This western-influenced event, which includes the Buffalo Bill arts auction, a patrons ball and the Western Design Conference, drew designers from around country.This year, local designer Beth Slifer will gave a presentation on design for western hospitality.”The development and integration of a theme is very important in hospitality design,” Slifer said. “The theme should create a sense of place and it should feel like an escape from the primary home. The proliferation of a theme will ensure a consistent, tranquil feeling throughout the property which will leave a wonderful, lasting impression.”Quality, comfort, style, amenities and space are all very important in successful hospitality design,” Slifer added. “Fortunately, when large space is not available, it can be compensated for by proximity to recreational amenities like ski mountains, bodies of water, golf courses or the rolling hills of wine country.Slifer shared photographs of Slifer Designs hospitality projects from all over the country, including the Tuscany-inspired Mayacama Resort in Sonoma County, Calif.; the Snowmass Club; the rustic Teton Club in Jackson Hole; the Roaring Fork Club in Aspen; and Red Sky Ranch Club in Cordillera. The most recent hospitality project in the company’s portfolio is the remodeling of the Country Club of the Rockies in Arrowhead.The annual, three-day Western Design Conference is a marketing venue for designers to showcase their work in furniture, home accessories, fashion and jewelry.
