Throughout the interior design of the 191 rooms and public spaces, the interior design firm preserved many of the historic elements and layered a design concept informed by Nashville’s famous music industry and flair.
Hotel interior design pulled from diverse, Nashville-based inspirations, such as the leather goods of 20th-century Italian-born designer Peter Nappi. This ambition manifested itself in such design touches as classic overdyed rugs, leather accents, and wood features.

6. THE SOPHY – CHICAGO, USA
The hotel interior design by Stonehill Taylor combined rich materials with classically tailored furnishings, elegant finishes, architectural millwork and an extensive art collection to achieve an aesthetic distinctly Hyde Park – luxurious yet intimate, reminiscent of the neighbourhood’s historic townhouses.
Inspired by the prevalence of gospel music in the local area, the reception lobby features sinuous forms and a warm colour palette with the focal point being a large chandelier made of an 18-ft long brass tube twisting and curving, almost to the sound of music. The interior design of the bar area is inspired by the scientific discoveries of last centuries, manifesting in metals, geometric motifs and light pieces in the space. 20th-century literary figures influence the décor of the restaurant. Imagined as the dining room of an author, the restaurant has bookshelves carved into columns that partition different seating areas.

The lobby lounges, a dedicated gallery space, meeting rooms, and guestrooms all showcase art from hand-picked local artists, and millwork and installation art pieces were made in conjunction with art professors and students from the local university. With LEED Silver Certification, the conversion plans were historically sensitive, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable.
9. REFINERY HOTEL- NEW YORK, USA
The Refinery Hotel was originally built in 1912 to house high-end retail and tea salon on the first floor and various factories, predominantly hat making, on the upper floors.
The new hotel interior design reinterprets the neo-gothic details with features such as the lobby’s manufactured white plaster groin-vaulted ceilings and the warm wood used throughout the bar, Winnie’s Tea Lounge, and the reception area. The guestrooms emanate the original hat-making factories with the use of concrete ceilings, distressed hardwood floors, sewing machine inspired desks, and other factory inspired FF&E.
The expansive rooftop bar provides a year-round rooftop hangout with three sections: indoor, indoor-outdoor, and outdoor. The main feature is the ceiling of the indoor lounge space, which was made with wood salvaged from the dismantled water tank previously at the top of the building.
