This design for the Intercontinental Hotel in Dakar, Senegal by Louise Nogueira is heaven on Earth. The modern aesthetic is tempered with Senegalese idioms, from vibrant colors to tribal murals. The light color scheme used in the lounge and lobby areas is almost ethereal, while the color-popping guest bedrooms are contemporary and chic.
