The One Room Hotel at London Design Week

The following pictures are a great example of beautiful interior design; they are from the The One Room Hotel, the new micro mini boutique hotel that opened it’s doors in the very trendy Shoreditch.  The creators; James Russell & Hannah Plumb used London Design week to showcase their new project (furniture, lighting, interiors) and had their first guest staying at the hotel after the exhibition drew to a close.

The hotel consisted of ‘one bedroom’ along with a small bathroom and a little kitchen  area.  All the furniture was custom built to fit the space and consisted of beautiful reclaimed pieces of metal and woonden furniture that had been lovingly brought back to life by the talented couple.  The chest of draws was crafted using an old metal frame and the drawers were made from vintage suitcases that had been cut in half; very cool.   The soft furnishings were textured and sumptuous; almost with a feel of The White Company or Kelly Hoppen Home but a little more rustic.  The paint palette was a mixture of earthly warm greys & creams topped of with the odd bunch of vintage looking hydrangeas.  The whole look was very cosy and organic.  I think it was really well constructed and when you stepped inside the space, it didn’t feel cramped or claustrophobic.  To view more of Jamesplumb’s projects, visit the following website.  The One Room Hotel by JAMESPLUMB, photo by Gisela Torres
