7. The Formal Living Room
With just one look at the pristine white armless sofas and club chairs, it is immediately obvious that this room is meant for the adults. The room centers on the pink lacquered coffee table and the colorful digital print by Jeremy Blake that hangs over the mantle crafted from Corian. Vintage wall sconces sit on each end of the mantle, while a David LaChapelle photo of Elton’s longtime friend, Elizabeth Taylor hangs on the far wall. Of course, you can’t miss the zebra print rug that gives the hardwood floor a bit of warmth.
8. The Informal Family Room
The family room is conveniently located on the other side of the living room. The hardwood floor and white walls continue in here. The curved shamrock green leather couch is topped with black and gray fabric pillows, giving the boys something to prop their head on and tying it together with the black lacquered shelves hanging on the back wall. The round coffee table was custom made by Lawson-Femming and appears to have a chrome finish. The vase sitting in the middle of the table is by Barovier & Toso, an Italian family owned business that specializes in Venetian glass. Unless the family just relies on the natural light that shines in through the windows, there has to be some type of overhead lighting in the room, but there are no visible fixtures. This is very different from many celebrity homes, where elaborate chandeliers are often found hanging.
