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 […]

Checking In

04 . 14 . 10

Most hotels are owned and run by men. And what do men know about hospitality and housekeeping? Considering that they usually stock their rooms with only five hangers, I’d say not much. So I’m happy to report that some chic ladies are throwing their hats, or maybe I should say hard hats, into the hotel […]

If The Beverly Hills Hotel is like Doris Day, then the Chateau Marmont is more like The Doors. Instead of shiny and happy, it’s dark and brooding and beyond cool. It was modeled after a royal chateau in the Loire Valley of France and since it opened in 1929, it has been the hot spot […]

One of the highlights of my time in LA was brunch with Christian of Maison21 and Becca of Rebecca June Interior Design at The Polo Lounge in The Beverly Hills Hotel. As you can see from my photos, the weather was gorgeous and we were so happy to have a fabulous table outside. On our […]

As I’ve mentioned a million times, I had an amazing time in LA! I didn’t think anything could top my trip to Paris but LA came very close! Paris was all about the architecture and beauty of the city while LA was all about the people and design stores. I definitely could not have experienced […]

Yes Please!

The clock hasn’t even struck 2010 yet and I’m already thinking about where I want to go in the new year. I just ran across photos of the Uxua Casa Hotel in Brazil that are quickly pushing it to the top of the list. The property was developed by Wilbert Das, the creative director of […]

A couple of readers who are planning trips to Paris themselves asked me about our hotel so here’s a look at the Hotel Prince de Conti. We actually stayed in two hotels so I’ll review them separately since they are located in different areas. I had a lot of suggestions from friends on where to […]

Take Me Away!

02 . 05 . 09

The temperature in New York today was 5 degrees with the wind chill and I’ve had enough. I’m ready to pack my bag and run away! I’ll probably just end up going to Los Angeles to visit friends but where I really want to go is St. Barths. I’d love nothing more than to sit […]

I have travel on the brain this week. I think it’s because I wish I was going somewhere exotic for Labor Day weekend instead of Pennsylvania, which is where I am actually going. I was also originally going to tell you about another hotel in Florence but it’s small and actually very reasonably priced and […]

To the Manor Born

08 . 28 . 07

I’ve wanted to travel to Kenya ever since I first saw the movie Out of Africa so I’ve been saving magazine articles and tear sheets for a very long time. Most relate to safaris and fabulous 5 star accommodations since staying in a tent is not my idea of a vacation but a very special […]

Recently, Anna over at Absolutely Beautiful Things profiled the most gorgeous hotel in France, Chateau Les Merles, that I am absolutely drooling over. I’m sure all of you saw her post but the hotel’s website has so many more beautiful photos online that I just had to share some of them. I hope Anna doesn’t […]
