Templar Hotel, Toronto

May 6, 2012 § 9 Comments

Would it be strange to book a hotel room in your own city? ‘Staycations’ aside, I’ve always loved hitting the sights just like any newcomer or tourist… but never gone as far as to book a hotel room! This may have to change…

The Templar Hotel is set to open in a few weeks in Toronto’s Entertainment District and I’m giving a standing ovation to its designer, Rhed, for delivering on details, details and more details.

Some of those details include…

  • Poliform lacquered walls… (sigh… beautiful)
  • Open bookcases as dividers of space… (not a novel idea but one that should be used more often)
  • Wood floors imbedded with cowhide inserts… (hello! that’s novel and they seem to be magnetic for some reason)
  • Massive floating reception desk… (stunning)
  • Contemporary artwork… (Damian Hirst…look him up)
  • Excel, the large floor lamp seen throughout… (I want this in my living room right now)
