Fabulous Room Friday 04.29.11

I’ve had my eye on the gorgeous Connaught Hotel in London for quite some time now and would love to stay there during a future trip across the pond. The sitting room in “The Apartment” suite is absolutely gorgeous. I love the soaring, beamed ceilings and while I am not usually a blue person, I really love it in this space. Maybe it’s the excitement of the royal wedding. Who knows! There is such a great mix of textures and fabrics from the sumptuous velvet sofa to the beautiful, show-stopping ombré drapes. The piece de resistance might just be the stunning marble fireplace, though. I love the clean, modern lines amongst the more traditional furnishings.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I stayed at the Connaught last fall. It was exquisite. The regular rooms are just as stunning as the suites. The Connaught bar is my favorite place on Earth! Plus, Louboutin is right next door…perfection:)

  2. Paloma, I love the grays and periwinkle tones in this room. And thank you for not posting on the Royal Wedding just yet. Not to be snarky, because it’s lovely. I’m just glad you posted on your traditional schedule!

  3. I have always waned to stay there. Years ago you used to need recommendations from other customers to be able to – I’m sure that’s not the case any more!! This room is absolutely stunning!!

  4. I love those ombre drapes! The cool color scheme is very soothing yet glamorous. I also really like the round mirror above the mantle, such a lovely art deco touch.
