Pink Flamingo Room Trixie Motel, Designed by Dani Dazey
This past year I went on the journey of my life as a designer and human being. I was chosen among hundreds of designers to design the Trixie Motel. A 7 bedroom motel in Palm Springs California, purchased by drag icon Trixie Mattel. Not only were we renovating and designing a run down motel, but the whole process was filmed and is now a TV show streaming on Discovery+! I began the designing and pre production on the show started in early 2021, and by fall we were breaking ground in Palm Springs. I lived in a hotel during filming with my fiancè and two dogs for almost 5 months. I was one of the most difficult yet rewarding experiences of my life. And now I finally get to share what we did with you all :)
Welcome to the first room at the Trixie Motel! For this room the goal was to embrace all that is Palm Springs so using the classic pink flamingo as our inspiration was the perfect starting point.
A cozy bed under an epic feather chandelier, a lounge area, wet bar, a fabulous dressing room and vintage bathroom, what more could you possibly want?
In order to really make this room one of a kind we had to add in some major custom moments. I hand drew the pattern for the wallpaper made by Astek Home, with matching bedding and curtains as well as the mural above the bed that took many hands, coats of paint and long hours but was 100% worth it and really is the focal point of the room. The custom Fireclay tile tables seen around the room were made using some extra tiles we had from the backsplash in the bar area which ended up being the perfect way to tie the two spaces together. Friends x Family a queer owned LA business did some custom builds including the dining table base and the dressing room cabinet. Last but definitely not least are the gorgeous stained glass windows made by Mojo Glassworks, a husband-wife small business that just knocked it out of the park bringing my design idea to life.
I hope you love this room as much as I do and continue to watch the rest of the room reveals on Trixie Motel every Friday on Discovery+. If you are interested in any of the pieces in this room I have included links at the bottom of this page to the same (or similar) items so you can create your very own pink flamingo paradise!
Also everything you see me wear here and in the show is hand drawn and designed by me for my brand Dazey LA. AKA the website you're on right now! All sustainably and ethically made right here in Los Angeles. Clothing design has been my main thing for the past 12 years and I started Dazey LA 6 years ago and have been bootstrapping it since. They didn't really highlight that on the show yet and I've been getting a ton of questions, so I gotta promote it myself ;) You can shop these styles and support our small business right here.
