Richards and Spence creates resort-like atmosphere for The Calile Hotel in Brisbane
Sun-bleached pinks, sandy-beiges and gold decor details appear inside this hotel, which Richards and Spence has designed to reference to Brisbane's balmy climate.

"We looked to other hot weather cities with a resort focus to inform our design – Miami, Palm Springs, Rio De Janeiro and Mexico City," said the studio.
Arched doorways and windows have been incorporated throughout, echoing the shape of the scallop-edged balconies on the hotel's external facade.
Some of the rooms also feature curved niches that accommodate freestanding bathtubs or grooved mini-bar counters.
A warm palette is maintained in the hotel's communal areas, which are connected by a sequence of open-air walkways.
"Our climate allows us to live outdoors most of the year. The naturally ventilated rooms allow guests to share our unique outdoor lifestyle, again reinforcing a sense of place that is uniquely Brisbane," added the studio.
Rosy marble has been used to create the surface of tables in the restaurant, where there are also sand-coloured dining chairs. Striped, jade-green umbrellas provide shade to loungers by the pool, which features a semicircle sun deck at its centre.
The hotel also includes a spa, poolside cafe serving Greek cuisine, and a 100-capacity amphitheatre that can be used for events.
Similar to Richards and Spence, artist Camille Walala designed the Salt of Palmar hotel to complement the landscape of far-flung island Mauritius – it's interiors feature sea blues, sunny yellows and peachy oranges.
