  • Stunningly beautiful oriental inspired hotel interiors; pure indulgence

Rest in Spring-Chinese-Style Hotel Design is defined by clean geometric patterns; recognized in the intricately cut wood screens that provide a certain secrecy, windows that allow light but at the same time keep the world at large at a distance, and lotus flowers that seem to grow out of polished stone. These are calm, almost sacred interiors; meditative spaces that hold silence within their walls, reflect thoughts back through clever use of mirrors and neutral earth-tones, natural materials and clean lines.

The interiors in this book strive for a strict symmetrical layout, using unobtrusive design to create a sense of space and order; beauty in simplicity.

Such elegant and charming designs provide a link to ancient Chinese traditions, bringing the past into the present while offering sanctuary from it.
