Bring the outdoors-in.

Bring the outdoors-in.

Influence your guests with the delight of nature.

Hotels can create enrapturing layouts by using inexpensive, naturally unique plant displays.

A hotel’s decor, ambience and architecture is enhanced increasingly from a plain space to a quaint and luxurious abode using plant installations; helping to transform both interior and exterior display aspects.

 

  1. WELCOME WITH DELIGHT – EXTERIOR

Introduce your guests to the beauty of nature as soon as they arrive. The plush greens and multitudes of colours add texture to the exterior, giving a more enticing invitation to onlookers and guests.

Plants, (especially flowers) make us happy. They even make most of us smile. So, why not make your guests smile with excitement when entering your hotel.

Decorative plant pots are a great way of adding artistic design into an area and a great way to keep living plants contained. The partnership of the luscious plant and the art feature-pot brings the whole piece to life.

 

 

 

 

 

2. HALLWAY & PUBLIC AREAS


Continue to revive your guests through their journey of the hotel. Continue to influence them with the calming nature of the indoor plants on display.

3. A TRICKLE OF NATURE – BATHROOM


The moist air produced by baths and showers help plants thrive and flourish. Helping us benefit from their natural greenery making a lovely contrast to the cool tiles and sanitised environment around them.

4. DESTINATION OF DREAMS – THE BEDROOM (ACCESSORIES)


Bring calm, joy and peace to your guests using accessories with a subtle hint of nature. Here are some examples of hotel bedrooms doing exactly this using natural colour tones through rugs, shades, throws, pillow cases, plants, furniture finishes, flooring, curtains, artwork.

 

Feature walls are a great way to present nature artistically. It’s a certain wow factor and really brings a boldness to a room or area. A must is to make sure the wallpaper isn’t too empowering on the room, that the artwork is tasteful as well as in taste with the room’s colour scheme.

Why not match the blue outdoors with a blue decor?
Make a statement in other areas of the hotel and enhance the decor with feature walls.

5. A BALCONY


Not every hotel has a sea-view to greet guests, but with a balcony apartment you can create a comfortable and cosy garden.

A Room with NO View

A Room with NO View

‘Oh darling, why didn’t you check there was a view in our room?!’

A window, a view. What a privilege. This minor but crucial detail can be the decision maker to unsettling a relationship. The only way they can rid these destructive emotions is to leave the place of temporary residence and enjoy the surroundings to forget the couple’s unfortunate miscommunication; therefore leaving a bad memory of the room/hotel increasing the chance of these customers never to return again!

Dramatic…yes! But we have a point!

Of the majority, we desire a view with our room and as Basil Fawlty states: what we all pay and expect to see out of every hotel we visit, ‘Is it the Sydney Opera House, perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeests swinging majestically…’. however, the view ceases to amaze our expectations.
We have the alternative answer that will help ensure your customers return and remember that when their room wasn’t booked with a view they didn’t mind and enjoyed their stay the same as if they were looking to an expansive landscape of Italy.

Here’s how:

  1. White/Light walls!

Increase the brightness of the room with the old trick – a blank canvas wall. Help the clients eye, gaze onto the fabulous furniture and the accessories you have in the room. The light colours will simulate an expansive and open feel, reflecting the colour in the room and illuminating any light that is in the room.

  1. Compliment these walls using light, bright lampshades and light bulbs.

Brightly coloured lampshades are a great accessory to help irradiate a room. Especially if they are using well lit light bulbs that adequately mimic the spectrum of light that’s given in natural daylight such as Seasonal Affective Disorder bulbs (SAD).

3. Expanse with Mirrors!


Adding mirrors to the room will help simulate the effect of a window or reflection of rays entering the room. As well as bounce around the light colours in the room to expand the space and depth.

  1. Hidden lighting

Hiding the light in the room creates the feeling of an open and exposed space, the same way light creeps into an open window. 

This can be used with lower ground lighting, hidden lamps or tucked away in walls.

5. Artwork


As well as it’s obvious purpose of mimicking a window in the room, the freedom of using a variety artistic canvases will help break up the wall and ceiling to add texture and variety. Therefore the artwork you choose could reflect the fields of Babylon and your hotel residents shouldn’t complain at all.
