      Artist Reception: Shamsy Roomiani

      Join us for an exclusive reception to celebrate the opening of Shamsy Roomiani's capsule collection pop up in the Sweet Tooth Hotel gift shop. You will have the opportunity meet artist Shamsy Roomiani and hear the inspiration behind her installation BedSpring in addition to shopping her exclusive prints and one of a kind Shamstones and jewelry.

      BedSpring Artist StatementMy ‘BedSpring’ art installation for Sweet Tooth Hotel was inspired by Persian aesthetics and iconography with intricate patterns, a bold color palette, and complimented by lavish florals. Coiled plant stems are grounded to grapevine sconces as hundreds of flower heads spring upwards, intertwining to create a floral sheet bathed in warm golden light. The grapevines coil and crawl up the golden walls, reaching with their shadows, for their floating flower heads. Meditate on the kaleidoscope of florals, as they swing and sway above, to lull you into a state of relaxation. The Venus Bed offers infinite luck when you rest the crown of your head upon a pillow of gold and green, embedded with a mighty queen four-leaf clover. Venus fly traps interlace themselves in a Persian rug bedspread and footboard to provide support for the body. Three infinite guardian serpents extend a protective foundation at the base of the footboard. Gilded in gold, 13 four-leaf clovers are hidden among the weeds in the Sparkling Sprigs floor for those lucky enough to spot them. Sail along the sanctuary to the shadowy blues and purples of the Moon florals rising on the eastern horizon. Ebb and flow in their dark depths and textures until you drift along to the western horizon feeling the energy pull you to the light of the Sunshine florals. Radiate in the Sunshine florals as they adorn and embrace you. LEAF BedSpring with rays of glimmering golden luck.
