Beautiful Hotel Interiors

Located in the heart of Venice Beach, California, The Parachute Hotel offers a new, one of kind destination. Dreamed up by local home essentials brand Parachute, it was designed by Scott Horne and Peter Dolkas, and has been stylishly curated with a cool California vibe.


Parachute bedding—a retailer of high-quality sheets evangelized by fashion and lifestyle bloggers—has transformed the loft above its Venice Beach store into a single 2,200 SF hotel room that functions more like an Airbnb. It has beautiful raw materials – wood and jute with a neutral, milky color palette inspired by the beach.

Catering for events, parties and private stays, Parachute features beautiful homewares, warm touches of rattan and statement artwork throughout, the hotel also has a ‘shoppable’ concept, meaning everything is available to buy.

Beautiful Puglia, Italy


Will somebody please drop me off in this place and let me stay for awhile? It is gorgeous! Who really cares where it is but for those who do…at the heel of the Italian peninsula lies Puglia, a region best known for its Tuscan cuisine as well as its arid, rustic landscape on which a splendid display of whitewashed towns and villages highlights the scenery. The area produces much of the country’s wine, olive oil, produce, and wheat used to make pasta. The cuisine alone is enough to make me want to go. In the north, the mountainous terrain of Gargano greets the Adriatic with dramatic white cliffs overlooking azure waters, and as you travel down the coast, the view transforms into sand pebble beaches mingling between ancient farmland. At the southern tip lies the beautiful town of Lecce, known as “Florence of the South” for the splendor and profusion of its baroque architecture from the 17th Century.
