The NoMad Hotel
Pretend, for a moment, that you live in an elegant apartment in Paris (designed by Jacques Garcia, no less): high ceilings, white walls, oversized windows and reclaimed maple floors covered in a thick oriental rug. Your king-sized bed is framed in a leather headboard, trimmed in brass nailheads and made up with crisp Frette sheets and a lofty down comforter.
Original artworks, antique illustrations and framed postcards of your travels grace the walls. Commodious vintage leather club chairs with cozy throws sit beside a massive steamer trunk. Your bath? A classic mix of white subway and marble tile, those glossy floorboards, tasteful nickel fixtures and a separate W.C. That’s the new NoMad Hotel. The downside? Checking out and going home.
