The MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is in the midst of remodeling the guestrooms in its Studio Tower. Slated for completion later this winter, the 700 accommodations are being reimagined with a retro midcentury aesthetic amplified with sumptuous color.
MGM Resorts International Design Group has partnered with Los Angeles-based Avenue Interior Design on the transformation. “Many of the main sources of inspiration for this renovation were based on the romantic ideas that accompany an adventurous getaway to a desert oasis,” says Avenue senior project designer MacKenzie Bergeron. “You escape the mundane and arrive in an exciting new environment that elevates your mood and awakens your senses.”
Elevator lobbies will also be upgraded to complement the refreshed rooms, which will be appointed with neon signage and curvaceous sofas installed upon ombré carpet. A desert palette of refreshing pink and chartreuse greens will accentuate clean lines and soft shapes, including rounded window seats and enlarged headboards. Globe sconces will also illuminate geometric furnishings and distinctive artwork that enliven chambers. Stylish, space-saving barn doors will partition bathrooms outfitted with marble shower doors and chrome fixtures.
“What makes this design successful is that it sets a tone, but in an implied way without an abundance of theming,” adds Avenue cofounder Ashley Manhan Justman. “In this capacity, it transports each guest into an era that they can further define themselves during their visit. You could say it’s a subtly transformative experience.”
