I remember the first time I stayed in a nice hotel. It was on a family trip to Seattle and for some reason my parents splurged on a great hotel room… I think us kids even got our own room to share that adjoined our parents’ room. The place had a massive atrium, pool facilities and it was simply a big step up from the usual rooms we stayed in.
I LOVED that trip and since then I love staying in hotels, especially luxury ones (doesn’t happen all that often). I have as much fun checking out luxury hotel rooms as I do spectacular interior design. T
Sometimes a hotel room is merely a place to sleep, and sometimes it’s a major part of what makes travel special. Whether it’s a quick stop on the highway or the destination itself, your stay in a hotel can range from something you tolerate for a few hours, to an experience that rejuvenates and inspires you. Today we are focusing on the latter.
Looking through design books or studying the styles of your friends’ and neighbors’ homes can only get you so far in the quest for fresh ideas. At certain times, you must be influenced by that which you have not set out in search of. Happenstance can unexpectedly land you in a place where ideas are born. This space could be the jumping-off point for your next project, your dream room.
While we typically focus on residential homes, this gallery is a collection of fabulous hotel rooms we found to inspire your home design as well as to give you a few minutes of a mental vacation to a swanky hotel in a location of your choosing.
