THE WHEELHOUSE HOTEL
CHICAGO

THE DESIGN FIRM: Curioso, Chicago
THE MUSE: A life well lived, elevated by the pure Americana of its neigh-

borhood just one block from Wrigley Field. "We started with great bones-a
classic Chicago greystone building, where guests could feel like they're staying
at the home of a good friend," says Nina Grondin, partner, Curioso. Each of the
hotel's 21 rooms is accessible via an actual key.

THE MAVERICK MOVE: Monochromatic color palettes that instigate the

9-year-old snoop in all of us. "We loved the idea that you may be staying in
a blue room, but you may catch a glimpse of a coral room as you pass down
the corridor," Grondin says. "Hopefully this will catch your attention, stop you

in your tracks and inspire a little curiosity. Maybe you'll even poke your head
through the door just to take a peek. We love the idea of curiosity and exploration, a feeling we've all had when visiting someone's home for the first time. It's
simultaneously a little naughty and a little exciting."
THE MESSAGE: Tell the story of a life-not just a culture. This makes curation
more meaningful, and perhaps more emotional. Detailed door and window
trims are paired with mosaic tile and bold corridor carpet. Clever signage and
found, as well as refurbished, one-off pieces are scattered throughout as a
collection of memories.

THE MAGIC: Hiding some subtle Easter eggs for the die-hard baseball fans like
historic paraphernalia and hand-painted portraits. But the spotlight needed to
remain on the intricacies and intimate details that inevitably shine in anyone's
home. This one just so happened to belong to a character the team loosely based
off William Wrigley, founder of the famed chewing gum empire and former
owner of the Chicago Cubs, a lover of baseball and the arts as well, "with a biggerthan-life personality and a clever sense of humor," Grondin says. From there, they
asked themselves, "What's it like to spend time in his personal space?"
