Mediterranean Bath Oasis

Tuscan Project mediterranean bathroom

I wanted to share with you this beautiful bathroom I recently came across by architectural firm Myers Design Inc. and wonderful designer, Letitia Holloway. I love the old world feel with the furniture like vanities, arched windows and beamed ceilings. Notice the sunken round tub and chandelier - what a luxury!

The curved shower is just stunning. I adore curved walls - they are usually expensive to create but they are always beautiful. It really evokes an European spa like feeling.

The limestone flooring and tiles really are beautiful. Also notice that the cabinetry is more furniture like rather than built in - this also adds to the room like/spa feeling of the space. The rest of the house is equally stunning. You can see more of it HERE. You can also see more of the talented Letitia Holloway's work HERE.

Artist Spotlight - Anders Moseholm

The blue lights (5)

When I first saw Anders Moseholm's paintings while traveling in Denmark, I literally stopped in my tracks. I was mesmerized by his interpretation of interior spaces. Beautiful, stunning interiors of old buildings and libraries, none are specific rooms of course, just bits and pieces of striking architecture redefined.


Anders does not sign his work on the front of the canvas. He prefers you, alone, to enter the painting and be the viewer. In the case of the painting above, he wants you experience the quietness and beauty of the room without being distracted by his signature.

My favorites of course are his interiors. This large, blue painting above will hang in my beach house . It is striking against the all white walls. I love how his work has a wonderful blurriness that makes it seem ethereal.


I also just purchased this small painting titled "Five Red Pillows" It is a one of his more rare smaller oils. I adore it!

Dave and I had the great pleasure to meet Anders in his studio during our last visit to Denmark. As you can see Anders' work is striking and often larger in scale.
