4 Style Lessons From the Minimalist Masculine Dean Hotel

We are loving the look of The Dean Hotel, a new boutique inn in Providence, Rhode Island designed by ASH NYC.  The hotel's décor has a masculine, minimalist vibe injected with retro sentiments and an amazing spread of finishes. We're digging the sparse, but comfortable look of the guest rooms and especially love the whimsey seen in the hallways and public areas. Read on for our favorite design takeaways from this amazing project.

1. Embrace Unusual Lighting: The hotel's minimalist sconces, floor lamps, and ceiling fixtures may not be focal points, but the injection of texture and industrial quality they bring to these spaces adds to the power of the overall design.

While a polished finish may be more mainstream, this look adds a sense of age and style to these spaces. Dean1 Dean2 4. Add a Portrait: Not only injecting an element of history to these spaces, the copious use of vintage portraiture sets a tone of serious sophistication, but the play in scale and placement keeps the look fresh and current.
