Brown’s unveils new British heritage-inspired lobby

Brown’s, a Rocco Forte Hotel, has unveiled the new British springtime-inspired floral front hall.

Since opening in 1837, the hotel has been at the forefront of design.

In this latest unveiling, Olga Polizzi, director of design for Rocco Forte Hotels, pays homage to Brown’s British heritage and illustrious legacy through the exquisite décor and ornately crafted patterns of its new reception area.

The piece de resistance of the new front hall is the hand painted wallpaper featuring whimsical wisteria, created exclusively for Brown’s by renowned British interior designer, Adam Ellis.

Polizzi commented: “I wanted to convey the quintessential English garden feel in a fun and playful way.


“The oversized wisteria, the bright colours and strong patterns are an ode to spring in the United Kingdom and make the front hall interesting and joyful.”

The harmonious palette of blue and mint green hues combine to create a residential-style space where guests are welcomed to their home-away-from-home.

The new front hall also features a signature belvedere glass roof that brings an abundance of natural daylight into the centre of the space.

Polizzi said: “The new Belvedere glass roof has flooded the reception with light and added a sudden skyward view. The concierge team also now have their own reserved area where they can attend to guests in private.”
