With this article, I’m excited to announce the new monthly collaboration with Céline Debray, founder and owner of the inspiring bookshop Sérendipité.ch. Recently selected within the 5 best independent bookstores by the French cultural magazine Les Inrocks, Sérendipité provides readings from all over the world on a large variety of topics, in rare issues, small series and even collectors’ editions. celine_superette_6315

Each month, we’ll prepare a special selection of books and magazines on specific themes, from design to travel, branding and so much more. Thus, we hopefully offer you an endless source of inspiration.

As the summer has just arrived, let’s explore the inside/outside possibilities.

At the time of the year, adventure is calling! While looking to relax far away from the urban hustle and bustle, cabins are a great way to find peace in an extraordinary setting.

Lost in the forest or on lakeshores, these nature retreats have become increasingly popular and there are options for every taste, from rural to architectural, in Europe or over the Atlantic. To slow down and rethink your lifestyle during the summer, treat yourself with an unexpected getaway.

With this June selection, your wanderlust will be satisfied and your next trip probably booked!

Among the reference books on this topic, Cabins invites you to discover breathtaking hideaways.

Céline’s recommendation goes for Cabin porn, must-read book based on a blog that presents a great collection of getaways for nature lovers. The magazine Anthology is also among her favourites thanks to the quality and variety of its content.

For all the travelers and life explorers, it is time to get out there. Let the summer be inspiring and full of discoveries!
