Hello my friends! I am back from a week of holidays and soon I will share with you my inspirations and findings from my latest vacations here in the series 'From Place To Space'. Today however, I want to take you to London. You know that I was part of this year's BlogTour London organised by Modenus (more to come over the coming days) and we were very lucky to be accommodated in one of London's latest design hotels - the CitizenM Hotel in Southwark. CitizenM Hotel was also one of our fab BlogTour sponsors and hosted us during the London Design Festival.
Design-savvy folks will enjoy every bit of the hotel. The CitizenM hotel is entirely equipped by Vitra so your eye will spot design classics in every single corner. The lobby is an inviting an open space and represents a great melange of a library and book store, lounge, bar and restaurant area. The restaurant itself is a combination of a deli store, bakery and local farmer market and boasts some yummy treats for the guests.
And what about the rooms? Well, they are compact in size but perfectly designed to guarantee a comfy stay. A huge king size bed with a big window front feels like a homey nook whereas the glass covered shower is a highlight itself - the rain shower can be thoroughly enjoyed with a changing mood light atmosphere. And everything in the room is controlled by a tablet PC - one that welcomes every guest by his name after entering the room. Like!
One last word regarding the hotels location: It is located on London's south bank and just a stone's throw from the famous Borough Market. Well, if you happen to plan a trip to London and love design, this is the place to stay! Have a great week, folks!
