Yang Bangsheng and Associates Group is a renowned large-scale creative design enterprise, focused on designing interiors for high-end hospitality brands. The Group has headquarters in Shenzhen, China, and offices in New York and Paris. Yang Bangsheng and Associates Group was founded in 1997 by Mr Yang Bangsheng, a well-known hotel interior designer in the Asia Pacific.
It really is no wonder that Yang Bangsheng and Associates Group has a hotel listed for the Frame Awards 2021 – The Golden Eagle Hotel in Nanjing, China.
The Golden Eagle Hotel is located at the top of the world’s highest three-tower building in Nanjing and is also Asia’s largest commercial complex. In line with the artistic level of the landmark, it stands at a height of 368 meters to present a top-class luxury and fashionable lifestyle.
The interior design team define ‘trend’ as the establishment of common cultural cognition beyond sensory stimulation. With this design philosophy, the Yang Bangsheng and Associates Group’ designers combine Nanjing’s profound history and culture with a modern trendy lifestyle to create a brand-new upscale and stylish hotel in China.
The winding Qinhuai River has witnessed the glamour and prosperity of the city and nurtured countless backbone talents for the country. It is the most charming scenery of Nanjing as well as the source of inspiration for YANG’s design in the stylish and luxury Golden Eagle Hotel. From the profound history of Nanjing, the designer team extracts Qinhuai Culture as the design theme, which corresponds to the brand’s DNA of fashion, vitality and freedom. Modern design approaches applied in the space allow elements from both past and present to echo, mix yet collide and challenge with each other, creating a new experience of life.
For cultural expression, the design mixes historical elements with modern art to evoke emotional resonance other than sensory stimulation. Examples include the shape of ancient city walls being reflected in the copper gates of the elevator hall, and the texture of them being translated into the massive metal frames at the lobby lounge, recalling old times and ancient culture in a modern space.
Through modern materials and technology, the glinting ripples on Qinhuai River are extracted as an element adorning the exhibition atrium and lobby lounge, which delivers an elegant yet fashionable feel, whereas the shape and colour of Yuhua Stone (a local speciality) are applied in furniture, carpet and throw pillow, making the space feel carefree while vibrant. The sky loggia connecting the three towers is transformed from a public corridor into an exhibition atrium plus lobby lounge, which effectively uses the space and enriches hotel functions as well.
The five-storey-high exhibition atrium is also a lift hall. The back of the lift shaft, directly reaching the sky lounge at the 55th floor, is equipped with a 13-meter LED screen to make the hall a pre-function area for the adjacent multi-media centre, enabling guests to experience open-style exhibitions or launch events. In the lobby lounge, guests enjoy sufficient circulation and novel F&B experience thanks to the half-open wall facing the corridor.

Simeone Dreary Design Group, founded in 2002, has made over 100 hotel projects including new constructions, renovation and conversion for various brands including Hilton Hotels, Loews Hotels, Marriott International, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, White Lodging, the Marina Bay Sands Corporation and First Elysian Hotel Company LLC.
Simeone Dreary Design Group design’s philosophy rests solely on the belief that there is no substitute for great design. Uncompromised artistry is the core mission of the firm, and although the mediums may differ, adherence to developing a conceptual vision for each project serves as a driving force in everything they create.
St. Jane Hotel was designed by the award-winning design firm Simeone Dreary Design Group. Located in Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, this hotel strives to be a stomping ground of all tastes. Their varied and multifunctional spaces possess their own vibe and experience and still be capable of having a unified purpose: to bring together people and cultures, to create a common ground for the uncommon.
St. Jane Hotel is located right at the heart of the Michigan Avenue, so when walking out of the room, one is just minutes away from enjoying Chicago’s Magnificent Mile attractions, fine dining and local events.
The hotel staff can help in tailoring the trip, find undiscovered gems and provide directions to the best attractions around Chicago. The unique history behind the hotel building’s, bold art deco styles and attention to detail come together to bring together a luxury experience never encountered before.
St. Jane Hotel’s building is a historical landmark: the Carbide and Carbon Building was originally built as the regional headquarters and showcase for Union Carbide. It was completed in 1929 by the Burnham Brothers, sons of the influential Chicago architect Daniel Burnham. The building’s shape and colour are said to be inspired as a response to the time of Prohibition.

Holloway Li is a design consultancy firm established in London. The firm provides innovative architecture and interior design direction to a growing network of international clients across retail, hospitality and private residential sectors.
