Our Instagram feed has been torturing us all winter with the daily tales of other people’s tropical getaways. This week, we’re taking a series of vicarious vacations. And we want to see your own travel discoveries. Tag them #RemodelistaTravels on Instagram–on Friday, we’ll publish a reader roundup on Remodelista.
- A lampshade you might actually want to wear? Jaunty, sun-hat-shaped lights are our latest High/Low discovery. (And these examples are woven from recycled soda bottles.)
- On Tuesday, we’re making a return visit to the Drift San Jose in Baja, Mexico, a $75-a-night design resort that’s filled with DIY ideas. Photograph by Maggie Davis and Vanessa Smith, courtesy of upstart travel journal Tiny Atlas Quarterly (@tinyatlasquarterly).
- The idea that “every home is a micronation, and every nation needs an emblem” inspired two designers in Paris to stitch a series of flags. Stay tuned for Tuesday’s Art & Decoration post.
- Late one night, photographer Rhiannon Taylor’s Instagram feed @inbedwith.me transported us to Port Fairy, Australia, and this artfully revived Victorian. Check in to the B&B with us on Wednesday.
- A perfect souvenir from Morocco, this week’s Furniture find stands ready to be used indoors or out.
- On Thursday, in Hotels & Lodging, Elizabeth Roberts of Ensemble Architecture, DPC leads us to her favorite island destination (not coincidentally, it’s designed and owned by an architect). And in Remodeling 101, Janet explores the appeal of polished concrete floors, a material now having its day in the sun not just in tropical places.
