Face-lifting a beauty from a bygone era
Most of us will recognise the name “The Grace Hotel” – an iconic boutique hotel that has offered luxurious and elegant accommodation and cuisine to travellers for many a decade.
The Grace was recently purchased by hotel and gaming group Tsogo Sun, who saw the potential to give a facelift to a beautiful yet dated hotel in the central suburb of Rosebank.
I was one of the privileged few to be invited to the exclusive preview of the hotel, still in the renovation stages. Being a construction site, we were issued with hard hats for safety, and taken through some of the completed and planned changes for the hotel.
I followed Norman Wallace, Operations Director of the Lux Group, as he took us through the design and décor angle for the rooms in the hotel.
I also cornered David Muirhead (from Muirhead and Associates), the appointed interior designer for 54 on Bath, to quiz him on the inspirations behind the theme running throughout the interior of the hotel.
