Located in an 18th-century palace on a square in Lisbon’s old cultural quarter lies Santa Clara 1728. In this palace you’ll find 6 luxurious suites that will make your stay in Lisbon unforgettable. The owners of the palace, Joao and Andrea Rodrigues, also live in the palace with their children so it’s more like staying with friends than an actual hotel. They renovated this beautiful property with friend and architect Manuel Aires Mateus and showed the utmost respect to the building’s architecture. Combine the building’s amazing architecture with minimalistic design and you’ll get one of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever seen.

Lokal Hotel in Philadelphia is a project by husband and wife – Chad and Courtney Ludeman. As travel ánd design lovers they found that hotel rooms are often the same old boring rooms. To make a change in hotel stays they decided to open Lokal Hotel. The interior of the hotel is mainly designed by one of my favourite designers Percy & Tara from Jersey Ice Cream Co. The loft-like rooms are ideal for short ánd a long-term stay. They have a seperate bedroom, a living room and a stunning (blue) kitchen, so they are more apartments than just a simple hotel room. The rooms are styled with vintage and modern design and the industrial features of the building remain visible (yay!). The hotel will open in april & you can book your stay now on the website of Lokal Hotel.

The suite is designed by architect Eva-Lotta Axelsson – founder of Nude Studio. The theme of the suite is ‘World Citizen’ and to create this feeling they choose to decorate it with furniture from B&B Italia. The suite has a luxurious feeling but it also feels a bit like a home. It’s not just an impersonal hotel room, it is a space you can relax in. And if the design isn’t enough to win you over, the suite has also views over the Old Town and the Royal Castle of Stockholm.
