I keep dreaming about owning a cottage. Ideally, it’ll be a full-season cottage so that I can spend cozy winter weekends there doing (just about) nothing. And would I paint my cottage-cabin white? You bet! I’m inspired by these beautiful exterior and interior designs.

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:
bed, chair, desk, flowers, mirror, curtains, coffee cup, coffee pot
We’ve had all sorts of weather this fall. I’ve had to turn on the heat, the fireplace, the air conditioner, and I have even had the windows open. We even had a really warm Thanksgiving! It’s been wild! But the cooler weather is coming – and I think will be here to stay. And cool seasonal weather means many of us crave texture.
Thinking of texture, I found a ton of inspirational images to share today.

I recently came across the work of architect Jean Verville, and I was soon lost in a website of beautiful design projects. Here are some spaces that really caught my eye.

When I was at Sheridan Oakville last week (giving a talk about blogging! #WhiteCabanaGoesToSheridan), one of the students in the class suggested that I check out 1 Hotel in Miami and to look especially for the white lobby. He was certain that I would be impressed. And guess what, I am! And I think you will be, too. Just look at this space:

Absolutely gorgeous! I want to move in!
But since I can’t move in, I can design a room inspired by this gorgeous space. Here I go:
