AS AGNES REPPLIER SAID, THE IMPULSE TO TRAVEL IS ONE OF THE HOPEFUL SYMPTOMS OF LIFE. WE FIND THIS IN A SERIES OF HIGHWAYS, MILE MARKERS, AND HORIZON LINES. WE BECOME LIFE’S JOURNEYMEN, COLLECTORS OF LITTLE VIGNETTES FORMED BY EXPLORING, SEEING, AND EXPERIENCING THINGS WE HAVEN’T BEFORE. AND EACH OF THESE COLLECTIONS IS UNIQUELY OURS. SO LET’S SHIFT OUR THINKING ABOUT HOW WE DO THIS. LET’S GET OUT OF THE PASSENGER SEAT AND BECOME ARCHITECTS OF OUR OWN PERSONALIZED TRAVEL EXPERIENCES.
To help construct a well-designed vacation, we’ve hit the road to bring you some of our favorite picks for modern rentals. Thanks to the convenience of technology, it’s now easier than ever to access architecturally intriguing abodes right at your fingertips. But this isn’t your average accommodation roundup. From Palm Springs to Tokyo, the difference is in the design details. Hawaiian luau in a posh pad? We’ve got you covered like the canopy. Colorado camping in a vintage Airstream? We’ll get you there in style. Dreaming about a Wright? Now you can dream in one—or five, to be precise. Whether structurally significant, boasting interiors that intrigue, or just putting the “fun” in funky, these properties change the way we think about travel. So as summer starts to sizzle, let’s design our inclination to experience global destinations individually together. After all, it’s only through travel that we see our own lives a little better, a little clearer. Or, to paraphrase Proust, the real voyage of discovery consists not necessarily in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
THINK ABOUT TRAVEL, DESIGNED. AND LET’S GO.
