a warm, minimal hotel in Germany

To say I cannot wait to go back to Europe would be a gross understatement. We haven’t been on a trip for a while, though we’ve talked at length about whether we should go to LA or wait a bit longer and take the kids to Europe instead but part of me is ready to just jump in the car and drive any place, any getaway sounds great right now. It certainly doesn’t help when I see places like this hotel in Münster, Germany.
Even though it’s in Germany, there’s quite a few Danish pieces that compose the interior including Gubi’s beetle chair and lounge tables, Bellevue lamp designed by Arne Jacobsen and Panton’s flowerpot pendant lamp.
The colors in the hotel are very inviting, ranging from muted pinks to brown to gold, the overall look is very elegant but also very comforting together.

La Granja, Ibiza

Apologies for my silence the last several days, I’ve just been enjoying some quiet time with the kids. We took them to the sand dunes yesterday and hiked up the mounds, the kids later sliding down on their bums. It was fun but exhausting work and everyone slept well last night!

This dark, moody, rustic hotel came across my path last night and I bookmarked it right before I succumbed to sleep. Ibiza’s La Granja, Spanish for The Farm, is a hotel created from what was once a private residence until German design studio Dreimeta converted it for Design Hotels.

Honoring the building’s Moorish and Iberian architecture, The Farmhouse has been designed to marry calmness and relaxation.

“The art of imperfect beauty is accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay. Using flawed and scarred materials and surfaces we’ve alluded to the enigma of time passing.”
— Armin Fischer, Dreimeta Design Studio
