In the lobby I was graced with the most extraordinary glass sculpture I had ever seen. It is the chandelier Fiori di Como by glass sculptor Dale Chihuly. It is a three-dimensional floral masterpiece that explodes with bright, rich colors and is lit from behind emitting a day glow that is just breathtaking.
Right next to the lobby is the Conservatory, which I learned changes with each of the four seasons and Chinese New Year. The current theme is called "Claude Monet: Impressions of Light" and featured a floral rendition of Fisherman’s Cottage on the Cliffs at Varengeville (1879) along with aesthetics of his native Holland.
After a morning of being inspired, we headed off to brunch at Todd English's Olives and secured a table on the outdoor patio. Much to our surprise and delight it was a front row seat to the Bellagio's famous fountain show!
