A while back, we featured New York’s Nomad Hotel, designed by Jacques Garcia, who drew from his memories of the Parisian flat of his youth in designing the lavish interiors. We especially like the bedrooms, which feature an understated Old World glamor.
Recreate the Beaux Arts ambience of the 340-squarefoot Classic Room using the following elements, and see more of the hotel (including the library’s impressive mahogany spiral staircase imported from the south of France) at A Glamorous Retreat for Modern Mad Men.
