Studio 11 Design updates hotel’s accommodations

The 350-key Westin Pasadena hotel will take the wraps off a new guest room design on Sept. 1. The property, which is owned by Watermark Capital and managed by HEI Hotels & Resorts, brought in Studio 11 Design, cover subject of Boutique Design’s May 2016 issue, to create the accommodations' new look.

Project participants say the new rooms in the 12-story locale will be home to a variety of features evoking the hotel’s locale. For example, corridor carpet patterns will mimic the silhouette of Pasadena City Hall, translated in an abstract style that mirrors the images like an inkblot. In addition, the rooms will feature custom angled desks shaped like the state of California, with a faint marker in the inlaid wood indicating the location of Pasadena, as well as custom roller shades with a stitch detail outline of City Hall.

Pattern inspiration for the rooms was derived from local architecture and the nearby San Gabriel Mountains. Designers say two-toned woods, paired with brushed brass and high-contrast white surfaces, add depth and interest to the spaces.
