Seaside Luxury Hotel Brings Summertime Design to Santa Monica

Property of Hotel Casa Del Mar

Hotel Casa del Mar, Santa Monica’s acclaimed oceanfront luxury hotel, is bringing seaside summer style to life with a new pop-up shop and partnership with Rooms & Gardens, the renowned design and home furnishings store with locations in Santa Barbara and Santa Monica. Open now through Labor Day in Hotel Casa del Mar’s spacious Pacific-facing lobby, the pop-up shop offers guests the opportunity to incorporate coveted elements of the luxury hotel’s Mediterranean villa-inspired accommodations into their own homes.

“As an arbiter of coastal luxury, Hotel Casa del Mar is delighted to offer guests a chance to furnish with pieces that bring the beachside home,” said Charlie Lopez-Quintana, Hotel Casa del Mar General Manager. “The collection exudes the authenticity of a Southern California luxury beach club.”

For over 25 years, Rooms & Gardens has been sought-after for its eclectic mix of classic furnishings layered with globally sourced accents inspired by the designers’ world travels and Southern California beach lifestyle. Nearly all of its furniture is custom-made in Los Angeles, allowing the store to create individual pieces for its clients.

“Our mission since we opened our first store in Santa Barbara has always been to provide a sophisticated, classic, yet comfortable and inviting style in our stores,” said Rooms & Gardens founder Eric Voulgaris. “Our pop-up at Hotel Casa del Mar is a unique shopping experience that perfectly captures our aesthetic.”

The pop-up features designer products from Los Angeles-based design icons such as Peter Dunham, Martin Lawrence Bullard and JASPER by Michael S. Smith as well as original artworks curated by Rooms & Gardens owners Eric and Jami Voulgaris, who selected pieces from local artists. Original works by Southern California-based artists Garrett Speirs and Cynthia Eddings and others are available for purchase exclusively at the shop alongside locally made custom furniture, decorative pillows, throws, and thoughtful gift items, including Finn & Co. bath products, Nest candles, and vintage California flags.

Located on the Pacific coast of Santa Monica, Hotel Casa del Mar embodies the effortlessness of Santa Monica with the grandeur of Mediterranean villas. The spacious lobby, recently redesigned by Michael Smith, is a sought-after spot for visitors and locals to enjoy cocktails and meals against a panoramic backdrop of the beach and glittering ocean. The hotel’s 113 residential-style guestrooms and 16 suites, all newly redesigned by Rooms & Gardens, showcase modern coastal designs and sweeping views of the coastline from Palos Verdes to Malibu.
