“Britannia Rose” is a unique immersive art concept created for the latest set of bedrooms launched at The Megaro.
Each Britannia Rose room has a warm, dramatic design scheme in five shades of red and pink inspired by classic red grape varieties: Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sangiovese and Tempranillo.
Rooms also come with super-fast wi-fi plus full Sky package, complimentary water, Illy coffee, fresh milk in the fridge, magazines, power shower and toiletries.

The common thread of the interior design is the Magenta colour taken from the pigments of newly-made wine and the roses often planted in vineyards. It also refers to a deeper narrative about the steam-age past of Kings Cross, its coal and gas industry and the derivative chemical products made from it. It alludes too at the forthcoming restaurant and bar that the hotel will introduce in a few months.
The wallpaper ‘in vino veritas’ has been specially designed by British artist Henry Chebaane as backdrop to his interior design concept: a contrasting juxtaposition of interrelated themes about the cycles of wine production and consumption overlaid with a Victorian steampunk feel.
The graphics include a flock of butterflies made of wine stains, which have also been reproduced as dozens of actual objects in printed aluminium populating the ceilings around an iconic light pendant by Foscarini.
This light and shadow sculptural installation in each room is called ‘born of flowers’ and symbolises the interdependency of humans, insects and the botanical world.
The artist hopes that his art installation will help raise awareness about butterflies, bees and other animals, which are essential for the pollination of our crops but are in dangerous decline in Britain and elsewhere. The nourishment we get from food and wine depends on the well-being of small creatures that we too often take for granted.
