Some of the world’s greatest interior design can be found in hotels across the globe. That is certainly true for L’Hotel Marrakech in Morocco, designed by Jasper Conran who also designed several dresses for the late Princess Diana and finally had the opportunity to fulfill his dream of designing a hotel with L’Hotel Marrakech.
The riad offers five suites that each have their own unique flavor. The entire place is stunning, not overlooking a single detail from the luxurious, rich textiles to the grand feeling of each space. Every room is bursting with charm and character in an elegant, comfortable way.

Hotels offer some of the most unique and interesting design inspiration in the world. Some of my favorites are overseas in Europe because of the fabulous history in the cities and architecture. I recently discovered a particularly inspiring hotel in Paris aptly called the Hotel Panache. The designer, Dorothee Meilichzon, was inspired by the neighborhood and the architecture of the building, leading her to incorporate a lot of angles in the interior.
The result is a fantastic mixture of shapes and textures that come together to create a glamorous, mid-century modern experience. It’s inspiring to see the intentional way she used geometric shapes and lines to create interest, as well as how she brilliantly mixed different textures and colors for a dramatic yet elegant result. The entire hotel is something special.

Dark wood floors in a herringbone pattern and beautiful geometric tiles make even the floor a compelling part of the design.

How captivating is that bookcase? Love how it looks like it is on fire.
Several different textures come together in harmony to create a layered, visually interesting yet very cohesive space.
Even the ceiling is special with a high-gloss, reflective white finish.
The rooms are more subdued with a relaxing grey palette but the shapes and beautiful textures continue.
An angular mirror is contrasted by the round chandelier and again by the clean color blocking on the walls.
What a fabulous hotel!
Supermodel Karlie Kloss recently had the pleasure of staying rent-free in an incredible AirBnB mansion in Beverly Hills, located just moments away from the Sunset Strip. The $10 million mansion is as fashionable as it is spacious with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, not to mention two living rooms and a large pool. The home is definitely perfect for entertaining.
As far as style goes, the palette is mostly black and white with modern decor. While the decor is simple and minimalist, it has a lavish flair to it that makes it the perfect home away from home for a New York-based supermodel.

Hotels offer some of the best design inspiration, especially boutique hotels. The Hotel Mono in Singapore is a great example of this. Located in Singapore’s Chinatown and converted from six historic shop houses, Hotel Mono adopted a strict black and white color palette that makes it striking and unique and a must-see for travelers and design enthusiasts alike.
The hotel skillfully mixes modern elements with Rococco-era features original to the building. The result is a design full of compelling contrasts: black and white, old and new. Every room is unique but sticks to the modern black and white theme.
This hotel tour is full of inspiration on how to use a monochromatic color scheme in a way that is stylish and eye-catching.
Hotel Mono Tour
Right from the moment you walk up to Hotel Mono, its black and white color scheme is on full display with an amazing facade that instantly catches your eye.
In the foyer, everything is strictly minimalist but still feels creative thanks to the bold way in which the designers used contrast and shapes to create something visually compelling.
In one of the suites, black, white, and gray create a dynamic look with a striking combination of shades and textures, including a beautiful dark gray wood floor and black metal bars cutting through the ceiling to offer some interesting lines.
Though the bathroom is narrow, it feels large because of the long mirror and beautiful elements. The way the tile extends across the entire wall and into the shower, for example, lengthens the space while the white opens it up.
Black metal bars serve as geometric art on the stark white walls and is mimicked in the black throw over the bed and minimalist black desk and chair.
Another angle in the foyer shows the incredible use of shapes, color blocking, and textures. The shiny tile floor, for example, is set apart from the matte white walls.
Such a cool place!
