    The Chamberlian hotel in West Hollywood has reopened following an extensive renovation.Interior designer Leslie Barrett was in charge of the hotel’s spring 2010 renovation, its first since it opened its doors in 2005.

    The improvements included an extensive remodel of all the guestrooms, suites, bathrooms and the roof-top outdoor pool deck, which now offers view of the Hollywood Hills and the Pacific Ocean.

    According to the hotel, the new aesthetic is a modern-day interpretation of 1970s and 1980s-era contemporary glamour, inspired by urban capitals like Milan and New York – unique and eclectic, yet comfortable and soothing. The decor incorporates a palette of cool hues including periwinkle and cream, with rich accents of gold, dark chocolate and bronze.

    Cream and espresso gridlined carpeting anchors rich stone veneer, brassy metal and chrome detailing, and layers of graphic patterns inspired by the pivotal decades, such as grids, checkerboards and chevrons.

    The hotel features 114 guest suites that have contemporary amenities and were designed to evoke the feeling of a home. Guest rooms feature a loft-like, open-concept layout, some with vaulted ceilings, and use an Asian-inspired screen to separate the living quarters from the bedrooms.

    All-new bathrooms have a blend of Negro Marquina, St. Laurent and Carerra marble throughout, as well as curbless showers, frameless glass shower doors, and custom-designed chrome frame vanities with marble tops.

    The hotel features a lounge and bistro that serves European and Californian cuisines. The dining room is coloured in watery blues and teals and looks out through a 20-foot wall of floor-to-ceiling windows onto a garden patio of tropical palms and native foliage. An exotic lattice-pattern of turquoise and green tile lines the floor, highlighting the turquoise strié wallpaper, while lantern-shaped pendant lights in white gold illume above.
