.The beauty of an Estate Sale isn’t just in the decor — it’s in the unexpected excitement that no two sales are ever the same, and you never know what you’ll find. In last weekend’s Estate Sale, in a 1923 Mediterranean Chateau in Hollywood Hills, we had the bold, heavy, masculine style of an acclaimed interior designer who used unexpected scale and dark antiques to create a deeply sophisticated space full of treasures our guests were only too happy to snatch up!
This fabulous sale was located in Whitley Heights, the old Hollywood neighborhood where Rudolph Valentino, Carole Lombard and Judy Garland once lived. This awe-inspiring 1923 Mediterranean home was exquisitely decorated, featuring a wonderful blend of traditional old world European character and chic Hollywood style.
The collection was characterized by robust silhouettes and distinctive finishes. The rooms were seamlessly unified with fine quality, hand-finished furnishings, a serene neutral palette, accented by sparkling crystal chandeliers, silver accessories and expressive abstract nudes by the famed Greg Lauren that bring a depth and mood to the space.
The elegant yet relaxed interior showcased a beautiful mix of periods and styles. With a balance between masculine and feminine, formal and informal there is a perfect play of contrast with lighter creamy upholstery and rich wood finishes.
The home had been divinely curated. There was a softness in the lines and a strength in the scale, creating a unique atmosphere of grace, eclecticism and unparalleled taste!
We hope you’ll join us at our next estate. We’re not sure what you’ll find, but we know it will be good. Be sure to join our e-mail list for exclusive access and details ahead of everyone else!
