Say the word 'Hollywood' and glamorous, sparkling, lavish images come to mind. In Hollywood Houses, bestselling design and style author Diane Dorrans Saeks takes readers on a magical insider's tour of some of the most beautiful and alluring private houses, classic residences and historic hotels Hollywood has to offer. Behind the clipped hedges, immaculate gardens and locked doors of these palm-punctuated neighbourhoods are the residences of some of the most famous movie stars and musicians in the world, designed by such star architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Williams, R.
M. Schindler and Richard Neutra. While these inspiring interiors offer opulence, they also feature witty design creativity, inventive architecture, and a chic sensibility that are a welcome respite from the razzle-dazzle of Hollywood.
These are interiors that are created with not only elegance but a sense of fun. Each one is lived in and loved. Each one is beautiful yet completely original.
With pictures by a selection of Hollywood's top photographers, these pages display an insider's look at the personal style of culture's most influential trendsetters. An exciting and inspiring look at glamour behind the scenes, Hollywood Houses is a stunning tribute to exuberant style in all its decadence.
