“Hotels today make you feel like you’re living in the previous century. That’s the last thing I want to do.” – Karim Rashid


The Semiramis hotel in Athens was Karim Rashid’s first hotel project. “The Semiramis is an intimate hotel that focuses on positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, art, and design. It is a place for new contemporary experiences, to enjoy, work, and relax in a truly memorable way.”

My favourite red room is by . I know a lot of you are already familiar with her work but it is remiss of me not to give her the full credit her work deserves and do another post. Betsy commented on the red room post and said she was doing a new house for the lucky client who gets to work in that fabulous room. She also revealed that she has new photos of recent work but hasn’t found the time yet to update her website. Please do Betsy. I know we’d all love to see more of your amazing work. For those of you who have never been to Burnham Design’s wonderful you’re in for a treat.
