The Harmon Room
If you have a Netflix subscription and you loved to binge-watch The Queen’s Gambit like me, then this next destination should definitely be on your travel list. The worlds of design, cinematography, and hospitality, collide for an immersive experience unlike any other. If you’re a fashionista and design enthusiast like me, then you lived for the revival of retro- style presented in The Queens Gambit. From Harmon’s mod-inspired wardrobe to the 60’s inspired backdrops, the series had no shortage of Instagramable moments.
Inspired by the popular mini-series, 21C Museum Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky now has a Queen’s Gambit Inspired room available. The authentic location where the story took place is home to the author who wrote the original book, the main character and chess master, Beth Harmon.
Curated in the retro style aesthetic that characterized the scenography of the series, The Harmon Room at 21C, makes the series come to life. Styled based on the elements of the era, the designers of this mid-century modern 1960’s space use maximalism as their aesthetic. You will find plenty of retro patterns, colors, and textures mixed with wood tones. Vintage décor pieces and antiques are included at every turn. Fashion enthusiasts will recognize the mod color palette of bold green and yellow combinations from that time. The geometric-patterned wallpaper was also custom-designed to feature a chess motif. Even the textured rug, comes in its very owns shade of blue tactile fabric. In keeping with the theme of Art Hotels, for which 21C is known, the Harmon room features its very own Art Installation, modeled after the famous dream scene from the movie. Guess will find themselves enamored by the large three-dimensional chess pieces hanging from the ceiling, as part of a life-size chessboard.
To offer an even more curated experience, the stay is equipped with tours of the Lexington landmarks featured in the miniseries. The room will only be available for a limited time. So, book your experience now!!
