San Francisco’s distinct and historic Hotel Triton has just unveiled beautifully renovated new interiors by designer Liubasha Rose and her team at Rose Ink Workshop.
After about a year of work, the property, originally built in 1913, has a fresh and contemporary new appearance that also blends in so much of its historical charm.
While renovating the property, the Rose Ink Workshop team discovered an impressionist mural behind the walls. The scene depicts Mission Delores, which is the oldest building in San Francisco and intact Mission in California. It was created by famed artist Jon Oshanna in the 1940s, and now it has new life as the hotel lobby’s centerpiece.
For the rest of the space, Liubasha Rose incorporated details from her own world travels into the décor. Not only are her own large-scale travel photographs on display throughout the space, but there is international charm in each design inspiration.
For example, the lobby was designed with the Danish concept of “Hygge” in mind, which is a feeling of coziness, comfort, and well-being. Each of the property’s 140 rooms are similarly designed to make hotel guests feel content and at home, even in the public and shared spaces.
A collection of Nigerian Yoruba Crowns are on display, a custom glass-blown chandelier anchors the space, and Bordiglio marble creates a divine floor for the lobby.
The rooms and suites also feature luxurious detailing like Carrera marble finishes, custom furniture and light fixtures, Waterworks plumbing fixtures, warm textile layers, and more.
“For the Hotel Triton we are thrilled to have been able to stay true to the property’s cultural legacy while creating a bastion of worldly culture and local artifacts,” Rose shared in a statement. “Just steps away from the hustle and bustle of the busy San Francisco streets, the Hotel Triton serves as a refuge, and with our décor choices a space that successfully brings together the comfort of home combined with the style and sophistication of a boutique hotel.”
The Triton Hotel has 105 years of history behind it – and it just keeps getting better. Stop by to see the newly-designed space yourself at the intersection of San Francisco’s Union Square, Financial District, and China Town.
