Hotel Mercure Kalinigrad: A Fairytale In Russia 

Hotel Mercure Kalinigrad

Hotel Mercure Kalinigrad was inspired by the fairytale heritage of the city of KaliningradRussia. It is a city where different cultures and traditions intertwine seamlessly. The famous storyteller Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffman – author of the magical tale of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King – was born and raised in Kaliningrad. The tale was then turned into a no less magical ballet to the music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky.

The curation of furnishings, lighting fixtures, and textiles was guided by this whimsical inspiration that served as the groundwork for the project. Fittingly, one of BRABBU’s most quaint products was chosen to spruce up the lobby.

The idea for the interior design of the hotel incepted in local history and culture – and the desire to merge them in a sophisticated ambiance that was thrilling as well. The intent, and simultaneously the challenge, was to create an intense interior that wouldn’t jeopardize guest comfort.

As soon as guests enter the lobby, they encounter a theatre-like interior where the past comes to life in a contemporary manner. Right at the entrance, the Mercure Brand logo can be spotted on a white layered brick wall with a unique layout.

In this wall, rest secluded internal spaces with paintings based on Hoffman’s iconic fairytale, created using a mixture of combined collages and classical painting, effectively filling the room with enchanting art.

It is also in the entrance that guests will come across a true testimony to what intense interiors are. Right after the Mercure logo sits a welcoming waiting area, ready to comfort guests upon arrival, here, they will find custom EARTH Armchairs by BRABBU. With shelter-style arms and a barrel-shaped body, these armchairs vow to make a statement in any interior, all while supplying outstanding comfort.

The entrance area decor makes several references to Kaliningrad’s history and even to its location. The burgundy velvet curtains serve as a play on those of a theatre, instantly transporting guests through their resemblance; showers of modern lighting fixtures of different lengths and a classic crystal chandelier demand the guests’ attention, enveloping them in this transcendent design experience and, last but not least, paying homage to the hotel’s waterfront location, the ceiling and some of the walls have been painted in a deep blue shade, matched by the upholstery and some of the curtains.

The bar is nothing short of spectacular either. The counter is built from white marble with gold veins, accentuated by the gold hardware of the bar chairs and the back wall is decorated with a mirror that reflects all the splendor of the lobby.

The rooms, in their turn, are inspired by the visual aspect of the city of Kaliningrad, recreating its towers and inclined roofs with a modern twist. Graphic patterns of the city’s historic facades grace the floors, walls, and ceilings, bringing the cosmopolitan feeling into the room in a fashionable way.

The wall separating the bedroom from the bathroom was created by combining burgundy bricks and glass blocks, resulting in an inimitable look and texture. To bring a sense of warmth and comfort into the bedrooms, bright, vibrant accents were added, such as magenta bed runners, greyish blue chairs, and emerald headboards.
