Nina Campbell at Greystone Mansion


Maison de Luxe, the Luxe Magazine-sponsored showhouse at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, is underway, and, as in years past, the list of participating designers is impressive.  One of those designers is the affable Nina Campbell, who was given Mr. Doheny's suite to decorate.  It was the Doheny family that built Greystone in the late 1920s, when family patriarch, Edward Doheny, Sr., granted his son the acreage on which to build the estate. 

In the current incarnation of Mr. Doheny's suite, Campbell has swathed the room in elegant shades of soft grey and sage green. Fabrics include those from Campbell's collection for Osborne & Little, while upholstered furniture is from O Henry House.  Lamps from Christopher Spitzmiller, furniture from Oomph, and potted tole flowers from Tommy Mitchell make appearances, as do pieces from Hollyhock, Therian, Dragonette, and Kristen Buckingham, to name but a few.  But the crowning jewel of the room just might be the oil portrait of Edward Doheny, Sr., which the Doheny family generously loaned to Campbell for use during this year's showhouse.

Maison de Luxe will remain open through November 22.  For more information, please visit the showhouse website.

  1. So elegant and befitting the history and architecture of Greystone, no shock treatments screaming in the room LOOK AT ME, sublime touches of modernism are woven discreetly by a designer with much Style and Panache.

    I disagree. It looks more like a showroom that sells reproductions. Not my cup of tea.
