I saw this hotel mentioned in Boston Home and quickly went online to see what all the fuss was about. The Rough Luxe Hotel in London is a new concept from designer Rabih Hage, whose portfolio holds a bevy of sleek, modern spaces. It seems Mr. Hage has had a change of heart- as the Rough Luxe is niether of those things, typically. Originally a townhome, this non-descript building was undergoing major renovations when a stroke of genius hit. While peeling back the layers of old wallpaper and paint on the walls, Mr. Hage fell in love with the look of the textured, desconstructed appearance they gave and used that for the basis of the design concept. Not that everything in this hotel is rough, he plays against the textured, old walls and woodwork with sleeker furniture and fabrics and pops of modern art and of course, modernized the bathrooms. But I really love the mix of the two styles and the tension they create when used together in the same space. What do you think?
