Experiences of nature shaped this inspiration of this bathroom in a 19th century high ceiling home located near Amsterdam: the traits of water, the interaction of gentle and shadows, frost and decay, taking into consideration the ageing from the room and the supplies.

Sunseeker International has created the new 22.6m (74ft) Manhattan 73 yacht following the same design ethos of the renowned Flybridge Manhattan motoryacht range, which is a unique combination of packing innovation, luxury and performance.
The spacious interior, both in the main and lower deck levels, includes three ensuite double cabins, including a full beam midships master suite, together with a fourth twin cabin. Besides featuring plenty of accommodation for the owner, family and guests, there is also a further option for a separate day head on the lower deck. The crew accommodation is accessed from the aft end and ensures complete privacy for guests, while the cabin offers accommodation for two with a separate head and shower compartment.
The forthcoming Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show will be held at Excel London from 7-16 January 2011.

Window displays to die for, whether its Fortnum and Mason and its delicious pastries and christmas suppers...
or Selfridges with its playfulness...
or Harrods with its Vintage fashion and Peter Pan concept...
London's Christmas spirit is not to be missed...

I am immensely proud of being a South African. This beautiful country amidst its social problems has so many amazing landscapes to offer. From the wild bush where the Big 5 lie around all day to Durban and Plet where you have the warm water from the Indian ocean at your feet and finally to Cape Town with its infamous vineyards and amazing sandy beaches that give you a feeling that you are somewhere in-between Cote d’Azur and a South American rain forest.
If you are a wine lover and want a beautiful and relaxed getaway I have a suggestion to make; the Delaire Graff Estate, one of the leading restaurants and boutique hotels in the world, is situated on the highest crest of the magnificent Helshoogte Mountain Pass linking the Cape’s two leading wine districts-Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Guests are able to dine on the terrace under a canopy of pin oak trees or within the restaurant designed by David Collins. Guests can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Stellenbosch valley whilst sipping high quality wine.

Ralph Lauren recently opened a new flagship store in Paris, situated on Boulevard Saint Germain. The 23,000 sq. ft. space caters to most of Ralph Lauren's staple collections as well as watches, accessories, and even a restaurant whose "raison d’etre" is to serve the best burgers and brunches in the city. Sporting a classical façade rich with carvings and, on the interior, parquet floors and timbered ceilings, the building has been restored over four years to recreate the grandeur of the period when it was built...The brand's storied tradition looks to be carried on into this new space, which celebrated 47 years of history under Ralph Lauren's belt.
