Today we bring a very special project: The Hotel Van Zandt, by Zeff Riffs.

The soulful folk rock of the late John Townes Van Zandt has been an inspiration to artists like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Norah Jones, Garth Brooks, and scores of other musicians in Van Zandt’s native Texas and beyond. His reach was recently extended to artists like Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Norah Jones, Garth Brooks, and scores of other musicians in Van Zandt’s native Texas and beyond. His reach was recently extended to design—in the shape of the Hotel Van Zandt, on the shore of Austin’s Lady Bird Lake.

At first sight, it may seem like a random pattern but if you take a closer look, you’ll figure out what it really is.  Some people don’t even notice the lettering on the floor because they’re so mesmerized looking up at the gorgeous Botti Chandelier.

All the common areas of the hotel are characterized by the presence of musical elements, like this  
Clark Suspension Chandelier, that provide an energetic jazz vibe to the rooms.

The suites are more playful, with vinyl record players and interesting art.
