Martyn Lawrence Bullard Leaves A Signature Mark On A New LA Hotel
Martyn Lawrence Bullard has a very specific signature mark that can be seen throughout his interior design projects. Over the years, this incredibly talented and very well known name in the modern design world has created for himself a very distinct style. It is a style that he knows how to do well and he easily excels at. Today, we see this signature style at an exciting new hotel in LA.
Instead of following trends, Martyn Lawrence Bullard seeks to set new trends and often finds inspiration from the past. The results unravel into highly coveted spaces. So, when PRG Hospitality Group announced plans to open a boutique hotel in Los Angeles’ Whitley Heights, Bullard was a natural choice.
The Lobby Bar
The Prospect Hollywood is an elegant 1939 Hollywood Regency-style building in the neighbourhood of Whitley Heights. As the home for stars like Rudolph Valentino, Jean Harlow, and James Dean, the neighbourhood has become symbolic as the birthplace of what is now Hollywood. It continues to be one of the primary creative and cultural hubs in Los Angeles.
Today, the Prospect Hollywood has undergone a transformative restoration, while paying homage to the history and authenticity inherent in the architecture and neighbourhood.
Reimagined by PRG Hospitality Group in collaboration with designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, the luxury hotel has been updated with a sophisticated sensibility, while incorporating the glamour of the era. Using custom and vintage furnishings, the Prospect presents each guest with a distinct experience.
Here bright colours and patterned finishes are embraced – from the floors to the ceiling.
This exclusive hotel offers 24 unique guest rooms, including two junior suites. Each Martyn Lawrence Bullard designed room was inspired by the property’s Hollywood history and former neighbourhood residents.
Bullard brings each room to new life with a Hollywood Regency foundation incorporating custom furnishings and vintage accents. Each room is uniquely designed to have its own look and feel.
Gold-leafed ceilings and custom wallpaper, leopard-print carpeting, vintage furniture, and an array of artwork are some of the guest room highlights.
