Lost in Translation by The Room Studio
Suite Dreams are Made of This
At these difficult and uncertain times, our thoughts turn to the perfect way to cocoon ourselves. A great place to start is to create a luxurious bedroom which delights all your senses. This swanky hotel suite, known as Lost in Translation, provides plenty of inspiration.
Lost in Translation is designed by Meritxell Ribé and Josep Puigdomènech of The Room Studio as part the Casa Decor exhibition in Madrid. The bed forms the focal point of the suite, placed at an angle in the middle of the room to encourage circulation. The sumptuously upholstered headboard is flanked by two curved arms of fluted glass, providing the perfect combination of privacy and openness. Behind the headboard is an open plan wet area which incorporates the shower and wash basin. The latter is positioned on one side of an oval table, with the other half moonlighting as a small desk or dressing table.
Different materials are cleverly used to demarcate the different areas of the suite: the black marble and gold-framed mirrors of the wet area give way to the wooden wall panelling, parquet floor boards and soft furnishings of the bed / living area. Flashes of russet red - in the bench sofa, the hexagonal shower tiles and part of the floral mural behind the open wardrobe - help to unite the design scheme and add visual interest. Other memorable details include the amoeba shaped rug and the half wood half marble table top.
This is a lavish and uplifting bedroom suite we would happily spend our days in. Let's hope the room service is just as good.
Create your own luxurious sanctuary in the style of Lost in Translation with the Tearoom sofa from Menu, the Blink vanity stool from Stellar Works and the Vanilla Noir Oro Woman in Paris vanity table from Scarlet Splendour.

Kintsugi is the ancient Japanese art of seeking beauty from imperfections by mending broken ceramics with gold lacquer. Artist Glen Martin Taylor has taken this one step further by incorporating an array of unusual found objects with broken porcelain pieces, some of which carry strong personal emotional significance.
As part of his graduation project, designer WooJai Lee created a strong yet light material akin to papier-mâché. The collection feels organic and industrial at the same time, no mean feat for a material which started life as a humble newspaper.
