This is the 24th year the famous Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärv, Sweden. As always, the art and sculpture which creates these one of a kind say rooms are amazing. Just be sure to bring a friend to keep warm with!
W Hotel’s 45th Hotel has recently opened in Verbier, Switzerland, I think it’s red hot! The Alpine feel with the natural wood and stone is contrasted beautifully with shots of bright red in glass, upholstery, and other accents. Other small details, such as the Swiss cross embedded into various millwork add to the national theme.
Iceland. Sparse, beautiful, and cold. This abandoned building has been transformed into an eerie (in a good way) hotel which focuses on its simple, natural setting.
Focus is definitely on the view
Icelandic quirk comes out in the legs appearing in the mirrored island in the restaurant.

Why I love this room? I think it actually does feel rather residential. Often hotels claim to want to portray this look, but it hardly ever translates. I feel this room is warm and inviting. The artwork isn’t typical or placed predictably centered above the bed. The mix of lighting and accessories is great, and who doesn’t love an upholstered banquette? So versatile…you can eat there, read, watch tv, use your ipad. Totally makes sense. And honestly I’m glad to see a swing back to fully enclosed bathrooms without glass walls. Really, we don’t need to see what is going on it there do we?
The new Astropuff 3899 pendant light from Fire Farm Lighting looks pretty interesting. Using new LED technology, the ever changing light is light weight, has low power consumption, and are easily grouped. But I just think they look pretty crazy and interesting and something you’d find in a super hero movie!
