room service

When I went to Madrid this Spring I was in awe of the hotel we stayed at (hotel alicia) and it was the first time I realized how inspiring hotels can be for residential interior design. And just in case you need a few reasons why...

Completely agree and have often used hotel references in my own designs.

There are some truly fabulous hotels out there to get design references from. A very small Inn in Napa that I went to on my honeymoon had a big influence when we moved home 7 yrs ago.

What gorgeous images to start my morning and yes, hotels can be great inspiration. I love a great spa bathroom!!

I work in the hotel industry and get to see first-hand how hotel design can influence home design...the good and the bad! I also get to see when hotel design looks great but in a real-world situation falls flat for every-day use. I love that first photo and especially love that side table. I have a hankering to take it on as a project this weekend!

Stunning! Thank you for sharing!
The treatment behind the bed in the second picture is intriguing . . . any idea what it is?
Best,

I just recently finished a little stint I took through Europe, and have found that many hotels are very inspirational for home designers. The idea being, I believe, that they actually have to create comfy, cozy, and functional rooms out of necessity. Otherwise, the hotel would fail to be frequented. I do love the photo of the bed with the patterned design on the wall above it.

I love the white furniture and the room with the big white bed. This inspires me to repaint my room.

I have always been obsessed with hotels for that very reason. Hotel Le A (http://tinyurl.com/3fn6kus) is my most recent obsession.

Love the room. This doesn't look like a hotel for me, it looks like a house, for real. Very nice accommodation you had there.

Decorating wall with photographs, is superb idea to hide painting mistakes. I also done same work in dining room, I shared your idea in my personal blog with your name.
