What does a Building need to be, to create a Fabulous Hotel where you don't want to go home?

I recently stayed at the much applauded new Hotel Hotel

in Canberra,

and was surprised to discover

it made me feel like 

I never wanted to leave.

So what is it about a Hotel 

that makes you want to stay longer?

Could it be the building itself?

Is Ethical Luxury the New Black?

Made in Chicago, this bamboo fibre glamorous dress by Stix and Roses is typical of the new trend for Ethical Luxury.

Pondering about the growing trend for 

locally made, animal friendly, high quality material products 

around the world,

and whether, as Tom Ford suggested, 

that Ethical Luxury is the future in 

clothing, footwear, home wares, cosmetics, and food.

The latest Garden Trends from MIFGS 2015 :: colour, looseness, flow....

held each Autumn in a glorious park in the city.

Of course, my camera was kept busy,

as there were lots of lovely gardens to admire....
