Sage Hotel James Street, Fortitude Valley
An antidote to glitzy hospitality, Sage Hotel James Street engaged some of the country’s best-known names to create its contemporary boutique space. Dinosaur Designs jewellery pieces can be found on the hotel staff (and littered around the crisp, sleek rooms) and plush, innovative MOKUM fabrics are in every room. Another hint of its modern lean? The soothing abundance of polished concrete.
