New York City has some of the most stylish hotels in the world, rich with history and character. Touring them can be an inspiring experience from a design perspective, as there is always something fresh and unexpected to discover.
One I came across recently is The Marlton Hotel. While it isn’t as flashy as some of the other boutique hotels in cities like NYC, it has its own unique quality that puts a spin on traditional decor with a modern but elegant vibe. There are some unexpected elements that really elevate the style.
This hotel is charming, sophisticated, and has a special brand of character that is completely unique to it. It shows us that you don’t necessarily have to make huge statements to give a space its own unique flair.
The restaurant is sophisticated with rich wood surfaces and green accents to give it an earthy elegance.
The bar continues with the wood in the form of paneling, this time accenting it with a deep red. Colorful paintings and modern light fixtures give it a unique flair.
The modern light fixtures continue into other areas of the hotel, from sitting areas to the suites themselves. These modern touches juxtapose nicely with the traditional backdrop.
A champagne colored sofa and green curtains are soothing, elegant accents for this suite.
The detail in the wall panels is subtle but beautiful. By keeping everything simple, the suite feels like a calming retreat.
Beauty bulbs give the bathroom a nice vintage flair that compliments the other gold fixtures in the bathroom.
Black and white subway tile and marble are some of the most classic choices for a bathroom. They work really well in this suite to bring in the vintage flair while still maintaining a modern sensibility.
This hotel tour is a great example of how to incorporate subtle, modern touches onto a traditional palette to create something unique. It’s all about finding the right balance.
