Home Tour Inspirations

Do you enjoy home tours? My friend Jane Meade and I went to a special event to share holiday decorating ideas at a fancy Beverly Hills estate.

The Greystone Mansion, also known as the Doheny Mansion was built for Edward “Ned” Doheny, Jr., and his family, including five children. A gift from his oil tycoon father, the home cost over $3 million to build in 1928. Doheny Sr. was a major character in the Teapot Dome scandal. (Before the Watergate scandal, Teapot Dome was regarded as the “greatest and most sensational scandal in the history of American politics”.)
