Hôtel du Marc Inspired Rooms | Hilton Lake Taupo


As mentioned on the blog yesterday, the Hôtel du Marc inspired guest rooms that I curated for the Hilton Hotels & Resorts in NZ officially launched on Tuesday. The interview I did with is also now live - take a look here. A very exciting project in partnership with Veuve Clicquot, the idea was to transform the traditional Hilton Hotel stay to create a feeling of being transported to France, with designer furniture, bespoke artwork, new soft furnishings and beautiful coffee table books. 

Wanting to bring to life the elegance that the illustrious Hôtel du Marc is known for, each room has its own look and feel, but all three have been designed to evoke luxury with a slight Clicquot twist. If you'd asked me at the start which room I thought would end up being my favourite I probably would've picked the Hilton Auckland because I am most familiar with the hotel, or Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa because of the incredible location and cosy suite with its own fireplace. But the Hilton Lake Taupo room has really taken me by surprise. A huge transformation, all of the new elements have come together beautifully and I wouldn't mind booking a winter escape here myself!

To complement the existing contemporary décor of the Hilton rooms, I have introduced new elements inspired by French elegance and sophistication, with a few playful twists. In keeping with my personal aesthetic, the colour palette is muted, providing a soft backdrop for the signature Clicquot yellow accents that have been subtly worked into each room. Beautiful textiles including velvet, linen and wool also play a big part in providing texture, warmth and comfort.
