Champalimaud at The Carlyle Hotel


Alexandra Champalimaud and her team are responsible for designing some of the most stylish and revered hotels in the world. While browsing the Champalimaud portfolio the other day, I completely fell in love with the luxurious suites they designed for The Carlyle Hotel in New York. The celebrated hotel is somewhat of an institution and a favorite of celebrities and high-profile personalities. Champalimaud created bespoke interiors for suites 3001, 1511, 507, 1207, and The Royal Suite, many of which are often used as long-term residences by celebrities visiting or working in New York. The suites are exuberantly chic. While completely tasteful, there is nothing muted about them. They are beautiful, glamorous, and evocative of Hollywood’s golden age while maintaining a New York sensibility.


{Couldn’t you picture this stunning room in a classic movie from the 1950s?}

{I love this room. The addition of a dresser and a proper closet makes it feel less like a hotel room and more like home. How beautiful is the lacquered dresser, by the way? I even like the look of the doors.}

What type of hotel are you most drawn to: traditional, ultra modern, or classic with a twist, like these suites at The Carlyle?
