We had the opportunity to have a first-hand look at the fresh new rooms that Sofitel Brisbane offers guests starting this week. The sexy spaces have just been completed and we were the first to have a glimpse of the new fabrics, unique details and comfy living areas each room sports.

Working heavily on the theme of a Parisian apartment, these rooms mimic a pied-à-terre that would suit any jetsetter on their routine visit to Europe, except all in the perfect weather of Australia. A wanderlust play on location with images of both Paris and Brisbane showcase Sofitel roots and local flair; use of luxurious velvets and woven Damasks, we could spend an extended stay here and feel right at home.

Color is the name of the game here with a subdued, yet eye-catching use of accent pops that are used throughout the room and even into the hallways. A rich peacock blue for the Superior rooms, plum for the Club level rooms and robin's egg blue accents for the Junior suites (at around $548 a night) all create a chic European feel.

The true pièce de résistance has to be the Opera Suite. This, along with the Prestige suite, has seen a full gut rehab to create a living space that's right out of Paris' Latin Quarter. Original art, Hermès toiletries and fine details make this the most sought after suite in the city.

The bathroom has a giant Japanese stone-tub, big enough for two connected to an open-plan dressing wardrobe. Our favorite thing? The subtle pin-tucked Damask pattern in the tiles. Now we know why so many celebs choose this room over any other.

I've actually got a number of friend in Brisbane who love going on staycations to hotels around our area to "steal" ideas on how to make up storage and dress up their bedrooms back at home! There's just something to be said about hotel décor...
