a shelf full of collections from Tracy Garet, books, vases, dishes
john barman's collection of books
I'm always drawn to interiors which have more of the collected look -to me they're like extentions of the owner's persona and more interesting than a bland room. In life, everyone tends to be either very self-reflecting or outwardly reflecting; Perhaps the minimalists collect thoughts or feelings and leave the tangible posessions to us collectionists? One set appreciates internal beauty while the other appreciates the wonders of the world, but can these 2 camps ever mix? I don't know, but till I figure out why I'm a collector, I'll just keep enjoying!

I visited in 2003 and took these pictures: on the surface, it looks like it would be a great place! Can't travel the globe? Go to Vegas and check out the far east.......... or the Grand Canal, Venice!
How about take in the dessert views from atop a spinning restaurant straight out of the movies (we made the mistake and stayed in this hotel, oy)
