Tipis seem to have been on the spotlight since some time now, have you also noticed? I do love them so for they bring playfulness and a feeling of relaxation and return to carefree childhood times whether placed inside or outside. The Mikasi tipi, by designers Sascha Akkermann and Flo Florian is a fabulous example. Continue reading
In Harads, Sweden there’s a very special hotel for nature lovers: Treehotel. An exquisite hotel experience is carefully spread between the forests in order to capture a frozen moment in time… Contemporary architecture was specially conceived to keep nature intact for a minimal environmental impact. A unique conceptual approach lead to a set of alternative solutions for the conventional hotel room: Scandinavia’s leading architects were invited to create five unique treerooms: the Cabin, the Mirrorcube, the Bird’s Nest, the Blue Cone and finally the UFO.

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

I am a fan of little things in life; kittens, babies, donut holes, iPhone 5, etc. Usually my motto is ‘the smaller the better’. 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. With that said, I have to draw the line when it comes to a car that weighs less than yours truly. Continue reading
Have you ever been to Amsterdam? Are you planning to visit any time soon? Then Hotel Droog, located in the historical city center of a -17th century building, should better be on your list!

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.

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