Holloway Li specialises in the hospitality industry, operating at the forefront of a new wave of designers who blur the boundaries between historicism, decoration, and digital process, to create intricate interiors that are comfortable in the context of contemporary design culture. So it is no wonder the studio was asked to design the Berdemonds Locke Hotel in London.
Mirage-like mirrored ceilings and cacti-filled planters are some of the features that interiors studio Holloway Li has incorporated in this hotel in London, which is meant to echo California deserts. The Bermonds Locke Hotel is located at the heart of southeast London’s Bermondsey neighbourhood, just a few minutes walk from notable landmarks such as The Shard and Tower Bridge.
Despite the hotel’s markedly urban setting, when it came to designing its communal areas and 143 guest rooms, Holloway Li took inspiration from sun-scorched places in California like the Mojave Desert and Joshua Tree National Park. The theme is subtly introduced in the hotel’s reception where mirrors have been used to line sections of the ceiling, mimicking the shiny quality of desert mirages, which are often mistaken for bodies of water.
A white, mottled semi-circular panel has been fitted to the ceiling directly above the concierge counter, its reflection forming a huge moon-like image. Surrounding surfaces have been largely rendered with neutral materials like clay bricks and timber that the studio felt matched the desert landscape. This excludes a handful of walls and structural columns that are clad with passivated zinc, which boasts a rainbow-coloured surface finish.
A variety of seating areas have also been incorporated in Bermonds Locke‘s reception so that it can serve as a co-working space. Where possible, the studio has tried to repurpose construction materials that otherwise would have been destined for landfill, influenced by the ad-hoc building methods used when creating cabins across Joshua Tree. For example, salvaged concrete test cubes have been used to form the base of a six-metre-long terrazzo desk. The cubes are covered with pre-used tiles, some of which are still marked with graffiti.
In another nod to hot, arid landscapes, huge planters filled with different cacti and succulents have been added throughout the hotel’s reception and used to separate its cocktail bar from the restaurant. Bermonds Locke‘s upper floors play host to the guest suites. Each one comes complete with its own kitchenette and laundry facilities, allowing guests to stay self-sufficiently in their rooms for longer periods of time. Fixtures and soft furnishings have been made in colours evocative of desert sunsets, ranging from pale blues to burnt oranges and vivid reds. The focal point of each room is the bed, which is enclosed by a bespoke black frame draped with sheets of linen.

Conran and Partners is an interior and architecture design studio practice founded by Sir Terence Conran who is renowned for designing contemporary ways of living. The studio has offices in London, Hong Kong and Brighton, and their portfolio extends around the world, embracing a rich and varied range of typologies and scales.
The firm was asked to refurbish The Maximilian Hotel, in Prague. The Hotel was open in 1995 by Christian and Rudolf Ploberger, and the make-over covered not only the 71 guest-rooms but also reconfiguring the existing ground floor areas to accommodate new public spaces which include a café and bar – at the hotel’s main entrance -, a brasserie (French-style restaurant) within the living room hub at the heart of the hotel, a library and space just for events with the courtyard garden, alongside with a full renovation of the basement spa.
The Ploberger brothers (who also own the Hotel Josef in Prague), wanted to use the refurbishing as an opportunity to create contrast with the Hotel Josef’s starker iconic style and the Hotel Maximilian’s softer, colourful and more playful style. The design approach for the Maximilian was to reflect the cultural and architectural heritage of the urban context, with a nod to the Czech Modernism.
The hotel’s different areas are highlighted in a different pastel tone as a reference to the colourful architecture of Prague’s inner city. The colours range from light green tones on the entrance to pink in the historic stairwells and deep blue for the guestrooms. The furniture is a careful selection of contemporary and classic products in similar soft shades.
Bespoke lighting elements feature through the public areas and a contemporary chandelier crafted with handmade Czech glass was created for the living room and library. The basement spa has been optimised and refreshed with the use of gentle pastel colours, artwork murals by local design company Lavmi, and warm ambient lighting to promote relaxation.
The Hotel Maximilian is located on Hastalská Street, close to Prague’s Old Town Square, and won the Frame Award for Hotel of the Year in 2019.
Conran and Partners have shared expertise that covers and integrates both architecture and interior design. Their work fans out in many different sectors, ranging from individual restaurants to entire hotels, residential buildings, designing for all market levels and highly-layered regeneration projects – the company offers an added-value through a versatile and coherent approach to design.

