Welcome everyone to week 2 of our “QUIRKY MONDAYS“!
As usual we look forward to scouting the internet to find some of the most unique Quirky homes. Today we bring to you this unique sitting area located at the Brody House, a boutique hotel in Budapest, Hungary housed in a neo-classical heritage building originally constructed in 1896.
Located in the heart of what was the glamorous and exclusive ‘Palace Quarter‘, Brody House was named after Hungarian writer Sandor Brody. The 11-room hotel has unique and individually designed guest rooms which feature vintage up-cycled furniture, paint stripped walls and contemporary art.
So today we will not be critiquing this space. We simply would like to talk about what the designer has done to this very quirky lobby/sitting area.
The designer rather than totally reconstructing it’s interior to mimic what it might have looked like in 1896, has choose to incorporate some rustic/retro style to this cozy lobby. We love the plastered walls used to give it the old world charm and a few key rustic and retro pieces of furniture from different eras to give it some interest. We love the massive wood doors that was most likely restored from the original construction. We couldn’t figure out if it is a rug running in the middle of the room or tiles that imitates the look of a rug. Whichever way we think its gorgeous and really works with this space. Everything is kept to muted tones except a few key pieces used in the furniture and throws to add some interest. There appears to be crystal disco ball pendant which screams 70’s. The rest of the lighting was left very simple using some industrial pendants so as not to take the focus off the rest of what’s happening in the room. While its very busy, we still feel it works and would definitely be a intriguing place to hang out as well in the evenings with a nice glass of wine on the cozy retro couches. Perhaps listen to some classical music made possible by the brilliantly hidden speakers hanging in the corners of the desk area.
All in all we just thought this was such a unique space that you don’t see everyday. It would definitely be a place to add to a bucket list and visit one of these days and brings us to the end of todays Quirky Interiors.
Tell us what you think of this chic quirky boutique hotel. Is this a place you would stay at?
We look forward to seeing you next week with another Quirky Interior. Cheers!
