When neutrals don’t feel natural to you and clean lines aren’t your focus, it’s time to take leave from interior design norms. We hear you, so today we’re going cuckoo for colour and outlandish decor. We’ll be taking a trip to an extraordinary boutique hotel in Germany, where colour and art pieces create a spectacular union of whimsy and wonder. Next we’ll go home to a bright neoclassical studio apartment that’s characterised by blue colour blocked boiserie, coral clashes and acid yellow accents. Finally we’ll round up our celebration of colour and creativity with a cool modern open plan space, where artfully curated pieces vibe against a desaturated backdrop.

Our first colourful interior design is the Boutique Hotel Holst, located in the centre of the resort town Baden-Baden, Germany. Situated close to the Festspielhaus, this upmarket 9 suite hotel offers its discerning guests a perfect theatrical accompaniment. Bespoke furniture brings bursts of contrasting colour and exciting silhouettes to the rooms, from a hot pink accent chair to a sleek round coffee table.
Each of the 9 hotel suites have an individual design concept. Suite “Soviet Sport” features an amazing art piece that circles the ceiling before trailing the wall to the ground, and ending up as part of a round rug. Plain walls and a small sofa provide a clean gallery white backdrop for the piece. An interesting yet understated floor lamp design serves dual purpose as a side table.
Holst is a Russian word, meaning the artist’s canvas, and Holst hotel will become a venue for contemporary art exhibitions. The intent of the interior design here is to surprise–even the indoor plants are given eye-catching planters.
Almost all furniture items at Holst are custom created to complement the room themes, and to be independent objects of design. A racetrack shaped dining table is brought to life with a stunning array of decorative tiles and lustrous gold edging.
A decorative wall mirror brightens the entryway with a multicolour textile frame. A fabulously unique green closet is printed with a quirky kayaker on a crocodile motif.
The crocodile closet is actually part of an eccentric 4 poster bed design, which features built-in lighting, chargers, and audio speakers.
Colourful tiles and mobile elements create layers from top to toe. Bedside table lamps sport different coloured finishes to keep the eye moving.

The houndstooth motif also upholsters a striking lounge chair, but this time under a dazzling acid yellow colourway.
Elements of regular decor are used to balance out the more eccentric choices, like the stylish but standard floating tv stand mounted against a meld of marbled gypsum and cornflower blue boiserie.
Bright yellow boiserie shakes up the blue bedroom scheme.
Modern dining chairs introduce flashes of red around a black dining table.
