The Big Sleep

It's so nice when things come together perfectly. For the past six months, we've been following a hotel suite design competition at the historic El Cortez Hotel in downtown Las Vegas. Four designers, four suites, $22,000 each. I have to admit that I was not as excited about this project as the other members of the team working on it (the videographer and reporter). But in the end, the design team that won was the team I had coincidentally spent the most time photographing. It all worked out and looking back, I actually got some decent photos. I will not complain so much next time.

Tina learns her design "The Big Sleep" has won.

The original suite without renovations. Bleck.

Tina's fabulous shoes with the ugly carpet.

They used bullet casings as decoration to go with the mob theme. Brilliant.
