The Other Juicy House

I have a lot of readers who live outside the US so I thought they and others who don't read Bazaar might be interested to see the other Juicy abode. This one is a 1939 Georgian colonial in Beverly Hills that had more than a little help from interior designer Peter Dunham to pull it all together in a European style he calls "Duchess of Windsor meets Iron Maiden." Pamela Skaist-Levy are one lucky family. Both of the homes are different but are each are spectacular in their own way!

I especially love the green Jansen sofa mixed with the modern painting by Julian Schnabel! Tres chic!

The sitting room has pops of blue that echo the beach house collections of glass but in this case they sit next to an 18th-century Chinese lacquered screen.
The breakfast room is light and airy. I always think that pink flowers in blue and white Asian vases is a lovely contrast and very Anna of Absolutely Beautiful Things!

I'm obsessed with antique mirrors lately and this is an exceptionally beautiful one! The urns aren't too shabby either!

This is a much more expensive and ornate version of what I was going for at the Bachelor Pad!

The vintage mirrored desk is to die for looks fabulous with the French chairs and art and design books!

In this view from another magazine, they left the computer on the desk!

The bed came from Sotheby's in London but was rebuilt to accommodate a king size mattress.

I think every woman should have a vanity! It makes getting ready for a party an experience to be an enjoyed!

And of course the closet/dressing room wasn't forgotten. I love the antique settee and of course the Hermes bag. I guess those velor sweatsuits really did make a lot of money!

The Vintage Chair - I love all the seating! But then again, I'm a sucker for a French chair!

Habitually Chic said...

Luphia - It's grand but still looks young and fun!

Anonymous - I looked but only saw one spread of the country house in Avon that she shares with her husband John Taylor of Duran Duran and it was mostly of the exterior. Here is the link, http://www.juicycouture.com/press?id=841b124e-d3ad-4371-bb8a-33a6e0344fb5&f=G%20and%20P%20Press.

One of my dearest friends who has a gift for quick wit, when I asked and what is the dress...for the evening -and she said, "Oh, it is the kind of place where one wears juicy velour suits and diamonds, you know, one must be comfortable for a six course feast!" Jog suits and diamonds" Ha!
Taste is after all, all about comfort and that house is divine and her hair is of course wonderful.

What a great post...I adore getting a peek into the homes of successful business people. Love the antique mirror too...I share your obsession!

Love the size and the mirrored finish on the desk. Hmm, maybe I didn't look hard enough into the closet. Don't think I saw a single track suit.

What a lovely post! I love that second picture on the green sofa!

I recently bought a lot of antique gilded frames and mirrors. I love old mirrors too! I want to put them all in my bathroom, which has a really high ceiling and a brick wall. Has anyone ever antiqued a mirror?
I looked online and saw some products that do it, but I'm hesitant to try it.
any suggestions?
I like the very distressed, opaque look.
Great post!

Sabina said...

Soooo much to look at!!! Great selections!!

Habitually Chic said...

Stacy - Green wouldn't usually be my first choice for a sofa color but it looks great!

Habitually Chic said...

Ivy Lane - I know! They are so different but beautiful!

Habitually Chic said...

Hello Gorgeous - I found more photos under Press on the Juicy website!

Habitually Chic said...

PVE - I've never heard of track suits and diamons. But maybe it's the same as jeans and diamonds in NYC!

Habitually Chic said...

Things that Inspire - I'm going to have to stalk the dlea markets for antique mirrors now!

Habitually Chic said...

Easy and Elegant - come to think of it, I don't think I've ever seen them in one! Chanel and Hermes but no velour! Interesting!

Habitually Chic said...

Absolutely Unique - green is the new favorite!

Habitually Chic said...

Nancy - maybe you should try it on a cheap piece of mirror first. The solution "eats" away at the mirror and I think you'll need to figure out how long to leave it on in order to achieve your desired look. Sometimes, it will continue to "age" even after the solution is removed too. Or you could buy antique mirrors. Good luck!

Sabina - I thought I should make up for my small posts last week ;-)

I pretty much hate this woman for stealing my man. I mean, I decided I was supposed to marry John Taylor in 1984, and she stole him from me. And now I find she lives like this :)

He's still hot.

Dunham has quite a talent! Love the phtoos, and especially the mirrored dressing table. My mother had one just like it when I was growing up. It slipped away at some point over the years, sadly.
Nice post!
