Das Park Hotel!

Have you ever seen those huge, concrete drain pipes and thought "Hey, those would make great hotel rooms!"? No? Well, Andreas Strauss did and he created a "hotel" with them. There are 2 Das Hotel locations; one in Austria and one in Germany. The rooms are incredibly minimal with just a bed, lamp and a skylight. The hotel is also unique in that the cost of a room is "what you want to pay". A different idea indeed.

White On!!!

I have always loved white rooms and white furniture but I am not brave enough to actually have an all white (or mostly white) room or sofa, for that matter. But I do love all the white. It's so bright, so clean and everything goes with it!

Daddy Long Legs Hotel in Cape Town!!

My friend, Kerri, told me about the Daddy Long Legs Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa. It's small (only 13 rooms) and every room is completely different. Owners of the hotel gave various artists complete creative freedom to paint, fill, create the spaces however they wanted to. The result is an eclectic mix of rooms that you will not find in any other hotel. Book a room if you are ever Cape Town bound!

Amazing Bathtub!!

I am not really sure it can be called a bathtub because it's unlike any tub I have EVER seen. I came across this bath area via Pinterest (and they found it via The Messes of Men who got it from French By Design who thanks Architectural Digest, WHEW!) and I just had to know what it was made of. Apparently, it's a giant piece of granite hollowed out and sculpted to be a tub. Not the least expensive tub around but what an exciting, unique and beautiful design.

 The unsightly plumbing pipes are hidden in the wooden box! Clever.

"Casa en el Bosque" in Mexico!

This gorgeous house (in Valle de Bravo, Mexico) came across my path via Inhabitat today. "Casa en el Bosque" (designed by Parque Humano Architects) means "House in the Forest" and has some extremely beautiful surroundings complete with mountain views. The house was constructed using locally sourced and sustainable materials and was designed with the surrounding nature in mind. The inside of the home actually has cutouts in the ceiling with pine trees growing through them!!

 Oh my goodness, the view is incredible!

 LOVE the ceiling!
