A suite in one of the most luxurious hotels in Sweden, a beauty bar, an in-room cocktail service and a wardrobe filled with designer clothes. Seems to good to be true right? But it isn’t, Hotel Pigalle offers all this and more in their new exclusive Suite Belle. When you book this suite you’ll have access to a wardrobe filled with designer clothes (for men and women), a beauty bar with makeup, perfumes and styling products, a jewelry bar ánd you’ll have access to room service in the form of makeup and hairstyling. But if you think that’s all, think again! Guests will also receive a 4-course dinner, and in-room cocktail service, a 40-minute pesonal training ánd a massage room. Oh and of course on top of all that the room also look absolutely stunning. I think I found heaven!
Hotel Panache is a new design hotel in Paris designed by Dorothée Meilichzon of Chzon. The hotel is located in the Ninth Arrondissement in a 19th-century building with an unusual shape. There are almost no right angles in this building which Dorethée played with very nicely. Dorothée used many geometric shapes in the design of Hotel Panache which gives the hotel a playful and interesting touch. You’ll never know what you’re gonna get. Every room has a unique style with different wallpaper and a Thonet-inspired bedframe. I love the design of this hotel and if you’re going to Paris it will be quite worth the visit. Hotel Panache is quite affordable for a design hotel (rooms that at €130) so it won’t bankrupt you either 😉
Lokal Hotel in Philadelphia is a project by husband and wife – Chad and Courtney Ludeman. As travel ánd design lovers they found that hotel rooms are often the same old boring rooms. To make a change in hotel stays they decided to open Lokal Hotel. The interior of the hotel is mainly designed by one of my favourite designers Percy & Tara from Jersey Ice Cream Co. The loft-like rooms are ideal for short ánd a long-term stay. They have a seperate bedroom, a living room and a stunning (blue) kitchen, so they are more apartments than just a simple hotel room. The rooms are styled with vintage and modern design and the industrial features of the building remain visible (yay!). The hotel will open in april & you can book your stay now on the website of Lokal Hotel.
During the Stockholm Design Week the Lydmar Hotel in Stockholm has launched a newly decorated suite for the international guest. The suite is designed by architect Eva-Lotta Axelsson – founder of Nude Studio. The theme of the suite is ‘World Citizen’ and to create this feeling they choose to decorate it with furniture from B&B Italia. The suite has a luxurious feeling but it also feels a bit like a home. It’s not just an impersonal hotel room, it is a space you can relax in. And if the design isn’t enough to win you over, the suite has also views over the Old Town and the Royal Castle of Stockholm.
Sir Savigny hotel is a new hotel in Berlin created for ‘the modern aristocrat’. The love for design is obvious when you take one glance at one of the 44 rooms in this hotel.

The excellent craftsmanship and beautiful furniture pieces give the rooms a very luxurious atmosphere. Throughout the hotel you will find carefully selected artwork and a well equipped library.

When you think about hostels, great design is probably not something that immediately comes to mind. But nowadays more and more design hostels are opening in the world. I’ve posted a great design hostel in Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago. This stunning hostel is located in the old town of Valencia. The two hostels have something in common because both are big on color! Valencia Lounge Hostel has 11 rooms which are all uniquely styled. The hostel is designed by Masquespacio with the intention of creating a ‘homey’ feeling and the hostel really looks homey and unique. So when you’re going on a trip to Valencia, instead of picking a hotel or airbnb you could just choose the Valencia Lounge Hostel. And otherwise you can get some amazing bedroom and paint ideas from these bright, colorful rooms!
La Granja Ibiza is a rustic members-only retreat situated on a farmstead in the Ibizan countryside.

Each room has a luxury bed and materials of burn wood, burshed and oiled ash, wood, stone and slate. A stay in La Granja Ibiza feels like going back to basics with the beautiful dark colored walls and natural materials but with all the necessary comforts of a present hotel stay.
