As an interior design intern, I was asked to pick out accessories that would compliment the design to give to the hotel upon completion as a guideline. The layout started in a reception area which included a waiting area as well as seats for minor treatments of hair and nails. After going through a two door pathway, the space then opens into individual rooms that either accomodate two people or one. The styles of these rooms vary from modern to south east asian. I picked items such as candle holders and vases with simple designs that were elegant yet complimented the style that each room was designed in.
