Accent Lamps - Bamboo, Hats, and Shells

There was this subtle feeling of an island in all rooms of the hotel. Natural elements like bamboo, hats, and shells mixed with hardwood became very fashionable lamps, crafted by local artists.

"A poet once described friends as the 'sunshine of life'. I myself have found that the day is much brighter when I'm sharing it with my friends."
From the book "Laughter and Latté"

WOW! This blog is a marvellous surprise box! The problem is that with my current time restrictions to travelling, I don’t know when to find a moment to visit all these spectacular spots. Looking at your pictures, I become even more convinced that the motto of my blog – «It is not such a small world!» – is becoming increasingly more accurate…
Look forward for that recipe of moqueca de camarão! Paul Bocuse, Alain-Ducasse, Marc Meneau & Co…Beware!

Dear trotter, I hope to keep finding interesting things to post here, and keep you coming back! As for the recipe, I might post it some time! Take care.

What a great idea you had, Cris, capturing the different lamps at the hotel! You are developing a great knack for finding interesting themes... Way to go! ;o)

Cris,
What an interesting mixture of lamps you've shown us! I've never seen any like these!
:)

Cris said...

Cinara, thanks, you know how much I love crafts and I couldn't help it... but take pictures!

Susie, actually I think I saw them this big for the first time too and I was impressed...

Connie said...

Each piece of lighting is a work of art...Love them. Thanks for sharing.

By the way I have the book "Laughter and Latte" and I really like it.

Take care,
Connie

Britt, I found them quite different from what we are used to see.

Connie, this is such a small world!
