Hotel to Home: Boscolo, Nice, France

I realized earlier this week that I have been featuring hotels in this hotel to home series weekly since March 2016. That’s over a year’s worth of hotels! Isn’t that wild? There have been so many beautiful hotels that I’ve drooled over, and I certainly cannot pick a favourite! Can you?

I’m debating bringing this series to an end and starting something else (I have a few thoughts), but I’d love to have your input. Do I keep going with “Hotel to Home” series? What else would you like to see here on White Cabana? What would you like me to write about? What would you like to learn? What stories can I share?

While we’re all thinking about our next steps…

Let’s head on over to Nice, France, to look at the Boscolo hotel.

Here’s my version with the bed as really the most dramatic piece in the room:

Travel: Luxurious Hotels in Charleston, South Carolina

Next month, I am going to be traveling to the southern United States, and I just cannot wait! It’s been a year since I’ve been to North Carolina, and I have several items on my agenda for this visit.

I’ll begin with a visit with my family in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and then High Point Market in nearby High Point. In addition to these two stops, I’m planning on visiting Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia. Eek! So darn excited! Road trip, here I come!

One of the best parts of travel planning for me is researching hotels, and let me tell you, there are some amazingly beautiful ones in the south! Let me share with you where my Charleston research has taken me thus far.

Planters Inn is traditional and full of creams and whites. The tone-on-tone decor definitely works for me, and the poster beds are so very charming.

I’d agree.

This property is modern, airy, but most definitely southern.
