The Pink Palace: Decorating Hotel Style



I just love decorating hotel style. If anyone is familiar with my website, I love old hotel items that capture the elegance of a bygone era. So, when I picked up the new March issue of InStyle Magazine, I was excited to see Nicky Hilton's home. She has taken her dinette and turned it into a mini Beverly Hills Hotel with their banana-leaf wallpaper, pink dinette set and mugs and canisters from their gift shop. So charming! The chandelier even has cute pink lampshades tying the room together. She had memories of time spent at the hotel as a little girl and wanted to capture it in her home. If you're ever been to the Beverly Hills Hotel aka the Pink Palace, it's truly a treat. You can't escape the sweet scent of flowers that grace the entire property. The Polo Lounge is the classiest place to dine. The coffee shop takes you back to an innocent time. The hotel service is amazing. The amenities, fabulous! And, of course, I can't leave out the people watching...quite a scene.

A bit more on Nicky Hilton's home. I couldn't pass up these photos of her black & white abode.
Love the patent leather headboard and bench in the bedroom. The whippets at the fireplace and this fabulous vintage Chanel serving tray that she converted into a side table. Fun!

I subscribe to Victoria Magazine and enjoyed reading about your hotel silver. Of course, I had to go online and check out your shop and your blog. I have the book The Paris Apartment and have to go check to see if it is your book. Your decorating style is magnifique!

A match made in heaven, I decorated my bathroom with the same paper, I'm probably quite naff but I can't get enough of their livery.
