Henrietta Hotel’s interior design is by super cool French designer Dorothee Meilichzon
Let’s be honest- who doesn’t get blown away by the decor details when staying in stylish hotels? After all, it’s all part of their magic! And while Pinterest is a great and inexhaustible source for “deco inspiration”, the real deal is when you find yourself into the sophisticated world that expert interior designers have created.
There is always a little something in a hotel’s decoration that catches my attention and makes me think of adding it to my personal space, but in Henrietta Hotel the list kept getting bigger and bigger. For this hotel which is the first in London by the famous Experimental Group, the designer, Dorothée Meilichzon, worked on joining two long and classically English buildings (dating from 1874 and 1877) located at numbers 14 and 15 Henrietta Street. Inspired by the streets of Covent Garden and stylish apartments in Milan, the acclaimed designer curated an 18-room hotel which could also stand as the definition of good taste. Mixing different elements and styles, the hotel’s decoration is a case-study full of ideas to copy.
Below, find the 5 cool decor ideas we are copying from Henrietta Hotel and 3 details we loved.
The color palette
In reference to the rich history of Covent Garden – the Westminster Abbey vegetable garden and then a fruit and vegetable market – Meilichzon opted for a pallet with natural
accents: terracotta for the wall, herbariums, shades of green, stripes on the ceiling painted by hand. As for me, I never thought that dusty “millennial” pink could look so good next to royal blue velvet or that a burgundy bedhead could give so much life to a room. Oh, and now I want dark green curtains.
Brass meets marble
It’s not the first time I have come across this combination, but it’s certainly among the most elegant displays. The brass vintage lights sealed in the white marble bedside tables is pure elegance!
Gigantic stylish bed heads
Cut piece-by-piece and assembled by hand, the headboards are definitely the wow-factor in every suite. Meilichzon who has also created Hotel Grands Boulevards in Paris was inspired by the impressive door frames one can find in Milanese apartments.
The bathroom (made of Wes Anderson’s dreams)
Baby pink and white create the perfect tonal symmetry in a bathroom that gives vintage a whole new refreshing approach.
A ’70s Pierre Paulin inspired armchair dressed in velvet, the super-chic brass lights, an off-white telephone and a small-juke box like radio are only a few of the vintage Easter eggs you can find in Henrietta Hotel.

Pineapple on the door
Do not disturb
Never got more tempted in using the Do not disturb mark before. Yes, it has the shape of an umbrella!
The amazing bath sign
The hand-written style and the color difference caught my attention- and it is probably the easiest of all ideas to copy!
