A house built in Turkish Caves...

Laura Prusoff and Nurettin Mantar's House built into Caves in Turkey
After watching Indiana Jones when I was younger I fell in love with Petra, and following a visit to a cave Monsetry in Cyrpress I became obsessed with the idea of living in a cave, well a house in a cave.

This little dream of mine is actually the reality for Laura Prusoff and Nurettin Mantar who live in this beautiful Cave  house in Turkey. It really is so beautiful isn't it? Although they have built a modern front to the property the cozy cave dwelling is still beautiful and the old cave walls are still visible.

A splash of Colour: Hot Pink

Decorating with colour: A splash of Hot pink
Hot Pink Textiles including Hmong from Thailand
A splash of Color: Hot pink

I gotta be honest I am not really a pink kinda gal, just like Vanilla Candles, I find pink sickly and a bit over powering. However just a splash of hot pink to an otherwise muted colour palate actually looks pretty darn cool and with it's exotic feel may even help fight off those cold weather blues :)

6 Dreamy Attic Bedrooms....

attic room of my dreams
Attic bedroom with a great view
Attic Bedroom: I love the natural wood and the chandelier combination
Tiny Attic room made into one large bed
awesome romantic attic room
As the nights start to draw in and the temperature begins to nosedive there is only one thing on my mind... hibernation! and there is noting more cozy than a wooden beam ceiling, a large cozy blanket and candlelight.

The top picture is my all time favorite room and I think was the inspiration for starting Moon to Moon all those Moons ago. Wouldn't you just love to lie there and look at the stars?

Treehouses: Free Spirit Spheres

The Melody Sphere at Free Spirit Spheres Vancouver Island

How great are these Globe tree houses? They are called Free Spirit Spheres and are  set among the tall trees of the west coast rainforest of Vancouver Island, Canada. What makes these beautiful Sphere treehouses even better is that they are also holiday lets :)

"The motion in a sphere is a slow gentle rocking when the wind blows. The rope tethers are almost vertical which lets the treetops move considerably while hardly moving the sphere at all. The sphere movement is a muted average of the movement of the 3 treetops. When another body inside a sphere shifts his/her weight the motion is abrupt. This is because the mass of the sphere is low. "

... sounds heavenly doesn't it?
