Kelly Wearstler talks about hotel room design.

Andrea's room, on the other hand, did not demonstrate her best work thus far. If anything, it looked a bit like one of Michael's rooms, where the color choices actually drain energy instead of the other way around. The grass was an imaginative but awkward choice, and the banquet zapped the room of any warmth a few comfortable chairs might have lent it.

I have designed many a hotel room. Budgets aside, there are so many obstacles inherent to designing for the hotel occupant. Today's busy traveler expects luxury, ease, and that feeling of being in a room you wish you never had to check out of. That's the affect Matt's room had over me. Congratulations on your upcoming Metropolitan Home magazine spread, Matt!
