The Art Nouveau-Style CAPELLA HANOI


  Hanoi Opera House and the Old Quarter, Capella Hanoi 
             conjures the glamour of the high society of Opera in the Roaring Twenties.

                             This hotel’s theatrical, Art Nouveau style is the genius of 
                                               ( And I LOVE )   Bill Bensley.'s  work

                            The 47 plush rooms and suites 
                                (some with French balconies, others with terraces) 
                                are decorated with operatic memorabilia. 

At the BACKSTAGE Restaurant Opera Costumes set the stage.

Here is the DIVA Lounge

Diva Bar

Perched on the highest floor are four outstanding Opera Suites.
This is one of them.
You really must check out the carpets in the suites.
Look at the lamp shades!! 

The ultimate DECO bath.
I am in a state of LOVE with this hotel.
I need to stay in this magical place created by Bill Bensley.

   You must search the memorabilia out in each room 
        and in it's application! 

Again, with the divine carpet!

The inset , (front facing) upholstered red wing chair is so clever.
Behind the bed is a stage set design painted on the wall.
Like I said...CLEVER.

Meet me there ?

What are your thoughts on this fabulous place?

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.

Private Paradise
