My friend Amy Abbott–a super stylish, no-nonsense girl who can still stick her head above the clouds enough to properly appreciate the art of storybook-chic–just returned from Fischerhude, a quaint German village with thatched-roof cottages, wooden bridges and wonderful cafes. She stayed in a one-room b&b above a shop, chock full of pretty vintage things (“Everything Anthropologie wants to be,” says Amy). And it’s the stuff of fairy tales.
“It’s like staying with an impossibly hip sister whose design aesthetic is an awesome combo of chic, cozy and charming,” says Amy. Owner Heike Mörschel lives directly above the first-floor shop, Landlust, and the b&b is located on the top floor. She delivers breakfast, which includes a different delicious tea each day. “It’s the kind of place to go for if you are seeking quiet and inspiration,” says Amy, who was doing just that. And the town? “The perfect place to relax, take in the galleries, shop (it’s a bit of an artist colony), go for walks, and have cake and coffee.”
