When I was growing I was telling my peers I won't live in a normal home but in a hotel!       Since I sort of designed my life like a “new Nomad”. From one city to another every year in tiny apartments that I designed like Hotel suites. I was inspired to create a business that would bridge real estate and hospitality. I created the

If you need to seal a date or are facing a gut-taking engagement proposal with a difficult princess, this is the place to go. The honeymoon suite will crack her down, or win her over, however you want to see it. No one can resist this view! It’s a bit of a fairytale place, with little corners, gorgeous views, the idyllic Greek life. It’s on a

When I first slept at the Omm Hotel Barcelona, I fell in love with the rooftop pool! There were just a few other guests and myself and the idea of a rooftop bar was not so hip yet, so we could enjoy the peace. Omm is pretty big, but it also has everything. I love the water walk at the spa, and the

This is a swim club turned Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. Not an easy job!  At first, you feel the disproportion of everything and it can make you feel lost, at least for someone like me that loves small and cozy places. It took me quite a while to get adjusted to the space and air of the desert so I was close

It is what it says — a magic mansion! I think Italians can be pretty tacky when it comes to creating their own boutique hotels but this takes it way beyond. About an hour and a half drive from Napoli Airport through busy streets and curvy roads,  you finally arrive at Villa Magia Positano (this old mansion) located on the East side of

Cortina Hotel Munich was my home throughout the fall of 2016, truly! The Cortina Hotel Munich feels like home. Super understated reception, very spacious suites tastefully decorated so that it feels like more like a pied-a-terre apartment than a hotel room. Some have small kitchens, German-style — like, you get all of the kitchen appliances somehow in a vertical system. From the small

This is definitely not the latest of the boutique hotels but it is actually one of the first designed by a classmate of mine in Paris. There’s nothing special about this hotel but the location is unbeatable. Right in the heart of Saint Germain Latin Quarter and a step to Cafe de Flore.

Norrmalmstorg 2-4, Stockholm, Sweeden   +46 8 614 10 00 The Nobis Hotel is a bit too big of a hotel for my taste and design scale, but the Swedish have an innate sense of understatement that I admire. And, while the long hallways might feel endless, the hotel has a very personal and homey feeling nonetheless and an exceptional location in Ostermalm. And,

SoHo House Berlin Torstraße 1, Berlin +49 30 4050440 Despite its massive proportions (it used to be Hitler’s phone company headquarters…) Berlin is my favorite of Soho Houses. Once I got upgraded to a suite that ended up being easy twice the size of any of the MySuites apartments I had designed in NYC. The design and the feel of the space is great, and that’s not

It’s a lovely bungalow-hotel, literally on the beach. Most of the hotels in Tulum are on the beach but this one make you experience the sand from your very first step out the door in the morning! The most beautiful experience I had there was waiting through a night of thunderstorms from beneath the bungalow, waiting for the sunny day to break in
