The Rolling Hotel

I’m having a major Wes Anderson-meets-Motorcycle Diaries daydream right now due to discovering “Das Rollende Hotel”– “the rolling hotel” concept by Rotel.

Their converted buses have little sleeping cabins like trains, freeing you from having to stay within a day’s drive of a hotel while you travel and letting you traverse destinations all over the world way off the beaten path. Meals are eaten at local eateries or cooked bus-side after finding ingredients at the market.

This has officially been added to my list of trips I need to take at some point in life. The destinations they offer are amazing!















le programme de ma semaine

I love this planner. Small enough to fit in your purse, just two basic boxes per day– an am and a pm (does it bug anyone else when there are lines for each and every hour of the day? It just makes me feel bad about myself that I don’t have something to write onto every single hour, and my to-dos tend to fit more free-form into my day anyway, so then I don’t know where to write them.), and plenty of room on the reverse of the previous page to jot other notes (another common planner downfall– when there’s no spare room to write notes besides the boxes for each day).

And the spiral-binding allows it to lay flat! One of my must-have features for a planner. I hate when they won’t lay flat on your desk.

And, it’s cute.

American Fashion Designers at Home

Can’t wait to see this one!  The homes of 115 CFDA members, including Kate Spade, Donna Karan, Elie Tahari, Oscar de la Renta, and on and on.  Isn’t it fascinating to see how someone’s fashion sense translates into interior tastes?

Best Made Co >> Block-Printed Maps

I really want to like Best Made Co’s Axes.  They’ve been getting a LOT of attention in the designy-man-world, and I do really like their aesthetic, and I know on an instinctual level that they’re “cool,” but I just can’t quite get into the idea of a pretty axe, as I’m pretty sure anyone who cares about their axe being pretty isn’t using an axe.  Right?  Like what outdoorsman is like, “wow I just love the color palette of the painted stripes on this axe”?
Still, I do like the looks of them, even though I can’t justify their existence or purchase.  And I do like these maps block-printed with their logo.  Again, they don’t quite make logical sense, but I am drawn to the aesthetic.  Well, I like maps, and I like x’s (seriously, also equal-armed t’s), so it wasn’t a hard sell. 
And it makes slightly more sense to me to buy a cool-looking thang to hang on your wall than to buy a cool-looking axe, purportedly a functional object, that you’ll obviously never use.
Best Made Co maps here (of course sold at Partners & Spade).
