Making it shine: Hotel Park Royal Palace Vienna
Following the call for nominations for the 2011 AIT Hotel Application Awards that were presented at this year’s Heimtextil, Bressanone-based design office ra.be interior design received the prize for best hotel room with the new Hotel Park Royal Palace Vienna. When it comes to textile interior decorating, the room captivates with opulent and enchanting flooring and window fabrics.“We paid a lot of attention to creating more space in the room and placing the closet next to the luggage stand so guests don’t have to walk back and forth between the room and the wardrobe. We also wanted the closet to be wall-mounted and illuminated from below to give the room a lighter feeling,” says Bea Mitterhofer, the interior designer at ra.be interior design, who specialises in hotel and wellness properties. Bea Mitterhofer emphasises the sleek elegance that they wanted the standard room to exude.
When it came to colours, she selected light shades of beige and grey, and the flooring and window fabrics got an added dose of opulence as a nod to the noble neighbour, Schönbrunn Palace. A lovely and exciting juxtaposition: to complement the refined sleek appeal of the room design, the designer chose gleaming loop pile for the floor and shimmering organza fabric for the windows. The colour scheme also echoes the facade of the hotel. Since 4 October 2011, the Hotel Park Royal Palace Vienna shines with a band of golden panels that also provide shade from the sun. The gleaming golden hue ties the whole hotel together like a yellow ribbon, finishing in a golden pillow on the beds of the standard rooms, penned by ra.be interior design. Certain to leave guests beaming.
