modern aesthetic. The wood interior surfaces bode well with the outdoor greenery and the modern furniture with modular pieces work very well in the small space.

Mid-Summer Pastel Dream

_ZKP3158 _ZKP3172 _ZKP3270

My background in the performing arts definitely comes out in my personal style.  From all the tulle, rhinestones and wigs I’ve worn in my day, I totally dig temporary, dramatic change. This summer I’m having a lot of fun with pastel hair. The trend has been underground for years, only just surfacing on the heads of celebrities and in fashion editorials in recent years. If the permeant fairy hair isn’t a feasible option in your 9-5 routine there are temporary sprays and colors that wash out after one use! Be daring and have fun this summer with a little color! Happy Weekend ❤
