“The idea for Palihouse was to do a residential-style property with a pied-à-terre sensibility”.

One thing I love about small boutique hotels is that they often push the envelope in terms of what’s aesthetically acceptable—this is what makes them stand out from the crowd after all. Few of us may consider it a good idea to mix dusty pink and teal velvet with orange & black plaid and wicker furniture. But one hotel owner—Avi Brosh—thought this was not only appropriate, but essential to creating a unique experience nestled in comfort and his curated vision of recreating the “real life”.

Enter the Palihouse Santa Monica, part of the Paligroup, a small group of boutique hotels in Los Angeles focused on making people feel at home in a hotel setting. In a place where entertainment industry bigwigs are often outposted for months at a time, Brosh really couldn’t have been more on point with his vision—a residential-style, five-star coastal retreat for world travelers and tastemakers.

    Wow, what a unique hotel!! This past December, I completed my final semester at design school. The Palihouse Santa Monica makes me wish I had designed a boutique hotel for my final project, instead of a retail space!
