Istanbul hotel appoints Anouska Hempel for revamp

Pera Palace Hotel, Jumeirah has appointed renowned hotelier and interior designer Anouska Hempel to design new concepts for the public areas as well as two Presidential Suites in the luxury museum hotel, located in Istanbul, Turkey.

The project is scheduled for completion by mid-2013, aiming to enhance the retro Belle Epoque atmosphere of the hotel.

Anouska’s concept aims to feature the feminine elements of Patisserie de Pera’s Art Nouveau decor in order to complement the more masculine characteristics of the hotel itself.

Each area of the plan will be refurbished over a one-week period.
