The rooms of the new Proper hotel in San Francisco do not have a single wall that would not have been decorated with expressive wallpaper, and the patterns are often bold and colorful. And also carpets, drapery, paintings – the prints here are everywhere. The interior design is again based on the nostalgic retro style, which is presented in a modern and smooth way. We invite you to take a small virtual journey through the rooms of this beautiful hotel!
Retro style itself is quite specific and nowadays not many will like it in its pure form. But if you use it in moderate doses and mix with elements of other styles, you can achieve interesting results. In this bright Stockholm apartment retro details perfectly fitted into rather modern and strict interiors, adding an interesting feature and style. Excellent work of the designer!
The George is a new hotel just 20 km from New York, in the town of Montclair, and this is the first joint project of the famous make-up artist Bobbi Brown and her husband Stephen Plofker. In the early 20th century this building was a private house, then in the 1940s a small hotel, now it is a modern and stylish boutique hotel with a special atmosphere. It offers bright and modern rooms with a retro touch.
Designer Kevin Dumais designed this New York loft in a smooth mid-century style – when forms and pieces of furniture from the middle of the last century are presented in a modern way. Sophistication and restrained elegance are the main characteristics of this apartment in which the young businessman lives with his wife. And yet, the spaces impress with a play of contrasts: bright rooms easily coexist with dramatic interiors in dark colors. First-class work!
Even on 38 sqm it is possible to create a modern, stylish, and most importantly functional interior, and this Polish apartment successfully proves it. This cool small home has a kitchenette, a dining room, a living room and a full bedroom. The design of the rooms was inspired by mid-century style with the addition of modern furniture and decor pieces. In addition, the color scheme is fresh and hip, with turquoise, white and gray making a great combination. Enjoy!
When the architect Laurent Lo Monaco bought an old townhouse in the 20th district of Paris several years ago, it was an abandoned small home with little light and dark narrow rooms. Having completed his studies at an architectural university, Laurent was enthusiastic to make his first project for the future portfolio and to create a bright and comfortable home for himself. The renewed interiors are filled with the spirit of the past: bright colorful furniture in retro style and elements of graphic design intertwined here in a wonderful combination. Bright and stylish!
In 2018, the Sound View hotel on Lond Island will celebrate its 65th anniversary. Although recently the hotel has undergone a thorough alteration, the atmosphere of the middle of the last century still resides here, and the building itself in the New England style of modernism continues to fascinate guests of the town of Greenport. As it is common for any estate by the water, here we have panoramic windows and lots of verandas and balconies – in such places everything is intended to help to enjoy the ocean. Perfect combination of vintage atmosphere and coziness!
Scandinavian style is so popular that designers often mix it with other styles for the sake of experimentation. Often the design Swedish apartments can contain notes of Provence, English, loft and even Japanese styles. But today we have something new – a Scandinavian home, inspired by a beautiful historical style of Art Deco. Such a cool dwelling!
This guest house in the Swiss Alps can be rented for a weekend – in 2015 it was renovated from an old wooden chalet. The interiors are quite unusual – the abundance of wood, typical for such houses, are mixed with elements of retro style, and even floral motifs that can be seen in wallpaper and decor. In total there are 8 bedrooms, 3 living rooms, and several terraces. An interesting feature – every room has a bright bathroom: pink, blue, white, and all of them are decorated in the style of 50’s and 60’s. But the best place, of course, is a veranda overlooking the mountains. Fascinating!
The Hoxton is not a typical hotel chain and opens its hotels only in the most prominent cities within trendy locations. The concept implies beautiful historical buildings, stylish interiors with retro feel and the absence of unnecessary expensive services. We already posted two of their hotels (in London and Amsterdam), and today we are happy to share photos of the new hotel in Paris. It is a beautiful 18th-century building, a progressive 2nd district of Paris and a wonderful design from the best local studios. Enjoy!
