This is a unique hotel room that is attractive yet could be more welcoming.
We love the natural wood and other textural elements, such as the painted brick wall. We also love the shag green area rug, which adds an eye-catching focus point (it also reminds us a bit of grass!). However, this contemporary-styled room is lacking in several ways. The first addition we would make is to add a few accessories. Not many accessories are needed for the space, but a large piece of artwork hanging over the sofa would dramatically enhance the look here.
A piece of dimensional art would be perfect on top of the kitchen cabinets. As it stands now, the barren space sticks out like a sore thumb. The room completely lacks greenery as well. Draping plants or flowering pots of greenery (even silk would do here) would aid greatly in breaking up the large empty space. Greenery adds life.
Everything within this room is a solid color. The tasteful addition of patterned accessories here would add dimension to the space. Changing out the light green accent pillows on the sofa to a patterned print would instantly add interest. Even though we love the shag rug, replacing it with a patterned rug could add life to this room. Life which it so desperately needed in the room.
This room feels stark because there is no art, greenery or accessories in sight. Adding these items helps individuals to feel comfortable relaxed. As with any space, the room has to feel complete as well as functional. Since there is a lack of art, accessories and pattern, the room feels cold. All this room needs is a couple finishing touches and any guests will be able to relax and enjoy themselves!
