Last week marked the opening of Maison de Luxe, a show house at Greystone Mansion in Los Angeles sponsored by Luxe Interiors + Design, the City of Beverly Hills and Friends of Greystone. I was thrilled to be invited as a guest of Luxe, and really enjoyed the program they put together for us during our two day stay.
The two day trip culminated in the gala opening Thursday night, which I spent, despite my perilously high heels, running from room to room with my camera, snapping photos of every beautiful detail. The historic mansion featured designed spaces from 25 top interior designers from across the country, including Barclay Butera, a familiar face I always enjoy seeing when I’m in L.A.
Butera designed a family room on the second floor of the estate, complete with a fireplace, three walls of windows and beautiful architectural details. His design features four leather armchairs arranged in front of the fireplace for casual conversation, coffee or cocktails, a tufted sofa and a bench spanning the length of the windows. Multiple seating areas break up the space into intimate areas, giving the large room a cozy feel. Butera’s specialty is creating a comfortable environment by layering textiles, rich wood, carpet and pillows for a sophisticated, lived-in feel.
Check back this week for more from Maison de Luxe, and enjoy these beautiful photos, courtesy of Butera, from photographer Mark Lohman.
