Grand Hotel: Redesigning Modern Life Exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery

A few weeks ago I got the pleasure of going to the Grand Hotel Exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery and it was pretty amazing to see some of the history behind how the ‘grand hotel’ came to be.  The black and white images of glamorous vintage hotels‘ past made me want to come home and have a Marilyn Monroe/Grace Kelly marathon with a martini and a cigarette (just kidding, I don’t actually smoke, just seemed like a 50’s thing to say).  Here’s a peek at some of the cool stuff at the exhibit, I’m loving the retro.
