Staying in Style at the Mandarin Oriental and South Place Hotel
We have recently been busy at work on two new hotel projects that we are keen to show off.
The first was the suites at the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong. The most distinguished grand dame of hotels of the Far East, the Mandarin Oriental is the vanguard of luxury. From the moment you step inside, you instantly feel like you are at home - the finishing is exemplary and the service is out of this world, true to the Mandarin Oriental ethic.
Josephine Home was thrilled to be chosen to equip the hotel's suites, each one totally unique and even the smallest of touches have been beautifully thought out.
When coming up with the concept for the bed linen, we wanted to create a unique design that referenced and welcomed guests to the Chinese culture. The idea of a scattered handful of rice was for us the epitome of bounty, generosity and conviviality. The design was woven into the fabric to produce a subtle decoration that guests will only notice once they step up close to the bed. To complement the duvet cover, the pillowcases are plain with our signature Josephine Home grosgrain trim.
Closer to home, Josephine Home was approached by a brand new hotel in East London, South Place Hotel. The first luxury hotel by D&D London, it is luxurious, yet comfortable and feels remarkably intimate once inside. The amazing lighting highlights the evocative artworks, complementing the sleek yet cosy interiors and the efficient service makes this hotel a gem in the heart of the City.
The bedroom boasts a super comfortable bed with oversized pillows and Josephine Home bed linen is teamed with our pinstripe cushions, giving a nod to London's East End heritage.
Both projects have been a dream for us to be involved with and we do hope you get to see our bed linen in situ at one of these great hotels.
