16 Aug Friday Favourites- hotel interiors
This week I am sharing with you some of my absolute favourite hotel interiors, from around the globe.
I hope that you enjoy this visual feast- do you have a favourite hotel that you admire, or that you have stayed at? I would love to hear from you! Share yours with me in the comments below…
Sant Francesc Hotel Singular in Palma de Mallorca
I am very lucky to have stayed in this stunning hotel in the heart of the historic center of Palma of Majorca, Spain. The hotel building dates back to 1860 and the majority of the building’s historic features including the stable, main stairway, well and watchtower have been preserved impeccably.
The Hotel is a former Mallorcan mansion that now offers guests a warm and welcoming place to stay. Each room features unique characteristics and the attention to detail is impeccable.
Sleek and contemporary furniture have been added to enhance the interior, without distracting you from the architectural features, as well as the impressive art collection that the hotel displays.
Relais Christine, Paris
This stunning, luxurious boutique hotel is located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. I absolutely loved our stay here, there are so many inviting, cosy lounge areas with fireplaces to unwind and take in all of the beautiful details of this hotel.
The rooms are exquisitely detailed and perfect for a romantic stay in Paris. A hotel rich in history, there are many areas to visit, including the large private garden at the rear of the hotel.
Hotel Seven Rooms Villadorata, Noto, (Sicily) Italy
Listed by the ADSI (Italian Association of Historic Houses), Hotel Seven Rooms is housed in Nicolaci Palace, which was the residence of the illustrious Villadorata princely family for centuries.
The hotel has been beautifully restored, preserving the distinct atmosphere and charm of the 18th-century residence. On my stay here, I was in awe of the stunning details and antique furniture pieces, it really was a special stay.
The Crosby New York
This colourful, art-filled hotel is located in downtown Soho, New York and is designed by one of my favourites, Kit Kemp.
Kit Kemp believes that art should be celebrated, therefore, appear all throughout the hotel, rather than hidden in the rooms. So, at the Crosby Street Hotel, you will notice a colourful and interesting array of artworks and sculptures throughout.
I also admire the way the Kit is so bold and confident with colour and textile choices, what some designers may shy away from, she has the ability to go to new levels with and it really stands out as her signature look.
Mykonos Blue, Mykonos Greece
This stunning, Greek hotel is set overlooking the world-famous beach at Psarou. The bungalows are traditionally whitewashed and are minimalistic, yet very Greek style, with lots of neutrals, textures and tonal depth. All of this is set off with the gorgeous blue accents, really making sure you know you’re in Greece!
This hotel is luxurious, traditional and exceptionally beautiful.
Cotton House in Barcelona
The former headquarters of the Association of Cotton House Manufacturers, Cotton House is a unique and historic building that has been transformed into a boutique hotel, containing 83 rooms and suites.
If you have read my blog for a while, or have followed me on Instagram, you will be aware of my love for stunning staircases. The Cotton Hotel features two original stairways, one grand marble one, as well as a spiral staircase that was built in the 50’s. It received much design acclaim, as it has been suspended from the ceiling, rather than the floor, which means it is floating.
The amazing suites feature high, panelled ceilings and decorative moldings, as well as some highly detailed parquetry work that dates back to the 19th century.
The Saxon is located in Johannesburg South Africa and is a tranquil retreat, set in Sandhurst, which is tree-lined and beautiful. This hotel is the perfect combination of history, African culture and luxury.
The Saxon also houses a magnificent art collection, which can be admired throughout the grounds. The sweeping staircase that lures you into the foyer definitely sets high expectations and the rest of the hotel interiors do not disappoint.
