Last Friday, December 2nd, Luxe Interiors + Design magazine put on its "Maison de Luxe" event at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Twenty-four lauded designers decorated the historic mansion's rooms to their hearts' desires.
We decided it would be a great opportunity to head down to L.A. for the day and check it out. While there, we received a wonderful tour of the mansion's expertly-decorated interiors and attended a lecture featuring four of the designers on the panel.
The over 46,000-square-foot mansion (for comparison, our biggest Montecito estate clocks in at 30,000 sq. ft.) was built in 1928 for the Doheny family on over 18 acres. The property is now a landmark, restored by nonprofit Friends of Greystone with tours and events run by the city's Parks & Recreation Department. Obviously, this estate is truly magnificent, especially what with the internationally-renowned designers having gotten their hands on it.
Here are some photos of our wonderful day there.
