Le Meridien Delfina – Santa Monica, CA
Located just blocks from the iconic Santa Monica Pier, Le Méridien Delfina Santa Monica is a property whose essence is all about sunny days at the beach with a luxury feel. In working on the redesign of this property, the goal for our team of hospitality art consultants was to select hotel art with a contemporary feel that would create an atmosphere as relaxed as a summer day spent at the beach.

Upon entering the hotel lobby you’re greeted by a three-dimensional textural wall art piece featuring the words of iconic 20th century Californian poet Robinson Jeffers, custom created for this space by artist H. Barton Tippets. This portion of his ode to the beauty of the natural world sets the tone for the terrestrial elements that inspired our work at the Delfina, including another large wall piece that evokes the movement of air and ocean currents. Just outside, an eye-catching sculptural piece in blues and golds hangs above guests seated in the large room areas, bringing the ocean that much closer to visitors of this beautiful beach getaway.
“Working on this project for Le Meridien Delfina let us experiment with ways to represent earth elements in interesting ways and infuse the majesty of the Pacific Ocean in every piece of art. Mixing contemporary art pieces with a timeless awe of the natural world– that’s a style I love to see in a beach property.”
