If you’re thinking about holiday planning then episode four of The Find it. Style it. Podcast is a must listen. Our interior stylist and Find it. Style it. founder Lauren Keenan takes the podcast on the road looking at some of her favourite hotel interiors from around the globe. We think that one of the best parts of holiday planning (or vacation) is finding the right accommodation. Even if you’re spending all day out and about, where you stay still has a huge impact on how you enjoy your holiday. Lauren (the Chief Hotel Selector of the family) confesses she’s a little shallow when it comes to choosing a hotel – it’s all about the look! Because if they get the look right, the great service tends to follow. Hear Lauren and Scott talk about their holiday planning and the favourite hotels they’ve stayed in: @themoanasurfrider in Waikiki, Hawaii for relaxation and @therogerny in New York City, New York for some big city style.

Find out as Lauren goes through her holiday planning and selection process for an upcoming trip to New York City, upstate New York, Ontario in Canada and Los Angeles.

Cool summer camp vibe. @lakehouse_lp – The Lake House at Lake Placid. Contemporary ski chalet. @thestandard – The Standard Hotel at the High Line in NYC. Minimalist meets 70s rock. @avalonhotels – The Avalon Beverley Hills, Los Angeles. Laidback retro glam as designed by @kellywearstler.
