Since we’re all working remotely , I thought it might be fun to share with you the spaces I’m blessed to call “home.”

I’m so very blessed to have the Villa Grigio in Palm Springs to escape to (named partially for its pale grey color but mostly for the quantity of Pinot Grigio consumed within its walls! ). Click here to see more photos of Villa Grigio.
Upon seeing this house for the first time, I immediately fell in love with the oddly shaped rooms, curved walls, well-worn floors, and uneven lath and plaster. Built in 1922, the house was first home to Rudolph Valentino. Next, Gloria Swanson moved in, creating the dining room by enclosing the sun porch ( her french chandelier hangs there to this day).
Perched on a hill above the Chateau Marmont, the 1923 Spanish villa has a storied past. Ike and Tina Turner once harmonized in its entryway, and in the 1960s its then-owners, Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward, entertained a bohemian swirl of old and new Hollywood, rock royalty, and Hells Angels here.
