A Hollywood Gem

Dream Home #10

When I came across this Hollywood stunner in Architectural Digest I had to pick my jaw up off of the floor.  It was enough to push my originally prepared post of a Georgia Gothic home until next week.  This 3,500 sq. ft. (humble by Hollywood Hills standards) home is owned by hotelier Jeff Klein and film producer John Goldwyn.  It was built in 1951 by the great architect to the stars John Elgin Woolf.  It's a home with a strong Hollywood legacy and enough style to last a lifetime.  Klein and Goldwyn called on the talents of interior designer Madeline Stuart to make it a true dream home through and through.

The Hollywood regency style of the home continues to the garden that was originally designed by Thomas Church and updated by Wade Graham Landscape Studio.  

Floor to ceiling windows create drama and provide beautiful light for the living area.  Lounge chairs covered in Stark fabric and an Herm├Ęs throw lend a casual and warm feel to the space.

I can't get over this horn inlaid Karl Springer table that Klein inherited from his grandmother. It's just amazing beyond words.  Pairing this very modern table with traditional chairs and an antique bronze chandelier creates a comforting transitional space.

The bright and open kitchen follows a tried and true design style.  Simple white cabinets, marble counter tops and stainless appliances keep the space fresh.  Oh how I want a sub-zero fridge!  And those BK Antique pendants are perfection.

This stainless four poster bed was custom designed by Madeline Stuart for the space.  Cheerful
  E. Braun bedding brings the outdoors in with soft greens and yellows.  

I saved the best for last!  From the suede covered walls to the maple and oak parquet floors this screening room is full-on luxe.  Throw in a little copper molding and you have this girl weak in the knees.  This is true Hollywood style.
