De luxe in a rough version

There is simply nothing else like Rough Luxe Boutique Hotel. A perfect combination of art and design. Luxurious and at the same time rough and simple interior. A place where old meets the modern, contemporary artworks are mixed with old elements. A beautiful dissonance of contradicting elements create beautiful frame for not only for very demanding connoisseurs, but also people who value comfort and hospitality. Not only for “consumers”, but for people who value time for reflection and intellectual activities. Individuals who like to experience life in a different way, find pleasure in art, nature, simple things, culture. 

This unique place was designed in 2008 by Rabih Hage, well known architect, interior designer and curator. Like most of boutique hotels it’s placed in an old Georgian building in London, which was renewed, but many elements have been preserved. Peeling paints, old floor and cracking staircase give a shabby-chic touch to the place.

I am absolutely adore this place. I like bare walls combined with colorful fabrics and art pieces, plain furniture and sophisticated look, half luxurious and half rough. I will definitely visit this unique place during my next trip to London.
