A HOTEL WITH A COLOR STORY

If you're a color lover then I have the perfect dose of color for you today. At the The William Hotel in New York guests are welcomed to a feast of vibrant colors from the moment they walk in through the doors. From floor to ceiling, each floor of this hip hotel is designed in a different glowing monochromatic palettes of blue, teal, pink and yellow. Grey tweed furniture together with neutral accents serve as the perfect balance to such a intense burst of hues. It's a magnificently well told color story. Which is your favorite room?

SLEEPING IN THE PAST

The opportunity of staying in a Middle Age monastery doesn't come along very often, especially in one that has been gorgeously transformed into a luxurious hotel. "What we wanted for Fontevraud was not the classic hotel and restaurant experience, but something unique; a journey between tradition and modernity that reinterprets the story of Saint-Lazare for the future, marrying emotion, sensual pleasure and poetry," explained designers Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku of Agence Jouin Manku who steer headed the stunning renovation. With a simple palette of wood, metal and fabrics the creative duo created a serene atmosphere that complements and brings forth the history of the building. Simply put, this hotel is a heavenly place to kick back and relax.

DANISH HOSPITALITY

It's no secret that Danes have an exquisite taste in design, and that their hotels are no exception to this rule. The recently opened Hotel SP34 is one of the newest additions to the impressive line up of design hotels in Copenhagen. The hotel, formerly known as Hotel Fox, was completely revamped by architect/designer Morten Hedegaard into a chic 118-room boutique hotel. Designed with the staple Nordic aesthetic, the hotel is decorated in a soothing grey and white palette with deliciously warm details in wood and leather. No doubt Hotel SP34 should be on the top of anyone's list traveling to the Danish capital any time soon.

MODERN LUXURY FOR RENT IN BERLIN

If you happen to be traveling to Berlin this Summer I might have the most stylish places for you to stay at. Suite 030 offers exclusive one of a kind rentals in the German capital. In this modern beauty you can enjoy a spacious living room and the three bedrooms furnished with hand-picked statement pieces of furniture. But no worries, if this one is not your cup of tea there are plenty more to choose from, all decorated to a tee. From an urban tree house to a super cool boat house, Suite 030 has plenty of chic places all around Berlin. In most cases these pads make more sense for groups of friends traveling together in order to make your budget go further. Happy first day of Summer!

SILVER LININGS

This concrete-centric hotel is a new hospitality haven in Los Angleles' Koreantown. Designer Sean Knibb of Knibb Design is responsible for the stylish and modern look of The Line Hotel's minimalist yet striking interiors — where he introduced a variety of textures, patterns and colors to balance out the powering presence of concrete. I'm mildly obsessed with the overall vision of this gorgeous hotel.

WORTHY OF A CELEBRATION

To celebrate Cinco De Mayo I thought I would take you on a virtual getaway to Mexico City. And what better place to stay that at the chic and colorful Condesa DF Hotel  — located in the historic district of Condesa, hence the name. Its happy design, by interior designer India Mahdavi, merges the bohemian spirit of the neighborhood with a fresh and modern style. A vibrant turquoise blue it's quite the perfect color to set off the rich wooden and cowhide textures in the hotel's lobby and bar—where I think we would toast with a couple of margaritas to the occasion. Cheers!

ART NOUVEAU MEETS MODERN ELEGANCE

Celebrating the building's 100th anniversary, the Parisian jewel Hotel Vernet underwent a jaw-dropping restoration by interior designer François Champsaur. The results: a wonderful combination of Art Nouveau and modern elegance. Besides its stylish new interiors, the hotel houses a magnificent glass ceiling designed by none other that Gustave Eiffel himself—a rather good reason to pay the staple hotel a visit. Happy travels!

BUILT AROUND HISTORY AND CULTURE

Formerly a homeless shelter and a strip club, The Dean hotel is the new talk of the town in Providence, Rhode Island. Built around the history and culture of Providence, this charming 52-room boutique hotel is filled with custom furniture, craftwork from local purveyors and found objects from Europe and beyond. If you happen to be in the area, The Dean is a must place to stay in, specially if you're looking for a mellow yet friendly inn. But if you're just passing by, do stop to at least partake on some serious singing in The Boombox, Providence only karaoke lounge. Happy weekend!
