This week’s leftovers start in a forest north of Copenhagen with this terrific black cabin:

Then we’re off to the beach community of Encinitas, California for this lounge-y patio:

It’s Friday afternoon and even a short week can be cause for a TGIF post that’s long on photos and short on words. We’ll see if that’s an empty promise or not… Here are images of the Rose Hotel Venice to help get you through to the end of the day and week.

Newly refurbished as a labor of love by owner and fashion photographer Glen Luchford, this looks like the kind of place that would be the perfect hangout during my next trip to LA. It was this first image–and that fireplace in particular–that caught my attention and made me explore more about the property:

It turns out that fireplace is in the living area of one of the hotel’s suites; some of the suite’s other spaces are above. That deck area looks like a perfect place to wake up each morning.


Here are a couple of shots from another suite. And here’s me signing off until Monday and wishing you all a terrific weekend!

Have you ever been to New Orleans? It’s one of those cities I’ve visited on and off throughout my life, and if you’ve ever been there yourself you’ll agree it’s like no other place. I think the same can be said of New Orleans interior design–and certainly it’s true of the home I’m featuring today. There’s a feeling of being transported to another time and place in these spaces. I think it has to do with the colors and furnishings, but also there’s something about the way the rooms are scaled in older, deeply Southern houses that feels otherworldly. Let’s take a trip to New Orleans.

This living room displays all of the elements I was just mentioning, from the muted but rich tones to the pieces you want to touch and the intimate scale. Where but New Orleans would you have this particular quality of natural light?

The fireplace mantle is a makeshift coat rail in this bedroom. There are a number of fireplaces throughout this house–even in the kitchen.

You can see the kitchen fireplace in this image of the dining area taken from the front room. Another feature of old Southern homes is the room known as the front room–different from a living room.

The home’s simple, contemporary, eat in kitchen. The bicycle is leaning against the fireplace.

p.s. Yes, it’s a holiday here and, yes, I’m taking the day off (I haven’t forgotten my mini-rant on Friday about needing a break) but I couldn’t have a Monday without Leftovers!
