Hotel to Home: Bring the Best of Barcelona's Casa Camper Hotel to Your Home

by ·

Like a lot of you, I find a terrific amount of design inspiration when I travel—but, even when you’re not traveling, foreign destinations can still inspire you. Like this one in Barcelona: Casa Camper Hotel. Here are some highlights from this boutique hotel design that you can incorporate into your own home.

The Color Red

Casa Camper Red

While it's a decorating truism that paint provides the highest-impact for lowest cost, there's more to getting it right than you might think. Here, a strong red is used throughout the Casa Camper's guest rooms to bring a vibrant and modern feeling to the spaces. But too much saturated color can just as sometimes fall flat, which is why these rooms include plenty of industrial textures brought in via modular steel and wood storage areas and classic Italian industrial lighting to help break up the red.

The Modern Vibe

Casa Camper Dining

The hotel's dining space is full of modern elements that would look great in any home. Start casual, with a clean white table and add chrome chairs with white upholstery. Get a little dressy by adding a short white table runner and classic yet still simple Scandinavian-inspired serving pieces and tableware. Then, if you want to really glam it up, add a beaded curtain of metal balls on one wall and huge mounted photographs on another.

The Eclectic Touches

Casa Camper Plant Wall

Longing for parkland but stuck in an apartment? Do what Casa Camper does and dedicate a full wall to industrial shelving filled floor to ceiling with rows and rows of potted greenery.

Casa Camper Hammock

Need a quick and easy guest bed? Try stringing up an elegant hammock in your living room. It makes a personal and unusual addition that not everyone will already have.

Dave Hime, founder/curator of, has been an interior design addict for as long as he can remember. In 2005, he bought a house-in-progress and missed several opportunities to have an influence on his own home decor–leaving him wanting more. With design heroes such as Blake Dollahite ( and Robert & Cortney Novogratz (, Dave began seeking out online resources that would exemplify the interior design practices he's most drawn to: using color, texture and simple materials well. Bringing all of this together, along with his specific focus on providing interior design inspiration from a man's point of view, is Dave's mission: masculine design.
