Lisman Studio Celebrates the Grand Opening of Marriott Courtyard Resort in Sedona, AZ

(Sedona, AZ) - With Marriott’s long awaited entry into the highly selective Sedona, Arizona resort market, an average standard Marriott Courtyard would never do. Franchisee, Sunridge Properties, Inc. tasked Lisman Studio with the charge to pull together a custom hospitality package for their stunning Marriott Courtyard in this gorgeous high desert community. Striking a beautiful balance between the colorful and inspiring landscape, and the functionality of a busy hotel, became an exciting and challenging task for Lead Designer Scott Ross. A culmination of efforts, vision, innovative design and brand recognition: the Sedona, AZ Marriott Courtyard Resort celebrated their Grand Opening on October 6, 2016.

Utilizing nature as his constant inspiration, Scott deftly pulled together a magnificent tribute not only to Sedona, but to the Marriott Courtyard brand as well. A striking entryway and Lobby, an appetizing Bistro, Conference Rooms, Concierge Desk and a relaxing Media Room all became opportunities for Scott to show a playful collection of textures, patterns and colors; all paying homage to the surrounding desert landscape. Custom hand-forged iron light fixtures compliment every space, accenting beautiful rich wood ceilings complete with chunky rustic beams and corbels.

Finishes everywhere reflect an organic feel; wood, stone, iron and fabrics with a soft and natural hand, marry beautifully with large scale, heavy and comfortable furnishings. The entire space feels welcoming, relaxing and vibrant – a tribute to it’s beautiful and majestic surroundings. The Marriott Courtyard Resort serves as yet another example of Scott's talent, playful use of color, and his incredible eye for detail that shows in every project he completes at Lisman Studio.
