DAP 360: Hotel Bel Air's Iconic Makeover

Growing up in Beverly Hills, there was one iconic hotel that absolutely stood out as a symbol of our little town and that was the Bel Air Hotel which is the focus of this week's
Dec-a-Porter 360*.

Not too far from where I lived
but their guest list was definitely a little different...

After 2 years, the doors are about to swing open to a fresh new design led by New York design firm Champalimaud.

I was so excited to see what was going to be in store for us and I can tell you - we are not going to be disappointed!

Look at these images, released today, are some of the great details from the Guestrooms and Lobby.

I love all the great details that they have been able to introduce into each area - allowing each guest feel at home.


Couldn't you just curl up in front of that fireplace?


I was part of a conversation today with some fellow bloggers about "timeless design". 

What it meant to each of us, and how it can play a role in our work, as designers, today.


This is a great example of how we should incorporate a fresh quality to our ever classical look. Allowing for the beauty in each piece, and the high quality of all the elements (in this case, not only the furniture and accessories, but the service, the comfort, the experience) to provide a "timeless and unforgettable" experience.


Just beautiful!
