Our concept was a take on The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas's slogan, "Just the Right Amount of Wrong." The goal was to re-energize and set the hotel apart from all others on the Vegas Strip while keeping its mystique. We wanted to introduce playful elements that straddled the fine line between too little and too much, pushing the envelope but only just so.

Art played an integral role in the bringing the rooms to life. Each image in the rooms represents a theater stage featuring a select set of players who introduce ideas to guests as to what the hotel's slogan could mean, playing to their fantasies, while leaving them open to interpretation. Our firm employed numerous special techniques to bring edge and sophistication to the art pieces, which in turn elevated the room, giving them both depth and whimsy.

All the pieces were custom made and incorporate bold concepts. The colors used are subtle and sexy; we used a lot of jewel tones to evoke a sense of luxury. The furniture is very sculptural and define the rooms. There is a canopy over the headboards for example, that has a custom drawn damask pattern by V/S and takes up the entire wall, creating a room within a room.
