The guest rooms at The Opposite House Beijing blend modernism with minimalist design and achieve a result that is calming and bright. Most rooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel are studios and set up as large open spaces that are cleverly partitioned with glass walls and sheer curtains with floor-to-ceiling windows and wooden finishes throughout the room. A high wooden bar serves as a dining table for six, a wooden bathtub, and wooden floors and walls makes the room approachable and avoids the cold aesthetic associated with a lot of modern design. The one design element that’s not wood is a gray slate accent wall — the texture and color adds a grounding and earthy feel and helps it become the haven of relaxation.
