Cheryl Crow’s unique Spanish colonial hacienda is a feast for the artistic eye…and heart. She purchased the 11 acre estate in 1997, when she was fresh off the success of her first two albums. The estate sits nestled in the Hollywood hills, a landscape with three homes, and a few tree houses to boot. She now shares her home with her two young sons, Wyatt and Levy.
When she first moved in, she lived with almost no furniture for a year, giving Crow “a feel for airy spaces, poetic light.” Slowly, “she began to fill the rooms herself, piece by piece, taking a highly personal, richly layered approach to interior design.”
“This is an incredibly magical place. It has the best of everything California has to offer, but there’s also something deeper. The land has a fascinating energy.” – Cheryl Crow
“I wanted to get away from using heavy drapes and keep the place light,” says Crow.
“I’m a collector of oddities, stuff that is somehow off-center or off-kilter, things that have their own inner lives and implore you to use your imagination.” – Cheryl Crow
Ray Azoulay, owner of Obsolete, a Venice, California boutique, says of Crow: “There’s a fearlessness and a bit of irreverence in her style, but that’s what makes it so refreshing.”
“There are a lot of people who think of me as very straight, very middle America and conventional, so I imagine this place will come as a surprise. I’d hope it would make them think, I need to get to know this person better.”
