Our simple, easy-to-use platform allows you to choose from brand-approved design schemes and brand-approved items. Our designers then make sure the items and elements you have selected will fit in your space beautifully, meet brand requirements, and come together seamlessly to meet your design goals.
Monique Farley is our Lead Design Project Manager. She works closely with brands to understand their requirements and create brand-approved guest room design packages.
“I work with vendors directly on product development and pricing of FF&E for pre-approved brand design packages. I have been involved in hotel brand meetings and worked directly with franchisees and procurement companies on reviewing and approving design submission packages. This experience with the design process at the hotel brand level informs all of the work that I do with HotelFurniture.com.”
Leave the PIP, layout, floor plan, and brand-approval to her while you focus on running your hotel.
With a B.S. in Interior Architecture and an M.S. in Strategic Design & Management, Monique’s design experience covers the hospitality, residential, and commercial design industries. She understands brand-standards and the color and design theory that go into building them. She understands the design process and how you can appeal to your ideal clientele.
“For several years I worked for one of the top hotel brands out of their headquarters in the DC/Maryland in their Interior Design department. In my various roles, I learned so much and was afforded many opportunities that have shaped my career.”
Monique has a wide variety of design experience, having worked with brands such as Sleep Inn Designed to Dream 2.0, Clarion Pointe “Breeze” and “Cosmopolitan” schemes, Comfort “Move to Modern”, Netflix, California Lutheran University, and Oxnard College, to name a few.
“When it comes to my process I always keep in mind that the story behind every hotel is different. Even if they share the same brand-approved design scheme, each hotel has its own personality. Keeping this in mind, I approach each project with a high level of detail and sensitivity.”
Using Monique’s brand-approved guest room design package and selecting from a list of brand-approved items, you can view your room via 3D digital rendering before placing a deposit. This way you can have a clear understanding of how the renovations and items will look in your guest rooms. When you decide to move forward, Monique comes in to deal with the architectural design, administrative, and technical aspects that will make your rendering a reality.
Monique is an expert at finding creative solutions to complicated design challenges. She views it as a part of the creative process, welcoming the opportunity to think outside of the box.
“No project is 100%, exactly the same. There is always something that will keep you on your toes. And when I say the creative process I mean everything from research, strategy, concept development, and implementation. The entire process is fun for me because it taps into different skills.”
And where does she find the inspiration to develop beautiful and unique designs that comply with brand standards?
“This may sound cliche’ but when you hear people say inspiration can be found anywhere, it’s the truth. You never know what words you hear or things you see that will stick with you and how that impact will translate. I have found some of my greatest inspirations through traveling.”
After having worked with so many incredible and impressive brands, Monique has chosen HotelFurniture.com because of its innovative, creative, and energised atmosphere.
“Everyone is so passionate about their areas of expertise. It makes coming to work and being involved in the various projects and meetings even more exciting. Working with others who truly enjoy what they do has a contagious effect. We all want to do our best work. We’re all paying attention to the details. We’re all constantly zooming in and out of the bigger picture.”
Always looking for inspiration and excitement in every aspect of life, Monique loves to travel the world seeking new adventures. One of her most recent excursions had her cage-diving with great white sharks!
