6 Hotels That Are Nailing Good Design
In an interview with the globetrotting travel app Spot, a former J.Crew art director shares the places that are inspiring her now.
Leave it to a former J.Crew art director to know a good thing when she sees it. New York-based graphic designer Dulci Edge recently moved to San Francisco to launch the Far and Near, an unsurprisingly easy-on-the-eyes blog that chronicles her journeys from Corsica to California and every Instagram-worthy locale in between. So when the crowd-sourcing travel app Spot asked her to share the details on her favorite design-minded places to stay, Lonny's ears immediately perked up. “I’m a sucker for good design and guilty of picking hotels, restaurants, and shops based purely on branding,” she says. “My suitcase is always full of matchbooks, business cards, coasters, and stolen menus. If it were possible, I’d check into the Grand Budapest Hotel for life.”
We can relate. But seriously, the woman's got taste. On her list: the understated Berber-inspired rooms at Kasbah Bab Ourika, nestled in Morocco's Atlas Mountains; the European-styled interiors and 19th-century townhouses at Zero George in Charleston, South Carolina; and the rolling vineyards of Argentina's Cavas Wine Lodge. “I’m a big believer in the motto 'Always Go,' so it’s resulted in a pretty wild few months,” says Edge.
