• The Saint Regis Tiffany Suite Room

    From the color of the room alone it should only be too obvious that this is “the tiffany suite room” – I think I remember reading somewhere that Tiffany had actually trademarked that particular shade of blue that is their color.

    I’ve seen some crazy pool houses in my time. Structures that are clearly more of guest quarters than simply a pool house. Here’s a nice little one that is manageable, that has good storage (roof is obviously usable) – nice little shaded area underneath all in all a well proportioned addition to the home and […]
