28 May Belmond La Residencia Unveils Its New Suite No. 67, Designed By Matthew Williamson
When magic meets Mallorca
Belmond La Residencia in the idyllic village of Deià, Mallorca, recently unveiled the enchanting new Suite, No. 67, created by acclaimed British designer, Matthew Williamson, and now available to receive guests.
“I fell in love with Deià from the moment I first visited. It’s one of the places where I feel most creative and it was just such a natural and wonderful starting point for the whole hotel suite concept”, Matthew stated.
The now officially inaugurated one-of-a-kind space oozes a rustic kind of decadence featuring Williamson’s lively trademark colours; modern yet playful designs, hand-drawn fauna and floral patterns and luxurious textures. While respecting the hotel’s current identity and philosophy, the designer injects his own design DNA, enhancing Suite 67 with his interior magic and incredible details.
Each space of the unique one-bed suite has a unique atmosphere: No. 67 now feels like a private house within a hotel. “Gathering the items for suite 67 was a real labour of love”, Matthew told us, “each item was hand selected for its particular design and craftsmanship”.
The details are immediately highlighted when entering the Suite through the cozy outdoor snug: “The hand painted ceramic floor tiles by Balineum in the entrance nod to classic Mediterranean outdoor living and keep this new enclosure cool on long hot summer days. The garden offers beautifully peaceful mountain views and a Palm Springs vibe, harking back to the glamour of 1950s California”, Matthew enthuses.
Inside (the suite consists of a spacious bedroom, an inviting bathroom and a luxurious living area) the carefully selected items from different regions and periods were combined to create a one-of-a-kind private haven.
Hand-made ceramic lamps from Portugal with block printed shades add an intimate cozy ambience at night throughout the entire suite. John Derion’s botanical art framed in the lounge brings the outside in and celebrates the island’s array of flora and fauna.
The designer’s striking wallpaper and upholstery fabric adorns some of the walls and pieces of furniture, complemented by bespoke international furnishing and locally sourced individual pieces from Mallorca, creating a careful balance of contemporary and vintage elements.
Some of Matthew’s favourites are the hand-painted ‘his and her’ wardrobes placed in the hallway connecting the two rooms. “These wardrobes take traditional Spanish carpentry to a whole new level. Meticulously painted floral bouquets adorn the facade with a turquoise patina effect adding to the suite’s rustic charm.”
Carefully selected items including vintage glassware, bespoke wooden units, an ostrich feather lamp, and velvet star rugs have been curated to enhance a distinct and fabulous colour scheme inviting contemporary travellers with a taste for heritage – a space to relax, indulge, escape and dream…
