Miami Beach’s circa-1940 Plymouth hotel is scheduled to reopen this June following an overhaul. Located in the Collins Park cultural district, the Plymouth got its facelift from New York-based designer Fernando Santangelo.

Upon completion, the Art Deco property will have a streetfront terrace, complete with swing benches and potted palm trees. The lobby will have murals by American artist Roman Chatov, whose jewel tones serve as inspiration for Santangelo’s blue, green and red color scheme.

There will be small pockets in the oval lobby for private interactions. Santangelo will incorporate tones of almond, ruby, grappa and aubergine into the tiny spaces with hand picked vintage chairs, lamps and sofas. Green hues will be offset by leather and wood furnishings, and handcrafted wallcoverings and custom onyx and brass fixtures will complete the space.

The guestrooms will be inspired by British members-only clubs, the Mediterranean, as well as beach houses.

Architects from New York’s Asfour Guzy teamed with chefs Bruce and Eric Bromberg and sushi chef Toshi Ueki for the Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill. It will have an oval pool that will mimic the shape of the lobby and will serve as a backdrop to the restaurant, set against coral cabanas and bougainvillea-covered walls.
