Here's Your First Look at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong's New Nature-Centric Rooms

This year, the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong is marking its 10th anniversary by giving guests plenty of reasons to celebrate. The hotel has begun a complete refresh of its 113 guestrooms and suites courtesy of 32-year-old Hong Kong designer Joyce Wang. The underlying aesthetic is aimed at freeing up space, both surface area and wall space. Wang brings a touch of nature into the heart of the metropolis, and creates a more open, flowing feel to the rooms. After all, Hong Kong is the home of Feng Shui.

The overall palette of Wang’s accommodations is reminiscent of a springtime forest with muted taupe, browns, beiges, light greens and golds that bring to mind sunlight filtering through the leaves. Carpets take their inspiration from watercolors of animal prints, while silk wall coverings have been hand-painted to look like fine-grained tree bark just a few shades lighter than the dark wooden floorboards.
