Whenever I go on vacation, I inevitably come back with some little tidbit of design that I want to share here. On a recent trip to the DR, I saw this simple but lovely detail in a hotel lobby. The nautical hardware and rope detail not only add whimsy but a functional element – keeping the back cushions of this bench from sagging.
It all comes together in this overall shot, with the oversized seashell mural and textured chandelier. It’s nautical, but in a fresh, cool way. This image brings me right back to the bright blue waters of Cap Cana!
