GET THE LOOK # 3 - Patricia Urquiola's way

Room Mate Giulia Hotel / Milan / Design Patricia Urquiola



The number of hotels designed by famous architects or designers where we would like to spend the night. But most of the time, these places make us pay for the trendy aspect of the place as well as the name that signed it... In other words, unaffordable. 


The hotel organisation Room Mate offers exceptional places at an unprecedented price-performance ratio. Anyway, do not expect to pay less than 235€ per night, but to sleep in a room made 100% by one of the most famous female designer of our time, it's a deal!


Let's talk in detail about this gorgeous Giulia Hotel, designed by Patricia Urquiola from floor to ceiling. Located in the heart of Milan, this 85-room hotel is inspired by the colours of Milanese interiors and the lines of the Bauhaus with a touch of vintage (yes, all that!)



"It's new, fresh, fun and welcoming."

Let's see in detail how to remake our room, as if Urquiola was there:

Room Mate Giulia Hotel, room - Patricia Urquiola


The wall coverings: In my opinion, an orange Marigold.209 by FARROW&BALL would be pretty good. Choose it in matte finish, to get this warm and powdered effect.

Apparently, CASSINA CONTRACT was responsible for overseeing all custom elements such as: bed, bedside tables, storage systems, ottomans, elements composing the bathroom and blackout curtains. So, hard to get them...


+ BUT, about curtainstwo similar collections are interesting. First, Creative Concept by NYA NORDISKAwhich allows you to add a transparent graphic pattern above any colored curtain. Second, Satellite, by KVADRAT. We love these little dots creating a great effect !

+ BUT, because I would never end of praising FERM LIVING, (I have to mention them ), the Gridcurtain will perfectly fit in my opinion.


The sofa: Of course designed by Patricia Urquiola, here's the couch Love (Me) Tender by MOROSO. Created in 2014, this modulable sitting system (you can compose your sofa or simply opt for the Meridian version) is still a must have. Two side tables have also been specially designed to be associated with this model. I love the style of the armrests. Available in Steelcut, Steelcut Trio, Divina and Divina fabrics by KVADRAT.

The coffee table: This beautiful copper table with marble top is from the table collection Meshedited by KETTAL. Again, coming straight from the imagination of Patricia Urquiola, this collection finds its place both in inside and outside. The trays are available in theses diameters: 48, 60, 90 and 135 cm, and in green marble, aluminum or teak top finish. 

The Lounge Chair: With these stitching effect which reminds us the leaf spirit, it isn't surprising that its name is Foliage. Edited by KARTELL in an impressive number of fabrics and color frames. This chair would fit as well in the intimacy of a bedroom as a lounge place. I never gave it a try but it looks very comfy.

The reading lamp: After days of searching for it (not 100% of the time, but I finally found it several times!), I FINALLY found the right track: I say "track" because I didn't find the product itself, which was obviously made to measure for the project. However, I did find the brand MARSET and the collection Polo, which takes place in many rooms (see more pictures of the project, it's the small office and the black lacquered floor lamp). 


+ BUT, to fill you up anyway on the walls, I found a very similar model in our beloved Swedish brand ORSJO. They offer the wall lights Minipoint, I'm not sure that it is brass but I found that the similarity is rather meaningful and of quality.


Sconce: Same thing here, unfortunately I have not found the original... However it is not difficult to substitute this wall light with the AJ Wall, by LOUIS POULSEN. Its retro style is accentuated and this always makes the difference.

The rug: Yes it's true you don't see much on the image! But just to tell you that the brand behind the lobby rug (scratched pattern just like the curtains), is actually GAN. Patricia Urquiola created for them the collection BandasThis allows for the purchase of a carpet. Urquiolian rug ", almost similar to the custom-made one done for the project.



And here you are, a very rich in furniture references project! I hope you found that useful!
