Urban Cowboy, Brooklyn
What I love about travelling is that the best things are tucked often away from sight, seemingly unassuming until you decide to look a little further. They’re like a reward for being adventurous. Urban Cowboy B&B in Brooklyn is cloistered snugly away in a renovated townhouse in the backstreets of Williamsburg, not far from the neighbourhood’s hipster epicentre. The only thing you’re likely to notice from the street is the cheerful red door, but inside is a whimsical industrial-urban-meets-Wild West aesthetic that’ s surprisingly sophisticated and instantly makes you feel like it’s your own abode. I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot there recently for The Weekend Edition (which you can view here) and fell in love with all the thoughtful intricate details that are scattered throughout the dwelling, including dreamcatchers and bunches of sage, a freestanding clawfoot tub and books on how to survive if you get lost in the woods. If you’re planning a visit to Brooklyn, definitely make this your pied-à-terre (and ask for the cute little cabin out back!).
