What do you do when your partner is a minimalist but you’re on the search for somewhere to stay that’s got a bit of a wow-factor? Head to the world’s first ever half and half hotel of course!
It often feels like every other building in London is a hotel, all with their unique personal finishing touches and personality traits, but The Curtain Hotel in Shoreditch has gone one step further with their all new suite. Perfectly named ‘So Extra So Chic’, the suite is directly spilt straight down the middle, channeling both your minimalist and your inner maximalist. Um, genius!
Hotels.com unveiled the world’s first half and half hotel room last week and it’s already cooking up a bit of a storm on the ol’ web, and rightly so! The delightful design work was co-created by Katy Perry’s stylist Johnny Wujek and fashion model and influencer Kaitlyn Ham. Wujek was challenged with creating the flamboyant side of the suite, while Ham was in charge of designing the chic minimalist side.
The elaborately designed side of the room is adorned with colourful florals, beachy golden palms and well, pretty much, golden everything. I mean, there’s even a golden monkey holding a light bulb on the bedside table, it’s so extra! While Ham took inspiration for the minimalist side from her own love of modern mid-century design hoping to create a space that feels open and calming, and has made sure every item has a practical use. So you won’t be seeing a rogue monkey over here that’s for sure! But either way, we’re dreaming of a slumber party here in this suite!
So if this is up your street, the SoExtraSoChic hotel suite is available to book here until 29th October, and can be found at The Curtain Hotel, 45 Curtain Road, Hackney, EC2A 3PT
