    Default 'New Thai' style

    This Zen-style circle of brown pebbles decorates the driveway shared by Maya villa and another home, both built by Laurent and Chantal Broda. The couple, who also have homes in Paris and Miami, designed Maya as a series of concrete and glass pavilions that sprawl down the hillside to the Andaman Sea below.

    It's nice. I do not like the red chairs though.
    My goal is to be happy with my life.

    There's a level of tacky here that almost works. I like some of the pieces but overall I think it's absurd.

    Wow - just saw this over at the NYTimes and had to see if you had it up Honey. So spectacular it's almost alien. And the boulder - there are no words...

    I usually like Thai style architecture, but this is way over the top and very tacky.

    What's with the red genatalia chairs? Both sets. It just looks like they tried too hard, but the house structure looks cool.
