Talk about talent. Chart busting, American singer/songwriter, Sheryl Crow, has more talent than you may know – In addition to winning 9 Grammy awards, she also gets an “A” for interior design.
The March, 2011 issue of Architectural Digest has a great spread on Crow and her LA digs. She apparently fired her decorator and unleashed a natural talent she possessed all along!
The property perched high above the hustle of the city in the Hollywood Hills area of LA, was acquired over time. According to AD, she purchased a 1920’s Spanish Colonial there in the mid 1990’s. Since that time, she’s picked up several adjacent dwellings – a 1900’s Craftsman bungalow and a 19th century cottage – to make an 11 acre compound. The estate offers picturesque views of LA while providing the star with serenity, space and magic.
We’ve known all along Crow has style – But, you need to check out her digs! Unpretentious, comfortable and diverse, she’s clearly got an eye for design.
The article takes us on a tour of her home and uncovers a Crow most of us were unaware of – she blends Deco with contemporary and antiques with folk art to create a wonderfully inviting home.
According to the article, many of her finds came from the Venice-based Obsolete, an eclectic shop offering a multitude of accessories from mannequins to vintage lighting. If their web site has anything to do with it, the shop has got to me amazing.
Crow may be a “100 miles from
” but one thing is certain – she has class and inviting me into her home has given me a new perspective. She’s grounded with an appreciation for the past and a view towards the future. Memphis
We all can learn a thing or two from Sheryl Crow when it comes to interior design. Pick up the March issue and see for your self.
