There are a lot of different ways to go about incorporating the luxurious regal aesthetic in a hotel. From the architecture, to the color schemes, every little element makes a difference.
Here’s how you can incorporate this aesthetic in your hotels.
THINK OF A COLOR SCHEME
The very beginning of a space is the color scheme of a space. Be it the reception area or a room, the colors used set the tone for the space. To align with the luxury regal aesthetic there are two different ways to go with the colors. First and perhaps the most loved in this aesthetic is a deep and rich color palette.
This would translate to utilizing darker colors, or deeper variants of bright colors to create an ambience. Be it a deep and lush maroon or a royal caribbean blue, such colors help add definition and warmth to the space.
For a lighter theme, you could venture into the beige and golden tones, leaning towards the medium to darker shades to develop a rich vibe to the place.
DETAILING ALL THE WAY
Ornate detailing is categorical to this aesthetic. Since most of its influence comes from royalty and palaces, it is bound to have an influence on the architecture as well. Through certain architectural features, you can add to the luxe factor of a space. To begin with, pillars are a detail that you could add around the hotel premises.
Be it in the reception area or hallways, pillars can add a dash of royalty to the space. Fine and intricate details and patterns scream regal like nothing else. Carved and etched designs have a soft beauty to them, which can make any space look quite adorned with ease.
Adding such fine and delicate detailing to the walls, window sills or even atop the pillars can prove to be quite a beautiful addition. You could also add such ornate designs to the crown moldings to further the effect.
VINTAGE FURNITURE MUST FEATURE
Vintage or inspired furniture is key to developing the regal aesthetic in a space. Most vintage furniture is made out of wood, a material that has a good amount of features in this aesthetics. Incorporating thrifted one of a kind pieces or having furniture made drawing from vintage elements can add to the place’s luxe factor.
From the beds, to the chairs and even the side table and reception desks, just about every piece of furniture can exude charm with ease. One of the most used styles in furniture design is the use of carved wood details. Carved wood art is rather traditional to the country.
Whether you choose to keep it simple, or even customize the colors of the furniture, these pieces are a beauty to invest in. You could incorporate carved wood furniture pieces throughout a room to go all out or keep it simple with a detailed carved wood bed or sofa.
DECK UP THE CEILING
This aesthetic pays a good amount of attention to the ceiling as well. Ceilings are called the fifth walls of a space, yet often neglected in most designs. In terms of the shape, dome ceilings are most common in this aesthetic. However, geometric defined ceilings too can be modified to have the luxe effect.
With the right approach, developing the ceiling can add to the aesthetic appeal of a space. Ornate and gilded ceilings help create an effect of luxury and regality in a space. To define the ceiling, one could opt to have intricate plaster designs to be carved and etched onto the ceilings. Whether you choose to keep it simple with the detailing or add some colors for definition, either way the designs can shine in the space.
Alternatively, the ceiling can be adorned with crafted wooden or fabric pieces, set into it carefully for a unique look.
OPULENT FABRICS FOR EFFECT
Fabrics and textiles play an equally essential role in maintaining the aesthetic of a room. First and foremost is the textiles that you use to define the space. To decorate with the luxurious regal aesthetic, elaborate curtain settings are key. Flowy fabrics for curtains, in jewel tones in particular can help add to effect.
It is essential to layer different fabrics effectively to form an elaborate curtain setting. You could also get creative with placement, as this aesthetic utilizes curtain canopies even above seating areas and beds. Further, the fabric that you utilize in your furniture must be curated well.
The fabrics can be kept simple or swapped for charming prints. However, ensure that the fabric has a certain comfy finish to it. Velour, suedes or velvet fabrics work particularly well for this aesthetic. Not to forget, detailed rugs and daris around the space can help you zone while adding to the richness. Persian rugs in particular can work rather well.
Warm and mild lighting is just what you need for the space’s aesthetic appeal. Since most of the tones and designs are rather ornate and characterized by deep colors, warm lighting helps throw focus on the design while cutting through the richness of the overall space.
Yellow and warm toned lights work great for this aesthetic. Avoid using too right of a light shade and go for deeper yet functional hues. You could add to the aesthetic through crafting the light fixtures you choose.
You could go for unique handcrafted light encasings, classy pendant lights or opt for timeless elaborate fixtures such as chandeliers and lanterns to create an effect through the lighting.
Overall, the luxurious regal aesthetic is pretty well loved. This is because its features have a quality like no other. From deep jewel tones, to adorned ceiling and gold accents, this aesthetic is just right for a hotel looking to offer a different concept to their guests. The architecture and interior can be aligned with this aesthetic while utilizing modern material to achieve the perfect blend.
