Oregon Symphony Suite

The Heathman Hotel – Portland, Oregon

Services: Complete Interior Design, costume TV wall box, credenza & furniture, custom wall & door treatments, custom room marquee.

Project: Take a murphy bed style guestroom parlor and into into a dramatic and luxurious themed experience signature suite honoring the hotel's commitment to one of Portland's greatest treasures: The Oregon Symphony.

Results: Set the table for front row dining and peruse the display case that features symphony artifacts such as antique metronomes, one of Carlo’s conducting wands, and programs from former performances. On the same wall there are two large bell jars filled with whimsical art pieces inspired by my love of music, one of which is a hurricane of butterflies that remind me of the graceful notes swelling to fill a symphony hall.

One of the most prominent center pieces of the room should incite passion in any music loving guest. On the Broadway facing wall of the living room area a cello emerges from the wall with copper strings and a tree-like sculpture reaching beyond the limits of the 10ft ceiling. The branches consist of metal intricately sculpted into copper leaves intimating notes of music.

The Heathman Hotel Voted one of Travel + Leisure's Best Hotels in the World and selected as a Conde Nast top U.S. Hotel 2012
