Home Away From Home: Kimber Modern

If you ever find yourself in Austin, TX, look no further than Kimber Modern for a contemporary crash pad during your stay. Designed by Burton Baldridge Architects, the hotel has a clean-lined, low-slung design and is set on a multileveled environment that is never more than one story from the ground. The interior is furnished with high-design pieces by the likes of Offi, Eames, Philippe Starck, Arne Jacobsen, and more. Its cool palette has a surprisingly inviting warmth that will give you the feeling of stepping into a relaxing spa. The rooms are modern and minimal and have an overwhelming sense of "clean" — a far cry from the cringe-inducing patterned carpets of your average American hotel. Beyond that, you'll rest well during your escape on 500 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and stay in touch with WiFi throughout. See more photos when you read more.
