We have chosen some beautiful and cozy hotels with beautifully designed interior in one of our favourite styles - rustic style. Check it out and maybe you will get an idea where to travel next :)
On a clear day you can spot the sea from the highest peak. And with more than 100km of pistes to explore El Lodge in Sierra Nevada makes a compelling case for family skiing in Spain. Originally constructed in Finland, the property was deconstructed and transported to Sierra Nevada to be rebuilt a few years ago and uses extremely high quality woods and furnishings which has created quite a superb, intimate and very special chalet hotel. It originally opened in 2013. It was made of wood, with a spectacular terrace and open-air swimming pool overlooking the pistes. Soon after however, early in 2014, a fire started and engulfed the building. While all staff and guests were safely evacuated, the hotel was completely destroyed. Reopened for 2015 ski season, El Lodge has been rebuilt in the same style as the original, in Finnish wood with interior decoration by Andrew Martin. It’s quirky, comfortable, rustic and modern at the same time, with antler chandeliers, cowhide rugs, an antique cable-car cabin in the stairwell and lamps made from Campari Soda bottles hanging over the bar.
This beautiful hotel is a good example of how to combine old and new. Architects worked very consciously with contrasting materials such as local wood, natural stone, granite, glass and exposed concrete. The timeless style puts nature at its centre. Numerous items of furniture and individual pieces were individually designed, which optimizes their functions with much attention to detail. The complex is full of beautifully mixed contrasts such as old-new, inside-outside, rustic-modern etc. We can easily imagine ourselves in that room next to the fireplace, enjoying and relaxing. What about you? :)
In short, this hotel is the ultimate mountain refuge. Why? The hotel Pashmina has one of the best locations in Val Thorens, with guests having instant access to the entire Val Thorens domain and the rest of the Three Valleys beyond. It's contemporary on the one and rustic on the other hand, chic yet cosy, colourful and wood neutral at the same time. The hotel is the perfect mountain hideaway.
Built from aged wood and glass, the design hotel Art & Ski-in Hotel Hinterhag is right next to the ski slopes above Saalbach. As the name already states it offers ski-to-door access for all of you winter sport enthusiasts. It's wooden exterior and interior is perfect for creating warm and cozy rustic feel. It is beautifully combined with some modern, chic features that makes even more special look. We can imagine ourselves right on that beautiful balcony with that amazing view to the ski slopes... What about you? :)
Mother Goose resides in what Utrechters formerly knew to be the Ubica squatters headquarters. There was a large fire and for a period of 25 following years the buildings were neglected and left to squatters. In 2013 they decided to repurpose the monuments and the renovations began. In June of 2014 this beautiful and unique hotel right in the heart of Utrecht opened its doors. It's design can be described as tough, but with a feminine eye for detail. In almost every room you will experience different kinds of vibe because of their unique and different interiors.
The building was originally designed by Thomas Cubitt, who built a lot of the finest houses in Pimlico and nearby Belgravia and its ground floor was for many years a pub - the Clarendon. As soon as you step through the door you are surrounded by style: pared-down decor, shiny plain paintwork, all that art on the walls. Instead of a lobby, there’s a tiny desk and a warm welcome. There are no words to describe hotel's unique style, rustic shabby chic would probably be the nearest guess. Bedrooms are all genuinely different from one another and even the smallest have stylish touches and original art.
Yes, this is one of those where you can imagine yourself enjoying right in front of the traditional open fire right in the middle of the lobby. It is a contemporary and authentique top class chalet - hotel located in the centre of the village, just 100 m from the Chamois ski lifts. It's beautiful rustic interior gives you the feeling of a home away from home - like if it's only purpose was to create warmth and coziness.
