Das Stue Hotel, newly opened design hotel in Berlin, in December 2012.
When I received the press release and visited their website, the first image I encountered was the gorgeous and classical look of its lobby. To be honest, I was a little bit overwhelmed and hesitated to list the hotel on this site as I usually prefer simple and natural style.
However, the moment I saw one of the pictures of their guest rooms, I changed my mind.
In contrast to glamorously glittering public spaces, the guest room interior is quite simple. What I loved most is the bright colored fabric as a charming accent on the neutral colored interior. It makes the simplicity of interior stand out more. I think It also serves as a good example of how to use fabric to get a refreshed look of your room.
[A little bit about the hotel]

  • The building was originally constructed from 1938 to 1940 as the Royal Danish embassy by Johann Emil Schmidt.

  • The Das Stue's mixture of old and new architecture was created by German firm, AXTHELM ARCHITECTS.
