Raz first look into fave home decor guru,
Andrianna Shamaris's apartment located on Central Park South. Loving the simplicity of the space, mixed with Balinese antiques in-layed with mother of pearl. Gorgeous shimmer, open layout and that view of the park! Yes heaven awaits.

Song Saa Private Island is as seductive as the name implies. Think intimate. Think luxurious. But above all think harmony – with all the elements of nature that make this place so special. But all this luxury and exclusiveness comes with a price tag: Song Saa is for the wealthy castaways only! The resort spans the islands of Koh Ouen and Koh Bong, connected by a footbridge over a marine reserve they have established to safeguard the islands’ reefs and marine life including dugongs, seahorses and exotic species of tropical fish. Most of the islands remain undeveloped – deserted oases of virgin rainforests, tropical reefs and glistening white beaches. Guests can explore the islands’ reefs, wander among virgin rainforest and lie on the pure white sands of Song Saa’s beaches. Though the interiors will be all high-end contemporary minimalism, the villas will also draw inspiration from traditional Cambodian fishing villages, especially with features like thatched roofs, and rough-cut natural wood and driftwood being used in the furniture. Bottom line: this is pretty close to paradise as one can get!

Since RAZ was away for the month of August 2011, decided to give you guys some of the best summer inspired interiors from all across the globe...Especially for the ones like myself, that could extend the season a little while longer
One can dream...


In 1986, Aperture first published Bruce Davidson’s Subway—a ground-breaking series that has garnered critical acclaim both as a document of a unique moment in the cultural fabric of New York City as well as for its phenomenal use of extremes of color and shadow set against flash-lit skin. In Davidson’s own words, “the people in the subway, their flesh juxtaposed against the graffiti, the penetrating effect of the strobe light itself, and even the hollow darkness of the tunnels, inspired an aesthetic that goes unnoticed by passengers who are trapped underground, hiding behind masks, and closed off from each other.”

In this third edition of a classic of photographic literature, a sequence of 118 images (including twenty-five never-before-published) move the viewer through a landscape at times menacing, at other times lyrical, soulful, and satiric. The images include the full panoply of New Yorkers—from weary straphangers and languorous ladies in summer dresses to stalking predators and the homeless.
