Architectural Digest: July Issue

The latest issue of AD is out and it's a bit of a treat for Elizabeth Taylor fans (it was only a matter of time) as they feature her Bel Air estate in California.

A sitting room with bronze horses sculptured by her daughter and Andy Warhol Liz silkscreen.

The Trophy Room.  That cabinet is chockers I might add.  I can see at least two academy awards.

The climbing rose trained over the arbour is so beautiful.

Her dressing table.


The matching wall covering is embroidered silk.  The sketches are costume designs from one of her films.

All images from AD

See and read more here as wells as an interesting slide show featuring the most stylish interiors of some of her movies here.



  1. So sentimentally beautiful, have this on my desk right now!

  2. It actually looks lived-in & comfortable but every bit as glamorous as you'd expect for Liz. Love it.

  3. How amazing it looks. I can really SEE here in there - so much tangible personality. She really left an imprint.

    Thanks for sharing my friend.

  4. Interesting! That arbor is breath taking...and I would love such a dressing room. It really does look lived in and a lot like her. Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend.

  5. This is a real treat to see. She lived in one of the best locations in Bel Air. Rumor has it that the house might be up for sale, but it looks like her son Michael Wilding, Jr. may be the owner now. I hope he keeps it.

  6. I'm new to building websites and I was wondering if having your website title related to your content really that crucial? I see your title,
    "Blogger: First House on the Right " does appear to be spot on with what your website is
    about but, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and
    based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
    Any kind of assistance would be greatly valued.
