Beaverbrook Hotel

01 . 10 . 19

The Beaverbrook Hotel is a luxury British country house hotel in Surrey that makes me want to book a flight to England immediately. Beaverbrook takes it’s name from Lord Beaverbrook, William Maxwell Aitken, 1st Baron Beaverbrook, a “Canadian-British newspaper publisher and backstage politician who was an influential figure in British media and politics of the first half of […]

I’ve never been to New Orleans so I’ve been thinking of planning a trip this winter. Now that the Hotel Peter and Paul has just opened, I have even more motivation to visit The Big Easy. The hotel, restaurant, cafe, bar, library, and event space are located in an abandoned group of 19th-century buildings that […]

If you’re looking for a quiet place to get away from it all this fall, I highly recommend The Inn at Kenmore Hall in the Berkshires region of Western Massachusetts.  I have been anxiously following the renovation of the main house and property since owner Frank Muytjens and his partner Scott Edward Cole started posting about […]

Chateau de Villette

07 . 23 . 18

As with so many things these days, I learned about Chateau de Villette on Instagram. The beautiful property was renovated and designed under the expert eye of Jacques Garcia but was listed as a “private residence.” Further investigation has revealed that it is actually available for stays, private events and weddings. It has recently played […]

Cliveden House

02 . 02 . 18

Editors from London have been enjoying a press trip to Cliveden House for Sarah Chapman skincare. I’ve known about Cliveden House but I thought it was just a historic house managed by the National Trust and didn’t realize it’s also a hotel and spa. Cliveden House is an Italianate manor house located about 45 minutes […]

After a four year closure for renovations, the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris reopens today. The historic site on Place de la Concorde was built in 1758 for King Louis XV by French architect Ange-Jacques Gabriel. Apparently, Marie Antoinette took piano lessons in the mansion at one point. The Count of Crillon bought the building in 1788 […]

We don’t have that many hotels on the Upper East Side of New York so it’s big news when a landmark one gets a chic new facelift. The Lowell Hotel was always a well respected but sleepy hotel but after it’s redesign by Michael S. Smith, it’s become the new clubhouse for the uptown set. I […]

The best place to learn about new hotels is Instagram. It’s always where I see new openings first including The Ned hotel and member’s club in London. The former 320,000 square foot Midland Bank building was originally built by famed English architect Sir Edwin “Ned” Lutyens in 1924 and has been fully restored to include 250 guest […]

I recently came across the Villa Sola Cabiati on Lake Como on Vogue.com which featured it as a wedding venue. Turns out that the late Baroque style 18th-century villa vacation home of the Duke Gabrio Serbelloni, also known as La Quiete, has six bedroom suites that can be booked without getting married but other parts of the […]

It’s snowing this morning in New York so I can’t think of a better time to revisit my recent trip to Los Cabos, Mexico with THIRDHOME. At the beginning of the trip,  I was looking at all the traditional Mexican architecture with warm colors and terra cotta roofs and wondered if anyone ever designed anything white and […]
