Design Review

Palihouse has taken its modern brand to the beach and I can’t wait to see the full hotel design when it opens this summer. Palihouse Santa Monica is a 36-room beach lodge in a Spanish Colonial Revival-style building, which has been deemed a historic landmark by the City of Santa Monica.

At Palihouse Santa Monica, tastemakers and world travelers now have the chance to stay in a residential style dwelling without have to compromise on location, style, or amenities. This prime location is the perfect hybrid of boutique hotel and luxury residence that is sure to be an experience in itself.

Modern Guest Room

We’ve only gotten a quick peek into the rooms but I can tell this place is going to be great. The mixture of modern elements, pattern, and bold pops of color combine to create a room full of interest. Modern table lamps are always a great way to define the character in a room. When you feel like a change swapping out your table lamps can make your room take on a whole new feeling.

Modern Table Lamp

Cherry Finish Wood Surveyor Tripod Table Lamp

The original vanity was given a fresh coat of beautiful French gray paint and bright new porcelain knobs. Mixing the industrial barstool, cork flooring and modern wallpaper with this vintage element creates a timeless look. 

Modern Rustic Design

The vintage wall sconce is like the cherry on top of this beautiful vanity. Modern wall sconces add so much character into your room and picking on that is unexpected will give your modern bathroom or modern vanity that wow factor.

Modern Wall Light

Menlo Park 14" High Old Silver Wall Sconce

The bold stripes repeat throughout the space and are strikingly dramatic against the light wood table. 

Modern Accent Table

Jamie Young Americana Metal and Wood Stool

I’m ready to sit down in the new Palihouse Santa Monica and daydream about world travels and life experiences while sipping a hot cup of tea. It’s this combination of old and new that will give you a nostalgic feeling and something to write home about.
