As I mentioned yesterday, I am so happy to be a part of the design team for the new Chancellor Hotel in my home state of Arkansas.
Today I am giving you a look at the Chancellor Suite. My goal was to bring a level of sophistication to Arkansas reminiscent of some of my favorite classic hotels in the U.S. like the Carlyle in New York City but infusing my signature colorful style.
Shades of rich turquoise, charcoal, and gold mixed with classic black and white form my color palette for the Chancellor Suite.
I love the Chancellor Logo and I used it like a handsome monogram throughout the suite.
Tobi Fairley Home fabrics make an appearance in drapery including my houndstooth fabric called Edinburgh and my Greek key design used as a border for drapery in the common spaces of the suite.
Arkansas artist Kyle Floyd and Arkansas Photographer Dale Benefield helped me capture University of Arkansas architectural landmarks in the artwork of the suite.
Creating a space that was both handsome and chic and that could act as a perfect “home away from home” for visiting dignitaries and guests to the Fayetteville area was of utmost importance to me.
I am happy to say that I think we achieved this goal.
Here is the space “before” the renovation when it was several hotel rooms from the previous hotel establishment being combined into one luxury suite. The before was built several decades ago. Now the “after” suite as it looks today.
Hope you enjoyed this tour of my hospitality project.
Here’s a fun photo of the hotel owners Ike Thrash and Sam Alley with Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe and me at the grand opening in September.
I will be back on Friday with The Old Main suite.
See you then! Xo, Tobi
