Fine art photographer Gray Malin has debuted his first experiential design project, the Gray Malin Cabana at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
The cabanas at the hotel are synonymous with luxurious leisure, which Malin honors through his curated redesign. Marking a milestone for the Gray Malin brand, designing this cabana was his first comprehensive design project and features a public display of his artwork. Designed with a classic and chic California style, Malin partnered with Serena & Lily to outfit the cabana with the brand’s coastal-meets-sophisticated furnishings, paying tribute to the iconic design and history of the hotel with CW Stockwell’s signature banana leaf wallpaper, Martinique, which has adorned the walls of the Beverly Hills Hotel since it was first installed in 1949.
The color palette draws inspiration from relaxing coastal tones and vintage glamour, incorporating natural hues such as sand, pink, white, and green in an array of solid and patterned fabrics and textiles. Rattans, raffias and other natural textures makes the cabana feel like a relaxing retreat, with elements like refined custom chaises, a handwoven rug, hanging chair, and a sofa.
