Travel & Design

I still get all giddy when I get to stay in a hotel... Is there anything better than snuggling up under a ton of fresh sheets, ordering room service, scrutinizing the toiletries and not making the bed in the morning? I love it. 

I travel a bit for work and I travel as much as my bank account can afford. I've stayed in a myriad of hotels- some bad, some good, and some really bad. One time, I let a friend make arrangements for a hotel in Florida. It was a complete dump. The hotel owner proudly told us that every room was furnished with items from local garage sales... yeah, we got attacked by bed bugs on that trip. I've also stayed at GREAT places like the Ritz Carlton in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. THAT was insane. I swiped the toiletries, seeing that they were nicer than the things I had back home! 

Beyond the toiletries, sometimes, I want to take a piece of the hotel home with me. Whether it is a lamp on the bedside table, the mirror in the vanity or a design element in the bar. I've traveled the internets to find some amazing design elements in some of the most beautiful hotels in the world. Enjoy the trip :)  

I stayed in the Barbie Suite on a work trip one time. The Suite is even pinker and girlier than these pictures could ever portray. It's truly fantastic!
