by Emily Thompson

Emily was raised in the Northeast Kingdom, U.S. state of Vermont and travelled from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the University of Pennsylvania, to UCLA, where she earned her MFA in sculpture. Her work as an artist evokes nature in “magnificent style” and it is deeply inspired by William Gilpin, the 18th century theorist of the picturesque…

Trempeskill Country Store

Trempeskill Country Store

Catskills, Usa

Once upon a time, Candy and Edchin – a teacher and an engineer respectively – lived in Long Island. They arrived in Andes, NY, by chance, and became fond of the town. Therefore, when they found out that the Gas Station business was for sale, they decided that this would be a nice place to live. We, too, arrived in Andes by chance and, thanks to them, became immediately fond of the town, of their love story and of their peculiar gas station/diner/shop. Get here hungry and rely on Candy. She will disappear into the kitchen and come back with a giant version of your toasted sandwich. You will wolf it down sitting at the one informal table of the shop, among the shelves of vintage toys and preserves.

Arcade Bakery

Arcade Bakery

New York, USA

Today at breakfast you disappear behind the glass door of a lobby in Church Street, order a soft Danish pastry with raisins and an Americano, then slowly enjoy them while watching the coming and going in the building’s corridor. You will not feel like you are exaggerating when you define this odd bakery in Tribeca a bizarre and ingenious work.

The Fat Radish

The Fat Radish

New York, USA

There are menus that are so good you can’t help getting excited. If we were to dine at The Fat Radish tonight we would probably go for Chickpea Hummus, Beet Crumble and The Fat Radish Plate. Or actually, looking again at the menu, we would end up asking our friends to share in order to make sure we double the chances of trying almost every dish on the menu.

Isa

Isa

New York, USA

We went there for brunch on a Saturday morning when NY was covered in snow. As soon as we got in, we were welcomed by the smell of burning wood in the stove and we couldn’t help but smiling. It was like being in a mountain refuge. The combination of wood, light tones and clean lines reminds of sophisticated Scandinavian design. Against it, the artistic menus and the patchwork curtain at the entrance stand out for their vivid colour. Don’t miss the mouth-watering panettone donuts or the deliciously nutty homemade granola with fresh fruit.

WYTHE HOTEL

WYTHE HOTEL

New York, USA

Manhattan is there, past the Hudson, just like living wallpaper. Opened last spring in what once was a textile factory on the Williamsburg waterfront, Wythe hotel is one of NY highlights from last year. If you don’t have the chance to sleep here, make sure you come at least for a bite. Reynards Restaurant, with open-air kitchen, wooden oven and grill, serves daily menus using seasonal ingredients. No room service is available.

Lafayette house

Lafayette house

New York, USA

An old creaking staircase, velvet of perfect shades, from perfectly balanced reds, to sage and crimson and a fireplace facing the bed. No reception and no breakfast room (only room service, à la carte), nothing to make you feel like you’re in a hotel. The atmosphere is what you would find in a discreet, sophisticated, beautiful house, only a few steps away from Bowery.
