I'm saying mini-color in the city because I made a day trip to Los Angeles for a work meeting and quick visit with my long time friend, Kristi. I had the opportunity to visit Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills, a super retro boutique recently re-designed by Kelly Wearstler.
Even on a chilly day, her monochromatic aqua theme felt fresh and welcoming with quirky artwork and painted details that , of course, made me smile.
These cabanas in the pool area are backed by brick walls painted in this delightful tile pattern! Paint! Graphic pattern! Beautifully executed! mmm, good.
Notice the ceiling treatment? I'm in love.
Kelly Wearstler used mainly color, paint, and pattern (sound familiar?) to put a fresh sparkle on this vintage inn.
