Looking forward to taking part in an Instagram takeover for the West Hollywood Design District this coming week, featuring a “Day in the life of”.

On a recent trip to Chicago, I had the opportunity to stay at the newly opened The Langham, an exquisite luxury hotel located at 330 Wabash (home of a Mies van der Rohe designed building). I have been a fan of the architect since my days in design school. The landmark building is located in downtown Chicago adjacent to the river, 52 stories tall, and boasts over 300 guest rooms and suites. The second floor lobby (pictured above) is a testament to simple refined elegance.

The interiors of Travelle, the hotel’s restaurant, features a bar and lounge overlooking the river, and a dining room on the opposite side.

The interiors of Travelle, a great nightlife spot, where I spent an evening hanging out with friends for drinks and food.

The hotel room suites are contemporary, yet classic lines, of understated elegance.

The entry features full height closets and a vanity.

Sophisticated furnishings, neutral colors, and pattern such as the links in the carpet and bedding create a timeless look.

I was in awe of the bar cabinet which features a tilt out for the coffee (happy to find my Nespresso addiction here!), a concealed bar fridge below, and the cabinet and drawers on the sides are stocked with all the hotel amenities you could ever want!

The well-appointed bathroom features a wall mounted Geberit toilet, dual Kohler sinks, and Zucchetti bath fittings.

The walk-in shower is completely walled in minimalist stone with both rainhead and detachable shower sprays and a sleek minimal linear shower drain.

A seperate WC features a wall-mounted toilet from Geberit. The European, contemporary design of Geberit’s wall-mounted toilet complement the Langham’s existing aesthetic. Many European luxury hotel designers have turned to Geberit for the sleek design and space-saving benefits for decades, and designers in the U.S. are beginning to follow suit.

Thank you to Geberit for the opportunity to experience The Langham.

Welcoming another Modenus adventure, this one is not just a city, but an (almost) entire state: California! As a native of Southern California, I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome a group of international bloggers and designers. As an alumni of both Blog Tour London and Blog Tour NYC, along with taking part in hosting last year’s Blog Tour LA group, I am looking forward to meeting up and attending many of the events taking place here in LA in just the few days the group will be here, before they head up the coast for some amazing activities! Welcome Blog Tour California! (Blogger profiles here)

For a highlight of what Modenus has planned for the roadtrip that will be Blog Tour California, you can read the latest post here. For me, I am looking forward to attending the WestEdge Design Fair for it’s second annual show here in LA, at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica. There will also be events in LA hosted by sponsor DXV (who hosted us on Blog Tour NYC too) and Miele. The aptly named BlogToberFest will also be taking place at WestEdge to welcome the bloggers.

Looking forward to attending the 2014 Kohler Blogger Conference early next month in Kohler, WI. We have been invited to stay and experience The American Club, a resort owned and operated by Kohler. In addition we’ll have the opportunity to experience the latest products from Kohler, including a factory tour of the Kohler Design Center. I am looking forward to connecting with several of the other bloggers that I know will be in attendance – and a first time ever visit to Wisconsin! (But first I’ll be starting off with a visit to Chicago where I will meet up with Julia, our Chicago-based blogger, and a visit to her design studio!) More to come on the blog!

Back in June, I attended a breakfast event with Panasonic in conjunction with the Dwell on Design event taking place in Los Angeles. Our breakfast was hosted at the fabulous downtown LA restaurant, Faith & Flower, designed by AVRO | KO. I was taken by the interiors and photographed the space. For a full view, visit the Faith & Flower gallery website here or the designer website. Below are some of my highlights. (The food is great too, highly recommend!)

Blog Tour NYC presented by Modenus

We came, we saw, and we sure did exerience: what happens on Blog Tour NYC gets put all over social media. A few days of whirlwind activities and this blog tour was no exception: cocktail parties, dinner parties, Wanted Design, Kips Bay Showhouse, a private designer residence tour, a meet & greet with NousDecor, an afternoon at ICFF with Mr. Steam and Wilsonart, an exclusive party at MOMA, the High Line walk with Mr. Steam, an intimate dinner with DXV, a private showroom visit to Donghia, and a farewell dinner at the L’Ecole International Culinary Center. Just to summarize.

