Check out this photo. If somebody told us it’s an art collector’s second home on the Left Bank of Paris, we’d believe it. If somebody told us it’s a tucked-away VIP lounge at Sotheby’s … well, we’d probably buy that, as well.
But enough guessing games. We’re happy to report this stylish, artful hideaway is a guest room at New York City’s Eventi Hotel.
At 850 square feet, the living room of the suite has a unique focal point: a salon-like display of art collected from antiques stores and curated by Irish interior designer Colum McCartan. Complementing the array of black-and-white photography, pencil sketches and ink portraits is a massive library of vintage and new books. (Bonus: A wheeled ladder makes the brain food easy-access.)
The room was designed to make travelers feel, quite literally, at home. Certainly the tufted suede blue couch helps. And because the space also features a dining table with space for eight people and its own private terrace, it’s become a popular place for entertaining and celebrating.
One couple passed a particularly magical night here. Right after getting engaged, the happy twosome returned to the suite, where the boyfriend had mounted a huge world map and surrounded it with hundreds of handmade paper planes to represent their past travels and future adventures together.
Talk about being picture-perfect.
Eventi Hotel is located at 851 Avenue of the Americas in New York City (646-794-6830 or eventihotel.com).
