The Collectionist - amber road


Opting away from standardised décor in rooms, The Collectionist Hotel commissioned the talents of seven designers from four leading design studios, and 13 artists, to create 40 individually designed rooms. Instead of rooms being allocated, guests are invited to peruse available rooms on check-in and choose their room based on the style, colour, texture and design - just as they would a work of art. 

Yasmine Ghoniem's inspiration for The Collectionist Hotel: "Our objective here was for each room to evoke a particular memory: a holiday, a dream, a person, an idea, an experience - ultimately something that would elicit a strong emotive response from the guest. To create our desired response we employed a riot of colour, texture and artful detailing and in doing so, transformed each room into a feast for the senses".

Axolotl Paint was used throughout the eclectic hotel - Metta, Chroma and Micaceous Paints in varying sheen levels adorn each wall, in some cases creating unique and stunning designs and motifs. Axolotl Paint was chosen for the paintability, quality and depth of tone of the curated colours, as well as the beautiful matt finishes achieved in both Metta and Chroma.  The paint also needed to withstand the rigours of daily life of a hotel.
