Introducing the Luxe Hotel Collection
Who loves a holiday? We do!
The team at Arete Culture has been busy shopping the globe and has amassed quite the (impressive) collection from their travels. From mother-of-pearl mirrors to silk cushion covers and handmade ceramics, this place has it all! But that’s not all – you can also request custom-made products here. Do we sense a shopping trip?

Favourite holiday destination: Bali
Dream picks: Bali is all about kicking back and enjoying a drink (or three), which is exactly what I would love to do in my own place – if only I had the time! I’m inspired by Bali’s vibrancy; the island is a riot of refreshing colours. As a creative person, I always find myself drawn to handmade items, like these ceramic pitchers. But I really have my eye on The Luxe Hotel Collection’s extensive cushion collection, made of luxe and bright silks as well as more child-friendly washable cotton covers. And don’t these cushions really complement the mesmerizing artwork – who doesn’t love a splash of yellow?

Favourite holiday destination: Turkey
Dream picks: Turkey is a beautiful country, but what stands out is the brilliant blue; it’s the colour of the iconic Turkish talisman that wards off the evil eye. So I was naturally attracted to this turquoise blue cushion cover that’s customized with Korla fabric – gotta love me some personalization! The ornate embroidery on the other cushions is reminiscent of the intricate handiwork you find all around Turkey. But my favourite piece, hands down, is this unabashedly pink painting. Between vivid sunsets and freshly squeezed pomegranate juice, this painting is the quintessence of a Turkish summer.

Favourite holiday destination: Bangkok… at least till I visit Japan!
Dream picks: I am a thorough city slicker – beach retreats don’t cut it for me. I think I travel for street food and love supporting local designers, which means I often have noisy but friendly encounters with the locals. Decorating-wise I’m definitely more pared down; I like solid neutrals like these throw cushions. But I also love colour, which means I do appreciate the odd accessory in stunning hues. That explains why I couldn’t pass up this statement artwork – pink on black? I’m in!
