We have been crushing on Paris-based interior design firm Festen Architecture for several years, because designers Charlotte de Tonnac and Hugo Sauzay create magic with their spaces. Unpretentious, creative, raw and honest. They really speak to me so I thought I’d share a smattering of some of their latest works. (Photos: François Coquerel, Benoit Linero)

The Emerald is an Art Nouveau house in the centre of Prague consisting of 13 flats designed in 5 different styles, that are available for short term rentals. The old world feel in these spaces is absolutely magical, and the textured walls are like works of art. How I would love to visit Prague and stay in such a beautiful environment. (Thank you again Bára!)
With a predicted mid-winter temperature this weekend of a beautiful 22° Celcius you could be forgiven that 28 Degrees Byron Bay is named for the balmy days year round. It’s actually the degrees latitude south of the equator for this coastal hotspot on the northern coastline of New South Wales. It’s time for a virtual getaway in a perfect oasis in a perfect part of the world. Don’t pack too much. It’s casual yet of so stylish resort town. Just don’t forget your swimmers.
Located in the centre of Mahon in Menorca, Casa Telmo is a beautiful boutique hotel with only 5 rooms and therein lies my problem. I just cannot choose which room I would want to stay in. Oh hang on a minute. That’s not a problem. I’ll just make sure I stay at least 5 days, one in each one. Hotel Casa Telmo designed by Quintana Partners.
I know it’s only Tuesday. The week has just begun but I have a hankering to get away, to pack my suitcases and check into a luxury hotel awash with as much nostalgia as design cred. Muted greens, browns and golden hues, mid century vibes, warm wood mixed with rattan (it’s even on the hallway ceiling) and a sense of good times, good living and simple elegance. I’m checking into Copenhagen’s Hotel Sanders by London-based design duo Lind + Almond. I’ll meet you in the bar.
