Design consultant, founder, and president of Chemical Spaces, Mark Tracy, has established a reputation that precedes him – part in thanks to his eye-catching designs. Based primarily out of Las Vegas, the Rumor Hotel owners made the call to designer after seeing what had been accomplished at the Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas.
The vision was not always as clear as day, as the originally Tracy found his way to design via studying pharmaceuticals in college. Once the painting of apartments and small art pieces started in 1988, there was no looking back. Twenty years later, he has accumulated over 200 projects and numerous awards and recognitions including Best Designer at the 2008 HEIDI awards.
The owners of the Rumor Hotel only one word for what they wanted for their Fantastic Four suites, and that being – color! “I wanted the rooms to provide a complete party atmosphere,” he says, also adding that his firm fabricated all the drapery, art, paint, and case goods for the project. Beds are found in the living space, and the bathrooms boast 18-feet-long lounge benches and five-person showers.
For a little shock factor, the biggest eye-opener is the wide range of mysterious and seductive images, many of women. For instance, the black room is rich in sex appeal thanks to crisscrossing mirror strips and black-on-black tones with silver accents that are further enhanced by an image of a woman’s corseted torso in the bedroom and one of her pulling off her panties in the bathroom.
