This holiday season I went up to Portland to see my family and friends in good old "puddletown", Oregon. I moved to California when I was six but would go back to Portland every summer and stay with my Grandparents in Lake Oswego, so the place still feels like home. This trip my sister and I had an idea to make a Christmas Show with all the little cousins...this is was our attempt at show practice. Technology was way more fascinating I suppose. Combine that with the 45 sugar cookies ingested, this is what you get:

Picturesque Christmas Setting.
I have been on the move these past couple of months. Life has been full of changes and new experiences that are continuing to open my mind. The more I see the more I understand how much I do not know. That both excites and overwhelms me and I love it.
A couple of months ago my mother and I had the opportunity to be shown Vail, Colorado by the architect that was a huge part of the creation of the place. This experience was unforgettable seeing the structures and details from the eyes of the man who created it. Here are a few of my favorites from the trip.

So I am currently planning a little trip over the pond with my sister in the new year and doing hotel research. Of the many many beautiful boutique hotels I have come across, Blakes is at the top of my list FOR SURE.
Anouska Hempel did the design and it is fantastic. Her use of color, texture and scale taps into the fantasy of design and feels like it has the ability to transport you to an old world mentality of design where everything was highly detailed and highly decorated. She has the right amount of "matchy matchy" I can appreciate. I NEED to experience this in person.
Our last trip to London we were lucky enough to stay at the exquisite Lanesborough Hotel where we had a personal butler and proceeded to mingle with the glitterati at The Library Bar which included late night drinks with Courtney Love, Noel Fielding (from the Mighty Boosh) and Drew McConnel from the Baby Shambles. That story deserves it's own post as Courtney spilled strange and personal information to us while the scotch on the rocks kept flowing...
Anyways, I am totally spoiled, but this go-around I still want to find a little taste of that sharp English design... Blakes might be a little more manageable. :)
