Hotel in Focus: Velona's Jungle Luxury Suites

Design Trends

Florence’s impressive Velona’s Jungle Luxury Suites stands out for it’s exquisite interior design. Located on the third floor of an elegant mid-century palazzo in central Florence, this boutique hotel boasts exotic jungle-inspired décor. Each room has an eclectic blend of contemporary (black-lacquered woodwork, rain forest-print textiles and designer wallpaper) and vintage (mid-century furnishings and original marble and parquet flooring), forming a chic and playful ambiance. Whimsical details such as salamander door handles and feather-festooned lamps lend a tongue-in-cheek charm to the impeccably styled interiors.

The family’s patriarch, Pasquale Velona, was a well-known Florentine antiques dealer in the mid-20th century, and his daughter Serena personally oversaw the renovation of their family home into suites.
