Fun for Your Toes

I want a room with a sand floor. It doesn't have to be a big room, just large enough that I can walk around a bit and perhaps throw down a beach towel and have a rest.

The only other requirement would be a door to keep the cats out. They'd probably mistake "relaxation" for "defication". Those "ation" words are tricky for the felines.

Gee, Bob, this new design inspiration seems rather random, no?

Perhaps, but not if you head to the Barbican's Tropicália exhibit and spend some time in Eden. Shoes and socks come off, and you wander through a sandy maze of tents and cabanas with textured floors. Rocks, water, cushions and other tactile treats provide a playful pedicure.

Surely there are worse ways to spend a rainy afternoon.
