Stay

Brooklyn Arts HotelMelbourne, Australia

This laid-back artist's haven is right at home in Melbourne’s bohemian enclave of Fitzroy. Set in an old Victorian mansion, it’s an eclectic combination of op-shop and gran’s house, with each of the seven rooms given a warm touch by owner Maggie Fooke, herself an artist and a long-time Fitzroyal.

Connect with fellow creatives in one of the many cosy sitting nooks throughout the house and garden. Admire the charming pieces of original and found art decorating the walls, or – if you like – you’re welcome to add to the collection.