The best part? A great team. Hosted by Veronika of Modenus, her continued efforts and hard work coordinating one succesful blog tour after another came through again for this tour and I was beyond thrilled to be included as one of the most international groups of bloggers ever as part of Blog Tour NYC. To meet the great group of bloggers that I got to know and bond with personally, visit: Meet The Bloggers

In the coming days, I will be featuring some one on one posts covering the events we attended and the sponsors who all made Blog Tour happen. For now, I thought I would start off with some highlights of a glimpse into my Blog Tour NYC.

And be sure to follow Modenus on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest for recaps from all the bloggers – we all have much to share!

First things first: checking into the CitizenM Hotel Times Square (a unique boutique hotel concept conveniently located just off Broadway). Staying here was all very deja vu for me as I had stayed at their London location while on Blog Tour London.

JillSeidner2

Straight from check in and it was rooftop at the CitizenM to join my fellow bloggers for cocktails before leaving for the first of many events kicking off Blog Tour NYC.

JillSeidner3

And one of those many events was a cocktail reception at the DXV showroom in Manhattan. The highlight for me was reconnecting with my Blog Tour London Besties (from left): Jennifer, Cheryl, me, and Lynn. It was fun to see the gang!

JillSeidner0

The next day, we started off our morning with a vist to Wanted Design. Why the boys? Well, just out of the car, a dozen girls, and the next thing you know these two boys (who just happen to be standing in front of the signage) end up being asked to stand and smile. Makes for a good picture after all.

JillSeidner14

We spent much of that first day traversing the bustling streets of Manhattan: from Wanted Design to the Kips Bay Showhouse and then to a late afternoon cocktail reception at the Scott Sanders designed Printing Press apartment.

JillSeidner5

On our next morning, we attended a breakfast presentation with Blog Tour NYC sponsor, NousDecor. Here’s me, Veronika, and my fave PR person ever, Andrew Joseph (Oh the places we’ve been together! LA, London, NYC, Vegas!)

JillSeidner8

Hitting the streets: the BlogTourettes gather for a selfie before making our way up to ICFF (L-R: me, Annabel, Ann, Kimberly).

JillSeidner6

While at ICFF, it was fun to see my LA friend Ginna exhibiting for Woven Accents. Here’s us standing in front of a Gregory Siff designed rug.

JillSeidner16

That evening, we attended a party at MOMA in conjunction with ICFF. Our group, L-R: Susan, Kathy, Carole, Ann, Anya, me, Iris, Annabel, and Linda.

JillSeidner12

The next morning, with gorgeous weather, we took a walk on the High Line with our friend (rather, like family) Martha of Blog Tour supporter, Mr. Steam. Here’s a street view from the High Line.

JillSeidner15

Taking a little detour from Blog Tour NYC activities, Veronika and I met up with Messe Frankfurt for a late brunch at The High Line Hotel. It was fun to see this very charming hotel, too.

JillSeidner9

That same evening, we had an intimate dinner hosted by DXV at Bar Americain restuarant in Manhattan. (With Annabel and Anya both to my right.)

JillSeidner10

In between amazing events and dinners, there was free time to wander the streets of NYC. On our final day, fellow Blog Tour NYC pal Ann and I made our way through the streets of Lower Manhattan: checking out the Bowery and SoHo as we made our way to the New York Design Center for an afternoon visit to the Christopher Guy showroom. Here’s a view from Washington Square Park on an absolute gorgeous day.

JillSeidner13

Our final and farewell dinner was a multi-course (and multi-wine tasting) sit down dinner (along with a tour!) of the L’Ecole International Culinary Center. It was quite THE experience and I am craving to go back.

And with that, we thank Veronika for everything: #BlogTourNYC inscripted in wood. The hashtag of all hashtags. Thanks for another memorable experience!

Supermodel Karlie Kloss shares her first NYC apartment, located in the West Village, on a quiet street just a few blocks from the Hudson River. She enlisted interior designer Nate Berkus to help her create the chic look go her very first home.

image

The goal was to create a look that reflects her style, in relating to fashion, to mix and match the same way she does with clothes.

One of her favorite spots, she says, is the kitchen – where she has a passion for baking cookies. I love the multi-level / stairs to kitchen with the paned glass and tiny dining banquette.

This past week I attended a special event at Kelly Wearstler’s flagship boutique on Melrose for the celebration of the book, “In The Spirit Of Beverly Hills” published by Assouline. In attendance was both Kelly Wearstler and Nancie Clare, author of the book. The amazing photos in this post were taken by my friend and photographer, Marcia Prentice.
