Wall Art

Wall art has taken a whole new meaning. With the mural scene becoming more and more popular in urban culture and major cities, people are bringing that style into the hotel industry. Boutique hotels are incorporating wall art to depict the culture of the city and people are loving it. Imagine the culture and lifestyles of Boulder, Colorado. When you think about Boulder, you think about mountains, hiking, and maybe Google since they have a new location there. Now imagine walking in the guestroom and seeing a beautifully painted mountainous mural on one of the walls. Not only is it thoughtful and unique, it’s the perfect opportunity for local artists to participate and be a part of the community-- not to mention it is extremely Instagramable.

Desert Inspiration

There is something mystical about desert decor. Southwest-inspired designs are popping up left and right throughout the hotel design industry. Cactus plants and succulents make a space more interesting. These decorative plants seem to pull us in as soon as we spot them and seeing a huge cactus in real life at a hotel is pretty mesmerizing. If burnt orange and turquoise colors along with triangle geometric patterns do it for you, then you’re going to love this style.

Jungles, Safaris, and More

In 2018 mythical creatures were all the rage. It’s about time for us to start keeping it real. 2019 has brought out the realism in the animal kingdom. Fantasy figures and inspiration will always have a market, but the more high-end hotels and luxury design tends to point more towards real animal inspiration opposed to fairies and mermaids. Tigers and flamingos are among the most popular searches on the internet in regards to animal searches. We don’t know about flamingo chairs, but using a nice leather and antler combo will sell the animal vibe without a doubt.
