#HowIClubhouse: Virgin Atlantic EWR

ERWmain.jpg This post is presented by Virgin Atlantic ~ Clubhouse [kluhb-hous] (v): The art of enjoying one’s time before a journey in an exquisite manner unique to Virgin Atlantic. How do you Clubhouse? Send us a picture of you enjoying your favorite Clubhouse experience on Twitter or Instagram, using the #HowIClubhouse. Well, to see how WE clubhouse, Virgin Atlantic invited us to check out their latest lounge in EWR (Newark, NJ).

It seemed only appropriate that with all of this twitter/instagram fun around #HowIClubhouse, that we share our adventure lounging at the brand new Virgin Atlantic Newark Clubhouse through Instagram photos! From the fun decor (tons of designer seating, lighting, and more) - to the beautiful mirrored, geometric bar (and delicious drinks) ~ to the screening room ~ to the Mirror Cube of infinite instagram mirrored madness of an installation we built right here in our NOTlabs… We hear that this lounge is so coveted that the British Airways passengers in the lounge next door often try to buy their way into the Clubhouse because, “every night seems like a party.” Rumor has it that with two flights a day at 8am and 8pm, people come straight from work to have a few drinks before their flight, as well as dinner (or breakfast if you’re there for the 8am)! It’s a beautiful space to relax and unwind pre-flight, and there are so many fun design details… take a peek at how our friend and photographer Jessica clubhoused for us on the next page!

The Saguaro Palm Springs

sag0.jpg Happy 2013!!! To ring in the new year, we suddenly decided to hop in the car and escape to Palm Springs, relaxing and celebrating an incredible 2012 in the brilliantly colored Saguaro Palm Springs. While it still has the layout and feel of a roadside motel of day’s past, the classic Joie de Vivre style of livening and updating it certainly breathes new life into the space. From the hallways to the patios to the lobby, you can’t escape the playful rainbow that follows you everywhere… the color palette just screams HAPPY all over! Take a peek at the details on the next page… from looking inside our room, to running around with my cell phone, and more!

Incase EO Travel Collection

incaseEO0.jpg Incase just launched their new EO Travel Collection of carry-ons and it’s gorgeously functional! They aren’t kidding when they say it was designed for the “evolving traveler who relies on personal technology for business, pleasure and inspiration. Each EO Travel bag combines smart organization and dependable protection to make the travel experience easier, safer and more efficient.” I’m forever on my quest to perfect my carry-on packing and optimaize getting through security with each technology upgrade in my usual arsenal… the thoughtfulness of the details in the bags is enticing. I’ve been dying for an international sized polycarb roller that allows an easy unzip section to go through the scanner without needing to take the laptop out! (Also love that the hard shell roller expands!) And the duffel has an easy access, outside padded pocket ready for your 15” mbp.

Not having seen them in person yet, my two picks are definitely the hard shell roller and duffel. The flat polycarb of the hard shell seems to scream out for customization (so if you end up in the situation where everyone has one too…) you can easily sticker bomb it… or perhaps laser engrave on it? So many possibilities. Also love that the duffel is simple enough on the outside, you don’t scream “There’s a laptop in here” while traveling… Take a peek at the details and videos on the next page!

A Swedish 'Red Cottage' in London

swedishredcottage-7833.jpg

Here’s the latest from our London based editor, Justine Aw.

A little red cottage has sprung up in the middle of Old Truman Brewery in East London. This unexpected iconic little cottage is a portal to Sweden for just three days to celebrate Sweden and offer us a taste of what Sweden has to offer, showcasing the regions of Skåne, West Sweden and Luleå. The use of the space within Old Truman Brewery is fantastic, complete with a moose head and reindeer and transforming the space into a fabulous dining room that manages to be decadent yet cozy and putting a beautiful emphasis on the kitchen too.

Tonight we were lucky enough to enjoy a taste of the Luleå region of Swedish Lapland with chef Richard Karlsson. And if our dinner was anything to go by, Luleå is delicious! Our evening opened with an unusual, but rather tasty birch sap wine, followed by three courses of delicacies including Kalix Löjrom (a delicious caviar collected only for a few short weeks each year), succulent grilled reindeer and a fantastic pie made from the gorgeous subarctic marsh growing cloudberry. More photos of our fantastic dinner on the next page!

Red Bull Stratos

stratos0.jpg It has been quite the week, so, apologies for being a bit quiet. A last minute super packed trip to San Francisco came up, so jumped in the car and ended up barely able to have enough time to sleep let alone post (feel’s like a first i a while!) and just got back to Los Angeles, missing the Endeavour have its slow parade like drive across LA, but just in time to wake up and watch the Red Bull Stratos jump - LIVE! And it was mesmerizing… stunning to see the views and how fast he was freefalling! “Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground. His attempt to dare atmospheric limits holds the potential to provide valuable medical and scientific research data for future pioneers.” And wow - it was quite a sight to see even via laptop… See screenshots from the event moments ago on the next page, and find out more about the mission and the team at Red Bull Stratos!

