Watch closely as your ride twists and turns through the hills of Laurel Canyon, because among the gnarled trees you're about to discover a repository. Encased in flowering bougainvillea, Kirkwood Drive is a life-sized jewellery box filled to the brim with gilded ornaments and wonderful adornments. Whether you’re admiring the arabesque embellishments inside or dining al fresco amidst emerald leaves, you’ll know you've found one precious place.
Lady of the rings
Whether she’s working on the East Coast or West, playing to an audience or behind the scenes, your hostess is proud of her treasure trove – both the pieces she’s inherited, like the ivory-keyed piano, and the ones she’s collected on her own, like her recently renovated kitchen in pearl.
The royal jewels
The natural beauty of this home cannot be ignored, from its wooden planked floors to its exposed cathedral ceiling beams – but its personality is enhanced with cut, clarity and flair. From one bedroom’s ruby red walls to another’s tiara-style headboard to the beaded strands of a chandelier, this house is a study in understated bedazzlement. You’ll delight in golden lampshades, candlesticks with crystal pendants and a multitude of decorative mirrors to check your reflection at every turn. The jewel of this crown is en plein air, where an inviting hammock beckons you to set your diadem aside for a moment of slumber.
There is a charming set of stairs to climb in order to enter this home.
