Blue Sky Hospitality recently transformed The Megaro, an eccentric boutique hotel at Kings Cross, into a lifestyle destination like no other in London. Henry Chebaane, founder and creative director of Blue Sky Hospitality, has converted 3 corner studios into rockstar accommodation, including sound system and his signature quirky art objects.
Chebaane’s has created an intensively atmospheric residential environment that makes extensive use of the Diesel Living furniture and lighting range combined with industrial Anglepoise lamps and superlative sound systems from Jarre technologies. The interiors schemes also feature his own quirky artistic compositions printed on metal boards and soft cushions, using local cultural icons from the British bulldog to Harry Potter’s owl, revisited with humour and a dash of rock and roll.
Each generously sized studio has plenty daylight with direct views over St Pancras station. The individual color schemes are inspired by the youth fashions of nearby Camden with names like Scarlet Punk, Plum Rock and Toffee Techno. The walls are textured like graphite and raw concrete, floors are laid with a special 3D carpet evoking burnt rubber on asphalt, while the ceilings are covered with metallic splashes of paint reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s silver factory. The sleek bathrooms have a warm industrial loft feel with corten metal flooring, polished concrete walls and dichroic lighting.
