Hostel vs Hotel – Switzerland Part 2 – Design

As promised… Here is the color palette for my Hostel vs. Hotel blog. On my past visual journey blog, we climbed the alps to visit The Riffelalp m2222.  We saw the pine wood and reds throughout this high-end hotel. Notice the colors displayed in this palette.
