This gorgeous new hotel in Barcelona caught my eye on instagram. I’ve only been to Spain once and now the Cotton House Hotel has me itching to get back. I love the mix of the canopy bed, mid-century light fixture, and sumptuous blue velvet sofa in the Damask Suite pictured above. The hotel is housed in an historic 19th century building that was once the headquarters of the Association of Cotton House Manufacturers. Adding this Spanish getaway to my bucket list…
The eagerly awaited Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicked off this morning and I’ll be snatching up my fall wardrobe at a steep discount. Not only are there tons of shoes (Rag & Bone, Vince, Nike, and more…), but there’s also serious savings on home, jewelry, handbags, and of course, clothes. Above, some of my top picks.

Designer Allegra Hicks has settled into her three-bedroom penthouse in Naples quite nicely. Vogue Living published the modern interior that Hicks shares with her husband, Roberto Mottola di Amato. Roberto grew up in the apartment and gave his wife full decorating reign after the space was renovated in 2014. The result is a mid-century-inspired Italian masterpiece brimming with Allegra’s bold fabric and rug designs. I especially love the master bedroom walls which are covered in a silk tapestry embroidered with landscapes of Naples sketched by Allegra. The designer had it embroidered in Delhi and chose blue, Roberto’s favorite color. A stylish interior with a personal touch–handsome, indeed.

These shots from the Madewell summer 2015 look book make the case for crisp white denim and classic tees. I can’t wait to pick up a few pieces from their second Sézane collaboration for my upcoming trip to Paris.
