Looking for harbor views in Hong Kong? The Peninsula Hong Kong has unveiled newly renovated guestrooms in the property’s Peninsula Tower. Eventually, the HK$450 million project will encompass all 300 of the hotel’s rooms, with the rooms in the Original Building to be unveiled in April 2013 in time for the hotel’s 85th anniversary celebrations.
The new design concept, conceived by an in-house design team and assisted by Gettys as the executive interior design firm, has a warm, neutral palette of cream, bone, caramel, walnut, and dark chocolate. Detailing includes stitching on the leather-finish wardrobe and wall panels and vintage travel trunk-inspired drawer handles. Highly-glossed burl wood cabinetry, screen doors, chairs and sofa detailing frames the walls and doors.
Every guestroom will have freeform art installations inspired by Chinese ink paintings and depicting details found in flora and fauna, three-dimensional curvilinear metal blossoms, leaves and branches made of laser-cut bronze-lacquered stainless steel and soft furnishings inspired by calligraphic floral design.
