Bright colors and patchwork-style patterns characterize Desigual design and every unique room and suite has bold bedspreads, large pillows, plaids, die-cut blankets with oriental motifs and patchwork jacquard cushions. Walls are covered with large rose- and circular-patterned murals.
The design motif extends to the bathrooms with bright towels, dental kits, tissues and shower caps, with motivational messages scattered about that are sure to make you smile. For instance, by the mirror in one of the bathrooms, it says, “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all,” with a big bold arrow pointing to the lovely creature looking back at you in said mirror.
Desigual has also transformed the Loft, found between floors 23 and 24 (now known as the “Life is Cool” Desigual Loft), which features a bar with views of Barcelona’s skyline, plenty of poufs surrounding low round tables and countless traditional Desigual patchwork rugs scattered on the floor. The space would not be totally Desigual-fied without the 215 sq ft mural highlighting the space. Opposite the mural, the walls have been decorated with reeds to give a beach feel, and on both sides of the wall are mother-of-pearl curtains which let natural light into the space.
Finally, even the outdoor pool area has been revamped with, yes, a 13' x 16’ hand-painted wall that can be seen from the sea or the air and beach towels from the Desigual line are provided to guests so that you can wrap yourseld in the brand's happy embrace.
Rates in November for a Double Desigual Room is EUR 152 ($210) per night.
