The Alsace Hotel

Posted on Wed, 27 Oct 2021 by midcenturyjo

Just the thought of travelling again has me finding the most amazing hotels everywhere (or is that my algorithm?). How about LA’s Hotel Alsace by Home Studios? Mediterranean riffs with natural materials. Think terracotta hues, handmade tiles, rattan and wood, vintage pieces mixed with contemporary furniture. It’s on the bucket list.

Borders are opening and people are starting to travel again. We’re not quite there in Australia yet but we are edging closer. In the meantime I’m daydreaming of a getaway to Poland so I can stay at the mid century meets modern, Soviet Brutalist design era meets Western luxury,  inter-war Polish modernism that is the PURO Hotel in Kraków by Paradowski Studio.

Château de la Bourlie

Posted on Sun, 5 Sep 2021 by KiM

This stunning 800 year old château is located in the heart of a lush valley in the Dordogne region of South West France has been in the same aristocratic French family since it was built. It can be rented in its entirety or by wing/room at certain times of the year. Château de la Bourlie is currently home to artist Cyril de Commarque and his family, and has been sympathetically renovated – a medieval kitchen was preserved whilst a contemporary kitchen created for the chef. The juxtaposition of old and new here is brilliant.

Sunday camping in Yosemite

Posted on Sun, 1 Aug 2021 by KiM

Near the Yosemite national park entrance is AutoCamp Yosemite, a really cool setup that includes a mid-century modern clubhouse, a general store, swimming pool, and accommodations that includes Airstreams, luxury tents, basecamps and cabins. This looks like it would be sooooooo much fun to spend a weekend here. Designed by Lauren Geremia.

Beldi Country Club

Posted on Thu, 8 Jul 2021 by KiM

I suspect these photos of the Beldi Country Club in Marrakech does not do its exquisite beauty justice. What I would give to visit in person. This has everything – a 42-suite hotel (each with private terrace), restaurant, spa, gardens, 4 gorgeous pools, its own souk. And all this 10 minutes from the city centre.
