And the Winner of the Details Network "Guinness Storehouse Travel Contest" Is . . .

But open-ended challenges present problems: Where to start when there's no focus? After assessing all the posts published by the members of the Details Network (this contest was open only to our international community of style bloggers), we found a bevy of original approaches: see more

Night at the Museum: Book Your Stay at This 24-Hour Art Hotel

Unlike many big-shot developers, Kentucky-based philanthropists, art collectors, and husband-and-wife team Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson sought only to break even when they founded boutique hotel group 21C Museum Hotels and opened their first property in Louisville in 2006.

Foreign Correspondent: Where to Shop and How to Find the Best Tamales in Mexico City

This week's style report comes to us from Bernardo Lopez Morton, a Mexico City-native and owner of boutique menswear shop 180 Grados. How he got his start: Throughout my junior year at Boston University I worked as a research assistant at the National Bureau of Economic Research. I learned a lot, but it wasn't my thing.
