A few weeks ago, Joe and I took a 10 day trip to Los Angeles. It was part holiday and part reconnoissance. We decided to stay in several hotels so that we could see a lot of the city, before we stayed in Pasadena to look at apartments for our move in May. Today I’d like to feature the first hotel of our LA vacation, The Kinney Hotel in Venice Beach. While at the Kinney we were able to see a lot of Venice Beach and take an interior tour of The Eames House. The Kinney was by far our favourite hotel of the vacation. I really loved everything about the interior design. It’s very contemporary and really leans towards mid-century modern. It employs bold colour throughout and really nails the details. As Charles Eames once said, “The details are not the details. They make the design.”. The design is fun and trendy, and if anyone knows where their wallpaper is from, please let me know! I must also add that the staff were amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone! The first two photos are photos that I took during my stay, and the following photos are from The Kinney’s website.
