This 12-acre paradise of gilded domes and scalloped arches in Marrakech, named Palais Namaskar (Hindi for "I bow to you") is fit for royalty! Serene suites, villas and mansions, whose images are reflected in shimmering lakes and pools, inspire a Moghul resort kingdom unto itself, with the Atlas Mountains serving as a backdrop. The breathtaking castle in the sand also boasts two gourmet restaurants as well as a luxurious organic spa. Aladdin couldn't have wished for more...

Canadian artist Patricia Larsen who is known mostly for her minimalist, abstract and zen like paintings also has the simplistic touch in her home as well. Located in Mexico, the desert locale provides inspiration for natural and earthy furnishings. The sandy color palette is easy on the eyes creating a paired down simplicity that is nothing short of serene. A perfect recluse where she indulges in her art, Larsen's home is a haven for pure creative reflection.

Located in the forest, close to Ubud, Bali-Indonesia, the breathtaking Panchoran Retreat is inspired by nature. Creating environments that are difficult to distinguish between the interior from exterior, only recycled or sustainable materials were used to create this haven. This private hideaway has 6 houses scattered amongst the land with magical views of the valley and a bamboo forest. A paradise of an alternate living, Panchoran is a holistic and idealistic way of life that one should defiantly experience for themselves. LOVE.
