Take Decorating Inspiration From The World’s Most Stylish Hotels
Hotel style was, at one time in the not-so-distant past, a singular look: crisp, tailored bedding with black piping, a neutral colour scheme, dark modern furniture, few, if any, accessories. The pared-back look meant that walking into a hotel room was like entering a serene escape called “away.”
Now, chic, international hotels are taking a page from Airbnb’s book, making rooms and common areas the opposite of impersonal with layers of quirky details. Spaces look like they came together over time and often include handpicked details such as mismatched textiles, vintage ceramics, record players and stacks of vinyl.
These curated hotel spaces from around the world deliver design lessons for the cool-yet-comfortable vibe so covetable now.
This room’s quiet riot of colors and patterns is inspired by the painterly brushstrokes of this dreamy work of art.
Where: Ham Yard Hotel in London
Our latest color crush is this moody combination of terracotta and navy against cream. It creates the instant warmth and atmosphere that’s so appealing in living rooms. Patterned textiles, and furniture and accents in a mix of wood and leather mean this look never feels cookie-cutter.
Where: Quinta Da Corte in Valença do Douro, Portugal
Arches are having a major moment in design. They look particularly stylish over a bathroom vanity, where they bring Deco glamour to a functional space.
Where: Kimpton Saint George Hotel in Toronto
Hotel designers are masters of getting the most out of tiny spaces. Transform a forgotten closet, entryway or small expanse of wall into a hardworking spot.
Where: Menorca Experimental in Illes Balears, Spain
A coffee bar doubles as a quaint place to catch up on work in between sight seeing and perusing Parisian cafés.
