“Golden Age meets now”, Hedwig van der Valk explains. Together with interior designers Hans Nuijten and Marco Bolderheij she took on the interior decoration project of the hotel, with its 178 rooms. The theme: Hanseatic City. “We wanted to translate Zwolle’s history as a Hanseatic city into a contemporary design.” The result is a mix of grand objects, lush wallpaper and luxurious fabrics. The overall feeling: lofty, warm and glamourous. Hotel rooms included.

Wow factor

For the Wellness Suite and Wellness Suite Glamour, Van der Valk Hotel Zwolle chose wash basins from Not Only White. “We wanted our most luxurious suites to have a bathroom with a wow factor, without losing sight of practicality,” says Hedwig van der Valk. “Marike Andeweg has perfect instincts when it comes to combining style and functionality. Her designs have a fresh look, straight lines, and are a perfect match with the lush interior of the room.” Consequently, the Wellness Suites and the Wellness Centre were equipped with eight wash basins from Not Only White: the Noon, a counter top wash basin in white Hi-Macs®, a high-quality solid surface material.

In the Wellness Suite Glamour, with king-size rain shower and Jacuzzi, organically shaped wash basins Blend were installed, with a custom-made wooden casing. The natural stone walls add to the luxurious look and feel of the bathroom. “Luxurious and practical: there is still plenty of room to store toiletries. That balance feels very good.”
