Academy Award winning actress Geena Davis recently listed her longtime Pacific Palisades, CA house for sale, staged by Meridith Baer Home!

Hollywood Regency Celebrity Estate

Meridith Baer Home Staged the Former House of Judy Garland and Sammy Davis Jr.

The Hollywood Hills are rich with show business history.

It’s not uncommon to find homes in the area with multiple celebrity owners over time, dating back to Tinseltown’s classic days.

We recently staged one of these storied properties: a hillside house above the Sunset Strip designed and built in 1941 by architect-to-the-stars John Elgin Woolf.

The property was occupied in the mid-1940s by actress-singer Judy Garland, her husband, film and stage director Vincente Minnelli, and their daughter, Liza Minnelli. It was later sold to Rat Pack entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. and during his stay, musical acts such as the Band also lived and recorded there.

We styled the property with a midcentury transitional feel, evoking its history of creativity and cool.

We staged the listing for Alexandra Pfeifer, Berkshire Hathaway.

The house is a Los Angeles Times Hot Property this week:

Meridith Baer Home Staged Phil Maloof’s Las Vegas Penthouse

Former New Mexico state senator Phil Maloof is selling his lavish Las Vegas penthouse, staged by Meridith Baer Home!

The Maloof family built the Palms Casino Resort, and the residence in the neighboring Palms Place highrise was designed for Sin City style entertaining.

Spanning the building’s entire 59th floor, the condo features three bedrooms, including a master suite surrounded by glass walls; five bathrooms; a DJ booth; gym; and a massive rooftop deck with a spa, 30-foot movie screen, and panoramic views of the city.

Las Vegas Review-Journal interviewed MBH designer Carolyn Greco about her staging:

Almost all of the furnishings were selected to enhance the “rock ’n’ roll” vibe of the condo, which is listed with the Ivan Sher Group, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, said designer Carolyn Greco of Meridith Baer Home, who staged the unit for sale.

“My intention was to create a hip, sexy, modern, rock ’n’ roll space — my favorite look. My main goal was not to obstruct the amazing views of Vegas this penthouse has to offer.”
