Stay With Me

When it comes to experiencing a new city, I always say that are two kinds of people: food people and hotel people. Nice to meet you, I am a hotel person.

I think hotel design is one of the most exciting applications of the discipline. The intersection of interior design, industrial design, art and branding to create an physical environment is thrilling to me, especially when it is done well.

I recently bought a new book, Stay With Me, by Catherine Harvey, a graphic designer and writer who has traveled the world in search of the most compelling and well-designed boutique hotels. It is a must-read comprehensive guide of the most in inns on Earth.
