“Hotels today make you feel like you’re living in the previous century. That’s the last thing I want to do.” – Karim Rashid
The Semiramis hotel in Athens was Karim Rashid’s first hotel project. “The Semiramis is an intimate hotel that focuses on positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, art, and design. It is a place for new contemporary experiences, to enjoy, work, and relax in a truly memorable way.”

Alot of people have heard of Hotel Fox and I know other blogs have posted some of the photos from their site but I figured I had to do a post because it is one of the most original hotels I have ever seen. Located in Copenhagen, it consists of 61 rooms decorated by 21 artists. “Each room is an individual piece of art. From whacky comical styles to strict graphic design. From fantastic street art and Japanese Manga to simply spaced out fantasies. You will find flowers, fairytales, friendly monsters, dreaming creatures, secrets vaults and…”. Well, here’s a taste of what you’ll find at Hotel Fox.
