Helloooo Istanbul!

No, I'm not in Istanbul, but I wish I was! I fell in love with this hotel thanks to Ideas to Steal.

Karaköy Rooms is a 9-room boutique hotel designed by Run Architects.

I'm obsessed with copper at the moment, so I love the copper tubing used to conceal wires! What a great idea- if you need to run wires everywhere, why not make them a feature? I think it looks particularly striking three or four tubes wide - circut board-esque.

Don't even get me started on the floor boards, wall moldings and those bathroom tiles!

For a little touch of copper, I love these new desk accessories from Ferm Living, fresh from their new Fall 2012 look book that's been making its way across the interior blogs today. I'm definitely interested in that tray- I think it would look great with perfumes arranged on it.

The copper is a great idea. Functional and beautiful.
I could live in this space!

Oh oh those bathroom tiles!
I never realized copper is such a warm metallic.

This is a great hotel and Karakoy is a really up and coming neighborhood at the moment. Another great hotel is Adahan (in the Şişhane neighborhood) which was an old building that was renovated (without sacrificing the original frescoes). Here are all the details if you are interested: http://goo.gl/kFC40
