Lords Of South Beach Miami

The young NY-based design firm BHDM, designed the Lords Of South Beach Hotel, a gay boutique hotel located in Miami Beach.

Here is the project description:

Lords South Beach is the first gay boutique hotel brand in the US, and the hotel just opened this year in Miami Beach. The concept has been very well received, and Brian Gorman – owner of the hotel and founder of the Lords brand – has plans to open in other US cities. Located at 11th Street and Collins in the heart of South Beach in the former Nash Hotel space, the design is spirited and playful, with unexpected touches, and uniforms custom designed by Levis. There are 54 rooms and a variety of hotel venues, including the Cha Cha Rooster Restaurant, the Cabana pool bar, and a lobby bar with cocktail partner Absolut.

The space was designed by BHDM - a young NY-based design firm whose recent projects include The Lion restaurant in New York and the soon-to-open Cotta restaurant. Partners Dan Mazzarini and Brian Humphrey have worked on a diverse array of residential and commercial projects, including creating custom-designed furniture pieces as they did for Lords. Dan’s past experience includes his role as a Design Director at Ralph Lauren where he designed over 100 stores in 16 countries. Brian worked as Director at Calvin Klein as well as Ralph Lauren Home as a product designer.

Lil' Wayne- How To Love

I fell in love with Lil' Wayne awhile back when I watched his True Story on VH1 after finding out about his life growing up it gave me a new appreciation for him. And that he usually does most of his songs in one take which would be very difficult to do without raw talent. This song right here is amazing and so is the video.....

Society Social Shop

I came across Society Social's Blog And Catalog and thought everything about it was wonderful! I want all of the items that Roxy and her team have designed, from beautiful sofas and club chairs to stylish bar carts, and amazing chairs in every color of the rainbow. The outdoor cocktail party set was my favorite, ridiculously adorable! They even carry hostess gowns ( so me!) in bright bold colors. Sooooo RIDICULOUSLY RIDICULOUS!
 At Society Social, we enthusiastically subscribe to living sparkly - as in vivacious, legendary, always ridiculous, and never for a second boring! We believe in following your heart and chasing your dreams, after all that's why we're here. We believe that life is a grand celebration, that means every day, and poppin' bottles is something we do with frightening regularity. It is this contagious joie de vivre and our tremendous love for a shared celebration that inspires every piece we create. We hope our handcrafted line from the colorful cocktail carts to our playful haute hostess attire induce frolic and merriment from our home to yours.
