Since the 70’s, entrepreneur Ian Schrager, CEO of Ian Schrager Company, has achieved worldwide recognition for concepts that have revolutionized both the entertainment and hospitality industries. His commitment to the modern lifestyle has been expressed through a series of pioneering concepts: The hotel as home away from home, the hotel as theater, "cheap chic", "lobby socializing", the indoor/outdoor lobby, the urban resort, and the urban spa. The result, a complete reshaping of the modern hotel from a place to crash to a place to experience.

Turn your home from a place to live to a place to experience. In fact, you can do it on a budget. The trick is to mix styles such as blending eclectic with contemporary or modern with traditional. Try to avoid building a hodge podge, simply build a place of fun, a place you want to experience, a travel destination you want to re-live and design your home accordingly.It is time to bring the great social experience back home. It is time to experience your home and not just live in it, but enjoy it.
