The Dream Come True: Great Houses of Los Angeles
Text by Brendan Gill. Photographs by Derry Moore.
OK OK OK, we've found THE best book on dream homes of LA. Move over Daydream Houses of Los Angeles! Full of the lavish, jaw-dropping homes of the ultra rich (circa 1970's), this incredible book gives you the tour "from secret canyon to high hill, from fabulous exterior to stunning interior", from Zsa Zsa Gabor's throne-like bed to film producer Allan Carr's Egyptian-themed disco/rumpus room. It also features work by the Wrights (father and son), Neutra, Eames, Frank Gehry, Philip Johnson, Mies Van Der Rohe and others. Just like the title, this book is a dream come true.
