Slideshow: the Gladstone Hotel’s weird makeover for Come Up To My Room 2014

Slideshow: the Gladstone Hotel's weird makeover for Come Up To My Room 2014

Each year, for its annual Come Up To My Room event, the Gladstone Hotel temporarily transforms itself into a kind of art-world funhouse. Many parts of the building, but especially the rooms on the second floor, get sublimely strange makeovers by different designers, and visitors are free to wander through. It’s like exploring a series of walk-in dioramas—some lovely, others totally demented. The experience is worthwhile in itself, but it also works as counterprogramming for the annual Interior Design Show, which is as businesslike as Come Up to My Room is dark and mysterious.

Here are some photos of this year’s Come Up To My Room installations. The event runs until Sunday, January 26, and admission costs $10.
