InterContinental London pays homage to Queen Elizabeth II

High-concept bespoke interior design studio, The Gallery has renovated the Royal Suite on InterContinental London Park Lane’s 8th floor after being inspired by Queen Elizabeth II’s elegance and sophistication. The location has special significance as for the first 10 years of her life; the Queen lived in a building located on this very site, before moving to the Buckingham Palace. The suite is inspired by the Queen’s innate fashion sense and takes a cue from Cecil Beaton’s photographs of her as a young lady. The contrast of soft and hard, masculine and feminine and structured and flowing elements in the suite is to present Her Highness as a homebound as well as an authoritative person. The 135 sq. m. Royal Suite is expected to host the world’s royalty and boasts of Art Deco and contemporary influences. The highlights of this extravagance include a glamorous cocktail cabinet and trolley, the library, a traditional writing desk inlaid with narrow brass strips around its oval frame, a bedroom with a draped bed canopy and floor-to-ceiling antiqued mirrors and a special selection of artwork that has been commissioned for the suite.

The room is adorned in shades of warm platinum and pearly cream and the Queen’s signature yellow color brightens up the space. The classic loop-shaped clasp found on Her Majesty’s iconic little black handbag is incorporated into the rooms’ ironmongery. This suite is truly luxury personified.
