LEFT identity |

LEFT is a concept store designed by arthur foliard that offers cultural products related to left-handed people in order to give a different point of view about them. LEFT gets people interested in left-handed people through their center of interest: literature, theater, art, music, objects, etc. it is also the opportunity for left-handed people to get objects that suit them.

why I love this design

my design aesthetic is very minimal. i either stick with black and white, use solid, deep rich colors or patterns.. no pastels, no neons. i really like this design because it isn’t something i’d normally go for but the colors sold me. it feels fun and fresh. i also appreciate how the project was shot. screw a white background, go bold or go home.

wanderlust | mandalay beach resort

wanderlust | koh samui, thailand

today we go to koh samui, thailand where you’ll find some of the most captivating beachfront pool villas at the mandalay beach resort. there are seven beachfront pool villas all with their own private courtyard. surround by lush palm stands, the villas face the sandy white stretch of laem noi beach. this is definitely one of those ‘livin’ it up’ type of trips as the cost to stay in these villas is anywhere from $800-$1200 a night. but hey, yolo right?

i’d say this would definitely be a fun couple’s trip.. by couples i mean like a good two or three couple friends. all fly out to thailand and chill on this private resort together. for a trip like this it’s all about the bathing suits and evening dresses or whatever for dinner.
