More is more this holiday season at Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, located in the heart of glamorous Beverly Hills. For the Hotel’s skilled in-house floral team, Square Root Designs, old Hollywood glamour and the Art Deco era reminiscent of when the Hotel opened in 1928 provided the sparks that ignited this year’s festive installation. Big time drama unfolds as guests walk through the grand entrance where luxury and exuberance meet through ornately dressed nutcrackers, gilded star bursts and beautifully decorated Christmas trees – including a stunning 11-foot (3.4 metre) tree centrepiece surrounded by 25,000 crystals.
Smooth lines, geometric shapes, and bold colours represented one of the most popular design movements of the 20th century, Art Deco, which heavily influenced the 2015 holiday season at Beverly Wilshire. As well, Hollywood design legend Tony Duquette – an American artist well regarded for his lavishly ornate costumes, jewelry and set designs in the 1930s and 40s – inspired the regal Hollywood style that Square Root incorporated to deck the halls with rich shades of red, metallic gold, emerald greens and other jewel tones evocative of the magnificent characters movie stars portrayed during the 20s and 30s when the Hotel opened.
Hotel guests and local patrons can celebrate in style with a host of special events and offerings highlighted below:
Holiday Shopping Made Easy with Beverly Wilshire Holiday Pop-Up Shop and Gift Card “Drive Through”
Take a piece of the glitz and glamour home with Executive Pastry Chef Chris Ford’s edible chocolate ornaments – perfect for decorating at home, or surprising a loved one with a unique and memorable gift.
