Hotel Interiors to Inspire Youby Joy Pecknold
All this time inside is giving us ideas, interior design ideas. Softer linens, comfier chairs, richer colours—that’s what we’re craving. Designed by some of the greatest creative minds, hotels have always been an endless source of inspiration. Whether your aesthetic is energizing brights or calming neutrals, there’s a hotel room to reference. Let your mood board begin here.
The Dwell Hotel
With each suite wildly different, downtown Chattanooga’s The Dwell Hotel takes late ’60s style and cleverly elevates it. Time to get grandma’s tangerine tufted club chairs out of storage—they’re cool again.
Santa Monica Proper Hotel
Count on renowned designer Kelly Wearstler to inject personality into muted tones. She employs an eclectic mix of them at Santa Monica Proper Hotel. Suddenly we want an arched fabric headboard.
El Fenn doesn’t do plain white walls. Rooms in this Marrakech hideaway are painted in rich hues—deep blue, turquoise, turmeric—textured, or both, to play off other pops of color and wood antiques.
Cour des Vosges
Masterfully balancing feminine and masculine energies, Cour des Vosges, in the Marais district, marries pastel velvets, stainless steel, straight lines and soft curves. No wonder it’s a 2020 Kiwi Collection Hotel Awards winner.
Galleria Vik Milano
Around the corner from the Duomo, Galleria Vik Milano is all about art and employs delightfully different techniques in each of its one-of-a-kind rooms, including bright mosaics, romantic frescos and abstract wallpapers.
White Exclusive Suites & Villas
Textural pieces get noticed against the simplicity of all white at White Exclusive Suites & Villas in the Azores. Their macramé wall hangings knotted onto branches are a DIY waiting to happen.
Loaded with greenery from floor to ceiling, it’s always springtime in the aptly-named Treehouse London in the Marylebone district. The more plants, the merrier—they’re known to boost mood and purify the air.
Bring Tulum beach vibes home by taking a page from Nomade. Layers of subtle, sandblasted shades, textural pieces and casual, lower-profile furnishings have an immediate calming effect.
Faena Hotel Miami Beach
Are 10 faux animal print pillows, gold lamps and a grand piano too much? Faena Hotel Miami Beach says no, inspiring us to go wild and incorporate a little Miami heat into our homes. We can’t all be minimalists.
