Shimmery fabrics, molten finishes, and shiny treatments, metallic interiors are all the rage this season. And no one does it better than The London West Hollywood –designed by LuxDeco favourite David Collins.
This LA hotspot – just 20 minutes from Santa Monica beach and steps away from the famed Sunset Boulevard – is typical of its surroundings on the outside with its clean Bauhaus-like facade and awning-covered balconies. The distinction comes when you step inside its doors to find that the hotel offers a refined finish – one that’s gilded and shining no less – which sets it apart from the usual laid-back Californian style.
Custom-made for design aficionados who celebrate living in style, the hotel’s soothing pastel blue and neutral palette (very DC) lobby and restaurant area is bathed in a heavenly glow which issues from golden wall lights surrounded by gold-trimmed everything. Done subtly but with a controlled confidence only Mr Collins can achieve, the look is one of sophisticated glamour.
Following the hotel’s stunning lead, a touch of gold for good measure in an immaculate room will instantly lift its aesthetic. Whether you opt for a splash of shimmer or floor-to-ceiling lustre, these pieces will ensure your interiors shine with style just as The London does.
