Hotel Interiors: The London Hotel in NYC and West Hollywood

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

It’s becoming that time of year when I get the urge to head to NYC.  I love the fall in the city and all that NYC has to offer from now into the Christmas/New Years holiday. There’s nothing like walking the streets of Manhattan in the crisp, cool fall weather. Since I’m thinking about when I can make this trek to visit the Big Apple, I’ve come across a hotel that has a wonderful interior and a great location. Located in Midtown Manhattan, this stylish hotel is in the heart of the city which is perfect for exploring. Let’s look at the amazing interiors of The London Hotel in NYC.

Even the lobby is breathtaking.  This hotel also boasts a few Gordon Ramsey restaurants! Check out their website for more information on The London Hotel.  Maybe NYC is not on your list for the fall, but California is.  You’re in luck because there is a London Hotel located in West Hollywood.

If you’re in either city and have the chance to stay at The London Hotel, let me know what you think! I would pick the hotel as my destination based on the beautiful interiors alone. Let’s face it, vacation is more enjoyable with exquisite surroundings!

Home Tour: SJP’s NYC Townhouse

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Sarah Jessica Parker’s NYC townhouse in Greenwich Village was recently listed for sale.  I was very interested to see the interior of SJP’s home since she’s such a style icon.  The funny thing is, I LOVE how it is decorated and thought that it would be a little more over-the-top with glitz and glamour (don’t get me wrong I love me some glam), but it was nice to see this home decor very family-friendly and simple.  Take the tour and let me know if it’s what you imagined!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Happy Monday!  Cooler temps will be here before we know it, and it will be time to start pulling out fall clothing items.  Here’s a look I’ve been wanting to add to my closet for this upcoming season, and where you can find similar items!   I love the color burgundy right now and think that it will complement all the black and white that I already have in my closet!

I love the classic Spanish style home, especially if it has all the charm and character of one from the 1920′s.  The exterior of a this type of home is one of my favorites, but the original Spanish style interiors are often dark with lots of wood and iron.  I actually love it when a home has a traditional exterior, but the inside is modern and unexpected.  This home’s facade has the look that I love (all the age and character that anyone could ask for), but the interior is also a delight!  To my surprise, the dark wood and traditional Spanish style decor is no where to be found–just a bright, clean and modern home that makes me want to move right in!  In fact, this Beverly Hills, CA home is for sale–check out the home details plus more pictures, here!
