The Downtown L.A. Hotel You’ll Wanna Live In

Have you ever noticed how some of the most enticing and downright relaxing-looking spaces in the world are hotels? Of course you have. Well, why not outfit your home to mimic some of their best features so that you can feel like you’re on vacation any ol’ Saturday? The brand-new NoMad Los Angeles is over-the-top chic—think a rooftop pool that looks airlifted from the Tuscan countryside and stripped-down Art Deco interiors. Even if you can’t visit yourself, we have all sorts of ideas for how you can bring its look to your own space.

What to Know If You Go


Vibe: Grown-up, jewel-toned, and luxe. Think the villa from Call Me By Your Name, transplanted to Downtown L.A. (DTLA, to those in the know).

Fun fact: The hotel is in a 1920s building dubbed Giannini Place, which was originally the Los Angeles headquarters of the Bank of Italy.

Notable neighbors: The Broad Museum, The Last Bookstore, Grand Central Market, Guisados, and Commissary.

How to Cozy Up to the Aesthetic at Home


Rich navy tones, hints of brass, and rich textiles like velvet are all a part of what makes this vibe feel so luxe—and, luckily, they’re all easy notes to strike at home. To break things up a bit, add some large-scale floral prints—bonus: They’ll stand out even more against crisp white walls.
