Lower Highlands: a Denver boutique hotel with industrial and Victorian accents

A striking play on cladding materials and textures elevates every space

Nestled in the trendy district of the US city, the new Lower Highlands 17-room boutique hotel blends a refined take on the Wild West aesthetic with ultra-contemporary décor.

The façade and interior design of Lower Highlands reflect the modern, pioneering spirit brought to the Colorado state capital in the mid-nineteenth century. Industrial and Victorian details are taken from the nineteenth century and given a contemporary update.

The Life House Group interior design team were tasked with styling the seventeen rooms and communal areas in the hotel, where nods to minimalism contrast with the sumptuous design scheme and cutting-edge technologies.

Laminate flooring by L'Antic Colonial runs through the private and shared spaces, creating a warm and welcoming feel. In the en-suite bathrooms a heavier yet sophisticated aesthetic prevails, with an elegant two-tone black and white set. The shower walls feature Antracita Samoa stone-look porcelain tiles by Porcelanosa.

The Wildflower restaurant is next to the hotel lobby, showcasing vintage look furnishings and laminate flooring by PORCELANOSA Group brand L'Antic Colonial. The grey hues of the badlands stand out against brushstrokes of red - seen in the seat upholstery - and mustard in the golden profiles and lighting. The custom walls boast hand-drawn frontier landscapes, complemented perfectly by cowhide rugs and wood and stone finishes, lending the overall look warmth and elegance.
