Our first stop is Hawaii, where design studio BHDM dreamt up a very unique plan for their renovation of the Shoreline Hotel Waikiki. With a selection of the boldest shades possible, along with a variety of tropical prints and materials, BHDM’s layout is meant to echo the luscious scenery of the island. “Bringing to life the dramatic landscape and sunsets of Hawaii with a contemporary twist, BHDM’s design for Shoreline incorporates the colors and textures found in the nature and wildlife of Hawaii and filters them through a neon lens,” detailed a statement from the design studio. In the lounge area of the entrance way, hot pink carpeting meets electric yellow, teal, and royal blue seating; cages that hang from the ceiling contain paper birds, and, at night, these fixtures are revealed to be neon lights that bathe the room in a pink and purple glow. The stairwell leading up to the pool deck is covered in a lavender, red, and blue mural, in which tropical flora and fauna twist around tree trunks. The guest rooms themselves contain patterned window shades, rugs, and bedspreads, coming in pink, green, blue, or red. Altogether, the design of this unique hotel is a feast for the eyes. Guests enter a world soaked in color, offering an experience that is truly one of a kind.
We finish with Atrium, a cocktail bar brimming with personality that’s located in downtown Atlanta. Marked by saturated tones of green, pink and gold, its plush design was conceived by Smith Hanes Studio. Upon first arrival, patrons’ eyes are drawn to the mural of ibis birds lining the walls, their feathers radiant in magenta, mustard, and aqua shades. The couches and stools come in various rose colors, velvety in texture. The bar itself glows green, with iridescent tiling covering the foundation and algae-colored paint enveloping its upper cabinetry. The founder of Smith Hanes stated that “the design was inspired by colorful French cafes and Art Deco buildings…[with] lines, colors, shapes, and patterns [that] are fascinating, unafraid, and daring.” When all of these design elements are summed together, the result is a whimsical space, with hints of tropical joviality and daring, art-deco-eccentricity.
