    Default Diane Keaton's Beverly Hills home

    Actress, director and producer Diane Keaton stands at the front entrance of her Beverly Hills residence, an early-1920s structure by architect Ralph Flewelling.





    A previous renovation created a double-height entrance hall. Keaton suggested turning the unwieldy space into a library. “It’s still large but more in scale with the rest of the house,” notes Shadley.




    Keaton is an enthusiastic, knowledgeable collector of California art and design. A 1931 Maynard Dixon oil, Late Afternoon, hangs above the living room’s fireplace; William Ritschel’s 1912 Desert Wanderers is at rear. The pots are Hillside, from the teens and ’20s; the daybeds are Monterey pieces. Of the latter, Shadley observes, “Diane has the best collection anywhere.”







    Vintage pottery fills shelves in the family room, part of the kitchen.









    Monterey furniture served as her inspiration for the table she designed for the office—once an open-air loggia. “We added doors to the arches and turned it into a year-round room,” says Shadley. The painting across the courtyard is a Mell oil.

    1920's built..with all that heavy woodwork and masonry..in Earthquake country?-hope it has been 'retrofitted' or else that would be a tomb in a major quake. Other than than I like it, but it is a bit too austere and needs to move a bit farther away from the 'Spanish Inquisitionish' monotony and severity.
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    It's well staged, but yeah. I keep wondering where they keep the rack and iron maiden.

    Not my taste at all, but I don't hate it. It seems to suit Diane's personality.

    Love having a separate library, but the lettering up the walls and the uncomfortable looking bench aren't doing any favors.

    The kitchen island isn't the best place for crusty pots of cactus, either.

    It's not my style, but it's very lovely. It suits her, yes.

    I like it, but I'd add some color on the walls.
