Bedroom Ideas: Karim Rashid’s Colorful Bedrooms at Semiramis Hotel – Design star Karim Rashid‘s dazzling display of lollipop colors and organically shaped furniture plays happily alongside a rotating collection of contemporary fine art, handpicked by owner and art collector Dakis Joannou. Semiramis is a feast for the eyes for any guest, with works by Tim Noble, Sue Webster or Jeff Koons adorning the walls and representing the best of contemporary art.
With an extra element of cheekiness, guests are encouraged to play with Rashid’s device for communicating with the outside world. Instead of the boring “Do Not Disturb” signs, he offers electronic message boards, which guests can personalize from their in-room keyboards. He describes his overall view of Semiramis as, “an intimate hotel that focuses on positive energy, heightened experiences, culture, design, and art. Semiramis is a place for new contemporary experiences – to enjoy, relax, work, and engage a new memorable experience unlike any other or anywhere else in the world.”
Semiramis’ guestrooms, suites, and poolside bungalows utilize creative materials (like the opaque glass bathroom walls) and playful design such as the light-box art installations behind each bed. Rashid’s mark is on everything from the slippers under the bed to the custom-made carpeting. Offering enticing alternatives to traditional ideas of hospitality design, the designer has dispensed with the use of room numbers, identifying each guestroom with custom-designed symbols. The rooms and bungalows at Semiramis overlook a plush park, the Kefalari neighborhood, or the popular swimming pool. Services even include secretarial support.
