    Default The Grossman house in Beverly Hills

    Greta Magnusson Grossman built this 1948 house in Beverly Hills as a quietly dramatic showcase of her skills as an architect and designer of interiors, furniture and lighting.
    Though she worked in the shadows of midcentury contemporaries such as Rudolph Schindler and Richard Neutra, Grossman maintains a following 10 years after her death — including designer Darryl Wilson, pictured, who bought the home three years ago and recently finished remodeling and expanding it with architect Tony Unruh. The goal: to reconcile the house’s past with its future, modernizing it in a way that Grossman might have done herself.

    I love the exterior, the staircase and the deck, but this is too "woody" even for me.

    If this house was built in 1948 as stated, she was way ahead of her time. It's stunning architecture.

    not necessarily. i'd say it was right within the modern style of the time. it just wasn't very mainstream. look at bauhaus and some of the stuff le corbusier was building in the 30s, or charlotte perriand's furniture at the same time.

    the house itself is fucking amazing. want!

    the décor is very masculine. if i were to move in i'd have to change some of the armchairs but for the most part i like it.
    i adore the dining room. that painting is beautiful.

    I love dark wood as much as anyone here, but I hate this. Nothing about it attracts me.

    I like the view and I like the tub. Agree about those kitchen cabinets. someone should be shot over that....

    I don't care for the wood paneling with the stone floors. And I hate the kitchen, too.

    I really like it. That paneling looks like redwood. In person, it probably has a beautiful natural luster.

    I like the fact that the kitchen has been redone in a way that probably isn't too far from the original.

    I love the stairway. Love the windows.

    The specifics of the decor aren't all to my taste.

    The bedroom needs some color but otherwise the place is stellar minus the burgundy couch and shag rug.
