There’s been a machinery revolution in recent times, with a focus on energy costs, sustainability…
The Hari in Belgravia, London, has unveiled a large renovation across its guest rooms.
Working with Hospitality Designs Designer of the Year for 2023, Tara Bernerd, who originally designed the 5-star hotel, has refreshed and reinvigorated the rooms with new design, furniture, fabrics and flooring. Rather than replacing the wide-planked wood floors they have simply been lightened to support the hotel’s commitment to sustainability.
New bespoke rugs are set beneath beds in tones of cream and navy, or rich chocolate brown. Bed frames are now finished in dark ivory leather, complementing the newly upholstered headboards finished in either a dark racing green or rich caramel corduroy. Bespoke side tables, cantilevered from the headboard, are finished in a mid-toned wood, with a pale, lightly-veined marble top.
The iconic Tara Bernerd mirrors above the bed have been retained. More updates include room window seats which have been recovered in a honey-caramel velvet. A new ovoid table with a black metal base and an onyx top veined in shades of greys and creams, sits in front, chosen so that it can be angled towards the sofa, or the new armchair in mid-toned timber with a soft green felt covering. New sheer curtains in a light neutral complete the transformation and refresh of the rooms.
