In this post we will cover 11 of the most striking interior design trends that shape up today’s hospitality scene.
From rethinking guestroom configurations to ensuring highly personalized experiences, hotel owners are transforming accommodation units into the highlights of any escape.
The bedroom is typically a refuge or "decompression point" in the home.
And unlike a hotel room that must please many people, your bedroom is the one place that is truly yours and can be a reflection of your taste and design style.
(Their beloved dog Cooper died a few months ago.) Two snow-white peacocks, Octavius and Phaedra, roam the grounds.
Their owners were recently forced to surround a loggia with curtains to prevent the birds from using it as a bathroom. "They're frenemies," Dransfield acknowledges ruefully. Later this year, a white-bronze Lord & Burnham greenhouse, built in 1910 and formerly owned by the King of Morocco, will be reassembled on the property, where it will accompany a kitchen garden, a woodland glade, and a walled Charleston garden.
The interiors invariably became laboratories for their eponymous design studio, which produces small furnishings and high-end bedding and table linens.
"We would change houses as our tastes changed," Ross says. There's enough space here that the rooms can constantly evolve." The decor is steeped in history; many rooms have artifacts from an earlier age of travel and discovery.
A few years ago, John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross found the home they had been searching for—a grand Georgian Revival estate named Cherryfields—a short distance from where they were living in New Jersey's Somerset County. Hyde connected the structures by adding an ample living room and a curving conservatory.
The only problem was that the house was already occupied. "We'd drive by in the morning to see if anybody was up, and drive by at night to see if the lights were on." The owner, a recent widow in her 80s, had lived in the house for nearly half a century and wanted to move to a smaller home. "The building is long and rambling," says Dransfield, "but it's only one room deep, so all the major rooms have light on both north and south sides." Princess hired her friends Sister Parish and Albert Hadley to decorate the interior of Cherryfields in 1963, but little was done to update their patrician style over the following decades.
"But at eightysomething, Albert is still all about making a house modern and keeping it relevant." The living room's windows and French doors were covered with heavy curtains of quilted linen.
