Over the weekend, my husband and I were agonizing over paint colors for the bedroom. I’ve been going back and forth on shades of cream, grays, and greens, but nothing has felt right. Finally, I decided to try a little visualization exercise that I’ve been working on for interiors. (More on that soon!) And low and behold, I think we’ve found a very unexpected color.
Of course, because it’s me, I decided to immediately try and search out an example of what I want before hitting up the paint store, and that’s when I discovered the beautiful, ethereal rooms at Maison de la Luz…
Have I ever mentioned that my first bedroom that I ever got to design (when I was 11) was lilac? But certainly nothing as sophisticated as these walls which I imagine change constantly with the light. More of a gray with a purple undertone, it’s a color I actually usually avoid. I like my gray to be gray. But this? This is a whole other direction.
I sent a few photos to my husband yesterday. He approved. Next step will be finding the paint to match, as this color was custom created for the hotel! I’m sure I’ll have a whole other post on that soon, but for now, let’s talk about the hotel, shall we?
First off, these rooms are absolutely divine. The hotel itself is an Atelier Ace property, which I would never have guessed. Ace Hotels don’t often scream ‘luxury’ to me, but they have certainly turned that around with the Maison de la Luz.
They brought on Studio Shamshiri to help in the design, and I love everything they did. If you take a look at the property’s public spaces, they are bold, eclectic, layered, and maximalist. So to go upstairs to your room and discover this incredibly calming space is a wonderful juxtaposition.
The tile in the bathrooms absolutely slays me. Also, taking a look at the way the paint color plays off of the cream and white in here is helping me visualize it in my own home. I’m not sure it’s the same color or not, but light is tricky like that! I could very well be, even if it looks more of a mauve in this space.
My favorite accents in the spaces are definitely the sofas and rugs. The sofa fabrics pull in a modern granny vibe (I believe the fabrics are both House of Hackney) while the bold golden rugs a touch of modern royalty. That combined with obvious influences like the incredible architecture and details like tasseled curtain drawbacks, bring a sense of history to this space.
As for my own walls, we’ll see how they fare in a color like this, but I can’t wait to try and recreate such a dreamy space.
