Recently we were invited to the private membership club, Home House in London’s Portman Square. We availed ourselves to the Etruscan Drawing Room, where we slowly sunk into the soft down cushions and sipped our pink bubbles.

There is something about the smell of an old library or cracking spine of an old book. Some of the libraries shown on this slideshow have both, while others are so wonderfully shiny and new they don’t even have a dark stack to hide behind. The library at Trinity University in Dublin (shown here) is one of our faves, it’s an oldy and maybe a little moldy too!

2020 olympics are just around the corner, so Zaha Hadid’s already started on the new national stadium of Japan. Expected to be the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies, among others.

An Inspiring Photographer

Steve McCurry has been inspiring us for years. For more than 30 years, he’s  shared his vision by capturing the heart and soul of his subjects, bringing their cause to light. Currently he’s focused his lens on Ethiopia, specifically the Omo Valley region, and the plight of the children there. 

The Omo Child charity http://omochild.org takes care of children who are considered mingi (cursed) by their tribe and either sent to die in the desert or ritualistically murdered.

With donations to the charity, unwanted mingi children are given a home and an education. Talk about seeing into someone’s eyes. 

HAPPY

This video has us smiling and tapping our toes. Pretty sure it’ll put a bounce in your step too - for at least 24 hours until you hit play again. We love that such a happy song has literally inspired the globe (just look at all the videos!). 

You prefer bouncing on four feet? For that there is the happy puppy version!

How LuxeNomad-ic is this?
You’re sitting in a seated position with your eyes closed. A gentle breeze flows over you as you inhale and open your eyes to this view over Petasos, Greece on the isle of Mykonos. Go ahead exhale, and reserve your space at Edward Vilga’s June Yoga Retreat in Mykonos at the beautiful Petasos Beach Resort and Spa (aah) - www.petasos.gr

Anything is Possible

We think this is going to catch on, and then perhaps spread like wildfire. 

Take a small (or sometimes) big request and make it happen. Impossible encourages people to do things for others for free. Post a wish. Ask for help. If someone can make it come true, they will offer what they can. 

Utopia? 

Dreaming of Dandelions
These are not just light fixtures, these are highly sculptural fixtures made of bronze, LED and dandelion seeds. That’s right, those aren’t glass bulbs refracting the light just so.

Beautiful on Bermondsey

Bermondsey Street is a beautiful respite just south of London Bridge. Take in a stroll, have a bite, pop into White Cube - and definitely stop at #167, a beauty on Bermondsey.

About:

I am Shellie Cohen, a luxe nomad roaming from place to place seeking culturally rich and authentic experiences. Typically, following the path less traveled gives way to the most memorable journeys. Just as often, the path of least resistance is equally rewarding. Luxuries can come in the smallest packages: An exquisite boutique curated ‘just so’. A personal touch in what becomes a favorite hotel. Or perhaps the best cocktail - ever.

Wherever I am (and I’ve been to 56 countries), I seek out hidden gems to make each destination feel authentic, luxurious, and inspiring to easily find myself at home.
