Behind its handsome red-brick façade, Rosewood Washington, D.C. delivers a heightened sense of elegance, intimacy and sophistication—a feeling of being in a most extraordinary and welcoming home. This refined environment is the creation of Peter Silling of Peter Silling & Associates Hotel Interior Design Ltd. Inspired by the history of American architecture, Silling brought the hotel to life by depicting the evolution of this genre. Original contemporary art and furniture are incorporated in juxtaposition to the classic feel of the brownstone building’s industrial exterior. Accenting the modern design elements, traditional American motifs and timeless pewter and gold tones are carried throughout the hotel and into the individually designed guestrooms, which have been crafted to resemble elegant, sublimely comfortable private residences.
The design aesthetic—sophisticated, yet warm and welcoming—reflects both the hotel’s location in Washington’s most historic and exclusive neighborhood and an insistence on incorporating only the very finest quality in the hotel’s decor, materials, furnishings and art. Various elements, both old and new, have been combined to create a luxurious and captivating environment. Unique details—such as reclaimed antique parquet flooring from a European chateau—and artisan craftsmanship appear throughout the property. From the custom work desks to the hand-crafted European leather and wood paneling to the Hermès leather drawer pulls, every element has been meticulously considered.
