Indochine reflects Southeast Asian colonial empire. It’s painted finish walls echo the ageing exterior of coloinal buildings, juxtaposed with a very contemporary pink grasscloth walpaper. We’ve renovated the preserved the bathroom’ original wall coating under layers of glaze, plus added new wall tiles, brass shower fittings, ancient Khmer finishes, and added a Khmer graffitti motif. There’s a heightened door for tall customers. Room is styled with antiques and period pieces, including locked Deco armoire and chairs, antique Uzbek “bear skin” wool carpet. The cooling floor tiles are original.
