Diggy's Versace Accessories

As Seen on TV
Thanks to her popular fashion lines and starring roles on MTV's reality shows The Hills and Laguna Beach, Lauren Conrad is a recognizable name. Also recognizable is her Hollywood home, which was featured prominently on The Hills. In addition to the three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom main house, the property features a detached guesthouse, where Lauren's friend and costar Audrina Patridge lived for one season of the show.
"There's a lot of great character to the house," says Jana Charalambous of Hilton & Hyland. "You've got the coved ceilings, traditional tiles, molding and wrought iron. It's got a lot of great features from the '20s but with a new world, modern vibe." Gleaming hardwood floors and barreled ceilings complete the home's authentic 1920s look.
Outside, you'll find a lush, private escape that's been the scene of many a Hollywood party. "I think the backyard is a very peaceful oasis," Jana says. "It's beautifully done -- with the fountains and the pool -- and it just makes you want to relax all day."
Galina Sobolev’s Los Angeles Home
Galina Sobolev’s dress line, Single, has been worn by A-list celebrities like Eva Mendes, Katy Perry and Eva Longoria. Naturally, her Los Angeles home exudes style. “I love luxury for the home,” she says. “I used a lot of natural silks, and my drapes are mostly silk velvet, which I find is soft and very sexy. We have cashmere blankets and Hermes cashmere pillows everywhere.”
The Cedars: Solarium
Sue Wong worked with a team of European artisans to restore the Cedars, a grand estate built in 1921 for MGM director Maurice Tourneur. The spectacular semi-circular Solarium – rumored to have hosted Howard Hughes playing on its grand piano – is surrounded by a border of gilded Ionian columns interspersed with bas relief lions, some of the more than 140 lions found throughout the house. The dark wood and green velvet lounging chairs came from the fabled ocean liner SS Normandie.
The Cedars: Formal Dining Room
A wrought iron and frosted art deco doorway opens up to the formal dining room (decorated in the Spanish 1920s style) with an intricate gilded bas relief ceiling depicting French courtship scenes. Sue custom designed and commissioned the elaborate embroidered and beaded silk shantung drapery that frames the windows.
The Cedars: Moroccan Room
This exotic space is Sue Wong's favorite spot in the home. "The history that permeates these walls sings to me in a powerful and meditational way," she says. A jewel-encrusted carved antique archway completes the rich bohemian and arabesque mood of the room, which reputedly played host to Jimi Hendrix.
The Cedars: Grand Ballroom
The Grand Ballroom is anchored by a dramatic fireplace topped with gilded lions, said to have been installed as an homage to the iconic lion of MGM studios. The room also includes an enormous gilt bronze screen, flanked by 1920s Spanish torchères. The painting in the 1920s mural style by Jayme Odgers was commissioned by Sue Wong to represent the Three Goddesses (Aphrodite, Athena and Artemis).
Hawaii Retreat: Tropical Touches
"My home in Kipahulu serves as my spiritual retreat," Sue says. The property is surrounded by seven acres of gorgeous, manicured, landscaped tropical gardens, featuring a statuary, fruit orchards, kaleidoscopic flowers and banana forests.
Outfitted in Balinese furniture, the living room also boasts a spectacular tropical flower arrangement sourced from the estate’s own gardens.
