If colorful interiors and intricate patterns are your things, we’ve got a treat for you. A luxury home recently hit the market in Westwood, Los Angeles, and it comes with a collection of striking custom wallpapers — that rightfully earned it the moniker “the Wallpaper House”.
Owned by Kristin Jones, an Executive Vice President with AMC Networks, the home’s colorful walls boast art by Missoni, Ananbo and Neisha Crosland, to name just a few, bringing contemporary elegance and detail to the ultra-private 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom property.
Now on the market with a $3,695,000 price tag (Rochelle Maize of Nourmand & Associates holds the listing), the unique home is looking for a discerning buyer with a keen eye for art and romantic interiors.
Clocking in at 3,200 square feet, the house comes with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and one-half bath, a pool, and a two-car garage. It sits on a generous lot with a large landscaped yard that makes room for plenty of outdoor entertaining.
But what makes the Wallpaper House stand out most are its unique interiors, each room sporting its own striking, colorful design. The memorable wallpapers have been custom designed by known artists and manufacturers, with names like Donald Roberston (aka “Drawbertson”, the fashion world’s favorite artist
) or Neisha Crosland (a famous London-based textile designer) behind the designs.
The rest of the designer wallpapers have been created by Ananbo in Paris (the sunroom), Missoni (lower bedroom), Farrow and Ball (front hallway wallpaper), Grasscloth (front study), Fornasetti? (master bedroom), Schumacher (lower bathroom, kids nursery), and Nicky Rising Ltd (master bathroom).
The Wallpaper House has a gracious formal dining room with French Doors, a gourmet eat-in kitchen, hardwood floors, crown moldings, and wood-burning fireplaces. Its romantic owner’s suite showcases an updated sumptuous steam shower and Jet bathtub with Carrara marble countertops — complemented by the unique décor.
In fact, all of the bathrooms
and bedroom suites come with the house’s signature décor element: bold wallpapers with striking designs and unique patterns, each more distinctive than the other.
Outside, the lushly landscaped yard is perfect for alfresco dining while lounging by the pool and outdoor fireplace.
In terms of location, the property sits right next to the Los Angeles Country Club, which places it just minutes away from UCLA, Westwood Village, the celebrity-packed Beverly Hills,
and the newly renovated Century City Mall.
