A Year at High Tide

Low Tide on Koh Rung
Henry Beston wrote about his year on the great beach of Cape Cod in a lovely book, The Outermost House. His year was one of experience; the weather, the surf, the birds, how the sand shifted and storms boomed.  His last chapter was about the great adventure a year in outer nature was and in reflecting back he said for him it was a year at high tide.  Well, you probably know where I am going with this, my year is at an end and it was an adventrue and experience; a different culture, climate, new friends and students.  A year at high tide.  These pictures are what I mean by high tide.

  6. Painting towards inspiration by Monique Lafi

    According to reliable furniture shop in Phnom Penh construction materials information, designer Monique Lafi took cue from the beach, the palm trees and the sun around the area of the featured space to create a classical theme with fascinating colors.
    "Crispness is often associated with a beach aesthetic, so I chose to accent the base colors with white to keep everything fresh. Slightly muted tones on the walls reference the classic style, which incorporates a muddiness in the colors, and the combination of both lends a very contemporary feel to the interiors. That way we established a comfortable modern style."
    "For this project, I added a lot of ambient lighting – wall sconces, lamps and the like – as a way of contributing to the overall warmth of the spaces.
    "Materials too, are prime to establishing warmth. Carpets were replaced with hardwood flooring throughout. Woods with burl accents or a pronounced grain also lend visual interest to a design. Above all, these elements have the timeless appeal the client was looking for."
