Today's design focus is on Frank Gehry's house built for artist Ronald Davis back in 1971. And brought to light by the dreamy Patrick Dempsey back in 2014 when he was featured by Architectural Digest giving a home tour of the property.
See link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2. Only a short stay as he then Sold the property to Sid Bass for $15 million a year later.
Now brace yourselves folks please sit down....
This AMAZING HOUSE was lost in the Malibu Woolsey Fire Nov 2018.
Gather yourselves and let's not dwell on that devastating news but drool on the magnificent interiors whilst owned by Patrick Dempsey images by Architectural Digest.
The famous light filled entrance we all have saved a million times for home inspiration and led me to the discovery of the loss of this masterful home.
Features: Pivoting glass panel as front door along with A vintage Jacques Adnet daybed from Blackman Cruz.
Lounge area with that stunning timber feature helps soften the noise of the loft space whilst looking stunning and giving texture and interest to the open spaces.
Custom-made sofas upholstered in a Great Plains fabric stand before the living room fireplace, which is surmounted by a Waldo’s Designs mirror; the painting at left is by Thomas Helbig, the large round table is by Dos Gallos Furniture, and the Alma Allen low stool (used as an end table) is from Heath Ceramics. Jillian Dempsey made the sculpture displayed on the cocktail table
KITCHENThe kitchen features a concrete sink and countertops.
Frank Gehry's favourite space in the home is the loft.
The sculpture studio’s custom-made Shrader Design sofa is clad in a Great Plains fabric and features decorative pillows by Brenda Antin; the cocktail tables are by Lucca Antiques, the leather daybed/bench is by Caste, the floor lamp is from Obsolete, and the Moroccan carpet is from Lawrence of La Brea
Fashion photographs by Melvin Sokolsky are displayed in a dining area outfitted with chairs from Lucca Antiques and a custom-made Teak Nichols Design table; in the background hangs a 1960s Raak light fixture from Obsolete
Oh my and the best trailer ever.
Shrader Design created the outdoor dining space, which is shaded by a metal-framed wicker canopy.
And the beautiful Dempsey Family.
Even though they had moved on prior to the fires they must feel the loss of this amazing home they once had the pleasure of living in and we must pay thanks to Architecture Digest for featuring them and the house prior to the fires.
