Kelly Wearstler took lead from classic Santa Monica history, both visual and cultural, throughout the hotel that enhances a very modern design. Striking objects dot the public spaces, a result of custom collaborations with L.A artisans for original artworks and monolithic installations, including Ben Medansky, Morgan Peck, Tanya Aguiniga, Len Klikunas, and Bradley Duncan.
