Some of the best interior design inspiration I’ve ever found has been at hotels. Many of them go all out with their aesthetic to provide a unique, beautiful experience to their guests by hiring some of the most talented and creative interior designers in the world. Because of this, they are fantastic places to get inspired by fresh ideas.
The Spectator Hotel in Charleston is one of those hotels that embraced the opportunity to do something spectacular with their design. The hotel took inspiration from the art deco glamour of the 1920s and mixed it with a modern flair to create an experience that is stylish and luxurious. The common areas are rich and swanky, while the rooms are chic and sophisticated.
Enjoy this beautiful hotel tour that is full of great design ideas.
The Spectator Hotel
Elements like black walls, black and white striped end tables, and gold accents create a glamorous, though modern statement in the lobby.
The lounge is cool and sleek with elements inspired by the 1920s, including built-in bookshelves that are lit from the inside.
There is plenty of stylish, though comfortable seating in the lounge divided into several conversation areas. Hotels like this are a great lesson in how to create those areas in your own home.
The blue bed is a beautiful pop of color among the soft, gray backdrop. It creates a bold statement without taking away from the relaxing atmosphere.
A soft taupe on the walls with white accents is clean and classic. The dark wood vanity is a nice touch for a bit of contrast.
Arches are a great way to provide some architectural charm in a simple, timeless way.
A pop of color in the art above the bed is a nice jolt of drama in the otherwise calm, neutral space.
A floral accent wall brings some whimsy and life to the lobby.
Arranging coffee table books in a grid adds character in a streamlined, modern way.
