Veranda Hosts Party At Greystone Mansion

Leave it to Veranda Magazine to throw a chic event at a nice Beverly Hills house. Greystone Mansion is a 45,000 sf, 55-room, Tudor-style house that sits on 16 acres and was the site of Veranda's first California Show House.

The Show House opening night was hosted by absolutely-fabulous designer Nathan Turner chaired along with Mary McDonald and Ann Getty, working with the (obviously successful) party theme "Chinoiserie au Jardin."

Partnering with the City of Beverly Hills and Friends Of Greystone, the hugely successful Greystone Mansion Show House was the result of some 24 top interior and landscape designers selected by Veranda whom restored and transformed Greystone.
The Los Angeles Times covered the event with photographer Gary Friedman (photos here of the reception room, the morning room, the grand salon ballroom and the master sitting room are from the Times piece). For more photos including a slideshow and coverage from that article, click here.

Nathan Turner is listed in our Directory of Designers listed geographically, his shop is located in Los Angeles.
Greystone House is now a public park within Los Angeles and its house and grounds has often been used in film and television. The house's descending staircase is one of the most famous sets in Hollywood.
