Viva Las Vegas!

A few weeks ago my family celebrated our Mom’s 80th birthday in Las Vegas.  We stayed at The Wynn, checked out a show and played lots of slot machines!  While everything is over-the-top-grand in Sin City, some things that happen in Vegas – like great interior design ideas – should not stay in Vegas.

This leather wall panel is fabulous.  It takes leather wall covering to a new level!

On the right, another great wall panel – a deep, rich, embroidered textile.

This ‘little’ powder room off The Wynn lobby featured an Art Deco vibe.  Beautiful!

LOVED this gold framework detail and vases of red roses against a bold blue background at the end of the lobby hallway to the elevators.  Beautiful textural framed pieces were everywhere.  There was no corner that was inconsequential.   There is a design lesson lurking there.

At The Wynn no detail was overlooked…loved the oversized glass drapery hold backs.  I felt like stopping and calling someone every time I walked past these silver phones that could be found throughout the hotel – just fabulous.

It’s hard not to have a great time in Las Vegas, especially when there is design inspiration all around. We can’t all have choreographed, fountain and light displays in our backyard, but I gathered so much inspiration that could be incorporated into residential design.  It would be a sin not to share!
