I'm back from a very fun weekend in Las Vegas. Carter and I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of our good friends Julianne and David, and it was wonderful!

Vegas is certainly a feast for the eyes (mostly in a good way) and I enjoyed walking into the different hotels/casinos and soaking up their decor. Nothing is understated in Vegas and I loved seeing all of the exaggerated interiors, but my favorite was definitely the Wynn casino. 

I had been to Vegas once before, but I don't recall being inside the Wynn...this time we met up with some friends there for breakfast and I was so impressed - I couldn't stop looking at the beautiful surroundings...and I of course took some pictures of some of my favorite views:

I think the ceilings were definitely the best part...I love the pattern shown here that was repeated throughout the hotel...

Another amazing ceiling view...beautiful light fixtures!  Note those upside-down parasol-looking ones...

A close-up of the parasol fixtures...gorgeous against that brown ceiling.

This was the view from our table...I was staring at this gorgeous (ENORMOUS) lantern...and again, the ceiling was beautiful.

Striped, tassled curtains - loved them!

This was my absolute favorite view - more of the beautiful parasol fixtures - this time in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes - a whimsical Chinoiserie display! I wanted to stare at them all day.

Close-up..aren't they gorgeous?

This is the view when you walk into the hotel - a tree-lined little courtyard with gorgeous flower balls hanging from the branches in all of the many colors of the hotel. It's so beautiful to look at (although this picture does not do it justice).

The Wynn was the highlight of the weekend decor-wise...the rest of the weekend we spent having a great time with our friends...and I dragged Carter from slot machine to slot machine. I could spend hours watching those little windows spin...problem is, the windows only spin if you feed the machine money :( I eventually had to give up that form of entertainment.

Hope you all had a great weekend and a good start to the week!


  1. Such wonderfully over-the-top decor, and with an interesting Regency feeling to it, like an update of the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.

  2. This post is the only thing that has ever made me want to visit Las Vegas. Not really, it would be my idea of hell, but this place is fabulous.

  3. I am with Style Redux. My husband is there later this week and you couldn't pay me to go with him. (Although sitting poolside doesn't sound so bad at the moment.) But, these views are beautiful, even if over the top. After all, that's Vegas, right? Glad you had a great trip!

  4. Love the parasol fixtures-the rooms are just over the top gorgeous-hope your vacation was lots of fun!
    best, Barbara

  5. Wow! Those ceilings are stunning! I would love to go to Vegas...what fun!

  6. These ceilings are to die for!!!!! soo gorgeous!


  7. These are BEAUTIFUL! I've never seen hangings quite like them before what a stunning touch for a special event.

  8. I fell in love with the Wynn when I visited 4 years ago. It's stunning in person and I've been dying to go back and see encore! I have many of these exact same photos!!
