Located at Toronto’s International airport, Hotel ALT is one of Canada’s chic hotels. Egyptian cotton sheets, goose down duvet covers, a spa-style shower with glass walls, and an iHome alarm clock are just a few of the pampering accessories offered for the lucky traveler to enjoy.
This is all good and well, however today I would like to focus on the unique wall mural, or should I say collective work of art, decorating this stylish hotel lobby. Oh, how I would love to have a wall like that in my living room… Continue reading

As our technology advances, we see the same idea in our smart machines and devices as the competition between manufacturers continues to heat up for who has the fastest, lightest, and smallest product on the market.

I presume that whether one is a fan of travel trailers or not, the Custom Line of these super modern motor homes from Ketterer will at least draw attention and rise interest in exploring how far modern technology has reached.
From the exterior to the interior, these motorhomes have little or perhaps nothing to be jealous off next to the finest design hotels of the world’s most beloved cities. Additionally, one may take his/her private and custom designed “mini hotel“ with them, while traveling the continents, country after country, settling in their favorite spots when they wish, however they wish. It looks as if a breath of fresh air and enormous capacity has been blown in the once adored VW van, around the times of the hippies. Continue reading

A unique ecological concept designed to be in total harmony with the surrounding environment, it couldn’t have been situated in a more idyllic location: above the picturesque village of Les Cerniers, with a fantastic view over the Lake Geneva.

Nowadays, it seems there are more and more luxury treehouse hotels popping up across the globe.
