I'm loving the calm, ethereal feel of the guestrooms at the Mondrian SoHo Hotel. Designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz drew inspiration from the 1946 French film "La Belle et La Bete", and its otherworldly influence can be felt all throughout the hotel, from the front entrance to the bar. But my favorite part is definitely the bedrooms — they truly feel like a retreat.
It might be a teeny bit impractical to re-decorate my entire house in shades of blue and white, but I'm still dreaming of bringing a little bit of that modern fairytale ambiance home.
