Avalon

ORIGINALLY BUILT IN 1949, AVALON BEVERLY HILLS UNDERWENT ITS INITIAL RENOVATION IN 1999 AND MERGED KELLY WEARSTLER’S DRAMATIC STYLE WITH THE GLAMOROUS NOSTALGIA OF MIDCENTURY DESIGN. FOR THE HOTEL’S 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY, THE DESIGNER HAS RE-IMAGINED THE SPACE, DEFTLY BLENDING ITS OLD HOLLYWOOD ROOTS WITH A DISTINCT 1950S VIBE. FOR THE LOBBY SPACE, SHE APPOINTED A LATE 1960S FIBERGLASS “SAFARI” SOFA, ITALIAN GILT CERAMIC COLUMNS AND A STRIPED MURAL OVERHEAD WITH ALTERNATING TONES OF LIGHT BLUE AND WHITE.
