Dream Hollywood is a property that aims to “elevate from every angle.” Driven to offer a radical, imaginative guest experience, this boutique hotel is nestled in the Hollywood Hills and just minutes away from the iconic and unparalleled Hollywood Boulevard. It’s expected that guests wander into local eateries and stumble upon treasures like Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and Rodeo Drive.
The local scene is focused on the latest design trends with a chic, glamorous attitude that flows through every street. This adventurous and flashy spirit is reflected in the hotel’s decor and amenities, which include luxurious black walnut finishes, rainfall showers and more. When you step into a Dream Hollywood guest room, you’re supposed to feel transported to another space.
Because of this significant interest in the modern traveler, Dream Hollywood wanted to do something special with their lighting controls. Despite the many rich features, they didn’t want to break the bank on electrical devices. They needed to add stunning details on a budget, which was easy with the adorne Collection.
The adorne Collection from Legrand sets itself apart from other lighting controls with its elevated design, but price can often shy people away. However, there are many ways to work around a big spend on electrical with the adorne Collection.
Legrand recommended adorne devices with plastic wall plates, which fit nicely within budget. We also suggested magnesium plastic wall plates because they give off the appearance of a true metallic finish without the higher cost. This particular choice worked exceptionally well with the Dream Hollywood aesthetic. It was flashy with a current of industrial woven into it. The magnesium finish is a stunning option that doesn’t disappear into the wall, but also doesn’t draw unnecessary attention. It complements the decor around it in a subtle way that blends in, yet still makes a statement. Fingerprints don’t show, and it also ages quite well.
Dream Hollywood installed adorne in each of their guest rooms and throughout several of their high-impact public spaces.
Located conveniently right beside the bed and in the headboard, adorne Paddle™ Switches, standard power outlets and USB ports were combined with a 4-gang wall plate for an impressive bedside charging station.
Dream Hollywood opened its doors and made a huge splash. The property was a hit and was featured in many publications, including The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler, Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar.
While plenty of attention was paid to amenities like the magical rooftop pool that transforms into a stage, the adorne devices also left their mark. A powerful detail that is often overlooked, the magnesium plastic wall plates helped lift the entire aesthetic of each room.
