Palm Suite: eclectic luxury just a stone’s throw from the Colosseum
The Palm Suite hotel, the latest creation by Manfredi Fine Hotels Collection, is located inside a wonderful 18th-century building that faces the Basilica of Maxentius and the Colosseum near the Imperial Fora – one of the most iconic locations in the world, in Rome’s very center.
The hotel includes five luxury suites with a common visual theme: palm trees – which were present in Rome since the age of Suetonius, became popular in the 1800s and are still a common sight in Italy’s capital. The structure was renovated by Giorgia Dennerlein in collaboration with her firm, Loto AD Project. Everything, here, is a mix and contamination between colonial style with pop accents, classical touches and vintage inspiration.
The renovation enhanced some of the interiors’ peculiar aspects, such as the tall wooden ceilings and exposed brick. Colors were chosen carefully, with designer furniture in vibrant and energetic hues and neutral tones like gray for walls, doors and frames.
Exotic imagery dominates the space, with materials such as Vienna straw, natural fabrics alternated with African-prints, and hand-woven polypropylene fibers.
The iconic palm tree returns in the wallpaper and lamps, in patterns and in headboards designed by Loto AD Project. Finally, the floral theme ties in with the wonderful view over the Imperial Fora gardens, creating an aesthetic running theme between interiors and exterior.
