Palazzo Dama

03 . 14 . 16

I just got back from Paris last night. I have jet lag and my bags are still not unpacked so of course I’m already thinking about where I want to go next. I saw photos of the new Palazzo Dama hotel in Rome on Instagram and in the new Elle Decoration France while I was […]

I received a frantic email from my friend Decorno (who really should start blogging again) today asking me if I heard about a J.K. Place hotel opening in Malibu.  Turns out that the iconic hotel group is setting up an experience J.K. Place Malibu for one week only, March 12-19, 2016 from 6:00-9:00pm. The website says, “Please […]

Palazzo Fendi

01 . 17 . 16

Perhaps I would have enjoyed Rome more last autumn if I had been able to stay at the ridiculously chic Fendi Private Suites Hotel featured in the new WSJ magazine out next weekend. The luxury fashion house moved its corporate headquarters and reconfigured the 17th-century Palazzo Fendi with three separate architecture firms to create the boutique hotel, their largest store, an […]

Divine Providence

12 . 09 . 15

Nothing could ever deter me from visiting Paris so I’m already planning my next trip to the City of Light for fashion week in March 2016. I’ll probably rent an apartment with friends again but if I wasn’t, I would definitely consider the Hotel Providence from Pierre Moussié. I appreciate traditionally decorated hotels in Paris and this […]

Halcyon House Hotel

07 . 06 . 15

I knew Australian interior designer Anna Spiro was working on something great via Instagram but I wasn’t exactly sure what until I saw another Instagram post from artist Wayne Pate. Turns out it was a hotel Halcyon House and restaurant Paper Daisy for which Wayne illustrated the menus. Halcyon House is located in Cabarita Beach, New South Wales, Australia and was […]

If there is any place that has made me say, I want to go to there, it’s La Mirande in Avignon, France. Pierre Frey posted two images on Instagram since some of their Braquenié fabrics are used in the hotel and now I am dreaming of a trip.  The five-star hotel and restaurant opened in […]

If I lived downtown, I would hang out at The Marlton Hotel everyday. It’s the type of place that looks like it’s been there forever when in actuality, the hotel used to be the former flophouse of Jack Kerouac and Lenny Bruce. The space has had a top to bottom make over by the keen […]

One of the places I was most excited to stay while I was recently in London was the new London Edition Hotel. It’s a collaboration between Marriott hotels and hotelier and Studio 54 founder, Ian Schrager. There are bits of it that remind me of the Public Hotel in Chicago that Mr. Schrager also designed […]

Not sure if you all know but Domino magazine is back.  The New York Times referred to this newest incarnation as Domino 3.0 and it looks like the third time is the charm.  It’s no wonder though with Michelle Adams, the founder of Lonny, at the helm. I loved the new holiday issue on newsstands […]

I thought about titling this post The Deyrolle Hotel but thought it might be a little confusing.  The Château de la Bourdaisière hotel is however owned by Prince Louis Albert de Broglie, the man who resuscitated Deyrolle in Paris twice. Once in 2001, when he bought it and again in 2008 after a fire ravaged most of the shop […]

Unplugged

04 . 01 . 13

I spent this weekend unplugged, well mostly unplugged, and it was wonderful.  I feel like I need more weekends like this to recharge my batteries and preferably outside of the city.  I found the beautiful image above on Pinterest and after a little research found out it’s from Locusts-on-Hudson, a fabulous property owned by André Balazs with […]

After a brief reprieve of warmer temps on Saturday, we’re back to feeling the winter chill in New York.  Perfect time to revisit my trip to Morocco and luxurious stay at the Four Season Marrakech.  The hotel had only been open for a few short months when we arrived and we were the very first […]

One of the reasons I always wanted to move to New York was Studio 54.  Growing up, I would hear stories of this magical place where like in New York itself, anything was possible including seeing Bianca Jagger riding a white horse.  So when I was recently asked if I would like to attend the grand […]

When Stefan and I were in Miami, we stayed at the Soho Beach House in Miami Beach.  It is the perfect place for those who want to stay in a quieter and less over the top hotel.  It felt like we were staying in a friend’s home. Before I show you the hotel itself, I […]

Vacancy at Versailles

12 . 16 . 10

Visiting Château de Versailles is a magical yet exhausting experience.  You can’t possibly see it all in one day, as much as you may try.  While there are lovely hotels in the town to extend your visit, there is none that will be as conveniently located as the proposed Hôtel du Grand Contrôle which is […]

I was sent another fabulous photo of one of the rooms that Diane von Furstenberg designed for Claridge’s today. I love that sofa! It’s very Chic!

DVF for Claridges’s

07 . 13 . 10

I’ve been dying to see one of the 20 rooms at Claridge’s hotel in London designed by Diane von Furstenberg and finally I found one online at the Times magazine. I love the double headboard effect and the patterned fabric. It’s pretty chic and stylish but then again, I didn’t doubt that Diane would create […]
