Guided by the property’s idyllic setting, exclusivity and personalised, elevated service, HBA Los Angeles’ design for the 78 residential-style accommodations is a sophisticated tactile experience with a refined sense of aesthetic and the added embellishment of contemporised traditional detailing.

“To weave our story of place, our team drew upon elements of the California coast, The Del’s history, and the elegant charm of Beach Village with its distinct guest experience,” said HBA Los Angeles Senior Designer Lauren Hausner. “The result showcases a balance of the brand’s signatures with site-specific references.”

Layers of texture and neutral tones intuitively reflect the lively coast and establish a restorative rhythm throughout the interiors. Washed wood finishes nod to the elements of the surrounding environment. Inspirations from the golden sands of Coronado Beach and the ocean tide’s ebb and flow capture the interplay of light and shadow. Coastal blues introduced in the carpets and accent fabrics are both soothing and invigorating at the same time.

The cool, tonal palette allows the richness of warm, leather-like textures and updated accents to speak to the present, cohesively coexisting with traditionally refined detailing maintained in the crown moldings and kitchen cabinetry that honour the past. New arrangements of ample dining seating and oversized sofas beckon the entire family to congregate, encouraging memory-making for years to come. Adorning the walls are curated portraits of past celebrity guests in celebration of The Del’s rich history.

“This project holds significance for us, having led the original interior design of Beach Village when it opened in 2007,” said HBA Los Angeles Partner Kathleen Dauber. “Our goal with this renovation was to keep its timeless approachability while elevating its level of aspiration through exceptional quality in our design, where guests experience a sense of, ‘I want my home to feel like this.’”
