Hotel to Home: Palazzinag, Venice

Let’s show some love to the land of gondolas today, shall we? I’m taking you inside the luxurious Palazzinag hotel in Venice.

Executive room

Here’s my interpretation – complete with Venetian mirror, marble topped bistro table, and unique Fornasetti chair.

Hotel to Home: Round Hill Hotel, Jamaica

Did you hear the news about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spending some time in Jamaica to celebrate a friend’s wedding? While I definitely read an article or two about the public outing and relationship status, I happily clicked onto the website of the Round Hill Hotel and Villas – the site of the wedding. There are so many beautiful spaces in this luxury hotel, but I’m zooming in on a beautiful white bathroom for today’s hotel to home post.

I never tire of a white bathroom.

Hotel to Home: White 1921, Courchevel, France

When I was living in France in my 20s, I joined a group on a ski trip to the Pyénées. I was fairly adventurous at the time, and even though I wasn’t much of a skiier, I was eager for the trip. I remember having a great time overall, but what I remember the most is going on the wrong chairlift, being dropped off on a mountain that was way too advanced for my skills, and walking down the mountain. Not fun. But also sort of fun because I was with a friend and we laughed as we hiked down. I think I have only skied once or twice since then. I think I’m more of a cross-country skier or snowshoe fan at this point in my life – even though I’ve never tried either.

All things considered, though, if I found myself in the ski area of Courchevel, France, and staying at the White 1921, I’d be happy. Look at the views! And look at this bright, modern bedroom.

Here’s my take on the look:

pendant light, wall decals, bed, duvet cover, Nespresso, pillows, rug, sheet set

Do you have any successful – or challenging – ski stories you’d like to share?

Hotel to Home: B2 Boutique Hotel, Zurich, Switzerland

We are traveling to one of my favourite countries today – Switzerland! While I spent most of my time in the small – but extremely luxurious – town of Gstaad during my visits to Switzerland, I have been fortunate to see many parts of the country.

Zurich, for example, is one city worth visiting because of the art, festivals, and architecture. If you go, perhaps you’ll consider staying at today’s feature hotel – the B2 Boutique Hotel and Spa.

Here’s my take:

bed, bench, pendant lights, black chair, curtains, dining chair, table, blanket

Hotel to Home: Blow Up Hall 5050, Poznan, Poland

We are going back to Europe, but today, we’re going to Poland! I haven’t taken you to Poland in this series, but I’ve been coming across a lot of beautifully designed hotels there, so it’s about time we see something up-close.

Today, I’m featuring a sleek white and grey bedroom in the Blow Up Hall 5050 in Poznan.

Hotel to Home: A Little Parisian Kitchen

Okay – so today’s “hotel” is technically an AirBnB option, but let’s ignore that for a moment, shall we? It’s a place to stay while you’re traveling, and I think it’s a perfect option for today’s hotel to home post…especially since I’m working with the apartment’s  kitchen, and I rarely do kitchens (or have I ever?) on this series. Plus – it’s in Paris!

I’m not offering a full kitchen design, but more like some options for some modern and functional products for your existing kitchen. Have a look and let me know if anything strikes your fancy!

Hotel to Home: Hotel Pulitzer, Buenos Aires, Argentina

I haven’t taken us to South America in my Hotel to Home series yet, have I? I honestly can’t remember, but my hotel searches rarely take me there. Maybe I’ll make more of an effort to explore the south in 2017.

Today we are heading to the hip Hotel Pulitzer in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This hotel is glam, chic, sleek, and inviting. While I do think the bathroom design is beautiful, I’ve opted to rework one of its bedrooms.

Hotel to Home: Chateau de Berne, France

I haven’t taken us to France in quite some time in this series, so we’re going today. We’re off to Chateau de Berne, a Relais & Chateaux hotel, in the south of France.

Of course, if you can’t make it to Provence, but you’d like to recreate some of the French flair in your own bedroom, here are some ideas to get you thinking.

Hotel to Home: Airplane Luxury

Let’s talk luxury, shall we? Luxury is this bathroom:

Why is this bathroom so luxurious? Why are the windows reflected in the mirror so small? Oh, you know, it’s because this is an airplane. An airplane! (See more photos via HGTV.)

If you’re looking to recreate this look on solid ground*, the design board below might ensure a smooth take off.*
