Visions of Pastel

With every season that comes, the team at Elite Productions International takes it upon themselves to creatively challenge themselves with a distinctive, while aesthetically pleasing design concept for their showroom. This summer was no different - with a varied display of elements and an energetic color palette making quiet the statement. 
While most summer design tropes revolve around patriotic displays of "red, white, and blue" or more whimsical imagery like "pineapples" or "flamingos", Elite decided on a different approach. Pastels, according to CEO and Creative Director Lili Shadab, were the main inspiration behind the look: "Spring and Summer are a wonderful reminder of all things soft and pretty! The abundance of pink blossoms in spring and the aqua blue tones of ocean water in the summer are what inspired this season's direction. This palette makes me think of the fabulous designs of the Hotel Bel-Air in the 1970's - everyone was drenc…

Introducing "Greenery" - Pantone Color of the Year

Introducing "Greenery", Pantone, the self-professed "Color Institute", declares at the 2017 "Color of the Year". So, what exactly is a "Color of the Year"? Since 2000, Pantone has chosen a specific color and hue (in this case "Pantone 15-0343") as a "symbolic color selection" or rather a "snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude".
After last year's 2016 colors of the year, "Rose Quartz" and "Serenity", "Greenery" comes as a fresh and revitalizing tone for the year - symbolizing an energetic new beginning. Perhaps the most obvious evocation for the color is nature itself - "greenery" omnipresent throughout the natural world - luscious foliage, deep pastures of grass, and wild forestry. Color experts at Pantone reflect, "Greenery is nature's neutral". 
Here, a bountiful table scape, is on di…

Mid-Century Modern Lounge

As the saying goes, “home is wherever I lay my hat” – and in the case of the modern businessman’s case, that would be the countless hotel rooms frequented for conferences and networking events. The uniform and neutral landscape that often comprises hotel interiors may not leave a notable impression on guests. When orchestrating a corporate conference with executives coming from all reaches from the globe, a profound impression is the desired effect to leave on event attendees.

The team at Elite Productions International was called upon for the task of creating a welcoming, yet stimulating atmosphere in the foyer of a hotel ballroom. The space was available for corporate businessmen - who would be spending a majority of their time between conference events networking, conducting business, and even using it for leisure.

Through use of furniture, décor, lighting, and floral elements, Elite Productions International successfully transformed the foyer. Using “Mid-Century Modern” as an inspi…
