As for the decor elements, the country style in hotels is pictured by light shades of the interior (terracotta, brown, beige, blue, white, light green, gray, yellow), fresh colors and, often, a fireplace.

The Scandinavian style is also simple and functional at the same time. It is known all over the world for its coziness and comfort.
The main color in this style is white, complemented only by light shades, as well as graphic lines. When decorating hotels, it involves the use of natural materials (wood, leather, ceramics, cotton, linen, etc.). Also, its main highlight is the presence of a large table made of solid wood.
Interior designers especially love it, so it is often found in hotels of various categories around the world.

Eclectic or mixed style of the hotel interior
This style contains elements that may be inherent in different styles. At the same time, they all look harmoniously with each other. When choosing this style, you will dive into a unique design and you will have a field for experiments.
But it should be noted that eclecticism in the interior does not tolerate an excessive number of decorative items and furniture of various styles, since all this makes the space heavier and uncomfortable.
The advantages of the mixed style:
- "Field" for fantasy.
- You can create a unique design.
Disadvantages of Eclectic style:
- You can overdo it and the space will be uncomfortable and loaded.
This style is mainly used in hotels of the Ribas Hotels Group.
For example, at the Bortoli hotel we created an absolutely modern design, closer to modernism, with Viennese chairs designed at the beginning of the XX century. In our projects for Ribas Hotels Group, we have always adhered to a modern style, but we were also not afraid to introduce furniture or decor inherent in another style into the interior, " said Vitaly Shvaltsvalder, co-founder of Imla, a company that designed and supervised the construction of Ribas Hotels Group hotels.
The interior design of the hotel certainly affects its further occupancy. However, to correctly determine the style, you should take into account the location of the hotel, its target audience and the allocated budget. Professional management companies that manage the facility from its beginning to its commissioning always take these factors into account. Entrusting all processes to one team is often a more profitable and correct decision, since it controls them and is responsible for maintaining the quality and timing on each stage of development.
