Ever dreamed of sleeping in a ball gown or jumping into a pile of deserts? What about sleeping under a canopy of tree tops? Maison Moschino is the dreamland you never knew you wanted.
The second post in my series on fashionable hotels and resorts, (see my first featured resort: Palazzo Versace) is all about Maison Moschino in Milan, Italy. Moschino has long been known to be a "fun" fashion brand full of peace signs, safety pins, and geese. Yes, geese.
Originally a railway station opened in 1840, the Viale Monte Grappa's exterior is to be honest. . a bit muted, but what they lack in Private Marinas and oceanfront views, they make up for in style, fine dining, and just the right amount of novelty.
Upon entering Maison Moschino, you'll be greeted by bright fluffy clouds, and even fluffier armchairs that look perfect for an afternoon nap. With their immaculate styling, they've managed to do the near impossible: Making a space both ultra modern, and cozy.
Taking inspiration cues from Alice in Wonderland, "Alice's Room" features mad hatter worthy accessories and sleek minimal detailing. Perfect for high tea, millinery parties, and hide and go seek (look at those curtains!).
"Life is a bed of Roses" is one of their more romantic offerings, including a duvet fully appliqued with soft rose petals. Perfect for honeymooners, young couples, or badasses like me that sleep in romantic rooms alone because I want to.
My room of choice would be "Sleeping in a Ballgown" due to it's combined appeal for fashionistas and princesses alike. The bed, shaped as a gala dress, is a sleeveless gown that comes in white or red with pleating at the headboard, and rouching at the bed skirt. One size fits most.
"The Forest" calls to mind imagery of Snow White with her menagerie of creatures. So bring your faux furs and pretend they're your woodland friends as you dive into this camping trip away from home.
Possibly the creepiest of the rooms at Maison Moschino, the "Zzzzzzzz" room features a bee made out of Z's as well as several floating Letter Z's. Ironically, I think this is the room I'd catch the least amount of Z's in.
Coming in at a close second on my favorites list, is the "Sweet Room" featuring gigantic pastry pillows. Now I'm already accustomed to diving head first into a large pile of pastries (as many of my friends remind me as I forcibly squeeze my size six ass into skinny jeans), but for those of you less accustomed to this ritual, I suggest you evoke your inner six year old and dive in.
The last room we'll be featuring is "Shadows" which utilizes the tried and true black and white combination in an effortlessly chic way. Better than the local Super 8 no?
