It’s been a hot, hazy summer here in Boston. The kind of heat that makes you really cranky and not want to do anything but slump on your sofa in the A/C and watch The Hangover for the 50th time because you don’t have the energy to argue with your husband to change the channel. In short, it’s been miserable and it’s been making me dream of where I can go on a jet plane to escape. Granted, a lot of the places I want to go are hot right now too, but it somehow seems more bearable in a foreign country than in my hometown. So when I saw the posts from my girls Erika and Paloma about their respective trips to Italy and Barcelona I began plotting and dreaming of where I want to go. Since I’ve already been to Italy (a magnificent 2 week trip in high school with a group of my fave girls and one awesome chaperone- Mrs. Delana, for those MPSers reading) I think Barcelona might be on the schedule for spring 2011. But what a tough choice…
Erika posted pictures from her visit to the J.K. Place in Florence and I about died. Florence was my favorite Italian city and this hotel looks like absolute perfection! You can take such inspiration for your own home from these rooms!
Oh hello amazing ceiling. Can I stare at you all day while sipping fine Italian espresso?
One for me, one for you. And a view to compliment the bubbly.
And just when you are thinking “Yup, that place is perfection” I’m gonna go ahead and blow your mind with the J.K. Capri. I mean, REALLY. REALLY. I can’t even deal with this level of awesomeness.
Navy walls make me HAPPPPPPPYYYY!
This next picture made me yelp out loud.
I need to wake up here once in my life.
And drink/sun/smile like an idiot here.
I can’t explain why my text is now it italics. I can’t fix it so you’re gonna have to deal. :) Anywhoo, Paloma was next in posting pics from her trip to Barcelona and I am now 100% certain I will be staying where she stayed which was the Hotel Pulitzer designed by Lázaro Rosa Violán.
Paloma was incredibly lucky to get to meet Lázaro and tour his own studio! AMAZEBALLS!
Those panels! That chevron floor!
Those are some luxurious drapes. LOVE.
When can I leave???
