I started today's entry with the intention of talking about Biomimicry but instead I find that I have to talk about summer first. March is here and its scorching. The weather outside has taken dominance over our lives. The summer has made its presence felt and I have no option to but talk about it. As the weather changed miraculously on day of Holi so have our lives.

Summer makes us think of holidays away, fun recipies that wont put us to sleep post lunch, naps in the afternoon ( preferably not at work ), crisp linen, lily ponds, chilled citrus drinks, a pool, ice cream, blue skies, bougainvillea and the sea.

A very long long time ago March used to be the first month of the year and was named Martius after Mars, the Roman god of war. In March we celebrate Holi we celebrate Women's day and this year Earth Hour will take place on Saturday the 27th of March (Earth Hour is when you turn out your lights out for one hour. It was started by the World Wildlife Fund three years ago a billion people participated last year).

No matter how busy we are or what's going on around us at the end of the day our overriding persistent and un ignorable thought for summer is about " getting cool and staying cool".

An option for a Stylish Holiday: Capri......
J.K Place Capri with a rich history dating back to the 1870's seems to be a luxurious Hotel with great design keeping it well in touch with today's day. This sea side place has beautiful colour scheme and the decor is both traditional yet contemporary. Makes me think of a very stylish Audrey Hepburnesque holiday spot.It has old world glamour but is also verry current .
The toweling upholstered wing chairs in particular are a fun and creative detail. The blue walls are a great colour scheme for a beach side place.
