Hotel to Home: Casa Cook Rhodes, Greece

I’m making note of the Casa Cook hotels now in case I ever make it to Greece in the future. Casa Cook – part of the Thomas Cook travel company – currently has two hotels in Greece. Casa Cook Kos is opening in July, and Casa Cook Rhodes has been open for about a year.

Both hotels look to be uber stylish, luxurious, and welcoming. I’m only showing you one of the outdoor spaces at Rhodes today, but I’m sure you’ll drool over the design of all the other spaces, too, if you have a browse through the gallery.

If you have an outdoor space that you’d like to spruce up this summer, maybe give these items a try to recreate the ease of this gorgeous Greek hotel.

Hotel to Home: Hotel Eden, Rome

Andiamo a Roma! Let’s go to Rome!

Specifically, let’s zip on over to the Hotel Eden for a luxurious stay in one of the hotel’s classic rooms. The layers of white, cream, and beige makes each room warm and welcoming.

While it may look out of reach, this design can definitely be translated into something affordable. A mix of high-low (as is my usual favourite) is something to aim for (hello cashmere throw!).

Hotel to Home: Quirk, Richmond, Virginia

I’m taking us back to the United States for today’s hotel-to-home post because I recently learned about the Quirk Hotel, and I was eager to recreate the design. Let’s head on over to this charming boutique hotel in Richmond, Virginia.

Hotel to Home: The Jefferson, Washington, DC

We’re traveling to Washington, DC today to check into the luxurious Jefferson. The hotel has high ratings, and absolutely stunning suites. The decor is traditional in style, but it doesn’t look stuffy or intimidating as I find sometimes can happen in these types of spaces.Jefferson-Washington-Hotel

I had a go at recreating the space. Here’s what I came up with:


vintage upholstered bed, slipper chair, side table, Bergere chair, lamp, cashmere throw, orchids, pillow




Hotel to Home: Design and Wine Hotel, Portugal

We’re heading over to Portugal today to check into the Design & Wine Hotel in Caminha.


I do not know how they do this, but the room rotates with the sun! Isn’t that the coolest thing? It sounds pretty high-tech to me!

The room (I think it’s shown in black and white in the photo above) has a ridiculously simple design. The use of multiples (in the art, water) is very striking and easy to recreate at home. Here’s what it inspired me to put together:


art, sheet set, blinds, water, glass

Hotel to Home: San Giorgio in Mykonos

Feel like jetting off to Mykonos? Yeah, me too. Let’s go take a tour of the luxurious-bohemian-styled San Giorgio!


San Giorgio – Mykonos

Oh, right, we can’t manage a trip to Mykonos at the moment, can we? Well, we can recreate the breezy bedroom look at home though. Here we go!

Travel: Edson Hill in Stowe, Vermont

I saw photos of Edson Hill on Erin Conner’s Instagram account, (such a pretty bedroom) and I flipped out. The place looked stunning on my little ol’ iPhone 4S, and I was eager to check out Edson Hill’s full site and offerings. (I obviously have traveling on my brain these days…my mind easily wanders to hotel and travel websites!)

The rooms are very well-appointed with a mix of modern and classic furniture, pretty lighting, and cozy linens. The fireplaces add warmth, and the mixed collection of art adds interest to each space. The bed in the first photo below definitely caught my eye!
