We wouldn't go for this look in our own home, but in a hotel it's kind of refreshing. Especially in a city like Florence, that's packed to the gills with overwhelming art and architecture, it must feel nice to come back to a room with white walls, white sheets, and the occasional gilded detail.
The interiors were designed by Italian company Cyrus, which has been making bespoke, all-white furnishings since the 1970s. With one foot grounded in minimalism and the other in detail-oriented custom furniture, Cyrus describes its philosophy as one in which "form always has substance and elegance is embodied in a gesture, a detail."
Details of the design include linen curtains, tufted beds, and careful concealment of technology and cords. The only strong color comes in flashes of gold, floral arrangements, or the occasional throw on the bed.
