Just outside Gardiner—a mere 90 minutes north of New York City—is Wildflower Farms, a new locale by Auberge Resorts in the Hudson Valley.

Instead of focusing on the region’s many picturesque towns, this hotel situated within 140 acres of bucolic farm fields is an invitation to reconnect with nature. Cozy cabins and cottages offering direct access to the surrounding greens, as well as farming and foraging experiences and wellness amenities, make the most of the rich scenery.

As for the interiors, design firm Ward + Gray, who worked in collaboration with Electric Bower for the establishment’s architecture, chose to emulate the setting with a dynamic suite of materials and finishes.

“We were particularly inspired by foliage in the fall, when the landscape becomes saturated with burgundies, yellows and deep greens,” says Christie Ward, principal at Ward + Gray. “We knew we wanted to draw from the existing palette of the property throughout the interiors to create a harmonious sense of place.”
