The Whitby Hotel


My love for hotels started when I was 11.  
My family moved overseas and I was lucky enough to stay at some amazing hotels in London, Oman and Dubai.   

Recently I discovered Firmadel Hotels on Instagram (@firmdale_hotels) and I have since become OBSESSED.  They have hotels in New York and London and today I want to share photos of one of their New York Locations. 
The Whitby Hotel.  
Located at:
18 W 56th Street
New York, NY 10019

                                                                  exterior 

Below are photos of Lobby: 
The lobby is light and bring with soaring glass windows and striking artwork.

                                                                                    lobby


The Drawing Room:
The drawing room is a sumptuous and colorful residents lounge with an elegant fireplace, bespoke library collection, original artwork and honesty bar.  The fireplace is Greek, mid 18th century style and features garlands of leaves and acorns tied by ribbon, representing peace, prosperity and longevity.

The Orangery:
The Orangery provides the perfect setting for breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.  There is a stunning wall of 40 illuminated porcelain pots by Martha Freud, each etched with a landmark New York building or bridge.

The hotel has many rooms and suites to choose (all are amazing), the one I'd like to share today is the Whitby Suite.

The Whitby Suite:
The Whitby Suite occupies the entire top floor.  The suite is a spacious two bedroom suite with floor to ceiling windows, two king size bedrooms, a large living room, guest powder room and kitchen. Doors lead onto two sweeping terraces with stunning views of New York, spanning both sides of the hotel.  The oversized white marble bathrooms are beautifully designed with two basins, a deep bath tub and separate shower.

Silkeborg - Ikea turkish rug

Incase you don't already know, Ikea has a great new (limited) rug collection out!  Its called Silkeborg and you won't find it on their website (at least in the US).
Silkeborg rugs are made from vintage Turkish rugs that have been cut up (to save the good parts), dyed, shaved down and then sewn back together to form a one of a kind piece! 
I encourage you to go check them out!  The quality is fantastic and prices are untouchable! 



Below is a photo of the display I did the for Pittsburgh store.
And one of the little guys I picked up for under my kitchen sink.

Let me know what you think after you've seen them in person!

North Fork, Long Island

I know summer is almost upon us... I just couldn't resist posting these photos. When I'm asked to envision a weekend house in my head, this is what I see.
