This Boutique Hotel in Moscow Likes to Play With Color

Who says millennial pink is over? At the Pokrovka 6 Hotel, this saccharine shade makes a prominent feature throughout the interiors.

This boutique hotel is located inside a historic Moscow building that has an unusual layout accented by oddly angled roof and walls. Tasked with the job of transforming the building into a comfortable accommodation, design firm Ptizzaryba turned the U-shaped 600-square-meter attic into 30 guest rooms and small common areas that balance Russia’s industrial past with a modern vibe.

There’s a subtle underlying minimalism at the Pokrovka 6 Hotel. You won’t find any over-the-top extravagance here. Instead, pared-down guest rooms feature punchy shades of daffodil yellow, sky blue, emerald and lime green, giving the interiors a playful brightness and a nod to Russian avant-garde artists. Meanwhile, Soviet era light fixtures, birch tree stumps and custom-built Siberian plywood furniture pay homage to Russia’s culture and heritage.
