Home of the Day: Palm-shrouded hideaway in Hollywood Hills West

A bit of vintage Hollywood lives on inside this star-studded residence in Hollywood Hills West, which mixes contemporary style with tributes to classic cinema. Black-and-white marble and polished steel beams lend a streamlined vibe to the interiors, evoking the midcentury, in keeping with a decorating scheme of old movie star photos and a “Hollywoodland” accent wall. Outside, tall banana palms envelop the hillside grounds.
