I'm off my friends, to Vieques, Puerto Rico for a much needed week of R&R. If you're not familiar with Vieques, it's a small island off of Puerto Rico and is also known as an unequivocal Heaven on Earth. The beaches are so seemingly untouched, horses roam freely all over the island, and the only traffic obstruction are mangoes falling into the streets. And even more inspiring is the house in which we're staying which belongs to the fabulously talented, Donna Gorman. The home was featured on the cover of Metropolitan Home last summer and the pictures below are from that spread. Donna along with architect, John Hix, designed the house to be completely off the grid which means all the power for the house is drawn from solar panels on the roof. The fabrics shown are a combination of Donna's line, see, as well as Marimekko prints.
I mean, it's drop dead, is it not? Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait.
I'm sure as heck bringing my camera to snap about a zillion or more photographs as well as my laptop but Internet connection will be an interesting feat. I will try my absolute hardest to check in when I can. I'm already planning out meals filled with coconut rice, cilantro, mangoes, and mojitos.
I'll be tweeting regularly (no surprise there), so follow me on Twitter.
