Villa Grigio

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.

In my living room, Vladimir Kagan sofas (at left) flank an Angelo Mangiarotti cocktail table. Custom-made circular sofas are dressed in Kravet fabric. Wallpaper by Cole & Son.
A sexy corner: the screening room, complete with emerald lacquer walls, Anja Niemi artworks and a vintage Sonneman lamp. Ceiling paper from is from Cole & Son.
The entry to my bedroom features a Karl Springer cabinet, Milo Baughman chairs and a table that once belonged to Yves St. Laurent.

Villa Swanson

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).

A little diffused lamplight sets the mood. For my living room, I chose the Christopher Spitzmiller tulip lamps. Their exotic shape reflects light beautifully while the gold-leaf bases add just enough glamour.
I originally made the moorish-style mirrors for Cher , but she ended up getting taller ones so I happily inherited these and they became the highlight of the room. Chairs are covered in fabrics from my Schumacher collection.
I love to furnish outdoor spaces like indoor rooms. Here in my own Hollywood garden, a cozy seating niche is given character with a mirror and Indian metal lanterns. The fabrics are from my own collection for Schumacher.

West Hollywood

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.

My poolside lounging area is covered in terra-cotta performance fabric designed exclusively for Perennials. Pillows are made from my own “Harem Shuffle” and “Star Power” designs, adding exotic flavor! Paired with Made Goods’ Dagen coffee table, it’s the perfect spot to enjoy my morning coffee, afternoon tea, evening cocktail and everything in between!
My firepit and “lounging nook” is fortuitously located next to my bar! Dressed in fabrics from my Perennials Fabrics line, it’s one of the coziest spots in the garden.
