Window shades have two sides Floor-to-ceiling windows at the Line Hotel reveal a view that stretches north all the way to the Hollywood Hills. Sean Knibb kept the line of the window treatments clean--just horizontal shades that guests raise electronically--so as not to compete. Bonus feature: The shade exteriors are lined in green, yellow and blue fabric, making them attractive from the outside, too.
Fabric speaks volumes Knibb covered chairs with vintage Mexican serapes to add color, texture and a hint of heritage. Try folding a similar extra-large textile ($25) over a couch arm for the same effect.
Include an unexpected shiny moment Lancaster Chairs abound in a soon-to-be-opened Roy Choi restaurant, Pot. The recycled aluminum adds light and glamour to an otherwise windowless room.
Forget what’s in fashion Knibb loves paisley, even though he feels it’s having an off-trend moment. So he didn’t hesitate to use it when designing a carpet runner for the Line hallways. He also loves the look (and soundproofing) of a ’60s-era popcorn finish--so he replicated it on all hallway ceilings. It’s a messy job, so talk to a contractor if you want to try it at home.
Think outside the (concrete) box Knibb (here in a guest room) initially wanted to strip all the walls to the concrete base but found out they didn't all match. Instead, he came up with a creative way to fake the look. He photographed concrete, then designed wallpaper from the images at Astek in Van Nuys. (Yup, the wall behind Knibb is paper). We’re getting a bit of cement chic into our home with a side ($150) or coffee table ($400) from CB2.
Bright, funky and full of cutting-edge Angeleno style--that’s the vibe inside the new Line Hotel. While the just-opened property’s gotten buzz for its novel Koreatown location and upcoming Roy Choi restaurants, what’s wowing us is the design.
We took a walk through the space with interior designer Sean Knibb, who took a break from designing pads for celebs like Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz to do up his first hotel.
Here’s a look at some decorating principles we took away from our meeting.
