My fellow design divas, feast your eyes on the most impressive hotel suite in all of London! Welcome to “The Apartment” at The Connaught Hotel. Located in the exclusive Mayfair neighbourhood, this penthouse suite was designed by the famous David Collins. David was born in Dublin and attended The Bolton Street School of Architecture in Ireland. He began his career in the mid 1980’s and since then he has designed residential homes, retail spaces, hotels and restaurants everywhere from New York City to Bangkok, Thailand. He is an incredible designer with very distinct taste. When he designed this suite, he wanted to create more than just a place to hang your hat, he wanted to create an original experience. David imagined the suite as the home of a prestigious art connoisseur and chose textures and materials to reflect this vision. The Connaught Hotel has been standing since 1815 and it retains most of it’s original architecture and charm. The hotel offers 5 star service and this suite delivers nothing short of a five star experience!

Here we go: Look at those amazing double doors! What an entrance!
Every sightline is so pristine and chic!
The space is crafted into the eaves of the hotel and features a soaring vaulted ceiling.
Just look at those ombre window treatments! The mirror gold table and and those plush occasional chairs are so glamorous!
The stone used for the fireplace is amazing! David chose blue veins to compliment the blue sky from the panoramic windows.

This dinning room is to die for!
The attention to detail in this master bedroom is marvellous! I would love to stay here.

Love everything! Very crisp and clean!
I saved the best for last! Did I mention that the penthouse suite comes with it’s own private balcony? I am dying for those b&w striped outdoor chairs!
