Honor & Folly in Corktown
We had a delightful stay at Honor & Folly. Here’s a snippet from their website:
“A small-scale, design-focused Detroit inn, Honor & Folly is reminiscent of the way folks used to travel: a few beds above the village pub or restaurant with a hearty breakfast. You’ll be immersed in the oldest neighborhood of Detroit – smack in the middle of one of the most thriving blocks in the city. You’ll sit next to locals at the bar downstairs—or the coffee shop—and learn about the city from people who live here. Detroiters are a pretty friendly lot. There’s plenty to absorb inside, too. Decorated with Detroit and Midwest-made goods (much of which is also for sale), the space tells a story about the designers, artists and artisans who helped bring it to life.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself, although I will add that the juxtaposition of granny/farmhouse furnishings with modern touches (art, lighting) is a very clever mix of old and new – a comfortable balance of the familiar with the edgy.
