S.K.I.N. Design Studio has just unveiled the model room for the complete redesign of La Pensione boutique hotel in downtown San Diego's Little Italy district.
S.K.I.N. has transformed the interiors, infusing a contemporary urban aesthetic while paying homage to the community's Italian heritage.
Principal designer Deniece Duscheone has developed a concept of affordable luxury, indulging in Frette linens and Carrera marble while designing customized furniture pieces to optimize space and budget. For the color palette, Duscheone drew inspiration from Italian masters of past and present, using shades of persimmon and ochre against a backdrop of bright white with rich grey tones.
The redesign of La Pensione’s guest rooms, including 6 newly created suites featuring private balconies, is scheduled for completion in spring 2010. View additional photographs and keep in touch at http://www.skindesignstudio.com/ for updates regarding the hotel's relaunch!