Hotel André Latin is a beautiful stone building, this hotel interior design dating from the 19th century, and hiding 68 contemporary rooms. It takes advantage of its privileged location in the famous “Latin Quarter” in Paris, and so it’s a great solution for the visitors in the City of Light. But that’s not all – besides answering the ‘Where to stay in Paris?‘ question, the hotel interior serves as design inspiration for many people who are passionate by hospitality projects and interior design.
The owners, hoteliers Fabian and Guillaume Sodano, had this desire to update the hotel in 2015, and they decided to dedicate it to their paternal grandfather, Andrea Sodano. To achieve that, the Hotel André Latin‘s interiors were created with the help of the young Parisian interior architect Michael Malapert inspired by their grandfather’s taste and personality. Throughout the hotel, we can find mid-century furniture blend with colorful details. The subdued rooms feature wood floors and en suite bathrooms. Some add balconies that allow visitors to enjoy beautiful views over the city.
The french interior design, as well as the fact that this low-key hotel is a 7-minute walk from the Panthéon and a 9-minute walk from the Jardin du Luxembourg, makes it amazingly wanted. As usual in the french interior designs, the rooms may seem small, but these are very comfortable.
The tiny balconies give the rooms a romantic, very Parisian style, feel!
With bold combinations of color and details that create a sense of authenticity, like floors of wooden planks texture, brass lamps, and marble tables, the hotel interiors are a reason alone to visit this beautiful building!
In the moment that the famous writer and his family needed to find “a new rhythm to our lives” as Fitzgerald wrote, they left their home on Long Island for the South of France, hoping to find a cheaper place to live and some quietude do write. They traveled through the then-cheap French Riviera Hotels. Many of the sunbaked restaurants, villas, and hotels they frequented still exist on the mythic stretch of coastline he dubbed “a playground for the world.”
Here’s where to walk in the French Riviera Hotels in the same way that Fitzgerald did.
The stately Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, in Antibes, France, has held court on the rocky Côte d’Azur since the 1870s—playing host to everybody from Hemingway and Picasso to Liz in Dick to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The world’s most glamorous have flocked to Hotel du Cap since Scott’s day: his friends Gerald and Sara Murphy, the models for Dick and Nicole Diver, once rented the hotel for an entire summer, drawing compatriots like the Fitzgeralds, Ernest Hemingway, and Pablo Picasso into their magnetic orbit. Of course, nowadays the hotel is packed during the summer and is the virtual center of the universe during the Cannes Film Festival.
Opened in 1920 as Chez Robinson, an open-air terrace cafe, and bar. Scott and Zelda have known fans of the hotel’s restaurant, a traditional French spot featuring the main dining hall, private room, and garden terrace, reportedly spending many a raucous evening at La Colombe D’Or. It was here that a jealous Zelda once threw herself down a flight of stairs after Scott drunkenly flirted with the dancer Isadora Duncan.
While Gerald and Sara Murphy were living at the Hotel du Cap, waiting for renovations to be completed on their retreat Villa America, the Fitzgeralds stayed at the Continental Hotel in Saint-Raphaël in 1924. It’s here that Scott wrote the majority of The Great Gatsby.
“Once in the middle twenties, I was driving along the High Corniche Road through the twilight with the whole French Riviera twinkling on the sea below. As far ahead as I could see was Monte Carlo … when life was literally a dream.” – On Authorship, Scott Fitzgerald. Monte Carlo Casino was a favorite destination for the couple, mentioned frequently in their letters and writings.
Here, the hard-reveling couple would drink themselves into a stupor, with Scott reportedly a fan of the hotel bar’s gin fizz and mint juleps.
The Hotel Beau Rivage was another spot where the couple stayed and played—although, in Zelda’s words, more “economically” than at other spots. Today, the hotel has been renovated, offering air conditioning, a private beach, and a terrace front restaurant overlooking the Mediterranean.
In 1926, Scott, Zelda, and Scottie returned to the Riviera and rented a seaside house in Juan-les-Pins. Take note of the letter from Fitzgerald to Hemingway in 1926, framed and on display in the lobby: “With our being back in a nice villa on my beloved Riviera (between Nice and Cannes) I’m happier than I’ve been for years. It’s one of those strange, precious and all too transitory moments when everything in one’s life seems to be going well.”

