DALLAS—Pickard Design Studio, a boutique interior design firm based here, was selected by Trigate Capital to handle interior renovations for the recently rebranded Magnolia Hotel Park Cities, formerly the Holiday Inn Park Cities. The renovation features a wide variety of interior and exterior design changes to better reflect the upscale Magnolia brand.
Originally the Radisson Hotel Dallas, the hotel was rebranded as the Holiday Inn Park Cities in 2012. Pickard Design Studio performed an $8-million renovation of this property in 2012 when it transitioned from the Radisson Hotel Dallas to the Holiday Inn Park Cities. The hotel’s 292 rooms were updated, as well as the meeting rooms, common spaces, check-in area and the hotel’s massive lobby bar and café. Many of these previous renovations were maintained in the rebranding effort.
The lobby, great room and restaurant were the focus of the renovation, which features new furniture and furnishings, wallcoverings, artwork and key focal points. The updated color scheme includes a lighter palette of creams and taupes with mixed metals throughout.
Pickard partnered with the Tony Horton Collection, a Dallas-based firm with more than 30 years of design and manufacturing experience that specializes in the creation of custom interior environments, to create the signature wood panels. Additionally, the driveway entrance features new landscaping and several water features.
The Magnolia Park Cities is owned by Dallas-based Trigate Capital and managed by Stout Street. Its central location provides access to Downtown Dallas, Southern Methodist University, Northpark Center, Mockingbird Station, Greenville Avenue, George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, and American Airlines Center.
