近期，法国艺术家Camille Walala把她标志性的彩色图案带到了Salt of Palmar度假酒店里，海蓝色、阳光黄和大胆的黑白条纹成为了毛里求斯海岸线上一道亮丽的风景线。
Sea blues, sunny yellows and bold monochromatic stripes appear throughout this boutique hotel, designed by artist Camille Walala to complement the landscape of Mauritius.
Salt of Palmar酒店位于毛里求斯东海岸，共有59间客房，着重为具有文化探索精神、品味时尚的现代旅行者，打造绿色环保、融入当地的度假方式，带领宾客深度体验毛里求斯的魅力风情，领略这座海岛度假天堂的天然之美。
The Salt of Palmar hotel occupies a riad-style building on the east coast of the far-flung island. It contains 59 guest suites, a restaurant and a spa, all of which Camille Walala has decked out in tropical hues and graphic prints.
It is the first in a series of Salt-brand hotels that resort group Lux plans to open in the coming months, and will soon be joined by outposts in Turkey and China.
The brand’s brief to Walala was to “weave strands of distinctly Mauritian aesthetic into the fabric of the interior” of Salt of Palmar, to encourage guests to form an affinity with the destination. This led Walala and art director Julia Jomaa, her long-term collaborator, to develop a colour scheme that directly relates to Mauritius, including both its man-made structures and natural terrain.
“I was blown away with how many vibrant and bold colours you find around the island,” explained Walala. “From the emerald green of the plants to the ever-changing colours of the sky, I wanted to marry these warm and natural tones to my signature pop colours.”
The building’s exterior, which was originally burnt orange, in now a lighter peachy shade, emulating the pastel facades of typical Mauritian homes.Meanwhile the outdoor daybeds, chairs, and cushions have are upholstered in shades of cobalt blue and turquoise to mimic the hue of the Indian Ocean.
