Award winning interiors by Stylt Trampoli AB - Spedition Hotel & Restaurant - a small design boutique hotel in Thun, Switzerland

Velvet Squire

A former cheese warehouse cast in chalked whites and pewter-grey shutters, this 120-year-old building of affinage is now the postmark of the Spedition Hotel & Restaurant - a small design boutique hotel that is home to casual hipness and is an insanely popular pit-stop in Bernese Oberland's gorgeous historic town of Thun, Switzerland. Spedition Hotel is all about the design references to the building's provenance - which have been cleverly harnessed and are beautifully exposed. Heritage caresses the dapper interiors with simple elegance, as created by hospitality veterans Stylt Trampoli AB -  an en vogue creative and design agency based in Gothenburg. The ground-floor boutique interiors of the Spedition Hotel & Restaurant play host to mingling, all-day dining and are light, spacy and geared for sociability where the kitchen takes centre stage – not forgetting our favourite perch on the veranda. Move upstairs and the design gear is plush, seductive and chilled with a gorgeous palette of petrol blues, aubergines and canary golds that hug the twisted oak beams. Winner of the global award for hotel interiors by the prestigious Prix Versailles in 2017, the Spedition conveys that subtle feeling of being at home, to be staying in a best friend’s hip loft - complete with pleasingly unrefined knots to the wooden rafters.

The Italian region of Tuscany is tailor-made for romance, so it’s no wonder it was the muse for films ranging from 'Under the Tuscan Sun' to 'Stealing Beauty'. A “nation within a nation”, its vibrant culture gave birth to the Italian Renaissance, the dazzling city of Florence, and museums such as the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace.
