A riot of textures and materials electrify every corner of this boutique hotel
Studio Munge introduced hits of glossy black chrome, swaths of crushed velvet and bursts of burgundy and purple to make the Bisha Hotel rooms fit for rock royalty. But the contrasting finishes and textures also create a “tactile journey” from boudoir to ensuite within the Wallman Architects–designed building, with everything from the midnight blue leather upholstered beds and bar carts to the wispy mesh curtains asking to be touched.
These textures are echoed in the lavatory, where the design studio fashioned custom vanities with fluted high-gloss cobalt doors, lavish white-veined Nero Marquina marble tops and reflective stainless-steel legs. Making a “holistic design statement” throughout the two spaces is what elevates these bedrooms to boutique status. bishahoteltoronto.com
Designer Alessandro Munge says the suites’ creamy white walls “perform as a fantastic canvas for the ranges of blues and greys,” and give the Grace Zeppilli–curated fashion prints that adorn the Bisha hotel’s suites “sex appeal.”
