Pantone Hotel

PantoneHotel 01Pantone housewares (ornamentstins, and mugs--oh my!) have been hot items for a while now, but did you know that there is an actual Pantone hotel??  For real.  It's in Belgium.  And it's full of colorful, Pantone-y goodness.  I'm not usually a "hang out in hotel lobbies" kind of person, but I might make an exception in this case.  Also, can you imagine what their gift shop is like?  Pantone heaven, most likely.  Check out more here.

More pics after the jump!

Motel 6 Goes Modern

Modern and Motel 6 are not two words that I typically put together in the same sentence. In fact when I think about a Motel 6 room I cringe at the sea of beige and maroon that washes over me. That is why I was completely shocked to hear that Motel 6 is changing their tune. Shown above is their Phoenix prototype room which is the "now mandatory teimplate for future renovations at all 1,0345 company-owned and franchise properties". Has anyone seen one of these rooms in person? According to the article most Chicago area hotels have already been converted.
