After living in a private Hollywood Hills property for several years without doing much to make the space his own, a director thought that it was time to turn a lens on this particular — albeit personal —set.
"He wanted it to tell a story of who he is as a creative person," designer Shirry Dolgan said. "How he has traveled the world, [his] appreciation for art, and that he has a love for photography."
Dolgan's firm, ASD Interiors, came on board to bring this idea to life with a subdued masculine palette, which fit the director's request for the home to "be something cool and not too stiff." But the team was also sure to keep two other factors in mind: the site's perch above the city and a supporting cast of kids.
"It has a bit of a midcentury modern vibe but nothing that is too specific to that time period," Dolgan said. "It's also an amazing space for entertaining and has a spectacular view of Los Angeles."
Now the property has a confident personality of sleek pieces, bold colors, and intriguing details that are enhanced by the owner's belongings. It's just the sort of ending any director would hope to achieve.
