What do you get when you combine makeup mogul Bobbi Brown and real estate tycoon and entrepreneur Steven Plofker? The answer is a dynamic power couple and one super stylish bespoke hotel that’s put the small town of Montclair, New Jersey on our radar (swoon!). Declaring that she was taking a back seat to her cosmetic empire back in late 2016, makeup maven Bobbi Brown immediately set her stylish sights on a brand new venture, cue urban planner hubby and a collection of handpicked furnishings from around the world and here we are, crushing over the stunningly restored red brick Georgian Estate known as “The George”.

Just a 40 minute drive from New York, the hotel is every inch as sophisticated and stylish as Brown herself, having been inspired by her passion for travel and design. You wouldn’t know from looking at it, but this beautiful property was in a very different state when the duo found it. It’s evident that Brown has applied the same vision to the restoration as she did to her cosmetic line, with the prime focus on reviving the natural beauty of the building, with a few signature enhancements. Perhaps most notably, the stunning entrance with its effortless fusion of new and old, and the high ceilings, rich dark floorboards and turn of the century accents giving a hint of the buildings’ history. Whilst the eclectic art, pops of colour and modern furnishings give us a taste of Brown’s unique style. To say this unique combination works, is a crazy understatement.

The magic doesn’t stop at the entrance though, with possibly the most exciting transformation seen in the hotel’s rooms. Unlike your run-of-the-mill hotels, Brown has put a fun new spin on the room numbers by replacing them with names and decorating each room accordingly. A stay in the “Jack” room comes complete with a range of luxe appliances, like the bright red SMEG bar fridge and matching red Nespresso machine, plus a collection of famous “Jack” memorabilia, including a Jack Black portrait, a book of Jacqueline Kennedy and a bunch of other fabulously eclectic pieces. But the one thing you can expect in every room is a sleek design accented by pops of colour and a slight British influence. Pulling inspiration from her travels and favourite local companies, the surprisingly seamless combination of modern, vintage and eccentric will give you all those #homeinspo feels.
