10th January 2014

The new year always feels like a good time to shake up your routine, and the same is true of a blog. So I wanted to introduce a few new features here – without losing the core of what this blog is about. The people who are interested in reading about property are also just as interested in reading about great design.

Which brings me to today’s International Fridays post – the BOLD Hotel in Munich, which opened last year. Granted, there are lots of fantastic design hotels out there, but this place caught my eye when I spotted it featured on the lovely AARV blog. (AARV’s Frida Liljestrand and Sandra Persson have a great design eye and I’d highly recommend a follow if you aren’t already).

As Liljestrand and Persson point out in their post, this hotel looks more like a cozy home. There are lots of nice design touches, from the brass-finish hanging rails – it doesn’t get more on-trend that this – to the grey-on-grey palette and lovely vintage-style seating.

The hotel was designed by Arnold/Werner and is pitched at the affordable price range of the hotel market. Which I like: affordable, without compromising on cool design aesthetics. I reckon this is one to bookmark.
