Ezralow Design‘s objective with this boutique hotel project was to reintroduce the original intent; to achieve relaxed luxury, and barefoot elegance. To do this, Kamini Ezralow took inspiration from the glamour period of the 50s and 60s Santa Barbara lifestyle, which was the initial inspiration for the creator of the hotel.
Incorporating artisanal hand woven carpets from the South of France and elegant, traditional Portuguese furniture – layering in accent pieces to connect it to the present – and finishing with impressive fabrics using linens and other natural blends, contributed to creating the comfortable yet chic Santa Barbara ambiance.
The colour palette was selected to integrate with the freshness of the beautiful gardens surrounding the rooms and used as a tool to bring the outside in by creating a visual colour connection for the guest. This, in addition to the bespoke designed furniture, created an energetic flow which immediately facilitated the relaxation and comfort of the guests upon entering. These subtle yet significant details make all the difference.
