CASE STUDY: Restyling De Librije’s Hotel

Published on , in News.

10 rooms at De Librije’s hotel have been restyled using our Neo Royal by Marcel Wanders wallcoverings. Interiors by Ingrid van der Veen.

Located in a former women's prison, the De Librije's building dates back to the beginning of the eighteenth century. Over 5 years the building was restored and renovated by owners Jonnie and Thérèse Boer, and was officially opened in May 2008. Parts of the old women's prison were preserved in the monumental building. The cell doors, bars on the windows and 'dungeon' give this hotel it's unique appearance and atmosphere. In recent renovations 10 of the hotel's guest suites have been revamped using statement wallcoverings from our Neo Royal by Marcel Wanders collection. Let's have a look...

De Librije’s Hotel offers its guests what owners Jonnie and Thérèse describe as the “ultimate hotel experience”. Each room at the hotel was designed with its own story and character in mind. This was important for Jonnie and Thérèse, as they wanted it to remain a unique experience on every stay for both new and returning guests. 

Interior designer Ingrid van der Veen rose to the challenge, creating distinct and eclectic rooms full of colour and imaginative design details that each have an individual atmosphere.

We love Ingrid's use of bold jewel tones - sapphire, emerald, amethyst and ruby - as the basis for the rooms. It gives each room its own strong sense of identity, yet they feel united in their style. 

Ingrid about the rooms: "I chose a colour scheme and atmosphere for each room. The Neo Royal by Marcel Wanders collection fits in well with my design style; tough, yet elegant and it has a luxurious look"

With every corner of the rooms clearly carefully considered, we think the rooms are a triumph in maximalist design! There's only thing left to decide now ... which room are you going to stay in?
