Boutique talk

Having been in the hospitality industry all the way through college and afterward, and having a husband who is currently rocking it pretty hard, I appreciate all that goes into the biz. Event design ideas come from somewhere, usually interior design trends, so what better place to find this than in boutique hotels? Boutique hotels are artsy, trendy, ________ (ad lib here), and fun... here are some pretty photos for color ideas, textures, themes, etc. and just because I heart boutique hotels!

523 Gravier Street is on the French Quarter edge of the CBD, charming.
