Place Most Likely to Appear in Wallpaper 

Paragon Bar & Cafe at Claremont Resort

Bright orange cow-hair stools alternate with blocky cream- and chestnut-brown leather armchairs around glowing red-gold resin cubes. Their light is echoed in the illuminated orange panels flanking the marble bar and the hostess station, while a cool white glow emanates from the shelves of liquor bottles. Small square plots of wheatgrass adorn each table. Paragon's clean lines, audacious color combinations, and juxtaposition of earthy and gleefully artificial make it the perfect set for a glamour photo shoot. Some of the well-heeled diners, who have the sleek visage of the rich and yup-and-coming, look like they could make an appearance between the pages of the design mag Wallpaper. They come for the live jazz or the DJ more than for the food, which is pleasant but not as chic as the surroundings. Now that summer's coming, take a seat on the outdoor deck and take in the best wallpaper of all: the glimmering city sprawl down below.
