Diane von Furstenberg is taking her prints from the runway to the hotel room as she's signed on to design rooms at London's Claridge's hotel.
The designer and CFDA president said that her latest project was an accident. She explains:
"They approached me because, two years ago, I showed a collection in Florence, which had one line inspired by the grand lobby of Claridge's. I had already designed a line of rugs and home-furnishing fabrics, so I thought it would be a great idea to decorate the hotel."
Diane added her touches on everything from desks, cocktail bars, paint, and curtains in 20 hotel suites.
The rooms will even feature photographs taken by DVF, which was the hotel's idea. She reveals: "I was really taken by surprise, but after I looked into the visual diary that I keep of my travels, I thought it would look very nice."
Sounds like quite the fashionable stay!
Four of the 20 rooms designed by Miz von Furstenberg will be available to guests starting June 23rd.
