Book Review: Chic Stays

Chic Stays: Conde Nast Traveller's Favorite Peope on Their Favorite Places

Who doesn't love a vacation? Am I right? I mean, it really doesn't even matter where you go, or for how long you respite, if you're away from the reality of your day to day life - you're vacationing; and we all love it! Unfortunately, we don't all have the opportunity to vacation as much as we'd like, let alone as much as we think we need. That's why books like Chic Stays are so important in our homes. They allow us to take vacations vicariously through pictures while inspiring our interiors, and future vacation plans. 

Chic Stays does exactly that, acting as one part inspiring Interior Design book, one part Travel diary. The glorious coffee table book catalogs the world's most beautiful hotels and homes frequented by our favorite super stars during their luxury jaunts across the globe. Actors, musicians, writers, even models all share their personal stories of thirty-six of some of the most stunning locations on the globe. Let's take a little look: 

The palazzo at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles, California, which Florence Welch (the songstress of Florence and the Machine) describes as half sanctuary, half madhouse. 

Actress Kate Winslet finds her solice on the Scottish island of  Eilean Shona, where J M Barrie wrote Peter Pan! 

Beautiful siren keys at LES MISERABLES actor Eddie Redmayne's favorite luxury hotel in Italy, Le Sirenuse.

Le Sirenuse. 

Rosamund Pike, the actress from the movie GONE GIRL, and the much anticipated A UNITED KINGDOM, writes about her favorite hotel in Beijing, the Aman Summer Palace Hotel.

Chic Stays is saturated with glorious photographs filling more than 260-pages in a volume that is so large it could also double as a weapon! For years, Assouline has created some of the most treasured and coveted coffee table books in the publishing industry, and this one is no exception. Famous contributors to the book include Sofia Coppola, singer Beth Ditto, Eva Longoria, Guy Ritchie, and socialite Olivia Palermo all on their favorite hot spots, and private escapes from Italy to Oregon, Austin to Sri Lanka. 

It has simply become one of my most favorite books to curl up with on these cold, winter days in Western New York, and I think you'll love it too! Take a closer look, and purchase your copy via the Amazon link below:
