From art to photography adventures—get into the fall wanderlust spirit

How Brilliant!

The Ojai Valley Inn gets glowing with an enchanting new art installation

The storied Ojai Valley Inn & Spa just unveiled Illume, a romantic composition of 28 wrought-iron lanterns suspended from the branches of the hotel’s 200-year-old oak tree. The lanterns were hand-forged by artist Paul Ferrante and reflect the property’s Spanish Revival style. On Fridays, the resort hosts free pours of Veuve Clicquot in the Champagne lounge beneath the tree. Clink!

 

Viva, Baz Luhrmann!

The auteur’s films inspire a new stage production in Vegas

His movies—Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby—have a style all their own. And now Australian director Baz Luhrmann’s unique visions of history’s greatest love stories are being reimagined on stage at the Palazzo Theatre in Las Vegas. BAZ—Star Crossed Love is a musical medley extravaganza told in a cabaret-like setting, with all the bells, whistles, confetti, and fireworks one might expect from a Baz-Vegas collab. Now we just need Leo to make a guest appearance!

Tuesdays–Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. through February 2017

 

The Big Picture

Learn to shoot like a pro in Mexico

This fall, the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is offering a five-day photography adventure, led by professional photographers Robert Caplin and Peter Lockley, whose work has appeared in the New York Times and National Geographic. The experience includes shoots at secret surf spots in Sayulita, fish markets in La Cruz, and one-on-one editing plus critique. If only all classrooms had views this good.

Border Report

Bunk Up

The team behind San Diego’s Pearl Hotel opens a modern, Airbnb-style retreat in Tijuana

After the success of their Barrio Logan studio rental, San Diego–based LWP Group is set to open their first property south of the border, One Bunk Tijuana, this fall. Housed in the former Hotel Lafayette on Avenida Revolución, the property banks nine rooms, each outfitted with queens, doubles, or bunks and bookable via Airbnb only.

Local architects and interior designers Gracia Studio and Weekend Project helped lead the makeover, which includes modern, Mexican-inspired decor. The lobby sports a single-chair barbershop, while the roof boasts a micro mezcal bar and synthetic turf, perfect for impromptu picnics or movie nights al aire libre above the buzz of Tijuana’s main tourist drag. Oh, yeah: and not a single TV in sight. —Derrik Chinn
