Every room is painted by a distinct artist so there are no two rooms looking alike. Every one of them has an individual touch of the person decorating it, so each one has its colour score, furniture design and lighting. Be it a room in blue with a photo of a shopping cart on the wall, the one in green with abstract art in front of the bed or the one with graffiti covering the whole area from the floor up to the ceiling you would not be disappointed. Mainly classic furniture and heavy wooden doors neighbouring with the bright art on the walls and the ceiling and colourful linens on the beds create an unbelievably interesting and fascinating environment that everyone starting with the artistic youth and finishing with the successful industrialists would find engaging.
