It took 3 long years to convert this former watermill in Alsace, France built in 1565 into the beautiful hotel villa it is today. The mill is registered as historic and therefore took extra care, but the resulting guest house with 5 unique rooms and spa that contains a hammam and a whirlpool are absolutely stunning and I love how unique each space is. Bits of history showing through in the architecture along with the amenities and comfort of more modern furnishings – the amalgamation makes for a perfect getaway.

Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Kiln at Ace Hotel Sydney by Fiona Lynch.

Finca fabulous

Posted on Thu, 1 Dec 2022 by midcenturyjo

Is it the weekend yet? Please? I think I’ll spend today daydreaming that I’m holidaying at this spectacularly renovated 300-year-old finca with nine luxurious bedroom suites, a saltwater swimming pool, dedicated wellness area and a sound-proofed party cave. Yes a sound-proofed party cave. For me it’s just a dream but maybe you can go. Finca La Inika available for rent via Domus Nova.

Hotel La Bionda

Posted on Wed, 16 Nov 2022 by KiM

Exclusive eight-room hotel in an 18th century building in Begur, a complete project in which the studio has been in charge of the concept, branding and image as well as the whole restoration and decoration. The traditional Catalan house required a thorough structural reform to be later updated with traditional techniques and materials Quintana Partners also incorporated the latest technology to reuse energy and water resources to achieve energy sufficiency The starting point of the decoration are inspiring women from the early twentieth century, whose personality has been reflected in each room, such as Charlotte Cooper, English tennis player, the first woman to win the Olympic Games, Emilie Flöge, muse of the painter Gustav Klint, textile designer, or the dancer Carmen Amaya, a devotee of Begur.
Absolutely beautiful. What a dream to be able to spend a few nights here.

Hotel Saint Vincent

Posted on Thu, 15 Sep 2022 by KiM

A building with an illustrious past, the Hotel Saint Vincent‘s story begins 160 ago when it was opened as the Saint Vincent’s Infant Asylum by the heroic Margaret Houghery. Unveiled in the summer of 2021, in New Orleans’ Lower Garden District, the careful restoration of this 1861 building honors its stately history while layering on a new sense of modernity. The interior spaces are a marriage of original 19th century detailing with mid-20th century Italian design elements. Including 75 guestrooms and suites, guests and members can enjoy drinks by the newly refurbished pool or the dark and moody Chapel Club. Our San Lorenzo restaurant serves coastal Italian fare to locals and guests as well as the Paradise bar where all are welcome. The Elizabeth Street cafe offers breakfast pastries, coffee and Vietnamese fare throughout the day.
