Suite Escape

    Bungalow One’s living area melds midcentury-influenced pieces with organic elements. A curved sofa, created by the suite’s designer, Michael Berman, keeps company with an elm coffee table and slices of teak tree trunks, which hang on the wall. The terrace overlooks the hotel’s pool area. Photo by Meghan Beierle-O’Brien

    Contrasting, highly textural woods bolster Berman’s organic-meets-modern vibe in this guest bedroom. The Taracea bed, constructed of Douglas fir, plays against the grain found on the wall, which is actually wallpaper made from photographs of wood-impressed concrete taken by the artist Tom Haga. Above the desk (also by Taracea) is a 55-inch smart TV from Samsung. The drapes, made by Cy’s Drapery, are from fabric by Stacy Garcia. Photo by Meghan Beierle-O’Brien

    A long and narrow terrace borders the west side of the bungalow and features a series of seating areas, including a teak table and chairs from Restoration Hardware and a 20-foot-long banquette upholstered in Sunbrella fabrics. Photo by Meghan Beierle-O’Brien

    Berman created a free-flowing space in the master bathroom, which includes his American Moderne bath and shower fixtures for Rohl and a Lacava circular bathtub. Walker Zanger tiles, from Berman’s Studio Moderne collection, reach from floor to ceiling. Photo by Meghan Beierle-O’Brien

    In the master bedroom, Berman’s Bijou bed rests on a custom rug fashioned by Melrose Carpet and inspired by the late British designer David Hicks’s use of geometric patterns. Berman also designed the Paloma ceiling pendant and the nightstands. While the Photo by Meghan Beierle-O’BrienPhoto by Cordero Studios/www.corderostudios.com

Staying at Bungalow One by Robb Report Home & Style

SETTING: The spacious suite (1,800 square feet inside, 700 square feet outside) is located near the pool at the 4.5-acre, ocean-view Fairmont Miramar hotel in Santa Monica, Calif.

SLEEPING: The bedrooms—a master suite and two guest rooms, each with its own bathroom—have beds covered in Scandia down linens. Designer Michael Berman created shelves on the nightstands to hold the extra pillows, so that “you don’t end up throwing them on the floor like in so many hotels rooms.”

DIVERSIONS: Spa treatments or a private dinner for as many as 10 people can be enjoyed on the suite’s patio.

RATE: starting at $4,000 per night.
