Philanthropist and board member of the fashion label J. Mendel Rochelle Gores Fredston takes Harper’s Bazaar on a tour of her newly renovated Beverly Hills home. Decorated by Joan Behnke, the space mixes a variety of materials and textures with a sophisticated palette of neutrals for a look that is effortlessly elegant.
Throughout the home, travertine clad walls add a touch of rough luxe to the space. Here metal and glass light fixtures add contrast and create a look that is breathtakingly unique.
In the living room, a palette of grey, navy and cream creates a calming feel. Pops of yellow enliven the space while patterned curtains and a bookcase adds visual interest. Dark stained tiles bring presence to the fireplace.
Travertine soars above a grand dining table that was designed by Behnke. Indoor plants inject the space with a refreshing feel while hints of gold adds a touch of modern glamour to the space.
Curated artwork hangs in an especially designed alcove in a second living room bringing personality to the scheme. Pops of red lend warmth to the space.
In the kitchen, a cool marbled backsplash and island contrasts with dark wood cabinetry. The contemporary design allows the materials to take centerstage within the space.
At the end of this passageway, a geometric inspired console table anchors the space. Dashes of zingy colours adds a dramatic touch and draws your eye to the artwork.
In the patio, again we see a play with materials. Sleek wood furniture in contemporary lines infuses the space with a cosy and welcoming feel. Travertine tiles make an appearance here as well, blending the exterior and interior for a balanced seamless look.
