Bathroom Brands brings old style Hollywood glamour to Notting Hill hotel
Based in London's exclusive Notting Hill, The Laslett is a boutique hotel from Living Rooms, comprising guest rooms designed by award-winning London based architectural and interior design studio Waldo Works.
A stunning project showcasing the very best in British interior design, The Laslett has been featured on the Conde Nast Traveler Hotel List and was awarded Outstanding New Hotel at the Independent Hotel Awards. Bathroom Brands has played its part...
Taking its name from well-loved local Rhaune Laslett, a community activist and organiser of the original Notting Hill Festival, almost every element of the interior nods to Notting Hill's cultural diversity and vibrant past.
The Henderson bar - named after Trinidadian musician Russell 'Russ' Henderson, who is widely recognised as one of the founding fathers of the iconic Carnival - as well as the other ground floor areas, are a real nod to the idea that this is a boutique hotel that welcomes anyone with a penchant for Notting Hill's art scene. Rows of art books are devoted exclusively to British artists and those of Afro-Caribbean descent, while accessories follow something of a retro colour palette, creating a relaxed creative look.
With a design brief to create a uniquely British hotel combining character and comfort, Crosswater's Belgravia brassware collection offered the perfect fit. Combining a monochrome colour scheme, classic metro tiles and elegant chrome fittings, the bathrooms were a design statement created with reference to the London Underground.
With each bathroom lined with full-sized Neal's Yard products and much of the furniture crafted by British designers, it's clear that this is a hip and homely hotel with a truly British edge.
