Today’s post explores the depth and beauty of moss green…rich with complex layers of yellow, brown and gray, it is a versatile neutral that compliments almost any other hue…may you be inspired by one of my favorite colors…

After yesterday’s post, I spent some time researching the brilliant work of Italian architect Michele Bonan…in looking through his gallery of hotel design, I noticed he designed the Heidelberg Suites, recently featured in this months Elle Decor…how wonderful! I immediately recognized the spa photo from the pages of Elle Decor, an image that I had gravitated to, exploring its every detail…I didn’t put 2 & 2 together until yesterday!

I’m so pleased to share with you photos of this one of a kind boutique hotel…comprised of three separate dwellings (two 19th-century villas and a new building in a similar style) the suites are thoughtfully decorated with Italian inspired sculpture and silhouettes of German poets…with an outlook over the Neckar River and situated next to the “Old Bridge”, every room is provided with a magnificent view of the castle and the “Old Town”…please enjoy this journey to the Heidelberg Suites!

With an urban palette of black, white and a splash of animal print, J.K. Place in Florence feels more like a stylish home than an exclusive luxury hotel…these gorgeous photos, by Patrick Cline for Lonny Magazine, highlight owner Ori Kafri’s unique vision and Italian architect Michele Bonan‘s stunning creation…with only 20 rooms, J.K. Place offers their guests an intimate, one of a kind experience…there are so many artful moments to soak in, I would be hard-pressed to leave the hotel for the beauty of Florence!

How about a glass of champagne in one of those wing chairs by the fire! So fabulous!
