A Serene Hotel in Carmel, California


Design maverick Nicole Hollis masterminds new guest rooms at the Carmel Valley Ranch that channel a rustic, casual, and modern sensibility.

The Carmel Valley Ranch recently received an expansion courtesy of San Francisco–based interior designer Nicole Hollis.
The 12 new suites range from 400-600 square feet, including an outdoor living area.
"My philosophy is to keep it simple," Hollis says.
Concreteworks cast the custom outdoor soaking tub.
Hollis designed the custom outdoor bed, which is suspended by ropes.
With their neutral tones and natural materials, the rooms feel like an extension of the landscape.
A vintage wood lamp and turned bowl stands next to the bed.
The double-sided fireplace is wrapped in a custom surround made fron Cor-Ten steel.
The rooms look out onto the foothills around Carmel.
