interiors: open for inspection

A bunch of new hotels have opened (or soon will open) all over the globe…here’s 3 of my favourite. Well worth checking out for a little interiors inspiration.


1. W Barcelona. W anything is a good thing. I love this hotel chain. This new one is Western Europe’s first W (33rd all up). Architect Ricardo Bofill designed the building – part of a push to energize the port area of Barcelona. The interiors look rather tame, but terribly tasteful.

It’s the Londoner’s first foray into the US. Kemp has a way with colours and textures – I love the black walls below with that crisp white bed. For more read The Independent’s interview with Kit Kemp here.
