Inspiring Winter Interiors from Hotels

Looking for ways to make your home feel a little cozier this winter? Ski lodges, British country retreats, and Alpine resorts are a natural starting point in the search for new ideas.

  1. Ilse Crawford's Olde Bell Inn in Great Britain: A renovated Tudor barn combines classic details (like the gray wing chair and Brown Betty Teapot) with modern touches (like the wall sconces).
  2. Peter Silling's Cambrian in Adelboden: A sophisticated Swiss ski resort gets a lift from its gorgeous mountain backdrop. For a similar look at home, try a mountain wall mural.
  3. Andrea Fogli's Excelsior Resort and Spa in Pesaro: Classical and clean-lined, Fogli's white and gray interiors have just a little bit of bite.
  4. Claesson Koivisto Rune's Norbis Hotel in Stockholm: Neutral tones and natural materials contribute to an aesthetic that's meant to be lasting, not flashy.
  5. Jean-Philippe Nuel's Hotel Le Grand Balcon in Toulouse: This French designer's rooms look like ethereal winter dreamscapes and remind one that lavender is an unexpected but cool choice for winter decor.
  6. Kit Kemp's Charlotte Street Hotel in London: The "English Eccentric" aesthetic feels particularly homey in blue and white.
  7. Kelly Wearstler's Viceroy Snowmass in Colorado: This glam 'ski resort on steroids' incorporates lots of antler lighting.
  8. Arne Jacobsen's Radisson Royal Hotel in Copenhagen: One of modernism's master designers combined icy blue and wengé wood in this famous hotel room.
  9. Le Lodge Park Hotel in Megeve: Plaid wallpaper and rustic style are surprisingly classy in a French ski lodge.
  10. United Designers' Dolder Grand Hotel in Zurich: Clean lines, lots of wood, sheer curtains, and a gorgeous mod fireplace make a memorable lounge area in the Dolder.
