Artist documents her stays in various hotels in delicate illustrations



Bestinau got that-


For some, a hotel is just a temporary place to stay. For others, a hotel can be a fascinating glimpse into a carefully curated world of design and architecture. Hotel enthusiast and artist Kei Endo documents the different styles of accommodations where she stays in Japan through her ongoing series of watercolor layout illustrations.

From hand-drawing her hotel room’s blueprints (including measurements) to painting the view from the room’s window, no detail is spared in these meticulous entries. Endo spends as much time capturing the big picture of these places – such as the architecture, size and placement of objects – as he does highlighting the small, thoughtful details associated with hotel stays, such as toiletries and coffee mugs. As a result, her illustrations are compelling portals to these many different places.

By systematically recording all these hotel rooms, Endo emphasizes what these accommodations have in common and what makes them all unique. Some seem more typical in appearance, while others stand out for more unique design choices, such as a curtain that surrounds the bed or a table pulled out of the closet. Endo ensures that all these items in the room’s palette are colored so that they reflect the atmosphere of the home.
