The Peninsula Beverly Hills in Southern California has completed an extensive renovation of its 193 guestrooms, suites and villas with the debut of four specialty suites, each with its own signature color palette and style.
Three of the four suites were designed by Beverly Hills-based Forchielli Glynn, and the fourth was designed by Los Angeles-based Nancy Corzine. All four feature fireplaces, advanced flat-screen televisions and audio systems, and are accessorized with a diverse collection of books and objets, as if part of the guest’s personal collection.
“We wanted to offer a touch of variety to guests, who see our largest suites and villas as their home-away-from-home,” said Managing Director Offer Nissenbaum.
The 2,250-sq-ft (209-sq-m) Peninsula Suite, the “Green Suite,” exudes an “East-meets-West” ambiance. Walls are upholstered in soft greens, providing a backdrop for framed antique Asian textiles, Chinese blue-and-white porcelain and a grand piano. The principal seating area faces a carved-wood fireplace and features a hand-knotted Savonnerie area rug. In the dining room, hand-painted Chinoiserie-style murals depict foliage, birds and flowers. A Chinoiserie-style screen is the focal point of the master bedroom, which features a hand-painted four-poster bed and a seating area.
The 2,250-sq-ft (209-sq-m) Royal Patio Suite, the “White Suite,” features cream-toned backgrounds and upholstery accented with gilded and hand-painted finishes. White linen drapery frames views of the private terrace, the hotel gardens and the Century City skyline. The great room features several seating areas, contemporary artwork and a dining table beneath a crystal chandelier.
The 1,500-sq-ft (139-sq-m) Grand Deluxe Suite, the “Pink Suite,” showcases hues of deep rose accented by Dior gray and contrasted by white wainscoting, gold- and silver-leaf accents, contemporary framed drawings and hand-knotted area rugs. Macassar ebony and Zebrawood veneers provide a counterpoint to Swedish-style lounge chairs. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed cocooned in a curved upholstered panel with a mirror above, which wraps around the head of the bed and the night tables.
The 1,500-sq-ft (139-sq-m) Grand Deluxe Suite by Nancy Corzine, the “Blue Suite,” highlights an ice-blue palette accented with Venetian silver, cream and white. Chairs and sofas are in pale blue linen-velvet with Greek key trim. End tables feature hand-blown Murano glass lamps with pale blue silk lampshades. The master bedroom, also done in shades of pale blue and white, features mirrored nightstands and polished-nickel wall sconces. “I wanted to create a suite that a California blonde would look fabulous in,” Corzine said.