From May 8 to June 18 happens an exhibition of interior design, with a unique format in Europe, which takes place every year in a different location in the center of Madrid – Casa Decor. We believe that a show like this deserves the best accommodation for you to stay, that’s why we bring to you today our top 15 of the best luxury hotels to stay during the exhibition.
Hotel Ritz, Madrid
The Ritz has undergone extensive renovations but has managed to hang onto a lot of its original hotel design so expect classic luxury at every turn. Sumptuous carpets made down the road at the Royal Tapestry Factory ensure that every step you take is in cushioned comfort.
Gran Mélia Palacio de los Duques
Although the building has been comprehensively revamped, original features remain. There is a Velázquez theme throughout the hotel with large reproductions of the great master’s paintings and the color scheme is inspired by the tones of his palette, with shimmery fabrics in hues of ochre, indigo, and maroon.
This is one of those hotels where you step through the door and enter a different world. La Rotonda, as the restaurant and lounge area under an ornate stained-glass dome is called, is a circle of elegance where locals and guests meet for coffee and drinks at all times of the day. There are a good gym and sauna, but no pool.
Only You Hotel Atocha
A massive 19th-century building on a landmark corner site has been given an industrial-style makeover, with exposed pipes, black and white stripes, boxing posters and artworks with a sporting theme. Gentle jazz adds to the New York vibe. Stenciled lettering and a red stripe running along the walls in the corridors lends a bit of multi-storey car park chic.
NH Collection Madrid Suécia
The Suecia opened in the 1950s and for decades the hotel was a meeting place for Swedish residents in Madrid. Star designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán has cleverly remodeled the ground and mezzanine floors, where Art Deco details mix smoothly with contemporary Scandinavian style in the stylish restaurant and café. Definitely, a place to slither off a bar stool after one too many Daquiris.
Urso Hotel & Spa
The Urso opened at the end of August 2014 in an early 20th-century palatial building. Although it is in the center of Madrid, a muted palette of cool green, gray and cream tones and delicate Japanese prints create an air of calm and discreet chicness. Black and white photographs throughout the hotel give a fascinating insight into how the city has changed over the last century.
Hotel Urban Madrid
The first thing you will notice about this unusual hotel is its form — a glass-encased tower studded with black Zimbabwe stone, and seamed with champagne-coloured steel beams. Make sure you try out the wave-shaped flap chair by Edra that reclines at six different angles.
Tótem Madrid Hotel
You step into a world of minimalist luxury where all the materials are high quality. Charcoal, teal, dusky pink, cerise, navy, and purple all play a part in the color scheme, popping out against a palette of shimmery neutrals. The original wooden staircase has been restored and lends a sense of grandeur.
ME Madrid Reina Victoria
The glamor of the Reina Victoria’s former life has filtered through to the present day but now it is all Skandi-chic with Eames-style chairs inside.
Vincci The Mint Hotel
Designed by the renowned Jaime Beriestain, Vincci The Mint occupies an elegant, early 20th-century building and lives up to its name with cool green shades throughout, from peppermint to pistachio, pear, lime, olive, and emerald.
Double Tree by Hilton Madrid Prado
In an elegant traditional building with a white frontage, the Madrid Prado is every inch a boutique property and a very welcome addition to the city’s luxe hotel scene. It’s an excellent choice for those attending Madrid’s gastronomic, fashion and art events.
Hotel Barceló Torre de Madrid
Top Spanish designer Jaime Hayón has created fresh, sensual interiors using a palette of jewel and berry shades with gold details and sweeping curves. A sculpture of a giant zebra-striped bear doffing a top hat dominates the ground-floor lobby and cartoon-like masks decorate the walls in the corridors, along with flamenco-themed artworks.
Hotel Unico Madrid
The Único is nothing if not dramatic. The property was originally a grand residence and it still has a discreet, private feel.
Gran Meliá Fénix Hotel
The hotel’s interior highlight is undoubtedly the lobby. Take a seat in one of the red velvet banquettes, and drink in the scene: a vast, circular room supported by Ionic columns made from yellowed, fibrous marble, and a palace staircase at one end. The room is crowned with a modernist stained-glass dome fizzing with color and decorated with impressions of noble ladies with sausage curls.
NH Collection Madrid Eurobuilding
There are terrific restaurants and a buzzy lobby where guests look up in wonder at the vaulted ceiling, which is actually a 300m LED screen that projects 3D images, videos, photos and all sorts of wizardry.
