On a recent business trip to Las Vegas, Paul Wiseman stayed overnight at the Wynn Encore. The luxury hotel was decorated by

Roger Thomas

, friend and head of design for Wynn Hotels and Resorts.

The luxury decor at the Encore doesn't translate readily into the kind of residential design done by The Wiseman Group, but Paul was able to spot a number of light fixtures that could work well in a private home.

One of the key amenities of the Encore is the availability of fine restaurants within the Wynn-Encore complex. Paul dined at the Wing Lei, the first Chinese restaurant in the country to be awarded a Michelin star.

After a delicious dinner, Paul took a short walk through the complex to take in a performance of 

Le Rêve

at the aqua theater-in-the-round built especially for the production. The fantastical show, voted "Best Production Show in Las Vegas" for an unprecedented five consecutive years, did not disappoint.

The Wynn experience made it possible to conduct business and enjoy a mini holiday all in the span of 36 hours!
