Movie Inspired Wedding
Vintage Hotel
Historic Building
REPORTER: Jamie Eddy

Newlyweds Heidi and Frank are both owners and wedding savants of the Takk House. This grand victorian building is retrofitted for any occasion—seriously, the couple is known for making the wildest of requests into reality, and loving every minute of it. When it came time to plan their own wedding, they knew they had to go all out, and that they did.

The aged, vintage feel of the building in combination with repurposed items like an old television turned welcome sign, check in, and concierge desk, made Wes Anderson's "The Grand Budapest Hotel" inspired interior to truly come alive. Details of elegant gilded mirrors, historic chandeliers and indoor greenery transport guests back to the 1930s where sipping cocktails, fine dining and jazzing it up on the dance floor was the norm. Heidi and Frank’s innate authenticity and desire to recreate a European hotel escape allowed for their dream wedding to become reality.

Parachute has famously put customers to bed in the coziest linens with their heads atop the softest pillowcases. The bedding company's founder and CEO, Ariel Kaye, was inspired to deliver luxury comfort to bedrooms across the country following a picturesque stay on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. There, after an exhausting day taking in the glories of the colorful seaside paradise, she crawled into bed and it was like sinking into dreams. It was the bed every traveler wishes for, the one they forever hope awaits them after an extraordinary day of hikes, bites, and rides. That’s why the woman who gave us the softest sleeping experience ever is taking things up a notch—by opening a hotel.

Pool Float Product Launch
Serious About Fun
Urban Rooftop Pool Party
REPORTER: Katie David Bush

When one of the coolest, serious-about-fun, girl-led, bad-a** brands in LA approaches you to help them find the most perfect poolside to host their summer product launch soiree, well, if you're us, you roll up yo sleeves and set to one heckuva hot venue search for a "rosé all day".kinda spot.  We'd been fans of the indomintable Jen Gotch and the Ban.do #girlgang for some time, so when the opportunity came about to work together, we knew that hotline bling could only mean one thing.... FUN, and lots of it (ok, ok and lots of neon and pool floats). We knew we needed to find the ultimate location that would show off not only the new Outdoor FUN line of products we'd been dreaming of, posting about and well coveting in a maaaaaajor way for all of our poolside par-TAYs, but the inherent spirit of design and forward-thinking so prevalent in the Ban.do brand. When you NEED a floral day planner, neon bendy straws, rainbow unicorn pool float and an "I Heart Pina Coladas" ring, you know you're onto something special. 

If all the world is a stage, then certainly the venue is the massively important opening act. A hop, skip and a quick cannonball from the heart of Tinseltown in Koreatown we fell in perfect step with the The Line Hotel,  where an unmistakable sense of "cool" and "fun" emanates from it's mid-century bones and it's pedigree reflects the heartbeat of the vibrant city it stands prominently and proudly in the middle of. Perfect.

Harbour-side in Sydney
REPORTER: Jordan Willner

"Do it with passion or not at all." That was the mindset of all those who worked together tirelessly to bring this hip and happening Sydney Hotel to life. Originally built in the early 1900’s, talented historian and designer, Sibella Court of The Society Inc. took on a big project in 2015 when she stepped in to recreate the swanky space in the historic Rocks district to represent all things past and present. Hotel Palisade boasts outstanding accommodations, an industrial neighborhood-inspired pub, and a fab restaurant by day and snazzy lounge by night.

We were recently given the opportunity to sit down with the fabulous Hotel Palisade team who let us in on everything we had to know about this spectacular space. Everything from the history of the hotel to present day features and amenities were discussed and we feel beyond lucky to have been given the chance to learn about all things Hotel Palisade. We already know that you’ll be dreaming of your next stay or fabulous event at this over-the-top amazing spot once you’ve read what we discovered!
