Through a co-worker, I found out yet another fantastic-looking hotel in Thailand. This one is called the Sarojin.Just look at these pictures!
Of course, I still love the way the Buri Rasa looks. Woot!
Considering the level of quality, the cost of these hotels are actually not that bad! Even now, it would seem the US dollar can still go a long way in Thailand.
Although I would love to go to one of these hotels some day, I would love it even more if I can bring some of that styling home... to an actual home... some day.
I'll bet it can be done, but of course, the pre-requisite would be to have a home in the first place. Speaking of homes, check out these spectacular Hakka houses from China.
Of course, something like that is entirely way, way too big for me (and it was meant for a different time period). I could be perfectly content with a small dwelling, perhaps even something as small as a tool shed if it looked like this:
Well, provided that it has water, electricity, and a bathroom and all that. By the way, that parasol is not attached to the building.
