Spring inspo everywhere the eye turns

Though a stay at a boutique hotel may be out of reach when traveling, you can bring boutique hotel style home with you—after visiting the (free) ground-floor café. A new hotel in Milan, masterminded by Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola, provided inspiration aplenty. And now comes this haute inn in Nice, France, Villa Bougainville.

French architecture firm L'Atelier is behind this colorful, botanical-print-filled scheme for the Villa Bougainville in the French city of Nice. According to Designboom, the hotel's namesake, 18th-century French explorer Louis Antoine de Bougainville (and his adventures) served as inspiration for the leafy motifs found throughout the space.

The botanical motifs include taxonomical charts for plants of various sorts, wallpaper, swaths of carpet, and decorative ceiling elements (like bulbous, carnivorous-plant-like pendant lighting and patterned ceiling circles). Guest rooms—which start at about $64/night—also feature walls painted punchy shades of green and pink.
