Ovolo, one of Hong Kongs leading owner-operators of luxury serviced apartments, has upgraded its latest property at 222 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan.

The new interiors feature tasteful and calming colour palates with open glass box showers, marble bathrooms and Light Fantastic mood lighting.

Complementing the makeover is cutting-edge technology including Apple TVs, IPAD/POD Docking System to watch movies on the TV and play music, 42-inch plasma TVs, wireless high-speed Internet and Cable television. Other entertainment features include WII, X-Box and DVD library.

The renovations were overseen by interior design director Bun Ho, with styling by Mrs. Toland Sherriff of Domain Ltd.

The apartments previously lacked almost any colour or variation in texture, making them seem quite flat and unwelcoming, said Mrs. Toland. I wanted to bring a feeling of tactile and visual richness that was lacking. The new colour scheme of dark greyish-brown taupes with shots of purple provides interest and contrast to the white walls and black floors.

To provide warmth and comfort, ultra suede, velvets and linens were incorporated. Cole & Son Wallpaper was a starting point to add interest to walls, with accent pieces from iconic textile designer Florence Broadhurst for pop and Ilsa Crawford for fashion.

Tiled mirrored walls in both the bedroom and entrance way give a shot of modern glamour while opening up the space visually.

Priced from HK$32,000-38,000 a month, the 1-bedroom, 650 sq ft apartments now offer a seductive choice for discerning urbanites in this vibrant new commercial and lifestyle hub, said Ovolo founder Girish Jhunjhnuwala. We have Ovolo-ized 222 Hollywood Road, letting guests live the Ovolo lifestyle.

Ovolo is one of the largest privately owned players in the buoyant Hong Kong serviced apartment sector, with a total of 245 apartments in six buildings on Hong Kong Island - 63 trend-setting designer apartments opening in 2011 in the upcoming metropolis of West Kowloon.

The Ovolo portfolio extends to 111 High Street, Sai Ying Pun; its flagship Manhattan-style complex at 2 Arbuthnot Road, Central; 286 Queens Road targeting a younger expatriate crowd; and 100 Shek Pai Wan Road, in upcoming Tin Wan.

Beyond the Ovolo brand, the group also operates boutique serviced offices under the brand name izi at 151 Hollywood Road, Central and is converting a redundant industrial building next door to Ocean Park into a boutique hotel.
