DESIGN + TRAVEL | ROSA ET AL.

12_ROSA_ET_AL_Townhouse_Porto_Portugal_yatzer

ROSA ET AL is a little boutique hotel in the up and coming artsy district of Porto, Portugal and it is a complete delight. It's just 8 rooms in a refurbished townhouse. It is owned by Patricia and Emanuel de Sousa, the architect who oversaw the reconstruction, and sits on a street that is being revived by chic boutiques, farm to table restaurants and more. I also really love the way this was shot. Anyone going on any fun trips this summer? Learn more ROSA ET AL … [Read more...]

Wes Anderson designs Bar Luce.

Bar-Luce-page

Prada's new venue, Fondazione Prada- an art and culture complex in Milan, will feature a cafe and bar designed by film director, Wes Anderson. There are pinball machines, formica tables, a jukebox and a vintage candy bar. "From its green and pink chairs to the minty tabletops and pale-speckled floor, the café's design is evocative of Anderson's films, and is full of the light, pastel colors Anderson's movie sets are known for." How many times have we all marveled at the sets on his movies? Don't we all collectively want to live in a Wes Anderson movie?  "While I do think it would make a pretty … [Read more...]

Remember seeing Celerie Kemble's Dominican Republic dreamscape in last month's AD? A magical resort of 13 bungalows that she designed on 2,000 acres along a stretch of sand called Playa Grande? It's a pastellica heaven that looks like it's made of celadon icing and Chantilly lace. After AD published them, I just wanted to see MORE? Know what I mean? I knew Patrick Cline had shot the resort for Celerie months before, and we got the thumbs up to share all his never-before-seen photos of Playa Grande on the blog! I've been so excited to share this with you all, and I could hardly narrow it down … [Read more...]

My latest story for Domaine Home is up! Hillary Thomas and her team deck out a 1970's cinderblock house in Aspen, Colorado for a client with a tight deadline - ski season- and a ridiculous art collection... She sent Patrick Cline out to shoot the place, and we shared the space and her behind the scenes take on the design on Domaine Home. In the mean time, here are some of my favorite outtakes! Read all about it HERE.  I'm mildly obsessed with that bathroom. Have a great day! Photos by Patrick Cline … [Read more...]

Michele Bönan’s Casa Tua, Aspen.

IMG_4288-2

Have you ever been inside a Michele Bönan designed space? His work, including the JK Place Hotels, and the Casa Tua and Cipriani restaurants in Miami, have a very special quality about them. Even though they are commercial projects, you come away thinking: "I want to live like this."  They have a residential feeling about them, blending comfort and luxury in such a seamless way. It's not an accident, “I like to say that everyone should live at home like they’re in a hotel, and in a hotel like they’re at home,” Bönan explains. “You want the best of both, hotel service and home comfort.” So … [Read more...]
