Life In A Luxury Hotel

Life In A Luxury Hotel

I recently took a small vacation to Naples Florida with my husband back in January of this year. We stayed at the wonderful Ritz-Carlton Resort.
As soon you enter the lobby you could tell why this is a five-star resort

The interiors were pure luxury. The design of the hotel was not your typical Florida hotel design. They didn’t use what you would expect of pastel beach colors. The only flamingo pink I could found was in the gift shop.
The design of the hotel was more of my style of new traditional chic. Formal furniture that has clean lines, with comfort in mind, the use of luxury fabrics, and beautiful lighting. Always a little sparkle.
Want to be inspired to have luxury hotel interiors? Here is way to incorporate in your home.

Keep it simple don’t over clutter the room with furnishing and accessories.

As a designer, I recommend to achieve the new traditional style that the furniture is a classic silhouette with new details.

For seating furniture, it’s about comfort and clean lines.

I will tell you that lighting is always importing. I love to add a little sparkle. With finishes and details for example, crystals in chandeliers, metal finishes, and glass bases or shades. The sparkle makes the room sings.

When it comes to window treatments new traditional style is not heavy drapery and eliminate swag valence. Keep it simple.

I love how they built a valence around the window treatment, so you cannot see the hardware.
This was one of the only Florida details that I could find in the resort with stationary shutters.

In the bath can we say marble. The marble has a glossy finish that adds a little sparkle. A glam mirror with backlighting will make anybody look gorgeous. If you have room to add a water closet for privacy, how luxurious is that?

Let’s talk about the bed, I think the biggest trend I’ve been seeing for the past five years is beautiful oversize upholster headboards. Wouldn’t you love to have breakfast in bed delivered to you this bed?

Luxury living doesn’t have to be an expensive hotel vacation. You can also have that five-star hotel design in your home.

I must thank the staff at the Ritz-Carlton Naples Florida resort. The staff at the resort was so friendly, polite, professional, and always had a smile. They treated us like we were the most important guest that was staying at the hotel.
Special thanks to Danielle Travis the public relations manager at the resort for allowing me access to fresh room for my photos.

Artprize Time

You can tell when its fall in Grand Rapids Mi. Artprize begins and the city becomes electric with beautiful works of art. I enjoy this time of year and always look forward to it as a volunteer for Artprize every year. I can feel the energy as downtown takes on a new vibe. Michiganders and tourists make a year ritual out of the event and meet for dinner and take in some art. It brings artists from all over the world to compete in the worlds largest art competition and tourist now make it a destination stop each fall.

This is a good opportunity to find new pieces of art work that you can add to your home or office collection. In many cases the artist are present with the art work and educates you on the back story of the pieces. If you like the artist’s work they may have a website for you to review and have more of a selection. Some artist may be on exhibit in a local gallery year around which is also a great way to check out more of their art.

Most of the exhibitors know they will not win the grand prize of $200,000, but they all walk away as winners in many cases because of the exposure. This adds up in new sales later in the future for the artist with new requests for their art pieces.

This is one thing I love about Grand Rapids.
