Is it really any wonder why the New York Times and Trip Advisor among others have nominated it as one of 2012 best hotels?
So why stripes?
The use of stripes in design and architecture is evident throughout history and as part of many buildings in Europe. Perhaps most iconically are the black and white stripes of the Gothic facade and interior of the Siena Duomo in Italy.
From yesterday's post on the bedrooms, where they are part of the drapery, or as painted stripes on the walls..
or in the Resaturant above with black and white striped arm chairs only accented by a red fringe..
The infusion of color repeats once again as the red stripes return once again upstairs in one of the rooms..
and stripes, both vertical tiled accents on the headboard, or painted bold stripes on the armoire..
on carpeting, pillows or in a combination of polka dots upon stripes playfully juxtaposed against each other.
In case you missed the other posts on this hotel, the first post covered the steep historical use of the tiles throughout this palacete here, or the very revealing before & after shots of the Bar, or all about color from yesterday's post.
Tomorrow: The final look ending with the Mediterranean glam outdoors and Spa! You won't want to miss it!
