The Signature Print of Los Angeles
With its familiar pink façade, green and white stripes, banana-leaf wallpaper, and iconic logo, you could only be at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
The signature aesthetic of The Beverly Hills Hotel can be found well beyond our fabled red carpet entrance. Elements of it have been used in private homes, designers’ studios, retail outlets and more. We’ve even had big screen starring roles and inspired fashion collections. Today our landmark hotel’s eye-catching design elements have become synonymous with Southern California style.
Our much-loved Martinique banana leaf print was created by CW Stockwell, and introduced exclusively to the hotel in 1942 by decorator Don Loper. This bold and vibrant design has been touted as one of the most recognisable wallpapers in the world. It has an iconic status amongst designers and guests alike.
Several celebrated fashionistas have created their own version of our signature aesthetic in their designs. These include Dolce & Gabbana’s Charlotte Dellal Collection, and sportswear by American designer Michael Kors.
From screens big and small, to multi-platinum album covers, celebrities and musicians alike have all enjoyed scene-stealing moments and musical milestones at The Beverly Hills Hotel. You can spot the Martinique print in movies including The Aviator and California Suite, as pictured here showing Maggie Smith who won an Oscar for her role.
Our original inspiration has been reinvented and recreated in private residents and public venues around the globe and now it’s your turn. Bring a touch of palm print perfection into your home with a range of signature items available from our hotel and online shop. From tropical style silk pyjamas and trainers, to our signature mug and super soft pillowcases, all make very special reminders of your time with us.
