HH Interiors’ Helen Hooper transforms Mercure Inverness Hotel

The Mercure Inverness Hotel, set on the banks of the River Ness in the heart of the city of Inverness in the UK, completed its refurbishment, which saw the transformation of its biggest event room. The hotel’s renovation also included the creation of 12 new Privilege Bedrooms.

Interior designer Helen Hooper of HH Interiors, who previously worked with Jupiter Hotels on renovation projects across the UK, aided in the transformation. 

According to Hooper, the design in the new bedrooms is fresh and modern, with the use of bold splashes of color against grey palette. In each room, there is a highland influenced painting positioned on the ceiling over the bed, to add a locally inspired touch to the design. Each room has a bespoke wardrobe and the bathrooms include walk-in showers.
