Many hotels allow you to buy the bathrobes, but how about everything in the room? At Items B&B in Belgium, the only thing not for sale is the building itself.
Located in the fashionable coastal town of Knokke, Items B&B is in many ways a typical luxe establishment: housed in an historic building, it offers breakfasts, a romantic garden, and a relaxing pool. But the similarities to more traditional accommodations end there, as this B&B is stocked and styled by cutting-edge designer Bea Mombaers. Much like Bea's nearby Items store, Items B&B offers up the same iconic decor, available right from your very own room.
