In downtown Milan lies the Palazzo Segreti, a carefully restored town house moments away from the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio. Design is at the heart of this hotel, marrying the elegant style of the old building with modern style and sophistication. Large wrought iron doors contrast with dark parquet flooring, raw concrete walls and exposed brick, while antique wooden wardrobes sit alongside white modernist beds and sleek sunken baths.
Bold colour is used intermittently and with taste – think an entirely white room with a bright pink cupboard, or tomato red chairs adding a lift to industrial grey walls. With just 18 rooms and suites, the Palazzo Segreti has an exclusive, boutique feel, creating a place of intimacy and peace within the bustling city.
