    In Appreciation of Chicago

    Was looking for something to post today but kept coming up empty handed. Until now....

    In appreciation of Chicago and the years I've spent here....

    a city chalked full of inspiring architecture,

    by the sandy shores of the great lake,

    a silent but formidable force tempered and centered,

    strong and beautiful, friendly, reasonable, clean and classical

    among flashy others which always go noticed,

    but here we quietly do what we do with strength and vigor

    modesty and passion....

    Why Complicate Things...


    The London Edition Hotel

    What was once old is now new again....allow me to introduce the latest hotel opening from the Edition brand - The London Edition Hotel. Of course, the recipe for this hotel calls for authenticity and originality. Just open up the old kitchen pantry and you'll find all kinds of goodness mixed into this hotel. Think historic, Edwardian Era architecture, English gentleman's club, aristocratic grandeur balanced against an "energetic modern interior" with various spots to soak up the architecture and scene. For a more information about this new 173-guestroom hotel, check out this article

    Of course, you can book your stay at The London Edition hotel here! 


    Bathroom Before and After

    I wanted to take some time to share some before and after photos of a bathroom gut renovation we completed recently in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago, IL. Everything was ripped out - tile flooring, bathroom vanity, vanity lighting, glass blocks, shower hardware, tile floor and wall, toilet, mirror, towel bars...yes, we completely demolished the bathroom to make way for a brand new custom bathroom. 

    Take a look... BEFORE

    The new bathroom we designed features a marble shower with custom tile pattern, custom shower with showerhead and hand shower, new zinc vanity, new fixtures and hardware, mirror, etc.

    Hotel Alfonso XIII in Seville, Spain

    Originally built as the premier hotel to accommodate royalty and heads of state in 1928 for the Iber-American Exposition, Hotel Alfonso XIII in Seville, Spain has recently undergone a renovation.  The hotel is named after the king who commissioned its construction and the architecture reflects Spain’s past, blending Moorish, Castilian and Andalusian styles. Luckily, at the request of guests and focus-groups, many of the original details have been preserved. Stone arches, brickwork, wrought-iron balustrades, frescoes, crown moldings, and ornamental wood carvings have been left untouched allowing the beauty of the past to remain intact for today’s guests. 

    Various dining venues on the property with settings that range from poolside/gardens to central courtyard offer guests a spot to sample everything from Lebanese cuisine to Spanish tapas to International gastronomic specialties. The Taifas restaurant serves up some of the best Mediterranean cuisine attracting both guests and locals.  If you’re looking for some specialty, hand-shaken cocktails, you’ll want to kick back at the American Bar post sight-seeing.

    Today and for over 85 years Hotel Alfonso XIII has been a gem and showcase hotel for travelers all over the world to experience the exclusive richness and beauty of Seville, Spain. 


    Sit back and relax

    After such a busy week, it's nice to have a relaxing weekend...


    ME Madrid Reina Victoria Hotel in Madrid, Spain

    Located within the center of Madrid in a historically grand building, formerly the Gran Hotel Reina Victoria, ME Madrid Reina Victoria has it all. Stunning rooftop views and…well, a stunning rooftop set within, or perhaps more precisely on top of, the building’s architectural majesty creates a perfect setting to take in the sights and lights of Madrid, Spain.

    When we get to the guestrooms, they appear to have fantastic views of Madrid and the more upscale suites even have private terraces for sunning or soaking in the plunge pool. Large elaborate bathrooms, some opening up to the outdoors, offer modern luxury to its guests. Oversized windows allow natural light to filter into the guestrooms giving a more “homey” than hotel feel to the space. 

    The public areas have a mid-century vibe and offer guestrooms lots of spots to lounge and socialize.

    Next time you are in Madrid, even if you don’t stay at ME Madrid Reina Victoria, definitely pop on up to the rooftop for a cocktail at dusk. 




    Happy Friday, folks! All these spaces have an element of fierceness in their own right. Either fierce art, fierce lighting, fierce furniture, fierce colors, or fierce accessories and sculptures. I hope you have a fierce weekend.

    Hotel Zetta in San Francisco

    Hotel Zetta, the latest addition to Viceroy Hotel Group’s collection, is housed in a neo-classical building and one of San Francisco’s newest hotels. It opened its doors to guests and locals alike this June 2013... and the keywords here are "and locals alike". The public spaces of boutique Hotel Zetta are chalked full of playful décor and areas where you can actually play. Take for example the lofted Playroom which allows you to shoot pool, try your hand at shuffleboard, or get in a game of Atari and Nintendo. The massive Plinko wall (ummmm, yeah – my favorite The Price is Right game) in the lobby definitely sets the tone and screams “go get your play on”! Figuratively, of course. Because they so cheekily meshed old with new, once again...of course, they outfitted an antique British phone booth with Skype. 

    When we move into the guestrooms, we get hit in the “face” with crazy cool ORIGINAL art comprised of old floppy disks (love the contextual reference to SF).  The 116 guestrooms are eclectic with a blend of styles and it seems to work nicely. Warm woods and a de-structured Oriental rug bring a welcoming, causal vibe to the space. Of course, the room is a safe haven for the tech-savvy guest with web-enabled flat screens that allow you to catch up on emails or that Netflix movie you paused, all accessible from your smartphone or tablet device.  

    The minds, designers, and planners behind this hotel incorporated a lot of strategic thinking, resulting in a final “act” which weaves together a contextual, clever, and novel experience.  I must say…well played Hotel Zetta, well played!
