Inside Out - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

Sub­scribe to If you’re any­thing like me, you’ll no doubt be cap­ti­vated by this month’s dreamy cover im­age... There’s noth­ing I love more than a chance to es­cape (how­ever rarely!) to a spa-like re­treat, and this stun­ning bath­room – with views to die for – at the Man­darin Ori­en­tal Bo­drum (see more about this De­sign Des­ti­na­tion on page 68) sums it up for me: not only be­cause it prom­ises pure pam­per­ing and re­lax­ation, but be­cause it has style cre­den­tials in spades. In­deed, this month’s spe­cial on Bliss­ful Bath­rooms (page 54) is all about cap­tur­ing the essence of a ho­tel-luxe look at home, and in con­tin­u­ing the over­all theme, the team also name their favourite lo­cal spas that have the wow­fac­tor, es­pe­cially when it comes to beau­ti­ful in­te­ri­ors (see over­leaf ). Of course, no mat­ter how spa-like or zen you may in­tend your own abode to be, if it’s full of the flot­sam and jet­sam of ev­ery­day life – and by that I mean clut­ter! – a feel­ing of har­mony willl never pre­vail. Your prob­lems may bbe neatly solved on page 62, how­ever, wwhere you’ll find some of the best stor­age op­tions around. Fi­nally, I hope you’re also in­spired by this month’s re­al­life homes, es­pe­cially the lovely villa in Ara­bian Ranches. A stylish new scheme has seen it trans­formed into a calm, re­laxed space – per­fectly in keep­ing with this is­sue... Re­lax and en­joy! for just Dh99 SHARON PAR­SONS mags.gulfnews.com
