There are hotels all around the world that can evoke so much inspiration, it makes you want to go home and start DIY-ing. Our Schapiarelli suite is no exception and our hot pink beauty has been celebrated in the best interior, style and fashion magazines across the globe. We had a coffee with interior designer Michael Attenborough to chat about his inspiration.

So before you rush off to the shops looking for fushia paint, here are Michael’s tips on how you can create the wow factor in your home.

The Penthouse at The May Fair hotelStart with colours. If you have a colour in mind, run with it. In the penthouse, the idea was to keep the room cool and relaxing so white was a natural choice with all it’s beautiful tones and hues in between.

- Unsure about colour? Choose a theme instead. Before the Schapiarelli suite was born, the Maharaja suite stood in it’s place. To pay homage to this, the theme of Maharaja’s boudoir took hold.

Signature art at The May Fair- Find a signature piece for your room and work around it. The first item to be chosen for the Schiaparelli suite was the bed head – the rest is history.
