Luxe-urious!!! Greystone Showhouse-WOW!

Maison de Luxe, the 2015 Designer Show House being held at the Doheney Greystone Estate in Beverly Hills this year is a must see, you only have one more week to go, so if you can’t make it, here is a little taste! Twenty-three renowned designers showcased the forty-six thousand square foot stone mansion to perfection!!  Here is a bit of what I saw, technically you were not supposed to take photos, but every time I asked I was told, “Sure!!!” Some of you that know me will assume I didn’t ask, but I promise, I did!

You enter the mansion through the courtyard and being that we were in southern California, of course it was a beautiful day! But all that bright sun through the windows made it a challenge to get good pictures.

So pretty, but truly it’s sooo much more beautiful in person…

Mark D. Sikes did the first floor halls that he transformed into a garden conservatory using gorgeous blues and greens that were both whimsical and elegant.

One of the best rooms was the library by Timothy Corrigan. It’s a juxtaposition of serious and playful. I loved how comfortable it felt… like you could really live there, not so “decorator showcase house” like you see at some of the shows.

He also did this upper landing, these antique french chairs were sooo special!

I loved Patrick Dragonette’s “Room Without A View”, he had a room with relatively no views but he created a fabulous space with a bar, a lounging area and a custom Caesarstone ping-pong table that he let us play on!

Andrew Brown from Birminham, Alabama was such a pleasure to meet and hear about his masculine “moody” space, there were so many renowned designers on hand that talked about their accomplishments.

Seeing a room designed and executed by Nina Campbell was truly a pleasure, seeing her vision while using her own wall coverings and fabrics in an installation was inspiring!

The gardens around the mansion are spectacular and are open year round to the public, if you can’t make it to the showhouse, plan a hike to and around this beautiful estate! And.. there is a fascinating history of the mansion that you must read… Murder, Mystery and Mansion!!!
