Clearly things are looking up in the design industry. I just returned from a week in Las Vegas – my first ever visit there, but that’s fodder for an entirely different blog post – at the Hospitality Design Expo. What struck me immediately was the color everywhere! Couches decked out in bright yellow and hot pink, wall coverings in peacock blue, bright red faucets, turquoise bathtubs…you name it! If it was standing, hanging, lying or installed on a wall, it was covered in some Crayola inspired hue to amp the fun factor. Even Jeffrey Frank, the National Sales Manager for Brentano in the space opposite us, was sporting a tomato colored blazer…and he looked amazing! The energy was great, the designs were off the hook and everyone seemed to be having a good time.
