Boxx Creative has completed the interior redesign of Miramonti, a luxury boutique hotel in the mountains of Brescia, Italy. Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, Miramonti, meaning mountain view, draws its name and design from nature.
A well-thought-out strategy for the hotel was Boxx Creative's first step in its transformation; maximising every square foot to increase bedroom numbers, providing flexibility of room use and creating defined room types for couples and families. The Deluxe Doubles provide an appealing space for couples to relax in comfort inside the room or outside on the balcony. The spacious Family Suites have the option to connect through to en-suite bunk-bed rooms, which comfortably accommodate a family of six.
Boxx Creative redesigned each floor of the hotel and created the interior schemes; drawing on the elements of: earth, fire, air, water, wood and metal. Materials were selected for their authentic properties and link to the surrounding environment and feature in the natural stone wash basins, carved wooden bedframes, solid trunk coffee tables, round metal bedside tables and soft natural fabrics.
"We always focus on quality and environmental impact in our work," commented Nicola Keenan, Interior Designer and Co-founder of Boxx Creative. "All design details have been fully considered across the hotel. Carpet made from recycled fibres line the corridors and is inlaid within the sustainable, hand-crafted wooden flooring. Locally sourced and sustainable materials were used wherever possible and the build contractor was chosen for his energy saving principles and employment of workers within the area."
The majority of the furnishings were made completely bespoke by a talented artisan in his local workshop. The bedrooms feature wooden headboard panelling, metal framed open cabinetry storage and sturdy desks, each thoughtfully hand-crafted. The unique hand-made wooden flooring with individually controlled underfloor heating system, adds warmth and grounding to each room. Beautiful reeded glass panelled doors with curved frame detailing provide privacy to each en-suite and rippled wooden under-sink cabinets hang beneath attractive natural stone basins.
"Lighting was incredibly important to the client," added Nicola Lindsell, Interior Designer and Co-founder of Boxx Creative. "We chose Italian designed, Flos feature pendants in each of the en-suites and Scandinavian inspired adjustable wall lights to create an appealing focal point in the bedrooms."
