Whether you’ve been to Ace Hotel in New York, Palm Springs, or Portland, you’ve likely noticed the Ace Hotel design style. The moment you walked into the Ace Hotel, you knew their decorating style had to be part of your home. Take away some of the basic ideas from these eclectic hotels to see your own home flourish into a designer getaway.
Simple and clean bathroom decor
Although you don’t necessarily make the bathroom a main hangout space, the Ace Hotel is known for its black-and-white simplicity that should be incorporated at home. This design idea is one of the most affordable because the majority of bathrooms are basically white. Add a few accents, such as a vintage box to hold towels, to make the area unique.
Use wood as a focal point
Basic living or bedroom spaces come alive with the natural texture wood brings. Create a wood panel wall like the Ace Hotel Portland did to make the wood a focal point. Since a wood panel wall isn’t feasible for many homeowners (or renters), wood furniture is a perfect replacement for paneling. Try antique wood at flea markets to really find a unique piece for the home.
Decorate with canvas
If canvas linens make you think of camping, you’re in for a happy surprise—they’re a becoming a huge home decor trend. From cream to pure white hues, canvas creates a strong impression as you walk into a room. Pull them aside during the day, but use their thick texture for privacy at night. Even add sheer curtains for daytime privacy. Canvas is also available in black colors to really create drama. Ace Hotels use these sturdy materials for durable and cost-friendly purposes while still creating a designer look.
Ace Hotel rooms feature fantastic modern art, often in unexpected ways like the cat painted onto the wall in this room. You could create the same thing at your home by borrowing a projector and carefully painting a design onto a wall. Or commission a local street artist to create something that will be completely unique (and permanent!).
