Ask for any hipster recommendation in Taiwan and for sure, VVG will always be present. The VVG brand is a lifestyle concept that dabs into different industries: Bookstore-VVG Something, Restaurants- VVG Bistro, VVG Action, and VVG Thinking, and they also have an Artsy and DIY Boutique– VVG Chiffon. What a lot of people don’t know is that VVG is also in the hospitality industry- the VVG BB+B, which stands for VVG Boutique Bed and Breakfast. They have 2 rooms- June and Evon, which are both located in a residential building along the Zhong Xiao West Road. What’s super cool about this is that the building is like any old apartments in Taipei- super unassuming- but once you step into the room, you’ll immediately be transported to another world.I stayed in their June Suite for this visit and I LOVED IT SO MUCH!The room has this London Library style with a mix of industrial decorations. Yup, these are real books and you can really read them! With over 1000 titles available, this is definitely a book-lover heaven!Love how they’re super meticulous when it comes to details. Look at this cute puppy doll! Aside from books, there are also hundreds of movies available for viewing. I got so inspired with the ambiance that I rewatched The Notebook that night, haha!Here’s the living room area- spot the cool vintage SMEG refrigerator by the corner!The rooms are designed with lots of antiques and vintage pieces that the interior designer/owner has collected all throughout her travels around the world.Yup, you can take a bath in that ancient copper bathtub…with this view!There’s also a balcony if you want to get a breath of fresh air.Now, back to the room… Love how they were able to elegantly mix white and brown tones together.I think what made this room really beautiful is that they were able to marry vintage + sleek European + hint of Asia in the design output seamlessly.Time to sleep! Zzz…Just below the apartment is VVG Bistro, one of the restaurants under the VVG label. And all VVG BB+B guests get to start their day with a really good brunch in their home resto!Breads and jams to start the meal 🙂I forgot to ask what was this but this welcome drink was the bomb! It was like a hot wine or something and it was really yummy!And… an elegant spread. Lovely plating, yummy food, beautiful setting. Whatelse can you ask for? This hotel is definitely a GEM!
