While the concept of Hotelements was born years ago over a cocktail and a napkin, the path to following our passion has not been without its share of bumps and hiccups. Several false starts, a near-fatal accident and the impossible task of balancing life and business has tested our strength.  But true passion doesn’t die, it will just kick your butt along the way…making it all the more sweet when it comes to life!

Hotel spaces, and how the overall experience makes me feel. It’s an immediate emotional connection.  All the senses are ignited and a feeling of inspiration and creativity take over…always.  I’ve been asking friends, clients, and acquaintances the same question for years… ‘Have you ever walked into a hotel lobby, restaurant or guest room and thought, how can I bring this experience home with me?’ The answer is either; OMG…Yes, I feel that way every time. Or; My husband and I always wonder how we can recreate this experience at home? Seriously, just like that.


Get a flavor of what we have been building and are so excited to share…

Do any design elements draw you in? Color? Lighting? Texture? Style? Have you stayed here before?
