Creativity – 1. the state or art of being creative. 2. the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination
…and mostly easier said than done. It’s sometimes hard to feel inspired to create. It’s not exactly like a tap you turn on or off when you want (although there are the lucky few), so it is important to feed the creative beast by seeking inspiration from the world around. When you get that craving to create an incredibly wonderful environment, atmosphere and concept, you can learn a lot if you just keep our eyes open and take note of some remarkable designs already in existence. And seeing as its still summer, we thought we’d celebrate some amazing hotel designs we’ve come across on our travels to point out different experiences you can create which, in turn, will hopefully get your creative juices flowing.
A Plane Hotel Suite: Located on the edge of the Manuel Antonio National Park, this exclusive resort in Costa Rica is a special suite in a vintage 1965 Boeing 727. The two bedroom suite is perched on a pedestal of 50 metres and as the cockpit juts out beyond the edge of the cliff, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the sea and surrounding area. With hand carved furnishings in Indonesian teak, this place provides a perfect example of that truly authentic relaxing experience (unless your afraid of heights!)
The Invisible Room: How unique it would be to spend a night in this lovely mirror cube room where you can blend in with nature? This mirror cube is part of the TreeHotel in Sweden, best known for having rooms suspended among the trees. It’s a 4x4x4x4 room covered in reflective glass on all sides enabling this room to be almost invisible to the naked eye. But it doesn’t stop there, you can stay in the birds nest, the UFO or the Blue Cone. We highly recommend checking out their website and having a look at more of their designs.
The Boot Bed N’ Breakfast: Remember the woman who lived in a shoe? Designed by Steve Richards, this is a two up two down luxury cottage based in the heart of the Ruby Coast, Tasman Bay, New Zealand. The boot adopts sustainable practices and delivers a perfect fairy tale accommodation feel. A comfy lounge with open fire, a queen sized bed, and Juliet balcony all add to this being the perfect romantic get away. With 2.4 hectare garden surroundings, you could also take a Hansel & Gretel walk leaving pebbles in your path so as not to get lost.
Whilst you’re on your summer break keep those eyes firmly open you as you can find inspiration all around. And if you would like to have a creative pow-wow why not get in touch, we love new ideas and can help you make them a reality.
