Do you remember the episode of Million Dollar Decorators when Martyn Lawrence Bullard (love him so much) was redoing the Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs? Even though it aired last year, the renovation was actually completed almost 5 years ago. Look how great it still looks today.
Hotels are at a particularly high risk of looking dated very quickly so it’s a real testament to his talent that it still looks so good.
Having said that, however, the cabana did get a facelift by former J. Crew creative director Scott Formby recently:
I don’t have any pics of what it looked like before so who knows why they felt the need to revamp it. But apparently Formby stuck to Bullard’s original vibe, adding dark upholstery, greenery and brass pieces. How cool are the table and the detail on the loungers? I’d love an outdoor space like this….. if I actually spent any time outside, that is!
