Go retro in star­let style

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Destination Luxury -

UP­SCALE Bev­erly Hills in Los An­ge­les will be go­ing all out next year to cel­e­brate its 100th birth­day as a des­ig­nated city. Five of the star-stud­ded precinct’s most lux­u­ri­ous ho­tels have com­mis­sioned de­sign­ers to re­dec­o­rate a suite in a style to ‘‘trans­port guests back to mo­ments in time from the past 100 years and show­case the leg­endary style of one of the world’s most glam­orous cities’’. Ho­tels in the Suite 100 cen­ten­nial ini­tia­tive are:

(‘‘The Golden Age In­spired by Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe’’);

(‘‘Stylish, So­phis­ti­cated 60s: A Reimag­ined Rev­o­lu­tion’’);

(‘‘The Era of Stu­dio 54: Fash­ion and Art Col­lide’’) and

(‘‘The Birth of Mod­ern Lux­ury’’). A ren­der­ing of the de­sign for the Mon­roe-in­spired suite at The Bev­erly Hills Ho­tel & Bun­ga­lows (pic­tured) shows its Polo Lounge am­bi­ence and iconic pink-and-green colour scheme. Mon­roe stayed fre­quently at this ho­tel, which marked its cen­te­nary last year. De­scribed as ‘‘quintessen­tially Cal­i­for­nian’’, the re­vamped suite decor will fea­ture black lac­quer fin­ishes, trop­i­cal prints, shag car­pets and a bar made from sy­camore ‘‘that speaks to the era’s mod­ernist in­flu­ence’’.
