The Prince Hotel :: Melbourne, Australia

When I am thinking of an urban escape and a room with iconic original furniture, natural textures, soft hues and a great use of natural light, I always think of the rooms at The Prince Hotel in Melbourne. The Prince is a luxury boutique hotel with 40 unique rooms, located in the heart of St Kilda and a stones throw from the beach and a great selection of restaurants.

Their design philosophy is an eclectic mix of art, textures, fabrics, scuplture and designer furniture. If you wish to know what the original Swan and Egg chair by the designer Arne Jacobsen is like then this is the place to try it out.
This hotel feels like a home. What I love about the living room and bedroom designs are the use of a soft neutral palette combined with natural textures and the use of rattan and raw timber. The use of natural day light also creates a a fantastic atmosphere.
The bathroom design ideas are very simple with the use of small mosaic tiles, cray pots lights, white marble and a clever use of natural day light.
The final touches belong to the spa area and the outside dining area surrounded by a walled herb garden.
Hope this gives you some ideas for when you are next in Melbourne.
Have a great weekend,

  2. Hi Lisa. Well I have to say, I think I'd be leaving the kids home if I chose to stay here. That way I could really relax and enjoy the whle experience :o)
    btw, the mirror in my living room was an ebay purchase from Sydney. Glad you like it. I have more than my share of mirrors but this one would have to be one of my favourites.


Thanks for your thoughts. I read every comment and appreciate your feedback.
Have fun, Lisa
