The Auckland based Raj Design group conceived an integrated design concept that counters a strong prevailing minimalist dcor trend in luxury hotels. Raj's vision favors unabashed opulence, rich textures and warm colors. Specific examples of the hotel's mannered "maximalism" include the winery's coffered ceiling and chandeliers. Guestrooms include dramatic burr walnut bed headboards, floor to ceiling drapes, antique styled furniture and lights, rich bedding and scented pillows in Egyptian linens. The hotel was established in 1865 and the Raj Design group trawled the history books in order to interpret late Nineteenth Century decorative styles with modern materials.
