Sea view inspiration
The inspiration for the new bedroom suite design was to create spaces that felt homely and inviting for guests. As they have some of the best views in the hotel we didn’t want to include obvious nautical or seaside touches. The focal point of the suite is still the sea view in front of the bath. Allowing the interior to reference the hotel’s location in a more subtle and sophisticated manner, including touches through the curated artwork pieces and photographs on the walls.
To create a home-from-home, various different pieces of furniture, lighting, accessories and artwork were sourced which all work in a cohesive manner, whilst not being identical to each other. A collection. The aspiration is for the suites to have a feeling of individuality, and a different experience for guests, with each room.
The colour and overall scheme palette was used to create a space that feels calm and inviting during the summer months, yet a warm and cosy during the darker winter months.
Suites 1 and 21
Facing directly towards the ocean with baths in the bay window, and a snug lounge area, our sea view suites are our very best rooms in the hotel. Suites 1 and 21.
The new designs mix texture from the timber walls with patterned cushions and vibrant colours. Soft lighting and key pieces of furniture all focus towards the floor to ceiling view of the beach. Suite 21 has retained its roll-top bay-window bath. Suite 1 has two slipper baths.
Take some inspiration from Matt’s design notes and create a similar style at home. Pieces have been sourced from HK Living, Designers Guild, Garden Trading and Nkuku.
Used to bring pattern and texture to the scheme. The back cushion is a dark pink that pulls some of the colour out from the front patterned cushion.
