I discovered this excellent and informative KNPR interview with Wynn Design and Development Executive Vice President Roger Thomas. This interior design guru is responsible for all interiors at Treasure Island, Bellagio and Wynn Las Vegas. Listening to this interview it is clear that nothing there happened by accident. Fascinating interview.
For those that don't listen regularly, KNPR's State of Nevada is a great insight into all things Las Vegas.
Update: I had no idea that Roger Thomas is the son of E. Parry Thomas, the famous Las Vegas banker.
