Sometimes magnificent is not an overstatement.
Take Istanbul's The House Hotel for example.
The hotel is in a renovated 1890's mansion and
is adorned with an elegant palette of neutrals
and luxurious finishes. Just take a look at this entrance.
The lounge boasts these handsome Chesterfields
and an architecturally stunning ceiling. Notice
the chandelier; its shows up throughout the hotel.
Perfect details lead you to the rooms. Beautiful parquet floors are featured in the ethereal junior suite.
Scale is key in the bathrooms.
Incredible mouldings punctuate nearly every wall
in the executive suite.
The exposed beams in the penthouse are one of my favorite
features. After all, I do love wood and white.


  1. Wow~ and that shower..... The Chesterfields are my fav's too!

  2. The wonderful vestibule doorway does indeed give a hint of what is to come.
