Hotels Decked Out in Greenery, Pantone’s Color of the Year

Each year, the Pantone Color Institute meets in a European capital for two days of strenuous deliberation regarding “Color of the Year.” Pantone asserts that color is an integral part of how a culture expresses the prevailing mood of the times. With the selection of greenery as 2017’s color, Pantone has gone for a revitalizing shade, one symbolic of new beginnings and a reconnection with nature. We explore hotels best dressed in the hue.

Photo essay: 36 hours in Amsterdam

Choosing to take a lengthy layover in Amsterdam en route to Kenya is a ‘Dam good idea, I recently discovered. The Venice of the North does more than simply break up the monotony of 20-odd hours on planes and in airports; it winds you down and fills you up. There’s even a Dutch word for the feeling: gezellig. Easy to get around, on foot or by bicycle, the city makes a little time go a long way. Art, sightseeing, genever tasting, Michelin star meals—all in under 36 hours.
