The Peninsula Beverly Hills recently updated all 193 of its guestrooms, including the suites and villas, adding fresh paint, bedding, furnishings and carpeting. Forchielli Glynn, a Beverly Hills-based interior design firm, oversaw the year-long process that started in 2011, relying on local artisans to liven up the décor with new crystal chandeliers, hand-crafted tables, wall panels and drawings.
Each of the four largest suites at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel was given its own distinct style. The Presidential Suite, with its new green palette, features East-meets-West décor such as framed antique Asian textiles and a hand-painted mural with birds, flowers and greenery reminiscent of the hotel’s garden. Over in the Grand Deluxe Suite, you’ll find deep rose hues accented by crisp white and gold leaf, calling to mind a stylish pied-à-terre. The second Grand Deluxe Suite, designed by Nancy Corzine, has an ice blue palette with hints of Murano glass and blue linen velvet.
In the 16 private villas, which are situated among The Peninsula Beverly Hills’ tropical gardens, you’ll find new wall coverings and redesigned fireplaces with limestone hearths — perfect for snuggling up with room service after a long day of shopping and sunning at the beach.
The Peninsula Beverly Hills underwent an elegant renovation of all 193 guest rooms, suites and villas in 2011 and the first quarter of 2012. The new look celebrates color and enhances the connection between the sunshine-filled interiors and surrounding tropical gardens, yet retains the hotel’s original aesthetic of classic elegance and intimate comfort in a setting evocative of a glamorous Beverly Hills estate.
