Tim Andreas redesigns guestrooms of Sanderson and St Martins Lane

Morgans Hotel Group is redefining its London hotels, Sanderson and St Martins Lane, with guestroom redesigns. The new look by Tim Andreas of Los Angeles–based Banjo Ad pays homage to the original ethos of both hotels.

For a feeling of residential comfort, Sanderson’s rooms will include pieces like built-in banquettes, tailor-made furniture additions, and hand painted designs by artist David Hargrove. Thoughtful touches complement each room, such as light fixtures that create an illusion of a full moon against the blackout shades.

The rooms will be modern, though also paying tribute to the baroque era. Inspired by decorative motifs from the 17th century, the design includes plaster trophy designs, wood oak carvings and hand-blocked scenic wallpaper to echo an English manor house.
