On Offer: With Kelly Wearstler’s touch, the high-end Proper Hotels has been a fan favorite for its vibrant design and local touches since its 2017 debut in San Francisco. Now comes the Hotel June, a spinoff property that recently opened its doors on the Westside of Los Angeles. Like any savvy younger sister, the brand blazed its own path while still channeling the family DNA. June is more approachable and relaxed, with a breezy California-style design by Venice-based Studio Collective. Housed inside a 1960s modernist building by Welton Becket, the architect responsible for iconic fixtures of L.A.’s cityscape such as the Capitol Records building and Koreatown’s Equitable Life skyscraper, the interiors are airy and bright, with earthy tones thanks to the use of warm natural woods, mustard-hued terrazzo, and pops of muted color.
Standout Features: Notable ties to Proper include plush Fili D’oro linens, bathrooms stocked with Aesop products, handmade tiles, and local art. While the lobby is outfitted with a custom mural by Brooklyn-based artist Alex Proba, Studio Collective looked closer to home for the hotel’s wallpaper: a selection was designed by Becket’s granddaughter, Alexandra Becket. The outdoor restaurant, Caravan Swim Club, is helmed by Scopa alum Steve Livigni and serves up Baja-inspired dishes and small-batch tequilas on a terrace overlooking the pool—a fortuitous setup for alfresco restaurant culture.
