What on Earth is going on with this interior design?
Firstly the kitchen. What's with the vertical AND the horizontal handles on cupboards? Basic rule in I.D...one way only.
Secondly, the bathroom. These enormous cylindrical handles straight out of a high school playground are everywhere because..?
Thirdly the vanity unit...come on, please tell me that the plumbing is somehow going to be covered up!
Now don't get me wrong because I absolutely LOVE the glass cladding used. It's stunning. It's just that if you're going to go to this much trouble and spend this much money...well...

Very nice shots guys. I'm really liking the interior to the Hotel so far. The interior has that simple yet elegent look and feel to it. Must be nice to have lots of money...

to be honest I don't like the upper part of this building and the "spire" seems a simply pole.
Too many skyscrapers have now these kind of spires, very poor... only to increase vertical height: this is "piracy", and it should be better to count only the roof height to avoid nonsense like Petronas > Sears

Well it Trump isn't exactly vying for "tallest buiding" status so I don't think its an issue. Also to appease such complaints separate heights for te spire for the roof are usually given. A spire should only become an issue if it does not visually complement the building's aesthetics. In Trump's case it does. Without the spires enhance buildings that have setbacks. Trump's roof does not terminate well at the top without the spire.

Totally agree. These are three basic errors.

1. Consistency
2. Scale and balance
3. Aesthetics

They failed badly on all three.

Also the plain wall of the kitchen doesn't integrate well with the fittings.
The switches in the bathroom don't blend in and stand out like sore thumbs.
The lighting isn't exactly good either although not all the lights are switched on.
Back to the drawing board for this one.
