COLONIAL MEETS INDUSTRIAL MODERN

One of the many things Mexico City is known for is for its modern and innovative architecture. But this colonial revival stunner is also a sight to be seen. Located in ‘El Zocalo’ right in the city center, the beautiful Downtown Mexico Hotel merges the magnificent Mexican colonial style with a contemporary and industrial vibe. The new, modern identity and character of the boutique hotel was conceived and designed by Cherem Serrano Arquitectos. I'm amazed how brilliantly they incorporated such a basic material as Mexican red bricks to create sculptural dividers in the guest rooms and also as protagonist in other areas of the hotel. I love the whole juxtaposition of the old and new!

A GUESTHOUSE WITH A TWIST

One this is to stay in a bed & breakfast filled with a unique collection of mid-century modern treasures, but then be able to buy them is something else. Bea Mombaers had the rather unique idea to transform an old Belgian farmhouse into a fabulous B&B where her guests can shop their way through their stay. I know I would walk away with a couple of pieces from her collection.

WARM MINIMALISM

This might not look like your typical hotel room, but rather like a fabulouusly designed set of a futuristic movie. But these minimalist interiors are in fact part of the new OKKO Nantes Château designed by Parisian designer Patrick Norguet. The four-star hotel in West France promises a very unique lodging experience to its guests and one to be remembered for the stylishly warm and minimalist rooms where white is king.

A MODEL CITIZEN

A new breed of design hotels, CitizenM hotels are taking major cities by storm. They've recently conquered the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands by opening their latest venue. The new 151-room citizenM hotel features the chain's trademark modern design that attracts so many trendy travelers in search of affordable luxury. Designed by Concrete Architectural Associates, the hotel's eclectic style incorporates a wonderful collection of accessories and artifacts that make direct reference to the city's rich maritime history. By the way, a few months back I found out they're going to be opening a CitizenM here in New York City, so I'm counting the days for its doors to open so I can stop by and take a peek at what they come up this time. Stay tuned! Happy weekend!

A CHÂTEAU LIKE NO OTHER

I've always dreamt of spending the night in a French Château, but after seeing this stunner I definitely have to make this dream come true sooner. Not your typical French country side estate, The Châteaux de la Resle has been splendidly renovated and decorated to meet the 21st century. With two guest rooms and four luxurious and spacious suites, this country retreat is a beautiful fusion between the past and the present. The exquisite blend of antiques with modern and contemporary decor generates an interesting juxtapositon of styles that gives the hotel an exclusive and sleek look.

TELLING A STORY THROUGH ART

How would you like start your week by taking a short trip to Mexico City? The trek might be worth just to visit the charming restaurant Malamén. Located in the trendy neighborhood of Polanco, the eatery was designed by Ricardo Casas Design Office with one of the most fun collection of memorabilia and wall art I've seen in a while. It's very interesting the way they created different visual stories in every single wall vignette which give the restaurant a homey and eclectic flair. It looks like a delightful place to grab a bite to eat.
