CONTEMPORARY PASSION

Behind the facades of four old town houses in the old part of Ljubljana city, Slovenia, lies the modern interiors of the Vander Urbani Resort. The hotel's design, by architects Sadar and Vuga, is based on a kaleidoscopic play of 3D patterns in different materials and reflections. All 16 rooms and suites are designed in soothing colors, soft lines, exquisite materials and custom-designed furniture pieces, creating an intimate atmosphere and a unique living environment for the stylish traveler. One of my favorite features is the mirror-encased bed in one of the suites and the unexpected play of textures and patterns that create a luxurious yet welcoming place to stay.

KIDDING AROUND

A few weeks back a received a very delightful phone call from one of my dearest nieces (and avid reader of TheDesignerPad) to let me know she's was expecting. Believe me, I was thrilled beyond belief to hear the great news. Ever since, she's been begging me to dedicate one of my posts to kids rooms so she could draw some inspiration for the baby's nursery. Since she doesn't want to know the sex of the baby, it might be harder for her to decide on a concept, color palette and look. But I know these fun and beautiful rooms I found in Scandinavian Deko magazine will give her some sweet ideas to start decorating her little one's nest. I know it has taken me a while Keke, but I finally got around to doing it. Enjoy and happy baby decorating! xo

MODEZ-TY APPART

Every so often, I'm delighted to come across original hotels where the design concept is for every space to look completely different from each other. Recently opened, the Modez Hotel in Arnhem, The Netherlands offers its guests a unique experience through its eclectic look. Located in the middle of the city's Fashion District, thirty plus Dutch fashion designers were invited to design all twenty rooms of the hotel, each bringing a surprising concept that characterizes their personal styles. Although they're all wonderful, I happen to love the guestroom designed by Caroline Evers with her fun and quirky use of knits throughout the guestroom—including lamps, curtain, decorations and even chairs fully covered with knitting. Wouldn't it be interesting to have the chance to sleep in all twenty rooms and be pampered with so many different styles?

FEELING BLUE

I'm not really feeling blue, but blue was the main color I chose when I started staging this apartment a couple of months age. It's important to narrow a color palette before starting any decorating project, whether it's renovating, staging or simply sprucing up a room. The challenge here was to make a few square feet look larger and welcoming within a tight budget. In this case, the living area was right next to the kitchen, so I needed to create a separation of both spaces. By painting the wall behind the couch but leaving a white border, I was able to create a visual separation for the living room—a trick that I often use and works wonders. I was lucky this place had somewhat high ceilings, which helped make the rooms appear larger. So I decided to take advantage of this and add some drama to the bedroom by using a tall tufted headboard. Since I couldn't find one tall enough, I created one by framing wallpaper with a tufted print to achieve the same look. It really came out great. Remember, keeping it simple and telling a visual story are two rules to keep in mind when working with smaller spaces.

A MEMORABLE STAY

The moment we got off the taxi and saw the spectacular 19th-century façade of the Nobis Hotel in Stockholm, we knew we were in for a treat. We were welcomed by a enchanting and exotic aroma that permeated the hotel and made that first impression memorable. The lobby displays a stunning collage of different-sized spherical pendants that makes quite a statement—one more gorgeous than the other. The über chic interiors of the Nobis were conceived by Swedish design studio Claesson Koivisto Rune. The design is not loud, flamboyant or self-righteous, but toned-down and discreet, which makes its interiors tranquil and extremely welcoming. The atmosphere in the rooms is calm, relaxed and sophisticated, with a demure decor, a mellow color palette and an exquisite attention to details. Our room was dreamy and wonderfully comfortable with a beautifully view overlooking a popular square in Stockholm. The Nobis is not all about looks and charm. The unparalled service by its friendly staff is also noteworthy. By far, this is one of the coolest hotels I've ever stayed at.

UNDER THE CAPRI SUN

This charming, yet stunning boutique hotel is the perfect setting for a dreamy getaway. Part of the St. Micheles’ convent built in the XVII century, Capri Suite is a two-room inn located in the heart of the ancient village of Anacapri in the Italian paradise island of Capri. ZETASTUDIO Architects made some incredible design calls when putting together every single space in this lodge. A fresh and breezy color palette of blue and yellow pulls the whole seaside theme together deliciously. What about those modern and groovy furnishings in that old setting? It's over-the-moon fantastic. Capri is sounding really good right now!
