The serene rooms then make way to the very different look of the Coral Bar, described in the September issue of Vogue: "Inspired by fiery-colored flora and fauna found under the sea, (Wearstler) chose a bar made of shagreen and topped with rich Persian travertine, vermilion leather chairs, and a 22K antique gold leaf mural swimming with shimmering fish."
