As you step inside the W Chicago Lakeshore hotel, the black-and-white motif peaked my interest in seeing more. The W Chicago Lakeshore hotel is filled with beautiful plants. Nestled in the coastal city, near Lake Michigan, it’s reminiscent of Italy and seaside towns near the Mediterranean.

The marble floor boasts of streaks of gray and black and leads you around this palatial venue that has the architecture of a church. Meyer Davis Design didn’t miss a beat when they unveiled the $38 million renovation last summer. Ahh! So European.

You simply can’t ignore the sounds streaming from the DJ’s tracks curated to spur you to move energetically. There are moments when you feel quite Parisian and as if you’re walking a fashion runway. Tummys in, chests out … your posture changes as does your swagger and sway as you feel your inner celebrity come forth. Even the most ordinary understand that this something special taking place in the environment.

The décor is so charming. The white glows. The gray and black ooze status and power.

Upon opening the door and walking through having walked through a black, totally black hallway one will see more chrome and more black conveyed in an artistic manner. The chandelier will be clear with the chrome base. And the walls and the comforter will once again reunite the attitude of success and design and a special moment in the bedroom. This is continued throughout the dining room at the W it continues throughout the entire field walk-through steel can be felt.

That is a classic field that doesn’t delve into necessarily a ’60s or ’70s vibe, but instead uses the presence of color simplistically to elongate the value of the color, which ranges from grays to black silvers, to grays almost black to purple hues that are found within the room.

The W Lakeshore is classic. From top to bottom but it isn’t edge of classic that robot requires an interpretation of cool and I do request for balance and understanding of it that’s action taking place. Not boring and still but with movement inside the wallpaper that can be seen. Everything is giving directions heading someplace, whether it is the marble in the floor the movement of the walls the placement of the chandeliers leading toward the beautiful view looking outside at the lake Lake Michigan.

The W Chicago Lakeshore is an exhibition of classic monotones that are crisp, cool and relaxing.
