Graffiti Hotel Room

Graffiti Hotel Room


Hello everyone! Chloé from Plenty of Colour here and I'm thrilled to have this new opportunity to pop up on the fabulous COLOURlovers blog a couple of times a month. What an incredible community devoted to all things bright and colorful.

This week, I wanted to share a rather unique hotel room in Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France that caught my eye. The 'Panic Room' was created by artist Tilt and features one half of pure white and one half soaked in layers of colourful graffiti.

I also love the round mirror with just a hint of colour.

Check out the bed fabric!

It is quite a fascinating design that feels at once sterile and artfully chaotic (and perfect for a COLOURlover). Perhaps some might find it less than restful but I imagine it would feel like living in an art installation! The Au Vieux Panier has five rooms redone every year by different artists which is such an intriguing idea.

What do you think? Would you book the 'Panic Room' on your next vacation?

I'm about as conflicted as the room itself! :-D
I love the half-and-half concept, but I think it looks absolutely hideous, and I could never sleep there. I think all graffiti is a horrible, disgusting scourge upon the world, and any time I see it celebrated in any way, I cringe.

In one half total boredom in the other screaming colors and no place where your eyes can rest. I appreciate the work but not my thing either...
The artist however found a perfect title or could capture the state of panic. In one minute nothing in the other total frenzy. As a picture it would be fine but in real life this is not the place where I would sleep at.

I think graffiti can be awesome. Now don't get me wrong, nothing makes me sadder than seeing someones home or space defiled with scribbled lines. BUT... that blank train bridge? or the big ugly cement abutment? you want to make it look hip and interesting? spend your time creating a message? you want to express yourself with color and form? yes... please do.

Definitely an A+ as far as design goes, but sleeping in there might be a little challenging. But hey, at least it is different than most other hotels out there

I love graphitti if it's done right, it's lovely and the wish of every young urban man is to have his tag go cross counrty on a train.

As ar as sleeping in there..............don't you have your eyes closed when you go to sleep, or the lights off

This is a hot mess. Especially the bed being split in half...However as a destination boutique hotel it works. You won't have to live with it for the whole day. I'm pretty sure they say colours release different moods; I wonder what moods you would be feeling with this room?

leanneeb

Intriguing but I wouldn't want to sleep there!

plentyofcolour

Yep, it definitely feels more art installation than sleep-inducing hotel room.. But I find the design intriguing and thought-provoking :)
