Falling in love with a city can happen on far flung holidays or right on home ground. Is it possible to translate an exciting city vibe into an interior space? Is it feasible to design a master bedroom that conveys the city you’re passionate about without it becoming over themed or childish? The designer of these three city themed bedrooms proves it can be done. Visualised by Ivan Jakovlev, these three hotel suites also include kitchen and dining spaces that follow on from bedrooms with themes of Paris, Geneva and Amsterdam. All achieved without the presence of a single picture postcard or souvenir snow globe in sight.
Gallery for Designing City Themed Bedrooms: Inspiration From 3 Hotel Suites
On the other side of a skyscraping bookcase, a small dining area is styled like a bijou Parisian cafe, with illustrations of cafe au lait, baguettes and croissants embellishing the walls. The neat black dining pendant light is the Beat Fat style pendant by Tom Dixon again. | 7 |.
Pendant lights over the bedside tables echo the triangular silhouette of the Eiffel tower. The herringbone pattern beneath the motif is reminiscent of the body of water that resides by the landmark, and also of the towers structure itself. The herringbone pattern is repeated on other volumes around the room and draws another Parisian landmark to mind, the pyramid Louvre with its black framed glass. | 2 |.
In life, the Eiffel tower stands in a hue chosen to complement the Parisian sky, a bronze colour known as ‘Eiffel Tower Brown’. In this bedroom decor, silky Parisian blue bed covers are strewn across a sumptuous bronze brown bed. | 3 |.
The metalwork bedroom pendant light is another reminder of the engineering and art that make up the Parisian landmark. Metal grey herringbone pattern covers the bedroom floor, meeting with water-like veined marble tile. | 4 |.
A fleur de lis wall decal marks the doorway. This classically stylised lily is of course widely used as a decorative design but many Catholic saints of France, especially St. Joseph, are depicted with a lily. | 5 |.
City breaks are full sightseeing and soaking up the style of the city you’re adventuring through. This Parisian themed suite honours the hero piece of the French capital city right off the bat with an Eiffel Tower silhouette applied at the centre of a towering wooden headboard. The large question mark above could represent popping the big question, which is done by scores of lovebirds up at the top every year. | 1 |.
