“St. Petersburg is a unique metropolis showing a particular splendour. It is in its nature to bring out beauty in a very joyful expression”, knows Valentina Lapina of the Arte Nova Studio St. Petersburg. It is with good reason that the Russian jewel is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Tsar Peter the Great had the city built in a western style. Perhaps this is why it is known as the “Venice of the North”. It is a unique mixture of timeless charm and modern lifestyle.
This is also reflected in the Petro Palace Hotel in the heart of the city. Behind the historical façade, modernity exists hand in hand with the splendid style of centuries gone by. “The Petro Palace Hotel, the leading address in the very heart of the city, makes this richness in style and tradition perceptible in every detail”, tells Valentina Lapina about the luxurious hotel. And she had a clear idea of the design of the bathrooms. They were to embody the unfading beauty of the city.
Each culture speaks its own language. Also in terms of design. In Russia, there is a love of rich ornamentation, stylish opulence and luxurious details. A style that originated in the time of the tsars. What is lived here is timeless. In the bathroom, this can best be expressed with Amadea from Villeroy & Boch. This luxurious collection of the highest quality seems to be made for such an exclusive project. Therefore, nothing less than the bathroom of the presidential suite was furnished with the Villeroy & Boch Amadea collection – in the glamorous style of the tsar era.
