Fairmont Miramar Unveils $1 Million Redesign Of Bungalow:

The Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica last month unveiled its million-dollar redesign of Bungalow One – a customized three-bedroom suite designed by L.A.-based interior designer Michael Berman.

The Fairmont held an unveil party June 27 in collaboration with Robb Report Home & Style magazine.

Inspired by the pages of the magazine, Bungalow One is the convergence of a Southern California beach house with a glamorous mid-century pad.

The result of the redesign is a fully tailored three-bedroom, three-and-three-quarter-bath retreat, including a 1,000-square-foot private patio with private access to the hotel’s gardens and pool.

This new bungalow suite combines a fresh color palette with organic elements throughout, integrating cooling gray-blue hues, natural textures, custom lighting, and local-inspired vintage artwork, reflective of the Santa Monica beach community.

“Every project I design is synonymous with the environment that it is in,” Berman said. “Bungalow One – I call it ‘Surf-Modern’ – mirrors that feeling of early, easy Southern California life with a hint of unexpected subtleties.”

Choosing specific pieces from his Limited and Bronze Studio collections, Berman included his best-selling, custom California king bed frame to anchor the handcrafted Vi-Spring bed from London, which is designed with real Shetland wool, raw silk, cashmere, and bamboo to ensure a purely dreamlike mood.

Floating above the master bed, the seagull pendent fixture soars against the magical Medici blue ceiling, imparting a tranquil ambience.

The serenity of the master bedroom is deliberately connected to the open marble mosaic walled wet room, enclosed by switch-activated, dimmable privacy glass.

At the center of the wet room stands the sumptuous round Lacava tub, a lounge-worthy plunge bath evoking a lavish sanctuary.

MSD Hospitality asset manager Ellis O’Connor said the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows and its historical significance stemmed from the film industry’s golden age, when the property was a sought-after haven for Hollywood luminaries from Greta Garbo to Marilyn Monroe.

“Today Michael Berman and his team have transformed and customized Bungalow One into an enhanced experience that uniquely captures the sense of place that once drew our golden-era guests to the property while also introducing an authentic and rich experience of modern-day Santa Monica,” O’Connor said.

Bungalow One is available to reserve as an entire suite for $4,000/night, including the option to reserve as a one-bedroom for $2,500/night or a two-bedroom for $3,250/night for more intimate overnight stays.
