Traveling has always been a great source of inspiration to
me. I find myself to be inspired
by the local art and architecture of a place I’m visiting. But it doesn’t stop
there. Hotels, restaurants and shops can also provide great design ideas. With
this series, we will discover a new place of inspiration together. The first stop, the Viceroy Anguilla.
Located on the island of Anguilla in the British West Indies, you will find the
Viceroy Anguilla, a stunning, contemporary resort. The interiors were designed by one of my celebrity designer crushes, Kelly
Wearstler. If you are unfamiliar with her, Wearstler is known for her grand, glam-mod design. With the Viceroy Anguilla, she used a more natural version of her signature aesthetic by using more muted tones and letting the natural materials take center stage.
Glorious vein cut stone was used throughout, both in the common areas and in the guest rooms. The resort's neutral palette is complemented with injections of brass.
LOVE! This sun filled indoor/outdoor bathroom.
Now for the creme de la creme, the outdoor Sunset Lounge. An orgasmic wall of perfectly matched black marble is featured behind a limestone bar and paired with shagreen bar stools. Stunning!
The repetition of hanging fish sculptures on the back wall of one of the resort's restaurants, Aleta, makes for a striking focal point.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. Until next time, Lovelies.
