L.A. Set and Interior Designer Mae Brunken's Hollywood Hills Home

Mae Brunken is a fabulous L.A. based set and interior
designer. Her mediterranean style home in the Hollywood
Hills has an extremely gorgeous courtyard as you can see

Here is the facade to her home.

The front door opens up onto a very
impressive atrium with high ceilings.

Mae did something unique with the
ceiling of the atrium by covering it
with a pattern.

The house has been around for a long time and has history.

This is the exact same foyer which
a movie was filmed in 1954.

Here we segue into a spacious dining room.

The luxurious dining are has a
beautiful rug with a golden ceiling.

Here's another angle to the living room.

What a cozy living area. Love the pink and purple accents.

A photo of the entire living room during the day.

And a close up of shelf above her fireplace.
The color scheme on the shelf with the
gold camel is perfect.

The guest bedroom definitely has an old vintage feel to it.

The master bedroom is luxurious with feminine touches
that you can see in the rug and pretty pink lucite bench.

I'd say she put a beautiful array of pillows together
on her window bench in her master bedroom.

Her period bathroom has the original yellow
and black tiles that are obviously well preserved.

Here's Mae Brunken relaxing in her daybed in the
courtyard. I wouldn't mind having a Moroccan
themed courtyard!

So what do you think? There's more to come later
in the week of her portfolio. I really love her use
of color and vintage luxe.

This is so interesting to look at. I was really poring over that foyer, it is so striking. I love Mae's ceiling treatments. However, does the wall of the staircase in the film still look different from Mae's foyer wall leading down to the front door? It appears as if there is an extra jog in the wall or bump-out in the old photo. And the front door looks similar, but not exactly the same. Look at the space from the bottom step, and the shape of the bottom step. And also, the wrought iron railing is similar, but again, not the same. So, major reno, or not same foyer?? What do YOU think?

Anonymous - I do think it's the same home but you're right that reno was definitely done. Good eye.

This home reminds me of some luxurious resort. If I lived here, I'd have a hard time getting work done because I'd be in vacation mode.
