    Award-winning interior design firm, Dawson Design Associates, has been commissioned by Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza to create a provoking, memorable space that exudes the luxury and romance of a Mediterranean villa. Classic sophistication, European elegance and contemporary chic best describes the ambiance and vibe of this thoroughly modern luxurious hotel. In a fusion of old and new, the Sorella takes a playfully cosmopolitan approach in this latest addition to the City’s famous shopping area, the Seville inspired Country Club Plaza. Intricate custom marble tile mosaics inset into white marble floors, hand carved elaborate wood paneling, blown Venetian glass chandeliers, Renaissance inspired paintings with a contemporary modern twist will all merge together to inspire and delight guests as they enter the hotels dramatic lobby. Juxtaposed with the contemporary architecture of curtain walls of glass and steel, the Sorella is a complex fusion of elegance and romance capturing the seduction and luxury of an exclusive Mediterranean villa.

    The intimate Garden lounge, modeled after a private garden observatory, allows guest to take in the sun and relax in a space filled with soft light and romantic sparkle. Hand hewn granite pavers, green walls of plants, festoon lighting and comfortable living room seating make this niche off the lobby the perfect hideaway to escape into to read a newspaper over a morning espresso, or to simply sip a glass of wine after a long day of business.

    Guestrooms will continue the story of the exclusive Sorella and its timeless fine taste and sense of refined style. Beautifully subdued, the intimate rooms are a sanctuary from the world. Quite shades of blue white and soft grey with rich warm woods and luxurious velvet’s, surround the dramatic headboard tapestry. As the focal point of the guest room, it is modern interpretation of a classic motif. The sublime white on white guest bathrooms of Carrera marble accented by sleek mirrored stainless steel accents and accessories highlight the extravagantly oversized walk in showers.

    The designers of this masterpiece, US practice Dawson Design, recently opened their London office in Twickenham.
