Will Wynn 2.0 Come To Encore?

Roger Thomas Collection's Twitter feed has posted before and after photos of Wynn Macau's Wing Lei designs, elucidating in two photos the 2.0 design transformation. These design shifts, from bold reds and browns to muted beige and creams that swept Wynn Las Vegas is now making its way through Wynn Macau.

The Wynn 2.0 design concept seems to have roots in Encore Las Vegas. Todd-Avery Lenahan's incredible Encore room designs - subtly colored, muted layers of complimentary yet highly contrasting patterns - were and still are breathtaking. Was Roger Thomas so smitten with the Encore hotel room design language (rightfully) that it informed and inspired the Wynn 2.0 avant tan re-skin? Could this be the reason why Wynn Resorts decided to only perform minor upgrades to the o.g. Encore rooms... the rest of the hotel finally caught up to Lenahan's concept?

Seeing how Wynn's design upgrades travel from property to property at planned intervals, it seems plausible that we should expect similar changes to sweep through Encore Las Vegas. Perhaps the recently revealed dining closures will be the first stages of this.

The above Wing Lei Wynn Macau photos inform that similar changes will come to Wazuzu. But what about the rest of Steve's sexy little sister? Is it time for Roxanne to put away her red dress and wipe that whorish red lipstick from her pouty puckered lips? And what about those Murano glass chandeliers? And the lobby bar? The resort elevators walkway? And that hidden-by-a-planter-vase secret corner that is covered in a random array of cabinet handles?

Will Wynn 2.0 come home to Encore? Yes. I can't wait for the garage sale. Roger?

I like the red better. Favorite rooms were Wynn LV originals. Though I love the Grand Salon Suite at Wynn/Encore Macau. Lots of red. Villa 81 there is even more amazing.

Good stuff! More hotel design coverage stuff please. There is definitely a shortage in this area since Hunter hung up the Two Way Hard Three blog.
