The Byblos Art Hotel in Verona, Italy is both a contemporary art museum as well as a 5-star hotel. Traditional Italian villa on the outside and over-the-top modern madness on the inside. Stepping inside is sure to be a wake-up for your senses. The hotel is filled with modern works from the likes of  Frank Lloyd Wright, Anish Kapoor, Beatriz Millar,  Damien Hirst, and Cindy Sherman. This contrast of modern art and 18th century architecture creates a jaw dropping statement that will have you mesmerized! The 18th century building, Villa Amista, is the work of architect  Ignazio Pellegrini while the inventive interiors were created by  Allessandro Mendini. Let's take a look inside the minds of these magical designers. The presidential suite is a cheerful place, combining sculptural mid-century modern chairs in bold yellow that contrast with the white surroundings. Perfect for any modern space,  transparent acrylic chairs glow like light sculptures when the sun hits them.   How happy would you be to wake up in this room?! The vibrant colors and fabrics modernize the ornate furniture. Ultra modern floor lamps and table lamps can add even more fun to an already colorful space.   This room (above) is said to be like entering into the designer's imagination. Their mind feels organized and vibrant to me.   The Junior Suite (above) is filled with furniture from Mendini, Ron Arad, and Philippe Starck. Colorful modern wall sconces make a statement in any modern space, even in a room as dramatic as this one!   The Damien Hirst artwork (above): bold fabrics, and ornate furniture...what combinations! This work by Beatriz Miller (above) should have the art lover in you calling to make a reservation... Images: Design Milk , Haute Design
