. The villa’s thoughtfully designed bedrooms and electically themed public areas, are inspired by a range of eras including Classic Norwegian, Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts and a bit of Japonisme, all rooted in the history of the building. Guests can imbibe cocktails among the spirits in the Villa’s intimate Ghost Bar, with mosaic floors combining Golden Onyx with Norwegian Granites, silver gilt walls, and antique light fixtures. The bedrooms boast opulent details and lush textiles, such as custom-designed furnishings with marquetried details recalling 19th century Norwegian motifs, bespoke hand-knotted rugs, beds from innovative Swedish sleep brand Hilding Anders, and dreamy bathrooms with custom tiles.

A series of distinctly themed rooms, both chromatically and in spirit, make up the public areas of the Villa Inkognito. Guests enter through their own entrance ?, which is in a black and white color scheme with Antique wallpaper from America. From there, their journey advances chromatically with each room in a wildly different color scheme, much like Dorothy’s experience after the crash landing of her House into technicolor Oz.
