Paying homage to Soho’s history as a centre of artistic activity and bohemia, London’s Sanctum Soho Hotel is a celebration of edgy glamour that fluidly integrates art and individuality into its design. The brainchild of bar and club impresario Mark Fuller, two Edwardian townhouses on Soho’s Warwick Street were given a £10m facelift and converted into a luxurious 30-room, seven-storey crash pad.
Designer Lesley Purcell conceived four distinct mood schemes to meet the diverse aesthetic preferences of hotel guests at London’s Sanctum Soho ranging from sexy and masculine deep chocolate browns, to streamlined glittery silver, sensual soft pinks, and deep exotic mauves for a more dramatic and provocative edge. Light oaks, timbers and parquet flooring soften the ambiance at the hotel, as do two elegant fireplaces. Striking furniture and handmade finishes by London design company Based Upon are interwoven throughout the boutique hotel’s lobby and the members bar, endowing both spaces with a discreet seduction perfect for those seeking both decadence and rejuvenation.
