Celebrity style – Leonardo DiCaprio Palm Springs

You may never appear in a Leonardo DiCaprio period film, but for a price, you can rent his Mad Men-era compound in Palm Springs for $4,500 a night, as first reported by Curbed L.A. DiCaprio has been kicking back on the 1.3-acre estate since buying it last year for $5.2 million, but wants to lease it out by the night while filming The Revenant, his first big job since 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street.
 The 7,022-square-foot main house was built in 1965 for Dinah Shore and is more expansive than most midcentury modern homes, with 6 bedrooms, 7.5 baths and multiple fireplaces. The grounds feature a guest house, pool and tennis court.

 

This home is the perfect example of California chic! It is bright, streamlined and surrounded by stunning scenery.  The interior is so fresh and has that modern movie-star feel. Those black window frames really anchor the space so that it doesn’t look washed out.

 

 

There are also lots of great pop of texture, colour and pattern! The mix of glass, fur (likely faux), the pattern wallpaper in the accent nook in the bedroom and that bold hot pink add so much visual interest and personality to this home.

Much of architect Donald Wexler’s original work has been restored. Mid-century modern restorations are all the rage in Palm Springs, where one developer is even reviving Joseph Eichler homes using archived plans from the iconic builder, who died in 1974.

 

We love the clean lines and simplicity of this kitchen.  White is a classic but this kitchen has a modern spin.  The over sized and horizontal hardware adds a unique touch!

What an incredible home to live life like a celebrity, even if it is just for a short stay …
