I haven't been home a lot lately, almost every day there is an opening or event and with the many emails I spent lots of time reading press releases and newsletters to see what is relevant for my blog or what I personally love.... today some updates on the blog of last week events.
I thought the 40th anniversary of the Marriott Hotel in Amsterdam was one of those party's I didn't want to miss especially because on the night also the plans for the new guest rooms designed by Studio Piet Boon were revealed. Early 2016 all 396 rooms will get a makeover. I met up with fellow bloggers Patrick from Interiorator and Iris from C-More and we had a great night catching up and enjoying the fresh food and drinks.
Inspired by the 'brutalism' movement, which originates from the French béton brut, or ‘raw concrete, the new design offers a really comfortable room with a warm and contemporary atmosphere in which architectural elements, refined raw materials, thoughtful details and smart space solutions form a balanced whole. A soft colour palette of white and grey tones builds on the theme and serves as a basis for fresh neutral colour accents.
