World’s Best Luxury Hotels for Design Lovers

The week portfolio published an article displaying sixteen of the most exquisite interior designs located all over the world. Here is a excerpt from one of our favorites:

Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, Monaco

Opened in 2004, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo is an elegant hotel with a pool area designed by none other than Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld.  The “haute couture” pool setting, known as Odyssey, features a fresco-style installation made up of 15 glass panels portraying Ulysses’ journey. The hotel also boasts Michelin starred dining by chef Joel Robuchon, as well as beautifully curated gardens.  “Behind the monumental Belle Epoque facade, the place has both pin-sharp classical elegance – and melodious modern rhythm,” says the Daily Telegraph. Designer Jacques Garcia is the person you bring in “when you want to achieve this mix of the gracefully traditional and the contemporary.”
