So here's the change that I've been wondering about lately: I was wandering through the Polynesian (in the Tokelau building to be specific) the other day, when I came across a segment of hallway that was different from the rest. The carpets, wallpaper, even bits of the ceiling were new, just in this one little bit of hallway. Check it out...
The regular hallway design is on the left. The different one is on the right.
Once again, regular wallpaper on the left; new wallpaper on the right. The new design does seem to make the hallway a little brighter (although that new brown carpet is still rather dark). I remember when they redid the Poly, at first I really didn't like how much darker the hallways and rooms were. Now I've gotten used to it though!
In this pic you can kinda get a sense of the new design in the one section of the hallway, then the old design continues beyond it. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this new decor. I like the pink and purple flowers on the rug, but I don't think it's as tropical as it should be. Also, it feels a lot like the Contemporary with the brown and the almost futuristic look of the wallpaper.
Then again, I don't even know if a decor change for the Poly is on the table. Maybe they were just testing this out to get a feel for it?? It'll be fun to see!
