the sunday nook {turkish delight}…

turkish delight

i always dreamt of spending my later years luxuriating in a home with a view: preferably looking out on to an angry sea or a moody mountain range…

but inner-city living has challenged me to broaden my perspective a little…

what to do when you’re resigned to spending your days looking inward? make its beauty rival what lies beyond!

& this internal courtyard is the perfect example: more delicious than any box of sugary delights & no powder coating required, this turkish delight relies on pattern plays & a restricted palette, contrasts & repetition…

there’s a rhythm & a rhyme to what goes where & why & as much as the eye dances from one surface to another, it always finds a peaceful place to rest…

a tasty treat indeed!

  1. I love interior courtyards. There was a House Hunters episode where a couple moved to Morocco and every house they saw had a 3 or 4-story courtyard in the middle. It was so amazing! It’s like your own little hidden oasis. Pretty resourceful if you can’t pop a few lounge chairs in your non-existent backyard, I say!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
