#2 GET INSPIRED BY THE WORLD WIDE ACE!!

READY FOR TAKE OFF!!!! SECOND DESTINATION IS LONDON!!:)

Today Ill give you a tour at the ACE-Hotel in LONDON, Shoreditch, and pin out all the fab details that might inspire you in your own home-decor-projects!

As in NY, ACE hotel in London offers rooms from standard to suite – again all of them decorated to minor details – if you have seen the post yesterday from New York, I find that ACE in London has a bit softer look and maybe not as much edge as you´ll find in New York! Nevertheless casual, cool and made to perfection!

Again the furnitures at ACE Hotel are a mix of classic design and vintage and a mix of materials (leather, steel, textile, wood etc.), I really like the leather couch and the wooden tables but I do miss some more HIGHLIGHTING art! The black and white wall is casual and contemporary, but if you ask me I would have chosen another plaid for the bed, more colorful! (even though the colors compliment each other – i find it a bit boring)! OR keep the plaid and make an ARTSY wall!

The furnitures are awesome – a great mix of soft textile, steel, industrial and leather WOW! But, the carpet itches my eyes – why not make a cool epoxy floor?! 😉 OR maybe instead of doing artwork let the focus in the floor and do a crazy piece of art! (Hmm and I miss ceiling-deco, that goes for both NY and London, gotta make a post on ceilings soooon)

OH WELL, if you invite me Ill go – SURE this hotel is awesome!! Don’t you think? Hey, which one would you prefer – INTERIORWISE? Please comment…

#1 GET INSPIRED BY THE WORLDWIDE ACE!

READY FOR TAKE OFF!!!! FIRST DESTINATION IS THE BIG APPLE!!:)

Today Ill give you a tour at the ACE-Hotel in New York, midtown Manhattan, and pin out all the fab details that might inspire you in your own home-decor-projects!

This unique hotel offers everything from bunk beds to loft suites and I promise you, you won’t be disappointed – all the rooms are decorated to minor details and all of them has their own piece of artwork – may be a painting, a print, textile you name it! BUT if you are into french romance don’t choose ACE – its casual, its modern, its cool and classic!

How about a night in here!??

I´ve picked four ways to transform your wall inspired by ACE – GO for your favorite textile (this one is an artwork by Ryder Robinson), but it could be any kind of awesome textile – or optional make a print on a piece of full colored textile hang it on your wall – maybe from the ceiling by industrial wires!

Another option is to do your own artwork – make a collection (place them close together or overlap) of any kind of poster, record covers – anything goes! Paint directly on the wall or hire a graffiti painter OR let your kids play 🙂 Personally I get really inspired by street art! A good idea is to keep huge artwork to one place (one wall) and let it shine in the room – if you scatter prints, posters or artpieces around the room it might look messy – make a decorative sample!

The furnitures at ACE Hotel are a mix of classic design and vintage – all of them perfectly compliment each other and add a casual but cozy atmosphere! Rule number ONE – mix old and new, mix materials (leather, steel, textile, wood etc.), but be careful with the colors! Go for colors that compliment each other – it adds a more relaxed atmosphere where you actually feel at home – a no go is to go all in on the same material, tight and clean, and no colors!

I wanna go RIGHT NOW – HOW ABOUT YOU???? …..
