Q&A

How does the design of your space (or an element of the design) impact the experiences people have there?

"I believe our space allows people feel like they are in Austin. Our goal was to create a space that reflected the spirit of east Austin with a blending of styles and influences from around the world. The scale and design encourages people to relax, interact and appreciate their surroundings by creating an environment that is appealing to guests of all ages and backgrounds."
Q&A

What is the interior design style of your space?

"The interior design of our hotel is centered around the mid-century movement and the clean lines of our building’s architecture. We were inspired by the vivid coloring and bold color blocks of Wes Anderson movie sets and design elements from artists in the '60s and '70s."
Q&A

What Custom/Original Element do your guests notice most often? What do they say about it?

"The art throughout the hotel is probably what our guests notice most often. Whether it be the three dimensional art piece in the restaurant, the custom original paintings, our Moroccan inspired bar tables or our custom murals - East Austin hotel is filled with original art and blends the ingredients from many cultures, life experiences and backgrounds."
Q&A

What was the biggest source of inspiration?

"We drew inspiration from the wonderful, multicultural and vibrant area of East Austin. The neighborhood is filled with street art, colors and textures. It was important to bring that energy into our space. The entire team was mindful that we were designing a comfortable, welcoming and inclusive place. Three distinctly different styles of rooms speak to the different needs of all our guests."
Q&A

Who did you love working with on this space? Any memorable moments or unique craftsmen?

"I was fortunate to work with so many talented Austin artists and craftsmen to create one of a kind pieces throughout the hotel. Artist Nancy Johnson created all the art for the hotel rooms as well as the restaurants and public spaces. Tom O'Neill built and tiled our restaurant tables and make custom console tables for each of our hotel rooms. Mural artist Jason Eatherly painted the murals on the exterior of our building. Pablo Miller completed all the resin tables in our restaurants and restored many of our mid-century pieces of furniture. Shay Spaniola created original patterns for our custom drapery. Robin Kelley sourced all of our unique one of a kind lighting fixtures and wonderful textiles."
