If you are looking for a chic place to stay, I highly recommend by my friend Sara Bliss.  She is certainly in the know and has a great roster of movers and shakers that travel the world and report back on some of the hippest hotels on the planet.

I’m happy to be a contributor on her blog and I just reported back after my stay at the Iconic Beverly Hills Hotel.  Check it out and pack your bags!

Lindsey Coral Harper Checks Into the Beverly Hills Hotel

Interior designer, and HC contributor, Lindsey Coral Harper reports back from the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel:

Fountain Coffee Room

LOVE: Everything about it!! My favorite hidden spot is the diner down stairs… I love an old-school lunch/breakfast counter.

DESIGN IDEA TO CRIB: The amazing palm leaf wallpaper, Martinique, available through Hinson. I’ve used the wallpaper before, it looks great in a foyer, a hallway or a powder room.  I used it in a client’s kitchen in Palm Beach and it was just what we needed, super kitsch.

ROOM HIGHLIGHTS: The rooms are really a throw back to Old Hollywood Glamour, they are spacious and the bathrooms practically have their own zip code.  Each room has a well-stocked bar and very comfy bed.  Only in Beverly Hills would each bathroom have a scale so you can weigh yourself…can you say Valley of the Dolls?!

Presidential Bungalow Bathroom Presidential Bungalow Private Pool

ROOM TO BOOK: If you’re want to splurge, and want your privacy too go for a Bungalow…. Marilyn Monroe lived in one for years!

BHH Swimming Pool


MUST DO: Reserve a cabana! The pool is one of the chicest places, and it just underwent a multi-million dollar renovation for the 100-year Jubilee.  Also, eat lunch outside at the Polo Lounge if you want to see or be seen.

INSIDER TIP: This hotel has impeccable service. You also have every amenity available to you. There is a salon downstairs, which is great if you want a blow-out before heading out. They have a La Prairie Spa of course if you want to relax by getting a massage or facial.  Between all the amenities the restaurants indoor and outdoor you are pretty much set. You really could live there!!

Brrrrrrr! February means two things; it’s freezing in NYC and the inevitable birthday! Since my birthday is in the dead of winter, I often pack my bags and head to a warmer climate.  Palm Beach is an easy trip from NYC and the social scene in the winter isn’t bad either.  When I’m not staying with friends I check into the Colony, which is mid-renovation by the legendary Carleton Varney.  I’m very excited to have a Slim Aarons inspired moment over cocktails at my dear friend Erin’s family home around the corner Saturday.

I’ve created a chic inspiration board for the perfect Palm Beach getaway weekend!!

Check my Instagram to see my birthday unfold and check back next week for my favorite spots and shops!!

Bon weekend!

Color Me Happy

What a Happy New Year and happy color for 2014.   I wasn’t surprised at all “Radiant Orchid” was selected as Pantone’s color of the year!! Being a lover of color, I was thrilled to see such a vibrant and strong color for 2014.  I used a similar color as my backdrop for an Atlanta Showhouse in January of 2012.  This color is bold, intense and works beautifully with grays, other jewel tones and black & white.  I’m including a photo of the room and some easy ideas for you to work this color into your home or into your wardrobe.  After all this is a bold choice, so it isn’t for everyone.  But why not add a little pop of it somewhere in your home or closet this winter!! It is a sure way to add some life, especially when it’s dreary and gray outside.

Have Fun!!
