Steal This Look: A Room at the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch, London

Issue 90 · London Design 2013 · September 17, 2013

Yesterday we featured the new Ace Hotel of Shoreditch, London with interiors by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby of Universal Design Studio. Barber and Osgerby, along with the Ace Hotel team, extended the laid-back Pacific Northwest vibe of the original Ace to the UK location, with a few updates: indigo patchwork, perforated metal storage cabinets, a custom raw denim headboard, and chalky black ceilings. Recreate the look with the following elements:
