Gauzy curtains. Lacy screens. Heaps of silky pillows. Hot pinks and sunset purples and desert reds. Here's where to go when you yearn to wander (and it's a long way to your next vacation).

Luxurious and worldly is the effect here—as if you'd picked up this stuff in bazaars and dusty little emporiums. What keeps things from getting gaudy: Furniture, light fixtures and screens are scrupulously neutral, colors are sensuous and sunny. Striped and patchwork cushions combine with an embroidered rug to dress the bed playfully. A few exotic accents add to the enchantment: palms, brass trays, a bird in a gilded cage.
