Italian colour riot

I'm on a mission, a colour mission and the interwebs have taken me to La Minervetta Maison, a boutique hotel in Sorrento, Italy. With a decorating style not for the faint hearted it draws its inspiration from fishing villages and all things nautical, the Memphis movement and the whole 80s vibe. Fun and in your face it's the perfect spot for one piece swim suits, floaty kaftans, incredibly large floppy straw hats, platform espadrilles and enough gold jewellery to drown you in the crystal blue Mediterranean Sea. Part theatre and movie set, part Italian maximalism. But sadly my quest continues for the ultimate colour overload. As much as the hotel makes me want to whistle Neapolitan love songs there are still all those white walls.

Love everything about the d├ęcor (especially the kitchen nooks).

The views from the bedrooms are GEORGEOUS! Didn't see any windows in the living areas.

I stayed here on my honeymoon. The design is so lovely. There aren't a lot of amenities. You have to leave the hotel to eat - no room service and the pool is not close by BUT it's a very pretty hotel.

Love the planters with the faces! I read their website, wish this were my family home/business!
