Mediterranean arches embrace comfort & serenity beneath them. A room with built-in sofas reminds me of Cyprus where everything is village-like in Lefke.
These pictures are from a Greek suites-hotel that seems to be genius at capturing the Mediterranean design spirit: Olive trees, white, and a dash of serenity.
Volcanic stones contrast with white-painted walls and arches, while wooden doors peer over a sky-blue pool. I can smell the fresh air. This is a great place to enjoy a cup of tea with white cheese (Jibneh Bayda), and sesame bread, called ‘Ka’ak’ in my Levant dialect… and of course, tomatoes :)

My boho bracelet carries memories from the Levant. A cowrie seashell from the ‘Barjees’ fabric-based board game (famous in Turkey, Syria, and the Levant), nestles happily on a leather chord, next to wooden and seed glass beads. The relatively over-sized clasp is my favorite signature item used in most of my handmade bracelets. In the picture’s center, the natural-looking wooden bead reminds me of cardamom, often used to aromatize bitter-sweet Turkish coffee.
