The SLS South Beach Sure Looks Sexy (Thanks to That Mirror on the Ceiling)
The SLS South Beach doesn't open for another two months but we're finally getting a little more insight as to what the second-ever SLS Hotel will look like.
And like most things, in South Beach, it will be oozing sex appeal. But only up in the guestrooms. The rest of the joint is taking an eclectic design approach.
USA Today has some scoop on the interior design details of the hotel including a retro American camp theme at reception:
The reception desk is made from a distressed slab of wood; the lighting, from an antique wood kayak hanging from the ceiling. Vintage shots of camping trips reinforce the camp theme.
Down at Bazaar, the restaurant from Chef Jose Andres (which is also found in the first SLS Hotel in Los Angeles), Philippe Starck designed a room that is to be covered in grandma-approved art in only one color, acid yellow.
Expect love-it-or-hate-it acid yellow touches throughout the room - in photographs, on book shelves and in paintings.
In the Katsuya restaurant, diners will be look on at two 20-foot-tall images of an elderly Japanese man and woman from the early 1940s.
Meanwhile, you can get a better idea of the sexified guestrooms on the SLS South Beach website which now has photos of several aspects of the rooms including the mirror on the ceiling and the rose-colored accents in the bathroom.
Right now the hotel is still set for a June 14 opening and rooms are holding steady at $350 a night. However, we have heard the hotel might open even earlier than that. As always, we'll keep you posted.
