The Lisa Henson House — My Favorite Design Style
I’m frequently asked about my favorite architectural/design style. Daughter of California that I am, you’ll see how the Lisa Henson house embodies all I hold dear.
As much as I love clean modern lines and appreciate the virtues of the traditional 1930’s home where I currently live, it’s the classic California Spanish Revival style that captures my heart and imagination. Add splashes of brilliant color, and I’m in heaven.
The Lisa Henson house in Beverly Hills embodies all of that. It makes sense that such a creative film and TV producer such as Henson would live in a creative and colorful home.
Now that it’s for sale, there’s a chance for a new owner to catch the rainbow connection. Henson, president and CEO of the Jim Henson Co. (home of the Muppets) has put her classic Spanish Revival estate in Beverly Hills, CA,on the market for $17 million.
Described as “magical” in the listing, the property built in 1927 has retained many gorgeous original features. You’ll find thick plaster walls, a tiled roof, arched openings, wrought-iron balconies and window bars, stenciled and beamed ceilings, colorful Mediterranean tiles, and heavy carved-wood doors.
