Hidden in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the latest edition of H&M’s Hôtel Hennes allowed guests to check-in to their immersive pop-up last weekend. As guests were transported from New York City’s Freeman’s Alley into the elusive Hôtel Hennes, they were greeted with the hotel’s abundance of photo ops and light refreshments. 

While exploring the halls of Hôtel Hennes, guests were met with a variety of photo-friendly private studios that were waiting to be featured on Instagram. Although the event is over, there are five design trends spotted throughout the immersive experience that could be inspiration for your next room makeover.

Fuzzy walls

Although Hôtel Hennes’ hot pink faux fur wall might not be calling your name, you’ve got to admit that the idea of fuzzy walls sounds interesting. As one of the most visually appealing rooms at the pop-up, it’ll be a perfect land on your Pinterest board. If you’re not interested in having all of your walls covered in faux fur, try these blankets — they will come in handy this winter anyway.

Checkered print and polka dots

Arguably the most hypnotizing room, this room’s successful display of an optical illusion resulted from two common design trends. It’s possible to incorporate polka dots into your room in many ways, but the choice to use it as wallpaper paired nicely with the bed’s checkered print bedding.

Green walls

In this room, the matching green bathroom tile on the walls and floor paired well with the slight nautical nod. You may not want to add green tiles to your entire wall, but it’s more manageable to add it to smaller items in your home. After all, the color green pairs well with most things, and it will offer a charming feel to your choice of decor.

Dim lighting and disco balls

Within this room’s red atmosphere, guests are immediately welcomed inside with a LED light sculpture that says “No Vacancy” placed underneath a disco ball. Since disco balls have found their way into many households in the last year, it’s a good time to hang one up inside your room. Pairing both of these together can give your space the decorative yet groovy revival it needed.

Orange overtones

One way to keep cool this summer? Introduce a refreshing shade of orange into your bedroom or living room. In one of the Hôtel Hennes photo studios, guests are met with a beach umbrella, foldable lawn chair and bed as the room’s orange lighting captures its outdoor inspiration. Brightening up your space by a change of lighting is a good hack into allowing more light into your room while choosing whichever color your heart desires.

Needless to say, Hôtel Hennes knows how to convince its guests to book an extended stay.
