Great room interior design ideas can come from anywhere. Take The Iron Horse Hotel, for instance: terrific everything in this hotel room and its entry-slash-bar space. The use of floor tile extending up the wall in the entry is so smart–I can imagine how easy that is to clean, can’t you? And the mix of sleek leather in the office chair, patterned upholstery in the arm chair, and what looks like cowhide on the bed-foot bench makes for great variety–both visually and texturally. I’m not exactly sure if you need to bring your own motorgear, such as the jackets, helmets and boots above, or if they are standard amenities.

Serious Sinatra fanatics will most likely freak out to learn his Palm Springs estate is available as a (high end) vacation rental–either in a good way (because they can’t believe ordinary mortals–with money–can stay there) or in a bad way (because they can’t believe ordinary mortals–with no ties to the man himself–can stay there). Honestly, while the architecture and grounds are amazing, the interiors are mostly drab. But I assume that won’t matter to someone who really only wants to party like the Rat Pack used to.

Don’t know if it’s on the map or not, but this would look great in it. (Um, what’s “The Office,” Alex?) Okay, I’ll admit it was a stretch at best, but this would be a fun addition to the movie poster collection you may have already begun for your space. Take a closer look and discover scores of films in this retro LA street map style artwork.
I’ve always said there’s nothing better than when simple design is done well. These Eames dining chairs are the epitome of that philosophy–working beautifully in this MCM space as well as in the more GLAMasculine room in my previous post. Having eight of these for my dining table would put just the right polish on my own home.
