As promised a short piece about my experience at the Hotel Il Sereno at Lag di Como. When I stept in the lobby I was immediately inspired.
We are still in the middle of renovations on our Amsterdam townhouse at the the moment so for me Il Sereno was stepping into a massive collection of inspiration. Architect and designer Patricia Urquiola is the mastermind behind the hotels contemporary design, that effortlessly integrates with surrounding nature and environment. It’s built using natural raw materials, including stone and wood with copper accents. Its contemporary look sets it apart from the lake’s more traditional five-star hotels.
I’m an instant fan of her creativity and have been inspired by her work and will definitely try to integrate this style in our newly renovated home.
