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!

ROOM TO INSPIRE

There isn't a better place to find great inspiration for bedroom decor than beautifully designed boutique hotels. This recently opened gem in the center of Oslo, Norway, has plenty of eye candy to stimulate your senses. The interiors of the Hotel Grand Central are divinely designed by architects Lars Helling and Ajas Mellbye with murals by artist Ariel McMillion. The rooms in particular are brilliant. They're all spacious with lofty ceilings and decorated with lots of wit, style and a little rock-'n'-roll attitude. The designers conceived different themes for the guest rooms. Although they all enjoy that Scandinavian flair, each rooms has its own personality—some are whimsical and eclectic where others are more minimal and monochromatic. So take your pick. Which one better fits your style? I'm having a hard time choosing since all of them have plenty to love.

AEGEAN CHIC

Please, come in and let's take a peek at this fabulous hotel suite in Mykono's Andronikos Hotel. Designed by KLab Architecture, the Cocoon rooms (perfectly named) are characterized by fluid forms and natural curves often seen in the local architecture. The concept was to create a sexy and relaxing space to calm the mind and spirit of their fortunate guests. The integration of organic elements like the pebbles on the floor and bamboo accents were cleverly mixed with the clean and minimalist look of the suites. I bet staying in one these Cocoons will feel like resting on a soft white cloud above the Aegean Sea.

THROUGH THE LENSE OF: MENNO ADEN

Haven't we all wished to be a fly on the wall, at one time or another? For sure, I have. Now thanks to German photographer Menno Adden, we can enjoy that perspective through his imaginative and über cool Room Portraits. By installing his camera on the ceiling of various rooms, he's been able to capture rather voyeuristic views of different Berlin interiors and flattening them into two-dimensional scale models. His unusual vignettes are not your typical room shots, but they give us a different vantage point that we normally wouldn't have. I have to say they're quite amusing.

A SOULFUL STAY

Somewhere between soul and Art Noveau, the stunning Hotel Wiesler enjoys a privileged location in the dynamic center of the charming city Graz, Austria. The hotel consists of five former guesthouses converted into what the Wiesler is today. But between 1945 and 1954 the building was used a accommodation for British Army officers until it got renovated again into its original splendor in 1986. The successful combination of beautiful vintage fixtures and modern design symbolises the philosophy behind the new Wiesler—a surprising and exquisite choice of detail which makes this hotel so special. All 21 refurbished room offer plenty of space for new thoughts and an unforgettable stay.
