Let's just admit it: not all hotels are created equal. Located in rural Czech Republic, the Hotel Miura (designed by Czech firm Labor 13 ) blends contemporary cosmopolitan sophistication with country surroundings, for a modern hotel design that's stunning in an equally stunning locale.  A palette of charcoal and magenta recurs throughout public and private areas, creating a calm sense of cohesion. Art from top international and Czech artists punctuates the property, among them:  Andy Warhol, David  Černý, Herny Moore, Tony Cragge, John Armleder, Luca Pancrazzi, Petr Pastrňák and Damien Hirst (painting pictured below). Sight lines in the lobby and dining areas expose the odd angles of the structure and afford clear views of the landscape outside. In particular, I love how contemporary ceiling lights can set a sculptural tone for the entire space. Even a simple stairwell can be appealing with dramatic iron charcoal guardrails and modern sconces . Mixing the hotel's colors and angular design motifs, it's not hard to invoke the style at home: Possini Euro Aluminum Crystal Ceiling Light Fixture , Swag Style All Black Giclee Plug-In Chandelier , Tad Geometric White Lacquer Side Table , Scooper Chrome with Metallic Pink Swivel Counter Stool We cover quite a few modern designs like the Hotel Miura with stark geometries and minimalist interiors. And we've all heard the knocks: "it's looks great but I'd hate to live in it." So we'd love to know what you think?  Images: Arch Daily
