The 121 guest rooms at L'Auberge Del Mar, A Destination Hotel, located in San Diego's coastal North County region, have emerged with a fresh new contemporary look masterminded by renowned Los Angeles interior designer Barclay Butera.
According to Bob Harter, director of sales and marketing for L'Auberge Del Mar, the room renovations are part of a recently completed refurbishment program, which also impacts meeting spaces and select public areas. “All our latest upgrades are taking a cue from the surrounding surf, sand and sun,” he added.
Providing an inspired take on the hotel's oceanfront location, the new guest rooms have been redone with Butera's characteristic modern beach flair – marked by clean, transitional “coastal chic” decor.
According to Butera, who first redid the resort in 2008, each guestroom now sports a calming backdrop of crisp whites and subdued neutrals accented by fresh beach colors such ocean blue, sea glass greens and soft sand hues. The striking palette sets the stage for layered details with a mix of textures such as infused damask prints, pattern wallcovering, handsome stripe-style carpeting and custom bedding. A mix of contemporary with traditional detailing in the furnishings, bold contemporary artwork, bright white wood cabinetry and bright new lighting throughout, all enhance the serene setting. Subtle geometric accents boost visual interest, while dark wood furnishings ground each room. Oversized accent pillows provide bold pops of color and pattern while natural fine touches such as seashells and coral further the surf feel.
The end result, said Butera: a comfortable and appealing environment which oozes West Coast chic. “After a long day at the beach, guests can come home to an inviting and beautifully appointed space,” he said. “We are thrilled and honored to have worked with L'Auberge Del Mar on this project, which evokes our unique brand of sophisticated coastal style.”
The room redos come on the heels of a recently announced partnership with acclaimed artist Aaron Chang, a photographer known for his colorful and dynamic surf and ocean images who is showcasing some of his most compelling works throughout the resort. Furthering the resort's beachy appeal is a live TV feed of the Pacific Ocean which welcomes guests and anchors the lobby's front desk area.
