Ah, Valentines Day. For many of you it’ll be all about roses, candles, chocolate, and romance. For others, it’ll be nothing more than a yearly reminder that you are single. Maybe you’re reaching the ‘settling-doesn’t-sound-so-bad’ age and your mom has officially given up hope on ever having grandchildren. Whatever your case may be, an entire day filled with enamored couples swapping gifts, cards, and saliva in broad daylight may be enough to make some people want to stay in bed all day and take refuge. As with all things in life, I say, if you’re going to do it, do it in style! And if your bedrooms look anything like the one in The Exchange Hotel in Amsterdam, staying in would be a treat far more sweet than V-day chocolates! Ogle with me, people!



The Line Hotel is located in LA and its décor is a direct reflection of the upbeat culture that surrounds it. The concrete wall, wooden furniture, and floor-to-ceiling window in the bedroom give a rugged look that is at the same time clean and essential.



In direct opposition to the extravangance of the Das Stue Hotel, the bedrooms make use of muted tones which exude clarity and comfort. Patterned textiles add just a splash of color, which liven up the dark walls and parquet floor.



The wooden elements and dark drapery in this bedroom in HOTEL SP34  add a touch of bohemia to the space. The result is the perfect combination of luxury and style.



The architectural project Space is Luxury is a direct attempt to make a tight space aesthetically pleasing. This bedroom proves that doing so is possible. The bed disappears into the ceiling via a lifting system, offering maximum space in this minimal, gorgeous, gray space.



Plants surround the entire façade of Stacking Green and peek through the walls of this bedroom. The gray walls and wood flooring harmonize the entire look and give it a natural feel.



The bedroom in Chalet Béranger is linear, yet fluid; minimal, yet textured. The contrasting walls, curtain, and headboard are somehow continuous and exude an ultra-modern look.



The bedroom in With a dream about KENZO makes use of dark tones and industrial columns to create a truly dreamy atmosphere. The pendant VIBIA lamp creates a dichotomy of forms and adds to the softness of the room.



The bedroon in 6th 1448 Houghton ZM utilizes linear patters in keeping with the architecture of the home. The soft textures, natural lgihting, and subtle color palette make it essential, comfortable, and absolutely indulgent.


Happy Valentine's Day, Archilovers!
