Eclectic Vintage Inspired Austin Home

Austin, Texas is home to plenty of transplants– all with some great style. This quaint little home on New York Avenue is the perfect abode with just the right amount of eclecticism. Owners Nick and Stephanie share the home with their dog, and the interior is a mixture of graphites, whites and natural wood.

Eclectic Vintage Inspired Austin Home

Though it is a bit of an older home, the floor plan is quite open with the kitchen and living spaces running into one another. There are gallery walls galore in all of the rooms, with gold frames and red accents. A giant ‘slow’ sign sits above the french style settees and chairs, and the siding from the exterior carries on into the interior kitchen area.

Emirates Luxury Private Jet

Dubai-based Emirates has always been a leading airline in service and product, and today they upped the ante in their luxury offerings. The new Emirates Executive service will accommodate up to 19 passengers in an exclusive, private Airbus A319, bringing all of the posh amenities from the legacy Emirates service.

The aircraft will be equipped with a highly configurable dining and work lounge, ten first class sleeping suites and a premium shower spa, then stocked with Emirates catering and crew. The aircraft should have a range of about 3700 nautical miles.

"Emirates Executive"

Though it’s fairly common for legacy airlines to offer charter service as an extension to their commercial product, launch of the Emirates Executive product is unique in that it takes their industry-leading first class and distils it into a 19 person corporate jet. And as their first class commercial product is often more expensive than the competition, you can expect that their charters will command a premium as well.

Top Luxury Hotel – SPITBANK FORT

We just came across this marvelous scenario in Hampshire and could not miss this opportunity to show you this. It’s a great idea, surrounded by water, a private set to enjoy the best moments in peace with the one you love the most. Watch the pictures and became speechless.


It started as a Fortress and then it was converted into a luxury private island and hotel after being disposed of by the Ministry of Defense in 1982.

Spitbank Fort is an unusual and historic sea fortress in the Solent, off Portsmouth. Now a luxury exclusive venue and hotel, the fort was formerly home to hundreds of soldiers guarding the approaches to Portsmouth. The arms and ammunition have long been removed, making way for nine luxuriously furnished bedroom suites, three bars, three restaurant areas, and spa facilities. You can also check how perfect it is for corporate rethreaths, weeding parties, private parties and thematic events at their website.
