With splashes of Art Deco feel and cool color, Whipple Russell Architects has designed a sleek, clean-lined bachelor pad on Harold Way in Hollywood Hills. Viewed from a downstairs entrance, it gives little hint as to the magnificence ahead…but very soon, this apartment’s #1 decorating feature is apparent. Wherever you look, sparkling city lights gleam through walls of glass. Central to the upstairs “public” areas is an all-white open fireplace around which are comfy, neutral-toned lounges. Next to this area, the dining table floats in the middle of bench seating — an ensemble that can be pushed together into a compact “cube” when not in use. This level also contains one spacious bathroom in gray and white, along with a streamlined kitchen of pale wood grain, stainless steel, and blue uplighting; steel columns provide “dividers” in the open space.

As you approach the stairway, purple light indicates a change in level and the shift to the owner’s private domain. Here you find the master suite — with its own wall of windows and master bathroom with dual sinks, sumptuous tub with its own flat-screen TV, and abundant storage space behind shining copper-toned tiles. Completing the lower level is a theater room with bright fuchsia seating, plus colorful modern art throughout. But by far the most distinctive feature on the lower level is the owner’s favorite art: his car, which sits in its own alcove. It’s the finishing touch of surprise and whimsy in a place that exudes “glam.” Even though its owner isn’t famous, Whipple Russell has created a breathtaking apartment here, in this Harold Way abode fine enough for any of the “beautiful people.”
