Trixie Motel Flower Power Room Reveal - 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 :)
I am so thrilled to finally be sharing all the details about my personal favorite room that I got to design at the Trixie Motel. We went full on with the flower power print in this room and with the colors as well! The inspiration was Brady Brunch and 70s flower power, but I love that it also had a playful Y2K feel in the end. My first flower design Trixie didn't love for the wallpaper but great news is I got to use it for my clothing line instead (which means you all get to enjoy it too). I drew up a new design with more bold and simple daisy flowers and from there the team over at Astek Home went to work on the custom wallpaper. We also worked with Haustile, a women owned tile business who were an absolute dream to work with, to create the custom pink and white flower tiles used in the backsplash in the kitchen. Hint, I may have some special edition Dazey tile designs coming out with them soon ;)
A custom bed was a must for this room and Marc Nunez the owner of Total Design Furniture and his team were so easy to work with when it came to fixing the shape of the original headboard to create more of a true daisy petal shape. It absolutely turned out to be my dream bed. It's been SO fun to design every elements of these rooms, down to the furniture and fabrics.
Be sure to 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 own room filled with florals!
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.
