From drab to fab!

How to transform a large, open hotel conference room into as space that has the WOW factor!?

That was my challenge in Vancouver for the Winter Olympics.

My clients brief was to create a space that their guests would feel warm and comfortable, using the corporate colors and logos as much as possible, and all within a very tight budget. All the while adhering to the strict safety guidelines and access allowances of the hotel…it was a bit of a juggle!

The room had to be used for various events, meetings, cocktails and dining throughout the day, a very busy space. But with areas of quiet comfort so guests could remove themselves to relax.

Just see for yourself what can be achieved with some soft furnishings, draping and decorative touches. And of course don’t ever forget the golden rule…..Great lighting is everything!!
