    Friday's Fetish: designer hotel rooms

    by  • November 19, 2010 • Beautiful boudoirs • 0 Comments

    It’s Friday, it’s cold outside, so obviously I’m daydreaming about holidays to foreign lands. I’ve fixed my sights on the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, because (thanks to Design Milk) I’ve just found a place to stay that’s far from the sterile space of a British budget hotel.

    LLOVE. No, not a typo, but the name of this amazing exhibition/hotel that you can actually stay in! I’ve always wanted to be a performance artist – ok, not strictly true, but this creative collaboration between Japanese and Dutch designers would be the perfect place to launch my career/ sleep in incredible one-of-a-kind surroundings. And unique is definitely the word… just look at these bedrooms!

    Staying in a space with this maxed-out striped effect on the customised wallpaper, floors, and everything in between would be like sleeping inside the lining of a giant Paul Smith suit (I would imagine).

    Bix box, little box… this bedroom is an exact replica of a dilapidated traditional Japanese-style room, only with really comfy looking beds. Take note of the paper screens that form the walls – a great style idea to steal.

    If you love the great outdoors, perhaps this is one for you? Love the coat hangers on the tree branches and the buried bath tub. It’s all a little Midsummer Night’s Dream, the updated version.

    And from one fairytale to another… what’s not to love about this GIANT sculptural bed? Goldilocks has no problems with me saying, this bedroom is juuuusssst right. Ok, where do I book?
