"This year taught me that my loneliness has more to do with myself than anyone else. The loneliest I will ever be is when I do not have the strength to love myself."

Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.
The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).
Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.

Realistic Rendering Of Parisian Apartment
Imagine how much stress and bad design designs would be avoided if we all had the talent to depict our dream home to a tee like Talcik Demonicova has in this ultra realistic rendering of a exclusive apartment in Paris. Designed by Jessica Vedel, the chic home features a modern marble kitchen island, contemporary furniture, intricate ceiling details and a stunning free standing bath tub perched on a marble “stage”. Vedel’s nordic background has complimented parisian chick in such a beautiful way here. Enjoy the virtual tour!
This pristine contemporary home is located on the west coast 90kms north of Cape Town – bordered by a nature reserve adjoining the ocean. Sites like this don’t come much more spectacular. Taking full advantage of the ocean views and responding to the coastal dune context, Gavin Maddock describes it as ‘a glorious site’.
The client wanted a holiday house she would eventually retire to. The brief called for a ‘modern’ house with ocean views and a strict observance of a limited budget, which was to include the standard accommodation requirements.
With the front dune sitting up a little higher than the rest of the site, the challenge was to reconcile house, dune and views. The result is a rectangular double storey structure of 600 square metres with imaginatively conceived outdoor living spaces. It comprises: three bedrooms, four bathrooms, generous living and dining areas both inside and out, a gallery, casual living room, a study, decks, terraces and balconies: Ocean views exist from virtually every room. .
Given a limited brief the focuse was on two main issues: a modern signature within the budget. The architecture and interiors enjoy various aesthetic interests and were inspired by the west coast landscape which is quite textural and typified by simple white houses and cottages, reminiscent of the Mediterranean.
