A lot of garish interior design in that home.

Conne, where do you rank the SoCal2NYC estate in your list of favorite homes?

Exactly some of the rooms look like they were decorated by Master P. With their money you'd imagine they'd hire someone with better taste.

Regarding houses that don't exist anymore, one of the most interesting looking was the Mark Hopkins Mansion, which stood on the site of the current Mark Hopkins Hotel. Being on the top of Nob Hill, it would have looked over downtown San Francisco. Although the house looks quite substantial, it was made of wood and burned to the ground during the 1906 earthquake.

Yes, thanks. I had just that day picked up a book Shulman's photos of Palm Springs houses as a gift for the wife, which partially explains my brain cramp.

Have you seen Moss's Petal House in west LA? Far less impressive (small house on a small lot fairly close to the 10 freeway), but still interesting. We toyed with the idea of buying it instead of our current house, but pedestrian practicality got the better of us. This is it: http://http://www.ericowenmoss.com/index.php?/projects/project/petal_house/

It's like something that a slightly tasteful dictator might have.
