Star Light, Star Bright

I am so loving all the Paper Lanterns that I spotted this weekend in Goa. They are providing me new inspiration. Although, they are traditionally a Catholic decoration and very common here in India, I’d love to see the lanterns used as interior decor.

This talented photographer has captured them exquisitely.

I can see the all white one used in bundles or how about this Morrocan star lamp that I found on Apartment Therapy? This light really adds something to the room.

Since Goa is a beach-y place, I’d love to add some of these to the sea and surf room I am currently designing.

Goa + O Hotel

I’m sinking into relaxation mode in lush and festive Goa. My visit here officially feels like a vacation with expansive views like these.

Staying at the O Hotel has felt like an exotic retreat.

Some amenities here include an infinity style pool, rain shower, and spa. Mostly, what I like is the unique architecture and art.

As I am posting this, I sit in the restaurant lounge sipping Masala chai. Above, is a glimpse of the airy restaurant from dinner last night. They offer tasty Asian, Pan Asian, and Chinese cuisines.

Now, onto the highlight of the morning, if I had to pick….

was stumbling into Buddha Arts, a lovely shop located right on the main road. Filled with antiques and treasures…

It’s a trove of sculptures, salvaged panels, and extraordinary novelties. If you are like me this is the really good stuff.

This window built to shelter a deity, and hanging sculptures are just some of the interesting finds. I took home a patchwork pouf, elephant bookends, and antique carved mirror that I cannot wait to find a home (pictures of these are on the way;)

I hope you have all been transported here, for a moment, if only for a tea.
