Classical Yet Modern House Hotel in Istanbul

There's something infectious about eclectic design; you know, that not-easily-recreated look in which classical usually abuts modern. The House Hotel Galatasaray, in Istanbul, Turkey, is a sterling example of this approach.

The hotel in a word? Grand. In two more words? Tastefully so. Original moldings are whitewashed and blend beautifully with exposed wood and refined modern sconces.

The renovation of this 120 year old space takes a refined approach in which only a tightly curated selection of classically modern lighting fixtures occur repeatedly in public and private spaces.

Lighting Fixtures in Hotel

Intricate molding befitting a Turkish mansion may not be all that easy to come by in a contemporary house, but lighting fixtures with gold and brass finishes can evoke that classic yet modern vibe:

...or if you don't feel like living with the look 365 days a year, book a flight to Istanbul. Remember to book your room in advance: the House Hotel Galatasaray has only 20 suites.
