Residential design inspires Westin New York at Times Square

The Westin New York at Times Square has unveiled its 126 Atrium rooms, designed by Vicente Wolf featuring colors, textures and furniture that have a residential look.

Wolf chose a blue color palette, complemented by light-wood accents and white linens to make the space feel like home. To further emphasize the residential style, the various shades of blue are balanced with an oversized brushed metal mirror leaning against the wall, as well as a ceiling high headboard and window seat for enjoying views of the city, both designed with textured blue fabric. The light-wood desk is topped with blue glass and joined by a cushioned desk chair, which serves as extra seating.

Continuing the residential-inspired design, the guest room hallways were painted a cool blue-green color and are filled with architectural photos of old New York balanced on picture ledge style-shelves like those found in many homes. The Times Square hotel also offers guests of the Atrium Club rooms such amenities as high-speed wireless Internet access for up to three devices, a 17” Apple iMac computer with wireless mouse and keyboard, daily newspaper delivery, and L'Occitane bath amenities.
