Hotel Il Palazzo Experimental joins the handful of design-focused guest properties that are popping up across Venice, catering to the abundance of tourists that continue to visit the city for its rich arts and culture scene.
Marble furnishings, lagoon-coloured walls and arched doorways are among the features that Dorothée Meilichzon has incorporated in the interiors of this Venice hotel, inspired to mirror its surroundings.
Occupying a renaissance-era palace, Hotel Il Palazzo Experimental is located in Venice’s Dorsoduro neighbourhood. Set away from the city’s main tourist hubbub, the area is populated with bars, eateries and vintage boutiques.
This is the fifth time that French interior designer Meilichzon has worked with the Experimental hospitality group. The 32 guest suites have been completed in a mixture of warm and cool tones – some surfaces are painted butter-yellow, blush-pink or deep red in a nod to the colour of the homes that line Dorsoduro’s canal ways.
Other walls are a dark, navy hue or mossy green. The greens and blues come from the variant colours of the laguna, truly an inspiration as the colour of it evolves so much during the day and depending on the weather.
