It's All Material: Travel

Jodi Finer

22 April 2021


As we begin to come up for air after over a year of sheltering in place, I think we’re all beginning to dip our toes back into the waters of travel. For me, my mindset remains close. I’m looking for hyper-local getaways and drivable escapes to satisfy my travel bug and give my family a much-needed change of scenery. We’ve highlighted a few of our contract collections here at S. Harris, and I’ve pulled together some of my recent favorite hospitality spots that inspire my sensibilities. Upon reflecting on inspiring spaces of now, I couldn’t help but include at least one ultra-dreamy locale which requires multiple forms of transportation to reach.Jodi Finer, S.

Carlton Landing


Big Dirty Dancing vibes in this master-planned resort town complete with nature trails, boat docks and loads of quaint architecture. Just under a 2-hour drive from Tulsa, this laid-back town is perfect for families and quick getaways to escape the city. Centered around Quaker-style-meets-West-Indies bungalows that dot the perimeter of a connective boardwalk, Carlton Landing gives the feeling of instant community, which is something we’ve all been craving.




The Spa at Camelback Inn


Though creeping into pretty lengthy road trip territory, sitting poolside at the Spa at Camelback Inn is more than worth it. Akin to stepping into a Georgia O’Keeffe painting—terracotta mountains collide with bright blue morning skies and endless-shades-of-pink sunsets—the secluded mountainside escape is the perfect destination for tranquility and creative rejuvenation.



La Tertulia


Authentic Mexican cuisine, homemade tortillas and artisanal margaritas—sounds like the perfect (indulgent) night out to me! Thanks to James Beard Award Winning chef Kevin Nashan, Tulsans can enjoy this festive scene any night of the week. Aside from the delicious fare, the traditional adobe architecture of simple textured walls mixed with contrasting iron details, natural wood accents and Mexican textile motifs are just as spectacular.




The Blake Hotel


Nestled in the northern, high desert region of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains is the vibrant town of Taos. A must-not-miss in this tony town is the iconic Blake Hotel designed by local design firm Los Griegos Studio, who specialize in giving rustic interiors a distinctly modern edge. Whether you’re there to ski the incredible mountain range or just pop into the storied shops around town, there’s an authenticity about this town that’s felt everywhere you go.



Six Senses


The re-emergence of humanity as we begin to come together again, has my mind drifting to this life-altering experience: The Six Sense Bhutan. Carved Into the Himalayan mountains, this holy property comprises five lodges Thimphu, Paro, and Punakha, Gangtey, and Bumthang that are scattered across the Kingdom. The monastic spaces, though sparse, are warm, tactile and Inviting, and move you to a position of pause and think. Mandatory retreats? Who's with me?
