And while all eyes will be on the Olympic Village, we’d like to suggest that they wander just a little to the stunning contemporary design and architecture that have long made Rio one South America’s most vibrant cultural cities. On September 6th, you can get an exclusive look at Rio’s most exceptional homes with the release of the book Inside Rio, but we’re

There’s no better way to embrace the great outdoors than to sleep there. But you’ve gotta contend with finding a campsite, schlepping your gear, cooking your chow. If you want nature with a side of creature comforts, we’d suggest sticking close to home, like really close to home. For today’s installment of our Summer Bucket List, we put together this guide to glamping in your own backyard! Video: See our glamping set-up come to life! Pitch a tent (or a teepee! Or a yurt!) The more comfortable the structure, the more you’ll use

One of the great wonders of NYC is that you can get pretty much anything you want at pretty much any hour: Need a vintage 1930s ballgown at 2 am? Easy! An Ethiopian feast delivered to your door? Sure! But the one thing that can be hard to come by is an outdoor space to call your own. So the folks at the W Hotel asked us to help them change that. We teamed up to transform the Extreme Wow Suite at New York’s W Hotel into an urban glamping adventure. Now through

This is the reality at OFF, the very first hotel and bar that permanently floats upon the waters of the Seine. Opened June 23, OFF isn’t just a place to sleep — it’s an experience. The eco-friendly, glass-walled space is lined with smooth wood paneling and metallic materials, offering 54 guest rooms as well as four luxury suites. A special playlist floats throughout the structure, creating a cinematic vibe.

We love all of those things, but we like them with a serious side of style. So we’ve rounded up our nine favorite design hotels around the world. Whether you’re looking for big style in the Big Easy or modernism in Morocco, these chic stays will inspire a serious case of wanderlust… or maybe even a home renovation.

From midcentury escapes tucked in the desert to Deco resorts with big city flair, there’s something intoxicating about hotels with history. In honor of summer travel season, we’re taking a virtual walk through the halls of some of the coolest retro getaways. Just keep your ears perked in case the walls decide to whisper any secrets of decadent days gone by.  Hotel Molitor Paris, Paris, France With its mustard yellow facade and white balustrades, Hotel Molitor’s pool looks like it lives anywhere but Paris. In 1929, Olympic gold medalist Johnny Weissmuller took the

Big cities tend to get all of the design cred. But this summer, we’re taking the path less traveled and singing the praises of small towns across America. From the nouveau nautical style of the Pacific Northwest to the hippie mystique of California, the bayou boutiques of Louisiana to the arty prepsters of Massachusetts, there’s a world of inspiration on the backroads and byways of the US-of-A. So next time you put in that PTO request, consider trading in the crowded metropolis for a quieter, quainter experience. Because these 12 towns are

It’s finally happening!  Summer is coming. As we bid a gleeful farewell to parkas and slush and gloom, we’re getting seriously amped up for warm weather, beach days and, most importantly, vacation. Whether your summer break means cookouts and cold beers on the Jersey Shore, white parties and champagne in the Hamptons or ‘smores over the fire in Yellowstone, there’s a charm to classic US vacation towns that holds a special place in our heart. So, as part of our countdown to summer, we’re celebrating homes inspired by our favorite summer getaways. The Hamptons
