Vegas Inspiration June 15, 2009

I am just back from Las Vegas!  Surprisingly, I came back, not with a million dollars, but with some design inspiration!  I know when you think of Vegas you probably think of neon lights and gaudy showgirl costumes, but you might be surprised at the lovely decorating ideas you can find.  Check this out…

The award for best use of wallpaper…

P6100829This is the entrance to the high limit slots area at the MGM grand.  The wallpaper outside is the same pattern as the wallpaper inside, but a lighter color.  Super classy.

The award for best use of crystal..

P6100832These are small individual crystals suspended by monofilament from the light disk above.  There were about a dozen of these around a circular atrium in the Miracle Mile Mall at the Planet Hollywood.  In the center there was one giant sphere of crystals.  Very impressive.  Notice the raised design on the wall behind the light – love it!

The award for best use of colored glass…

P6090820This is a ceiling containing an abundance of glass bowls made by artist Dale Chihuly.  We found it at the Bellagio.  The picture is a little darker than it is in person, the effect is really amazing.  Check out this giant glass flower that (I assume) is also by Chihuly…

P6090822Ok I realize most people won’t have something like this in their house but its pretty cool!  I was trying to figure out how to make one of those crystal spheres for my dining area…

Finally… our hotel room…

P6090808P6090809P6090810The room was lovely, the beds were comfortable, and the linens were soft.  I just couldn’t help but think, at the MGM Grand, that the rooms should have had a little more Hollywood Regency style.  Can I get a mirrored bedside table, anyone?
