Thank You For Sleeping With Us: Malena Permentier of Fashion Container

Fashion and travel blogger, who is based out of Amsterdam, Malena Permentier of Fashion Container slept with MySuites at one of their Chelsea boutique hotels this winter–The Chelseagold. To get a better idea of what we do at our design studio, she did a Q&A with us. If you’ve ever been curious about learning more about our story and our vision, head over to “Get into details with MySuites & Co.”

Excerpts from the interview:

All about the details

Attention to detail really is the first thing that meets the eye when entering the Chelseagold apartment we stayed at. The hall way that leads to the living room features wooden shelves mixed with crips white walls and art art works carefully arranged over the space. A few home decor details that we adored? A fire place with marble tiling, industrial inspired lights next to the gallery wall with black and white frames and the characteristic wooden details found throughout the space.

Projects & Favourites

When asked about My Suites & Co projects and favourites, the team points out that The Chelseagold (our apartment, ha!) is actually by far their favourite done until date. Developed in the summer of 2015 in the heart of Chelsea, the place was merely a distressed studio in a beautiful boutique building. “We saw something in the humble space and knew it had huge layout potential. It is the perfect example of what we look for when renovating in NYC: small, meager apartments that we know we can transform into innovative urban design suites for style-minded owners.””

As the real estate market in NYC surges, MS&Co. designs and develops in a prime time. Any space we design will not only be exceptional, but will add up in value. “We have found that buyers are willing to pay a huge premium on anything we design and develop.”

Being an Amsterdam based team, FashionContainer is curious about My Sutes & Co’s plans for the future and whether have plans to take on projects outside New York. They in fact do! “We plan to take on projects in London and Los Angeles. We’ll continue focusing on developing small boutique hotel concepts, such as My Suites. Currently, we only work with ‘angel investors’ in order to accomplish our creations.”
