TRAVEL

The Vals Thermal Spa put Swiss architect Peter Zumthor on the map in 1996, and for good reason. When the town of Vals, a canton of Graub√ľnden, Switzerland, hired Peter Zumthor to design their thermal baths, he was an undiscovered talent. He soon achieved cult status (he won the Pritzker Prize in 2009) and the thermal baths became a mecca for architects around the world.

CAKES/ BREAKFAST BREADS

Sundays have turned into mandatory baking days for me recently. I'm really into not-so-sweet cakes- they're great breakfast breads the next day! Here are my favorites...

LE SHACK

Isabel Marant's French countryside cabin is thirty minutes outside Paris and relies on water pumped from the nearby spring. A perfect, simple getaway.

RESTAURANT







De Kas, a greenhouse turned restaurant, lies in the outskirts of Amsterdam in the heart of Frankendael Park and is, without a doubt, my favorite place in the world. The food (which is set and totally dependent on what the outlying ground have to offer) is amazing and the atmosphere is striking- you just feel special for being part of it.  I would make this a must on your next trip to Amsterdam.
