Israel, land of milk and honey


There are many good reasons to visit Israel. From the breathtaking landscapes, endless historical and religious sights, to plenty of incredibly friendly and beautiful people. The past week Israel celebrated its 64th anniversary and as usual the independence day was commemorated with joy and happiness all around the world.
 So this week I'll include Israel in my blog. I'll be blogging about how culture has influence the design and review two really cool hotels.

CULTURE
 
The last couple of years  Israeli designers have emerge in the design world as a funky, innovative and creative people. Recently the country added another landmark: its first museum devoted entirely to design. Designed by Ron Arad, Israel’s acclaimed architect. The Holon Design Museum opened in March 2010 and has quickly established itself as one of the world's leading museums of design and contemporary culture. 



HOTELS

BROWN URBAN HOTEL

Boutique hotels are popping all over Tel Aviv. Stylish with personalized service, the Brown Urban Hotel is a cost-effective choice if you're planning on staying in this beautiful city. Inspired on the 1970s glams, the Brown Hotel brings a touch of  Manhattan chic with a blend of a "private club" feel with dark wooden floors, leather couches and a library.




MAMILLA HOTEL

If you are planning a trip to Jerusalem, the Mamilla Hotel is a must see. Located in the old city, this luxurious hotel combines old elements like the "Jerusalem stone" with modern contemporary furniture, creating a peaceful, classy and trendy luxury hotel. To protect Jerusalem’s ancient ambiance, all new constructions must, by law, use the local light-hued limestone called Jerusalem Stone.
