Welcome to a candy inspired experience at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards® Official Talent Gift Lounge. Rihanna, LL Cool J, Maroon 5, Chris Brown, The Band Perry, Jason Aldean and many more experienced “a sweet escape” between rehearsals here, and indulged in what the best of Hollywood has to offer. This year, I had the pleasure to join Distinctive Assets and event producer, Pam Morrison, to make this very special place.
In designing this lounge, I wanted to create something fanciful that stimulated a child-like excitement in the talent, yet was still sophisticated and edgy to appeal to their rock-star tastes. Candy colors and the experience of being in a sweet shop was my inspiration. Monumental pink architectural arches and a black & white checkerboard floor were introduced to bring a modern edge to this whimsical place.
I hope you will enjoy the photos!
