Interiors are light, cool and calm with just a hint of retro charm in the detailing, here a brass lamp and mirror, there an illustrated book of matches. Beds are designed with a deep sleep spell, a place to refresh. Bathrooms feature an eclectic display of Italian tiles, otherwise opulent interiors are on view in a heavyweight copy of Mondadori’s Cabana, on your book shelf.

“Hotels are like people. If they have a character and a point of view, you connect. If they’re just pretty girls with nothing to say, you don’t.”
