ALL THE (DESIGN) WORLD’S A STAGE
For this project, I was asked to “stage” a two-bedroom condo for a developer who would rent them out as apartment-hotel suites to a large corporation. I had about one week to pull it off and it was a lot of running around but a lot of fun.
Instead of using the space designed for the dining room, I decided to make a little dinette area next to the kitchen bar. This was more functional for hotel guests and also allowed me to expand the living room space.
The choice of floor and shower tiles would probably not have been even my third choice but sometimes when you have to work with something, you end up with something fabulous that you never would have considered. After it was finished I loved the way it all came together – including the tiles. The “W” on the guest towel is for the name of the street.
The bedrooms are intentionally masculine (as will be the guests) which is reflected in the dark wood furniture and colour schemes.
This condo featured a spacious corridor that was perfect for a console table, mirror, glass sculpture and some artwork. Whether you are arriving or leaving, it looks great.
