“Pinch me…I’m d.r.e.a.m.i.n.g”
This past December I received a phone call from the lovely Kimberly Werner, Catering Sales Manager for the The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte. “Kristin, we are working on a project that we are hoping to have you be a part of. There is a bit of a time crunch, are you able to come by soon?” It was then that I learned all about, e.y.i DESIGN STUDIO (aka – ENGAGE YOUR IMAGINATION). Our very own The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte is pioneering the first ever in-house Design Studio in the world! Complete with a Tasting Room, Design Room, Cake Room AND…
“YES!! I’ll be right there!”
My first walk-thru was beautiful. Full of life, excitement and collaboration. I met (and have fallen in-love) with Rebecca Cochran, Meetings and Special Events. We have a clear and concise direction under the creative eye of, Mr. David Rothwell (General Manager). And I could not be more excited to have Kenny of Kenny Color Lab by my side on this project.
The transformation is currently underway. Image install is mid-February…just around the corner.
I hope you enjoy this little journey.

Mr. Rothwell’s vision is Tuscan-inspired. Complete with Restoration Hardware interior furnishings, oak cashmere wood flooring that will span from the floor to the ceiling and cultured stone arch ways…it will leave every bride longing to move in and call the e.y.i. studio, “Home!”
Below is a rough prototype of the entry hallway (complete with kvp imagery…eeek! pinch me!!!).
The Wedding Cake Studio is currently transforming from a dandelion hue to a lovely shade of mauve. Aaaand…I was lucky to catch the engineering department fitting the doorways for the cultured stone.
Stay tuned for more on this exciting project soon!
