Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah announces it has retained renowned hotelier and interior designer, Anouska Hempel, to design new concepts for the public areas and two Presidential suites of the luxury museum hotel.Scheduled for completion by mid-2013, the project will aim to enhance the Belle Époque feel of the hotel and take guests on a journey back in time.
Anouska aims to display the feminine side of Patisserie de Pera’s Art Nouveau décor while complementing the more masculine characteristics of the hotel’s interior. She plans to add pink taffeta, moiré silks, lace curtains, velvet cushions and tiny tables, in silver and cranberry tones to the design of the patisserie.
As the project does not involve major construction work, hotel guests will not be impacted by the redesign. Each area of the plan will be refurbished over a one-week period.
Initially launched in 1892, Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah re-opened in 2010 after a meticulous refurbishment of the building. The redesign aims to enhance the hotel’s status among the luxurious grand hotels of the world, where guests can experience the glamour of a bygone era.
