Boston - our hotel

I mentioned that we had a rather unusual hotel room when we stayed in Boston which had a woodland theme.  I thought you might like to see a few of the woodland details.


This is wallpaper which was on the wall beside the bed.  It is very dark and mysterious.


There were various pieces of wood placed around, the one above was on a shelf at the end of the bed, it appeared rather like some sort of headless animal to us - we didn't like it at all.  The one below was quite amazing, it was very dimensional, about 5 inches deep I would guess, we were scared to touch it in case it all fell down in bits, but on the last day we gave it a poke and it all stayed together - phew!!  Imagine explaining that otherwise.



There was also this row what appeared to be bird houses, each glass piece had a hole in one side - a la birdhouse - and moss in the bottom.  As you can see they were strung from these branches which were strung from the ceiling.  We didn't touch these, even on the last day for fear of them falling!!


Although this lampshade isn't really to my taste, it was quite amazing.  It is a very thin sheet of wood veneer which was bent and twisted around.

I have never stayed anywhere like this and don't suppose that I will again, but it was very interesting to see.  I don't think that I will be copying any of these ideas for use at our home though!!

  1. Quite bizarre, especially the 'bird houses'. I would be having visions of something incubating in those, ready to hatch out... perhaps I've watched too many horror films!

  4. Hi Amy - I'm enjoying your Boston posts... I went there for my 30th birthday back in 2005 and loved it. Even though they had a Nor'easter (a crazy weather situation with lots of gales and floods) - that soon disappeared once we'd boarded a boat over the water to Nantucket.
    I could live in New England - so beautiful. And I envy you going at such a good time of year too.
    That hotel room is definitely a lot more imaginative than the one I stayed in...
    Looking forward to seeing more photos from your trip.

  11. Very weird Amy but interesting nonetheless, it's one hotel room you won't forget in a hurry. :) xx

  12. I like to stay somewhere different, and this certainly looks the part. The main thing for me is that hotel bedlinen should be inviting and fresh, and that the towels are fluffy and preferably white.

  13. Oh, Amy you are braver than me. I couldn't have slept with all that going on in the room. It's somewhere you'll never forget:)

  14. Wow - that looks really cool - the Lumberjack would definitely be interested in all that woodland styling!

  18. We all have our styles but I love experiencing different ones, without having to live in it, your hotel was amazingly different, me too however not a fan of the headless animal wood creation, not entirely soothing for a restful sleep.
    P.S LOVE your autumnal crochet bunting...now that does make you smile and relax.

  21. Very strange decor, not to my liking. To each their own....LOL

  22. I'd be anxious to stay in a room with such flimsy looking decor! I'd be sure to break something! X

    ReplyDelete
  23. Gosh, what an unusual hotel room that was, I'd have been petrified of breaking something! x

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow! So artsy (and a bit wacky). I bet those pieces are difficult to dust. Do you think so?

    ReplyDelete
  25. That's quite an unusual hotel room!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have to say, that is the most unusual hotel room I've ever seen!

  28. Strange but interestingly beautiful ! Thanks for sharing , have a good day !

  29. The decor in your hotel room is really interesting. I like most of it as it's kind of funky and maybe suited for a chalet or beach cottage but not my style for my home. The light shade is really neat looking.

  30. Amy, very unusual. I'm with you, not something you want to be living with in your house!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yikes!
    I don't think I would get ANY sleep in there!

    Cheers!
    Linda :o)

  32. What a cool space!!! Man! Just such a modern vibe with all of those natural pieces used to create that scene! Ha...I can just see you not wanting to touch those in fear that they might fall on you! Too funny! What a pretty retreat to enjoy! Hope your week is going well friend! Nicole xo

  33. What an amazing hotel room! You don't get decoration like that in the hotels I usually stay in - what a great experience. x

    ReplyDelete
  34. Great to be original but rather strange decor, like you, I don't think I would be copying it any time soon xcx

  35. It is fun to stay sometimes in a hotel which is quite odd or unusual, isn't it. This one is really interesting, and the wallpaper gives great atmosphere. I laughed that you gave a poke on the last day! xx

  36. That is a really unusual hotel, you're right! I like the hanging bird things, though, they remind me of small terrariums. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. That has to be one of the most unusual hotel rooms I've ever heard of or seen, I'm not sure I'd get any sleep with all that hanging about my head.

  38. Amy, I don't think I've ever seen such an un-hotel-like hotel room in my life! Definitely not my style, but ... it would be an experience!

    ReplyDelete
  39. How unusual!! Quite busy decoration for a hotel room, I have never seen one like that.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This is a very unique experience that you will always remember.

  41. This was in a hotel room?! I have never seen anything quite like that kind of decor. Unusual, for sure!
