Whether traveling for business or pleasure, hospitality spaces are meant to evoke an emotional response. Each carefully orchestrated moment contributes to the quality of the guest experience. At CHIL Interior Design, we believe every brand and location has a unique story to tell through the experiences they offer.

We believe in the power of storytelling through design to communicate what inspires, drives, and excites people.

WHO’S ON THE GO? Proud Singles

The number of singles of all ages is growing rapidly globally. With commitments moving beyond getting married, buying a house and having kids, singles are seeing the solo lifestyle as the key to flexibility, freedom, affluence and empowerment.

The Hyperinfluencer

With nearly three times as many internet users than the US, China‘s digital key opinion leaders (KOLs) have the power to make or break brands, turning collaborations into massive sales or destroying reputations.

Gen Z

Outnumbering millennials in 2019, Gen Zers will be seeking sociallyconscious destinations that are off the beaten track and relatively inexpensive. Providers offering affordable accommodation at remote locations with solid Instagrammability will be geared up for this growing generation of tourists.

Wanderluxe

Unique experiences are defining luxury in travel and the more mysterious, the better. In a world where travellers are yearning to do more than chase the perfect selfie at the latest hot Instagrammable spot, secret locations are becoming the newest indulgence in luxury travel. From surprise daily activities, to secret destinations, mystique is the new luxury.

DESIGNING FOR THE FUTURE Designing Without Bias

Great hospitality is grounded in providing a genuine and authentic welcome experience for every guest. Designers are listening and learning - and are inspired to find new ways to accommodate and be inclusive to all in the spirit of current social engagement.

Time of Disruption

Design shapes the response to disruptions. Traditional standards of cleanliness and safety are being challenged and informing new ways of designing and planning hotel spaces. New approaches are evolving to both guestrooms and shared spaces - ones that balance the luxury of personal service and the necessity of guests’ personal safety.

Living Green

Environmental concerns and the popularity of eco-friendly practices continue to increase. Being sustainable is no longer a buzz-word and is now a quality the new generation of travelers are looking for in their stays. From using recycled materials, to efficient space planning to lower carbon footprint, designing the future means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Paul Morissette Senior Principal, Global Lead

“What is your favourite journey?

I toured Europe by rail and thumb in the 70’s. It was a fantastic trip of over six months where I was exposed to so many distinct cultures with a history of great and varied design.

Q: What is your greatest fear? A: Water over my head and no land in sight. This sometimes enters my dreams when I am very busy. Q: What is it that you most dislike? A: People who lie and advance their own cause by dismissing or belittling others. Q: What do you most value in your friends? A: Loyalty and continuity. One of my oldest friends I met in grade school. Q: What inspires you? A: I am inspired by good people and great hospitality design. Most guests will not remember the exterior design of a hotel but will remember and be inspired by beautiful interiors. The careful balance of a wellexecuted design combined with the careful

16

consideration of guest needs elevates the guest experience providing comfort and respite, opportunities for casual as well as structured interaction, and moments of visual calm and drama. Q: What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery? A: Going to work, not enjoying it - and doing the exact thing day after day. Q: If you weren’t a designer, what would you be doing? A: The design industry is unique in that every project and every day present new and exciting opportunities. I feel very fortunate for the career that I have had in hospitality. I worked as an architect for 18 years designing new hotels in western Canada. I then had the opportunity to cross the table and work as Director of Design and Construction for Delta Hotels and then Fairmont hotels &

Resorts providing an entirely new outlook on how the hotel industry values and approaches design. After 6 years with the brands, I joined CHIL Interior Design and have led this talented boutique studio with Adèle for the past 16 years. Whatever else I might do – it will certainly involve hospitality. Q: What is your most marked characteristic? A: I am (outwardly) calm, and solution driven. This is partly by nature and mostly learned through four decades in the hospitality industry. Q: What is your motto? A: My motto is that there is no motto – each day presents new opportunities that require new and unique solutions.


Adèle Rankin Principal, Global Design Lead

“What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Sunny late afternoon, good wine in hand, listening to my beautiful daughter telling me a story.

Q: What is your current state of mind? A: Pretty content, mixed with a good amount of stress.

Q: What is it that you most dislike? A: Injustice and feeling out of control.

Q: What is your greatest fear? A: I don’t like saying those things out loud – my only superstition.

Q: What is your greatest extravagance? A: Chai lattes too often.

Q: What is a lesson you learned from a project that you will never forget? A: Don’t make a mistake your pay cheque can’t cover! Seriously though, think things through and prioritize the important aspects and don’t be precious about everything. Q: Was there a particular moment of inspiration that changed your thinking about design? A: Realizing that design is not about the designer but all about the end user and their experience.

Q: Are there any words of wisdom from one of your clients that have stuck with you? A: When you point a finger at others be aware that there is always three now pointing back at you. Always think about your responsibility to solve a problem before casting blame. Q: What do you most value in your friends? A: Good humour and understanding.

Q: What is something a well-designed building can’t live without? A: Atmosphere, soul and purpose. Q: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? A: I would be more patient. Q: If you weren’t a designer, what would you be doing? A: This industry is in my blood, so I was never going to avoid this path… although is global spa-tester a thing?! Q: What is your most marked characteristic? A: I always carry nuts to snack on and I happily multi-task like a pro.

At CHIL, our design process revolves around trust and collaboration. BEFORE WE CREATE, WE LISTEN. For us, ideas come first, not egos. We believe success is the result of the collective minds of CHIL and our clients.

Karoline Rakowska

Design Director, Asia

“Design at its heart is about solving problems. This

process requires designers to analyze everything from studying the function of the space to implementing the client’s requirement. Q: Could you tell us a bit about your role in CHIL? A: Apart from leading our teams of interior designers, I like to be involved in all stages of the design process – from developing comprehensive interior design concepts, through producing construction documentation, to handling contract administration. Q: What have influenced you to move to Hong Kong? A: I have traveled extensively throughout Asia along with my husband and we went to places

such as India, Nepal. We even backpacked around China by using local transportation! When we finally arrived Hong Kong, we were amazed and we just fell in love with this Asia’s world city, which was why we decided to move to Hong Kong and have lived here for over 18 years. Q: What inspired you to become an interior designer? A: Looking back at my career path, I think my passion for drawing was what sparked my interest in the field of design. Ever since I was little, I have always liked

drawing – all I need to entertain myself is nothing more than a pencil, a piece of paper and my imagination. When I was studying in university, I was attracted by the courses offered by the Architecture program. Who would have thought my knack for drawing would help me quickly learn how to draw perspectives and shadow just under a year! I was always aware of good design and throughout my career I have discovered that I am more sensitive to finishes and colors, which drawn me to become an interior designer.
