L’Hôtel Marrakech by Jasper Conran

Owned by Jasper Conran, L’Hôtel Marrakech is  without a doubt one of the most stylish hotels in Morocco. This historic 19th Century Riad combines superb Moroccan craftsmanship with pieces of Jasper’s antique furniture, textiles, lighting and art – some of which were acquired from the personal collections of Bill Willis and Yves Saint Laurent.

Originally the central part of a Caidal palace, L’Hôtel Marrakech comprises five spacious suites surrounding a uniquely wide courtyard garden and swimming pool. This charming retreat combines delicious food, great comfort and service whilst capturing the elegance of hotels of the1930s.

The Whitby Hotel

Tim and Kit Kemp, founders of Firmdale Hotels have now opened The Whitby, their second New York hotel.

The Whitby Hotel is a celebration of contemporary art and design. There are 86 individually designed bedrooms and suites, each with floor to ceiling windows, many with a private terrace and stunning views of the Manhattan skyline. Interiors have been designed by Kit Kemp, acclaimed for her individual and unique way of arranging spaces with a colourful and carefree spirit. There is also The Whitby Bar and Restaurant, an Orangery, book-lined Drawing Room, private outdoor terrace as well as three beautifully designed private event rooms, a 130 seat state-of-the-art cinema and a fully equipped gym.

And yes, you can put an Isamu Noguchi lamp next to Pakistani fabrics and an antique french campaign bed and it all can look perfect together.
