I’M GOING TO HAVE TO SAY “NO.”

I admit that I would genuinely like this for a nightclub, some kind of lounge and maybe for a restaurant… Maybe for a restaurant.  But, I couldn’t live in this place. 

Now don’t get offended if you could.  I am capable of grasping how some might find this appealing.  It’s — how to put it? — “Busy.” Lots of energy here. I wouldn’t say that it lacks a focal point but, um, but it kind of lacks a focal point.  There’s just so much going on, this clash of lines, shapes & textures, there’s always something to catch your eye, drag it from whatever you’re looking at. 

It’s all so stressful!

For a nightclub, a bar — some sort of hang out place — I can see where it would all be good.  With the energy levels cranked to 11, the space says “Party” or “Drink” or “Join in the mosh pit,” all things I wouldn’t want for my home.  Or, as in this case, a hotel. I wouldn’t want to sleep here. I’d much prefer the soothing Art Deco with it’s soft, rounded (dare I say, “Organic”?) contours.  Or maybe Japanese Modern where the classic symmetry of Asian design is cleansed of it’s ornamentation, leaving a clean, stress free space.  And, of course, there’s Mid Century Modern, which could almost be mistaken for the Japanese Modern at times, except for it’s playful incorporation of contrasts and it’s lack of dedication to symmetry. 

Hate it or enjoy it, folks.  It’s your call.
