SEE THIS HOUSE: A GLEEFUL SPANISH STYLE ABODE FOR HOLLYWOOD PRODUCER RYAN MURPHY!

open dining room with dark wood floors, reclaimed dark wood table and matching chairs, white cabinets, a refrigerator and two large pendant lights

Hollywood television producer Ryan Murphy opened up his 1927 Spanish Colonial Revival home in the latest issue of entertainment industry trade magazine The Hollywood Reporter.  Ryan is best known in Hollywood for producing hit television shows...he the executive producer of game changers like Glee, American Horror StoryNip Tuck and New Normal.

Murphy apparently bought the home for about $10 million dollars from actress Diane Keaton.  It is located in the flats of Beverly Hills.

According to the article, Murphy worked with designer Cliff Fong to create interior spaces that were relevant to the architecture and overall vibe of the home.  Reportedly, Murphy is a collector of 1920s and 1930s Monterey Spanish furniture and Bauer pottery among other things.

I like this house...it definitely has a vintage mood and feel to it...I also love the use of dark wood floors (uh oh...this may make me change my mind on my floors again) and the subtly masculine furniture throughout.  I would call this vibe understated elegance with a vintage Spanish twist.  Make sense?

Anyhoooo....take a look.

What do you think of this Beverly Hills home? I like it. I would move in without question...wonder if they have room?

Happy Thursday!

  3. I love this home but feel the decor is a bit to masculine and one dimensional,especially the bedroom,it needs a little more mix!

  4. Lovely but too much black and white for me it doesn't feel warm enough. The fact that its in California however gives it extra points.
