Hotel style: SoHo Metropolitan Hotel

The hotel
For the ultimate in indulgence, the SoHo Metropolitan Hotel in Toronto's theatre and entertainment district is the place to be. Since its opening in April 2003, the 92-room upscale luxury hotel has played host to "people seeking the finer things in life, not the cookie-cutter hotel," explains Trina Hendry, the hotel's director of public relations. Some of those people include Madonna, Cameron Diaz, P. Diddy and the boys of Coldplay.

DIY suggestions
For a SoHo Metropolitan Hotel look in your home, begin with a vinyl grasscloth wallcovering, available at local paint and wallpaper stores. If you prefer a flat wall, simply borrow the colour -- Benjamin Moore's Flax, 2098-50. For the beautiful headboard wall, purchase a padded headboard and have a contractor or woodworker build out around it. Dress the bed with a tone on tone sheet set and cashmere throw. And don't forget a few essential accessories to complete the room, such as a metal-base table lamp and a black frame for your favourite black-and-white photograph.
