Take home more than a suitcase of memories this holiday by stealing some style from your favourite hotel bathroom instead...
The Arts Club Mayfair, London
The Arts Club, the private member’s club established by Charles Dickens in 1863, has 16 rooms and suites in its Mayfair townhouse. The Art Deco bathrooms, by London design house Sagrada, feature striking walnut doors and have been designed with bronze fittings and accessories from Cristal et Bronze, Calacatta Oro marble floorings and freestanding cast iron bathtubs from Catchpole & Rye.
Claridge’s Mayfair, London
This bathroom is part of a Claridge’s suite designed by British designer David Linley to reflect the Victorian and Art Deco periods that have shaped this famous hotel’s history. As well as this grand bathroom with original double black marble vanities and bath, the suite features an entrance hall, separate sitting room and the services of a personal butler for the duration of your stay.
The Cartshed Wilderness Reserve, Suffolk
Wilderness Reserve’s 4,500 acres has been developed by Foxton’s founder Jon Hunt, who has planted more than 800,000 trees, put in lakes and meadows and turned existing houses on the private estate into luxury accommodation. This welcoming bathroom, with its luxurious copper bathtub, original exposed beams and colour pop upholstered chair, is in The Cartshed, a timber-framed barn built in the 19th century.
The Hoxton Herengracht, Amsterdam
The Hoxton’s only hotel on the continent is made up of five canal houses. Featuring 111 rooms in a variety of sizes from ‘shoe box’ to ‘roomy’, local design firm Nicemakers is responsible for the eclectic look, which was inspired by the history of the building – home to the city’s mayor for generations – and the surrounding area. The municipal heritage is given a stylish twist in the bathroom, with creatively positioned metro tiles and snaking copper pipes.
