Hotel Indulgences: The Ganesvoort NY

image

So I have been meaning to blog about The Gansevoort Hotel in New York ever since watching The Kardashians take NYC. I remember drooling over the ginormous houndstooth chairs and the mix of patterns, textures and the glamorous look of it all. It is the type of design I crave when staying in a new city. They have two locations in New York and here are my favorite rooms. This aerial view and that velvet sofa is my computer’s wallpaper now…

Remember this was the suite Kim K stayed in during the Humphries era while filming Kim & Kourt take New York…

Love all the steel and industrial looks of this sports bar…

If you are scared to add too much color, simply use it in one furniture piece or small decor items for a pop..

The magenta hued drapery really inspires me to add something heavy and regal and jeweled-toned for the cooler months in my own home…

image

This lobby counter is pretty bad ass. I do wonder if they are over the chevron floor that was all the rage a couple years ago. It’s a risky move taking something so trendy for a commercial space. Then again, it could have been designed before chevrons became so popular.

What a view! I can imagine sipping cocktails at night here…

image

The illuminated art backdrops is a great eye-catching design concept. You can get the look in your own home with bookshelves and other things as well…

I’ve been to New York a couple times (Manhattan specifically and you can read all about the Xmas trip here). Next time I go, I need to experience a rooftop bar…

Ahhh this Moroccan influenced ocean view vacay home…

image

…Is quite amazing. There is a tower and rooftop area to enjoy a firepit and panoramic views, several open air concept areas and patios to enjoy the weather. I really like the arched details through out the home. It’s yours to rent for $1,300 a night.

Girly and industrial all at the same time…

How I long to have an exposed brick wall…

A loft with black steel windowsills….

I like this sofa for you can sit in two directions and carry conversations with people on opposite sides of the room. It’s a great piece for one who entertains….

I’m going to Arizona and obsessed with their architecture…

image

It will be my first time in Arizona and a girls trip and I’m excited to hang by a pool in hot temps with magazines galore, a cocktail, and beautiful picturesque scenery. We don’t have cacti or palm trees here in Milwaukee so know that I will take tons of instagram pictures. (It isn’t my first time seeing palms though).

What an incredibly designed contemporary courtyard area…

Uplights at night will really make a home and its landscaping stand out…

Tiny Tot Thursday 3.27.14 a space a child can grow in

image

This playroom designed by Nina Farmer is ideal because the bones of the room can easily transition for a more grown up feel when the child becomes a teen or college student. Books can eventually replace toys in the built-ins.

Monday Morning Inspiration 3.24.14 if you let people break your spirit…

I had a completely different route I was going to take for today’s quotes until Mr. Monday Nights (actor/model Harold House Moore from vh1’s Single Ladies) posted this on his instagram this morning. It needed to be reposted. Hope this and the latter quotes gives you the needed motivation to continue your dreams.

I incorporated some pretty curb appeal with the added thought of, when one door closes…..another will open.
