Nina Petronzio designs Suite 100 at Montage Beverly Hills

Montage Beverly Hills unveiled the design details of its Suite 100, which underwent renovations as part of Beverly Hills’ 2014 Centennial celebration. In recognition of the event, five of the city’s luxury hotels are redecorating one of their suites to reflect a particular decade.                                      

Suite 100 at Montage Beverly Hills captures the spirit of 1940s film noir. Led by locally based designer Nina Petronzio, the design has vintage details such as a historic phonograph, big band vinyl records and a collection of 1940s literature, games, movies, music, drinks and edibles.

According to Petonzio, for the renovation, she wanted to create something more unexpected than a typical Hollywood glamour theme.  Thus, the film noir provided a feeling and sensibility exuding mystique, allure and elegance, qualities prominent in classic Hollywood crime dramas.
