In Living Style: Hotel-Inspired Décor
Not only is the Beverly Hills Hotel a legend, it's hosted some very legendary affairs (Warren Beatty used a poolside bungalow for all of his trysts!). It's since had a major makeover, but the designers who gave this Southern California destination a facelift stuck with a Hollywood Regency theme. Get this understated glamorous look in your own bedroom with gold accents and mid-century regency-style furniture (every siren needs a fainting couch!) that has a hint of chinoiserie (read: dresser).

Say yes to the coastal-cool vibe of Castle Hill Inn in Newport, Rhode Island. Bright whites and aqua blues bring the ocean indoors for a relaxing stay.

There's no better refuge from reality than the Napa Valley's Auberge du Soleil. Not only are the grounds heaven on earth (they overlook a valley of vineyards!), their rooms are designed in natural tones with textural elements. Create this look in your bedroom with a Moroccan-inspired wood headboard, crisp monogrammed linens and accents with a safari-chic element.

Hawaii is one of those magical places, especially at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai.

Stick to natural hardwoods—try out a faux bamboo dresser and a jute rug for maximum impact. Tropical leaf prints and a live orchid plant will have you saying aloha in no time.
Located deep in the hustle and bustle of New York City, the Andaz Wall Street hotel has created a soothing getaway from Manhattan's Financial District.
