I saw the image of this reception area, whilst flicking through the March/April 2011 issue of Vogue Living (Australia)...again, and loved the colours. It's at Honolulu's newest hotel, The Waikiki Edition, and the "collage" of broken surfboards includes donations from the likes of Kelly Slater. Now, even I know who he is!
The hotel is a collaboration between Marriott Hotels and Ian Schrager - the man behind New York's Morgans, Paramount, Royalton and Gramercy Park and The Delano in Miami...how many trends in hotels did The Delano set?!
All guests are provided colourful sarongs and a ukelele in their room - my girls would LOVE it!
With Honolulu and Istanbul open, and Barcelona, Mexico City, Bangkok, South Beach, London due to open soon, it will be interesting to see how Ian Schrager's style works with a big hotel chain, such as Marriott.
I know I could do with a bit of this right now x.
