I’m All For Playing Hooky

I’ve never been a huge believer in New Year’s resolutions. However, after taking on one of the busiest, most eventful years in 2016, I’m feeling inspired to make some positive changes moving forward in the new year. At the top of my list is a commitment to make more time for myself. It can be so hard …

Keemala

I don’t know about you but I can really use a holistic retreat right about now. One of Thailand’s most picturesque halcyon resorts, nestled in the lush forests of Phuket, looks like the perfect place for some peaceful rest and oms. Keemala‘s seven tree houses, each equipped with their own private pool, were constructed following the beliefs of …

Hôtel Providence Paris

If I’d ever have the guts to decorate my house, let alone a single room, with rich colors, excessively bold patterns and sumptuous textures, I’d imagine it would look something very similar to Hôtel Providence in Paris’ 10th arrondissement. With just 18 rooms and 3 suites, Pierre Moussié’s boutique hotel emanates old world charm and romance …

Mardi Gras Indians

Today was the last day of Mardi Gras, a celebration that has been on my bucket list for years. And now, after recently stumbling upon the mysterious world of Mardi Gras Indians, a trip to New Orleans in late February has jumped to the top of the list. I mean, the elaborately handmade and powerfully colorful costumes …

Soho House Barcelona

I always love peeking into a Soho House when I get the opportunity – it’s like eye candy for the interior obsessed. The club’s eighteenth and latest outpost in Barcelona is as impeccably designed as one would expect. Housed in a refurbished 18th century mansion in my favorite area of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, it boasts 57 …

Riad Yasmine

Tucked away above Marrakesh’s bustling medina is a quaint and outrageously stunning oasis, Riad Yasmine. With just 7 rooms, this traditional Moroccan home boasts incredible views of the Atlas Mountains from its spacious rooftop terrace and also has one of the most photogenic plunge pools in the world. I mean, how beautiful is that emerald green tile? And those bed-sized …

Casa Tiba

Pack your bags, we’re going to Brazil. Casa Tiba to be exact. This sweet little house, just paces from the beaches of Trancoso, once belonged to master ceramist João José Calazans. In 2010, retired French expatriate Thierry Moriceau purchased the workshop and restored it while preserving its Bahian craftsmanship. It’s the type of house that might encourage you …

The Estate Trentham

If I ever get myself to Australia, I’m definitely making my way to The Estate Trentham, a countryside retreat just an hour outside of Melbourne. The three bedroom house, originally built in 1902, was recently restored by design agency Gardener & Marks. Designer Lyn Gardener’s style of mixing old and new, and love of neutral colors, natural elements and raw …

48 Hours At Andaz Scottsdale

Every time I visit the southwest, I fall deeper and deeper in love with the desert. My first trip to Scottsdale earlier this month only intensified my infatuation. The incredible experience can be credited to a midweek getaway at Andaz’s newly opened resort, the Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Spa. Set within a 23 acre desert oasis, near the base of …

Ceylon Tea Trails, Sri Lanka

My sister recently returned from her honeymoon in Sri Lanka and stayed for a few days in the country’s central highlands at an incredible resort called Ceylon Tea Trails. The resort is made up of 5 different bungalows that all belonged to British tea-planters during the 19th century. Each bungalow has preserved its colonial-era architecture and is …