Valet: Travel. Curated.

valet0a.jpg The last few months have been a non-stop burst of trips trailing from Los Angeles to Nashville and Cincinnati (and the roads between) to Istanbul, San Diego, Linz, Venice, London, Florence and more… The biggest difference this summer? More personal trips than work trips! (Though many overlap!) Ultimately it made me realize how insanely picky i’ve become when picking my own hotels… and finding the awesome, not so touristy, fun spots to check out!

So, on new online experiences to help with such dilemmas, enter - Valet! Launched by our friend and jetsetter, Josh Spear with Aaron Rutledge, Valet is an exclusive new travel company filled with a carefully curated collection of hotels and travel guides with favorites from folks like Josh Rubin of CoolHunting, Jeff Staple, Ben Clymer of Hodinkee, and you can even find some of my favorites showing up on the site bit by bit. As they say, “Our curators are some of the most interesting and influential people in the world. For many of them, Valet was a safe place to finally share their city secrets.”

While this is just the beginning, there are nearly 100 hotels in over 50 cities around the globe in the system already ~ and in addition to the New York City guide, Shanghai is right around the corner! Being an exclusive, curated membership site they are looking to build a community for “creative professionals, tastemakers and frequent travelers who appreciate curation, design, and great value over bargain-basement price shopping and recommendations amassed from dozens of anonymous reviews.” And one of my favorite details of their system? On top of special benefits and pricing at some of my usual hotels… no physical card to add to my ever growing wallet! They’ve made their membership cards digital, so you can easily pull them up on your phone/laptop/Apple Passbook. Also keep an eye out for their upcoming iPhone and iPad apps.

You can apply here and use the code: NOTCOT to get in early and lock in the launch membership rate of $199/year. Ready to take a peek at what you can find inside Valet? See screenshots for a sneak peek inside Valet on the next page!

Inspiration: London/Florence

insta0.jpg Phew - Back home in LA now! Beyond what makes it to posts, every trip seems to accumulate a pile of cellphone/instagram photos. You’ve seen the ones from Istanbul and Linz (and part II)… so between London to Florence and back to London for design week/exploring… the last 2 weeks has also lead to a wealth of randomness that hasn’t made it into regular posts. Some made it to instagram and twitter, others seemed like a waste to leave in my phone and not remember them somewhere! So if you’re ready for an epic photo dump of the silliness and inspiration that popped up the last two weeks… click on to the next page!

Tuscan Trees + Mercedes CLS Shooting Brake

firenze0.jpg Currently in Florence, Italy with Mercedes-Benz to try out the new CLS Shooting Brake. It’s quite fun (esp the AMG one) ~ and even prettier in person! Josh Rubin of CoolHunting and i were driving together for much of today, and as we went from airport to castle to florence and such, we were ultimately hunting for the ultimate tree/forest lined spot to shoot some car pictures… and as i was driving, Josh suddenly found the perfect spot and although we had to go a few twists and turns before being able to safely turn back to make it up the street he spotted, it was totally worth it!

Welcome to Località Lilliano near Poggibonsi, Siena, Italy. It is one of the most magical streets you’ll ever wander down. The trees are AMAZING. The way they branch… the lush green color… the way they line the whole street… the way the sunlight dances through the leaves and off the matte designo magno white paint job of the CLS Shooting Brake… SO. before i crash this 3am, i had to share these pictures of the Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake and the trees on the next page!!!

p.s.
There’s something very Rorschach looking about some of the tree images!

Sisters of Los Angeles

sola1.jpg This post is part of a content series presented by smartwatersmartwater, good taste travels well. Click here to learn more. The opinions and content in this post are 100% NOTCOT, smartwater is supporting us to share what we love with you! Advertisement

On travels, one of the hardest things is always to find souvenirs that are memorable but not too kitchsy. Something that will fit back in with your world at home or those you are gifting it to ~ but still stand out enough to bring back fond memories of a place. So i was thrilled when i just found this new line of Los Angeles Souvenirs, essentially for locals by locals, that are the prefect gift/reminder to visitors of how awesome the REAL Los Angeles can be! These glasses are by Sisters of Los Angeles, “a unique, Los Angeles-inspired gift and modern memorabilia collection that reflects all the best that the City of Los Angeles has to offer. ” Who does it come from? “SoLA is designed by celebrated Architect and Author of Bohemian Modern: Living in Silver Lake, Barbara Bestor ; successful product development specialist and manufacturer’s rep Karen Alweil; and fashion/lifestyle publicist and marketing expert Sara Stein.” Now i’m just wishing they had Pacific Palisades glasses to go with their Hollywood, Beaches series, Canyon series, and freeway (10, 405, 110, 101) series! You can currently find some online at Ron Robinson… see more pictures of the tastefully fun travel souvenirs by Sisters of Los Angeles on the next page!

Inspiration: Linz Part 2

morelinz0.jpg More fun crazy inspiration i’ve run into in Linz that has been captured on my cell phone (all of these, once again, are on the HTC One S which i finally got unlocked, so some pics popping up on instagram/twitter while i’m here now!) The first batch of craziness can be seen here.

This time we have everything from subtle MUSTACHE building! To a peek at the behind the scenes set up of the F.U.C.K. Project… fun signage and typography… toy store adventures… the super bright colors of Ar Electronica at night… stamping my arm with infographics… the solar sintering contraption in real life… and more!
