Low-end hotels along the highway. You don't really think of them as being designed by, well, designers, but this BRAND-FLIPPIN'-NEW Best Western Plus in Texarkana reveals to all who walk through its sensor-controlled doors that we have entered a new epoch of low-end hotel design. In fact, the ersatz-high end decor in this hotel is so dramatic, so impressive, that one is hard-pressed to not consider the many facets of hotel interior decoration.
Allow me to introduce the colors.
A dramatic GUNMETAL GRAY
A calming ROBIN'S EGG BLUE
A non-invasive PALE BEIGE that probably has a name like SAND or LIGHTLY TOASTED
A dark, tawny color I'm going to call RICH EARTH (brown with a little gray)
Good old WHITE
The carpets in this room feature a pattern that looks like whale sperm jauntily swimming towards an egg (blue spermy squiggles). There are curtains. Every angle of this room has been carefully considered, as there are a lot of angles. There is an accent wall painted a calming blue.
Is this not 2013? Am I not paying $84 for what, to my eyes at least, is one swank room? Are these ceilings not high? Is there not so much extra room between the bed and the TV that I could do some yoga before turning in and not feel cramped? Are these rhetorical questions helping you choose a hotel?
The future is now, people. The future is gunmetal gray. The future is this sanitized remote control with a note saying that the remote control has been sanitized. Germy remotes are so 2008. This is now and now is when you should stay in this hotel.
