Villa De Mille Home Tour

After a stunning facelift by celebrity interior designer Xorin Balbes, Villa de Mille is most definitely ready for its close-up. The Spanish-style home is set on half an acre within a gated community overlooking the Hollywood Hills that was once Cecil B. DeMille's stomping grounds. It’s been lovingly restored and renovated with the feel of an authentic 1920’s home while adding in today’s modern design and amenities.

Montage Hotel Suite 100

As part of Beverly Hills’ 2014 Centennial celebration, Montage is one of the city’s five luxury hotels participating in the hospitality promotion created by the Beverly Hills Conference and Visitors Bureau.  Each property is redecorating one of its suites in the spirit of a designated decade in the city’s rich history, transporting guests back in time.


Award-winning interior and furniture designer, Nina Petronzio, has taken the lead on the Montage project, capturing the sultry sophistication and mystique that was epitomized in the 1940’s byFilm Noir jaded detectives, femme fatales and smoky jazz clubs.


Rich fabrics provided by Schumacher, the only 19th century decorative textile supplier still privately owned, feature authentic, classic and timeless looks which work cohesively with the bespoke furnishings in the space. Luxury Italian linen manufacturer Barbacci, known for creating the finest linens in the world, was enlisted to translate Petronzio’s custom braid embroidery design into the stitching showcased in both master suites.
