Grand hotel entrances urge us to look high and low. We sometimes wonder how to take some of the eye-catching design elements of hotel lobbies back home. The extravagant scale can be hard to visualise in a smaller area, but, several design aspects and techniques used here can apply everywhere.
The lighting in well-designed hotel lobbies are typically unique and brings the space together. The same can be true for any room in the house. And, there are a million ways to do this. You have to combine the right ceiling, task, and floor lightings to illuminate the space in a unique way.
The open floor plans bring higher visibility to the reception areas, cafe, lounge, etc., and this feature can be taken back home as well. The different functionalities of a room should be easily accessible – reading nooks, entertainment areas, dining, casual and formal seating, etc., should all be created in an open fashion and readily available to enjoy as needed. Closed rooms can hide some of the different purposes of the space.
The furniture, patterns, textures, fabric, wall colors, art, and all the accessories in the ones I’ve featured here have been carefully picked, co-ordinated and most likely are innovative. Similarly, in any room, harmony exists when things don’t clash with each other.
The architecture of these buildings does play a huge role in making them what they are. But, the rest can be applied to design a chic, grand, unique, and a beautiful home! Do you agree with me? Hope to have inspired you today!
