Jeff Andrews Hollywood bedroom

“The irregular shape of this master bedroom led me to create a number of large custom pieces, including the bed,” says designer Jeff Andrews. The bed, which is covered in Romo velvet, is flanked by Rueil commodes in lacquered walnut with Lucite handles and brass accents from Jean de Merry. The vintage Lucite and gold lamps are from Fat Chance.

“The untitled 2001 oil painting by Raymond Han hanging on the far wall is the center of style in this bright kitchen,” Andrews says. A pair of vintage white Murano glass chandeliers by Paul Ferrante are installed above the dual islands.

“The antique French fireplace surround was a starting point for this particular living room,” says Andrews, who also notes that it inspired the overall aesthetic. A custom-framed hand-antiqued wall mirror features sconces from Jean de Merry and a Mr. Crowley hair-on-hide rug in ivory chevron from Kyle Bunting.

“The furniture is a mix of antique ’40s, ’50s and ’70s pieces — all with classic lines yet updated with fabrics and materials,” Martyn Lawrence Bullard says of Villa Luna, a home in West Hollywood. The living room features a pair of light fixtures from Bullard’s MLB Atelier, a Jean de Merry coffee table and a console from Bourgeois Bohème. The art is by Retna.

Madeline Stuart Hollywood game room

The bar and games room of this Hollywood Regency–style home by Madeline Stuart was inspired by the spectacular living room that William Haines designed for legendary director George Cukor. The suede-paneled walls are topped with copper molding, and the mohair seating and leather chairs were custom made by Stuart’s firm. The antique Italian walnut game table is from BK Antiques, and the 1970s brass and glass coffee table is French.

Kishani Perera Hollywood Hills office

“We created a room that was masculine, sparse but warm, with the various woods and leathers,” Kishani Perera says of the office in this Hollywood Hills home. “The rest of the house was rather colorful, so it was important that the office remain a calm and serene departure. “The room’s mid-century feel was inspired by the vintage desk that the client had acquired years ago. The office also includes a Charles and Ray Eames chair and a drip-glazed vintage lamp.

Kishani Perera Hollywood Hills dining room

“The chartreuse color in the dining room actually inspired the entire space,” Perera says. “When my client purchased the home, the color was existing, and he told me that was one of the reasons he loved the house so much! My instinct would have been to repaint, but since it was such an important element for him, we ensured that the eclectic and colorful decor we found complemented the shocking shade.” The dining table and pendant light are from Environment Furniture, and the chairs are vintage.

Peter Dunham Hollywood pool house

Peter Dunham designed this pool house and screening room — which once belonged to Merv Griffin — for Juicy Couture cofounder Pamela Levy. “The first piece we purchased was the huge 18th-century Chinese screen that retracts to reveal the projector,” Dunham says. “It fit to within an inch and set the look of the room, which we treillaged and then layered for a California take on English garden rooms.”

Philip Nimmo West Hollywood bedroom

“The paint color set the tone for the design, and it is the perfect complement to the vintage cowhide and chrome chair and ottoman,” designer Philip Nimmo says of his West Hollywood bedroom. “The warm, rich brown shade of the walls is strong and masculine, yet sophisticated and complements metals well.” The floor lamp is by Rose Tarlow, and Nimmo designed the Ed Ruscha–inspired “FIRE” fireplace screen.

“The architectural detail of the home shines through in the dining room wainscoting, which I painted white so that the detail would stand out,” Nimmo says. “I left the walls chalky — instead of polishing them — to absorb the light as much as possible. The charcoal shade above the wainscoting creates an ideal backdrop for Blue Intensity, 1999, by Laurie Zagon.” A teardrop crystal and bronze chandelier hangs over the 1940s French dining table and Italian Art Deco chairs.

Reath Design Hollywood Hills living room

“The chairs are by Casa Midy, and we liked that they have pretty backs since you see them from the entry,” says Reath Design founder Frances Merrill of this Hollywood Hills craftsman home. “But everyone’s favorite piece is the mustard yellow daybed that we designed for the space.
