Michelle Morelan from A Schematic Life, Nancy DeVries and I started our trip to Seattle with a little shopping at the outlets until we got downtown and checked into the Hotel Max. A great, artistic little hotel with a W feel.
It’s rare to see the analogous colour combination of red and orange together in the same space but paired with the charcoal tones, it worked very well.
Check out the doors in the hallways, and the great striped carpeting! One of the most interesting hotel hallways I’ve seen!
This was the sushi restaurant attached to the hotel also done in red.
The next day we arrived at the Seattle Design Center where we attended a course led by Mary Knackstedt. Michelle did a great re-cap of the course, click here for the details. Then we toured the center and I snapped some photos so you can feel like you were there with me!!
I loved this grouping of tulips from the Robert Allen showroom:
And the feeling of this piece!
Everything looks better on a square acrylic pedestal, like this great piece of periwinkle blue coral!
There was clearly a coral theme in this showroom!
I liked the velvet and leather combination on this sofa.
Love this wing chair by Victoria Hagen:
And I have always loved this chandelier from Donghia.
Conran Window Coverings, don’t they look wonderful?
The showroom for Ebanista is so beautiful, they have wonderful artwork, gorgeous lighting. . .
