Palm Tree Green
From Rodeo Drive to Mulholland Drive, if there’s one thing you can’t miss in Beverly Hills, it’s the palm trees. Whether you’re looking up at them from your poolside lounge chair at the Hotel or viewing them from a convertible on the 101, no spectacle embodies the “spirit of SoCal” quite like rows of palms against a blue skyline in Beverly Hills.
The ‘Hills,’ Retro
While we can’t deny that Beverly Hills today is the epitome of luxe style, what we wouldn’t give to revisit her ‘Golden Age!’ Circa 1950, bold uses of colors, contrasts and patterns seemed to fill every room of every locale in town – both influencing and being influenced by the major studios in nearby Hollywood. As a result, the design style now known as “Hollywood Regency” was born.
While contemporary design in Beverly Hills today encompasses a range of looks influenced from a wide variety of styles, there seems to remain in every interior in the city – from restaurants to hotels to private homes – a trace of nostalgia. From vintage wall photographs to mid-century accents, wherever you go in Beverly Hills, you’re bound to run into the occasional ‘nod’ to a past not quite forgotten, a Golden Age that led Hollywood – and the rest of the world –with captivating elegance.
