Sally Breer inspired by boho beach community for Hotel Erwin remodel

The Hotel Erwin reopened in Venice Beach, inspired by the soul of the boho beach community, 1970s bohemia and the Venice Beach’s boardwalk.

The Hotel Erwin reopened in Calofornia's Venice Beach following a renovation led by Los Angeles-based designer Sally Breer of Co-Mingle. Design-wise, the property was said to be inspired by the soul of the "boho" beach community, 1970s bohemia and the Venice Beach’s boardwalk.

Following the remodel, the property’s colors and furniture evoke the design movements of the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s. The color palette used includes retro blue, green and yellow, mixed with textured indigo carpeting. The 33 suites and 86 guestrooms have elliptical orange lamps flanking the beds, chrome nightstands, wicker chairs, stand-up orb lamps and vases of peacock feathers. The suites have sectional sofas in the living rooms, as well as private balconies and separate bedrooms.

Public venues include the High Rooftop Lounge, the ground-floor restaurant Barlo Kitchen & Cocktails, and the multifunctional space Larry’s Loft, which was named for artist Larry Bell, who curated the hotel’s art collection.
