This week's favorite links are dedicate to special places around the globe. Little havens that are inspiring, and welcoming. Places where food, design or nature are valued and celebrated.
- GASP (pictured above) is an amazing concept of park, arts center, family spot and nature. An example that should be followed...- Next time I'm in New York I plan to head to 22 Howard St., the home of "Smile", a take-out restaurant where simple, delicious Mediterranean recipes are the rule.
- As a book lover, I love shifting through these photographs of the most beautiful libraries in the world. Stunning!
- If you are not the kind to enjoy cookie-cutter Holiday Inn type hotels when you travel, this wonderful list will lead you to some truly unique and beautifully designed hotels around the globe.
- And lastly, the story behind the Smith Mansion is quite different (and a little heart breaking) but peering inside the seemingly chaotic exterior you can tell this is truly a home.
Here's to a wonderful new week!
