Treasury Ballroom’s Modern Facelift Accrues Interest.
While 1980’s elegance and flair may hold up in Dynasty, we are NOT in Denver, we are not in the oil industry, and sadly, we are not a Carrington. While embracing those amazing fads like shoulder pads and mile-high Aquanetted bangs, let’s not forget the breathtaking décor and color palettes. I’m talking about fake flowers, gigantic fountains and Liberace-esque faux gold coated anything. And mauve. MAUVE! I mean, taupe had its moment, but MAUVE, you guys. Talk about drama. And like sands through an hourglass, such drama was captured airtight in our vault in Portland’s well revered and iconic venue, The Treasury Ballroom. Until now.
Our Treasury Ballroom got a little nip/tuck, and a Teen Witch makeover, and now, we’re thrilled to present you with her updated beauty. Gone are the heavy, sagging drapes of velvet. No more is the dark mahogany accenting and Liberace-esque faux gold coated anything. Seriously, there was a LOT of gold. Also, saying farewell is the butter-cream yellow paint job and unfortunate fluorescent lighting. Sometimes saying goodbye is painful, but in this case, it was as rejuvenating and exhilarating as when Alexis and Krystle got in their first cat fight back in 1982.
We’ve modernized The Treasury, adding fresh, clean and simple notes. Minimal elements are juxtaposed against the historic venue to create an ambiance of bright chic elegance. The Italian marbling still lays exposed and pristine, paired with our vision of a dark navy blue, tabby grey and brilliant white palette. We knocked out a wall or two, updated the built in bar, tore out the old carpet, brightened up the ceiling, reconfigured an ergonomic floor plan, and polished up the hardware and vault. The neutral palette translates perfectly for any event theme and the customized space is ideal for weddings, receptions, meetings, conferences, holiday parties, networking events, or choreographed dance numbers. This star of yesteryear is ready for her comeback, and don’t worry, we kept the dramatic staircase intact should a cat-fight ensue.
