Founded in 2012 by Krissada Sukoso Clapp and designed by celebrated hotel guru Bill Bensley, The Siam offers plenty of panache — silent marble corridors ooze Art Deco and classic colonial-style aesthetics, making this hotel a one-off experience. It’s a perfect synergy between east and west and the grounds are so spacious that the property feels like one’s luxury home, even when it’s booked out.

Elements of colonial-style aesthetics immediately transports you to a time where old world glamour reigned supreme.

The 28 standard rooms are in fact suites with high wooden ceilings, massive beds and large bathrooms with stylish tubs. Plenty of original artwork and 19th and early 20th-century documents and photographs grace the walls, complemented by heavy dark wood furniture and giant bronze ceiling fans, all of which creates a near-silent, luxurious ambience. Modern amenities aren’t lacking either, but they blend in with grace.

At the end of the day, take the time to enjoy the majestic Chao Phara sunset view with a cold drink in hand.

The Siam has three restaurants - the Chon Restaurant serves classic Thai haute cuisine by the banks of the Chao Praya – the pomelo prawn salad is excellent. The Deco Bar and Bistro, its walls covered in brass instruments, offers a great selection of western dishes. The Café Cha is a classic patisserie, ideal for afternoon tea. The perfect pre-dinner drink location is the Bather’s Bar by the pool.

3 EXPERT TIPS ON STYLING WITH STATEMENT RUGS

We love how easy it is to refresh the look of a space just by adding a statement rug. Designer furniture pieces go well particularly with statement rugs. Though pulling an interior look with them and avoiding looking tacky or like a kid’s funhouse may take some effort, we can assure you that it will be all worth it at the end of the day.

Up on the blog today, we have 3 expert tips that will help you incorporate statement rugs in your interior to a T. Read on!

1 MATCH A COLOUR FROM THE RUG TO YOUR DECORATIVE PIECES

Pick a colour from your rug and bring in some accessories to match. Throw cushions, lamps and vases or flowers are great to start with. By adding these accent pieces, it helps with fusing your rug beautifully with your space, and gives a sense that the space is being styled in unison rather than a rug that is placed in just for a pop of visual texture.

2 MUTE YOUR FURNITURE IN THE ROOM

To keep a balance in the space (and for your visual sanity), pick a neutral hue like black, grey, brown or white for most of your furniture. Not only will this help draw attention to the statement rug, this style tip will also help minimise having to change your big ticket items should you give your space a quick update in the future.
