Saudi princess redecorates hotel

13th August 2012, RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA:  As the prestigious setting for many historic meetings in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia over the past decade, the lobby of the five-star Al Faisaliah Hotel North, A Rosewood Hotel now enters a new era of elegance following its recent refurbishment. 

Designed by Her Highness Princess Al Anoud, CEO of Al Dar Design Company, the new lobby displays clean and contemporary design overlaid with a quietly confident luxury. With a palette of colours and hues that brings immediate freshness to the popular meeting place, and extensive fresh flower arrangements adding vibrancy to the space, the new lobby enjoys a new sense of vibrancy.

Her Highness explained the inspiration for the design: “This is one of the most popular hotel lobbies in Riyadh so it was important to understand how guests interact with the space at various times of the day. Our main goal was to maintain the welcoming spirit of Al Faisaliah Hotel while ensuring the visual language of the space was consistent with that of Al Faisaliah Hotel South lobby. Therefore, we continued with the Dune concept in the design of the reception areas and in our use of Islamic motifs on the columns. Warm color palettes and optimized layout schemes invite feelings of familiarity and comfort to help guests always feel at ease. We have remained true to AlDar's design ethos, embracing tradition and identity of place through creative and modern ways.”
