Travel - Amanyara - Turks & Caicos

Being a designer has created a few challenges for me, most notably an ongoing struggle as my pocketbook and my desire to be surrounded by beautiful things are at odds.  At home I am driven to be immersed in good design, and when I travel, I want to stay at gorgeous places.

Amanyara Resort - Providenciales, Turks & Caicos
Having this well-developed appreciation for good design creates an active filter as I experience everything.  Can I just say it…I’m very picky!!  I have heard on more than one occasion that buying a gift for me is challenging – sorry family and friends. When I travel I spend hours searching for accommodations that are fabulous. I can’t just stay anywhere – I am travel snob.  Big time! 

What am I looking for?  I search for good design that won’t make my eyes hurt and interiors that won’t make me feel uncomfortable.  I want to relax and enjoy just being where I am.  Interior design – it’s not just a job – it’s more - it’s a lifestyle.

Last year we traveled to Turks & Caicos for our vacation and I loved it!!  The beaches are wonderful, the snorkeling is fabulous, the climate – the best, the people are welcoming and gracious, good food and…LOVELY places to stay.

While we didn’t stay here at Amanyara (we rented a very private villa) I thought I would share a bit about this stunning resort on Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos.  I think the design is wonderful. The various spaces relate well to one another, interior and exterior are seamlessly married, the furnishings are restful, tasteful and just plain beautiful, and my spirit hums when I see these images.
