The Mondrian Hotel has been described as “modern”, “minimalist” and even “art-deco”, but with its saturated pops of colour set against a monochromatic palette, oversized curvy furniture and theatrical architecture it could even be described as “fantasy design”. Regardless of the style, it offers an abundance of unique ideas to incorporate in our own homes.
The ceiling in the lobby of the Mondrian Hotel in New York's Soho district is a great example of adding interest to an otherwise plain ceiling, and it’s a creative way of repeating a room’s colour palette. Achieve the same look at home using a stencil and paint, cutting out a pattern in a favourite wallpaper or purchasing ready-made vinyl wall decals.

Cream and black are a bold yet neutral recurring colour theme in one of the suites at The Mondrian Hotel in Miami. It’s an easy theme to reproduce. The graphically busy wallpaper is used as a focal wall and a traditional, print area rug defines the sleeping area, along with a smaller yet longer print area rug in the lounging area. The angled coffee table, chair and area rug placement are no accident, as they add energy and interest to an otherwise boxy room. The yellow chair adds a much-needed pop and could simply be swapped out for another in any bold colour.

The Miami Mondrian Hotel's oversized and overstuffed custom furniture is not something most of us have access to; however, re-furbishing vintage or reproduction provincial-style furniture in a bold fabric and painting out the wood trim in glossy bright paint is a great way of capturing the same dramatic look.
