World's Best Hotel Design Details

The copper tub at London's Rough Luxe hotel

As its name suggests, London's new Rough Luxe hotel, which is located in a town house on the edge of the edgy Kings Cross district, is all about stylish slumming. Outside, the look is pure 19th-century Georgian town house, while inside, the aesthetic is...well...much of the same. Designer Rabih Hage left the original building almost entirely as he found it, adding new elements such as crystal chandeliers, murals, and—our favorite piece—this free-standing burnished copper bath in Room 8.
