New Jersey

The only situation this Jersey Shore hideaway presents is the question of which of the fabulous 24 oversized rooms, all designed by Bravolebrities Robert and Cortnev Novogratz, to choose. The husband and wife principles of Sixx Design, known for tongue-in-cheek chic, put the final touches on exclusive Long Branch’s only boutique hotel, just as their hit show 9 by Design hit the airwaves. The same mod-bohemian style seen on the series
pervades this beachfront outpost, which evokes St. Tropez
far better than anything GTL. Treating the hot spot as they would their homes, the couple picked up Technicolor dream finds from flea markets in Paris, Moss in Manhattan and midcentury Modern showrooms throughout the world. The famed Obama desk designer John Houshmand crafted the bar and lobby, while art from Slim Aarons’ photography to Brit wit Ann Carrington’s collages hang throughout the stunning expanse. The couple’s already working on the space’s nearby sister hotel, Cabana, set to open in 2012. $249-$979 nightly. bungalowhotel.net
