Hollywood at Home
British transplant Peter Dunham is the go-to expert for celebrities who gravitate toward his clubby English spin on Old Hollywood style. At his West Hollywood showroom, one large space is set up like a boudoir: for winter, it was dressed in Carolina Irving Textiles’ blue-and-white stripes and fl orals; the same space is now redecorated in eye-catching harem prints by pattern fanatic (and fellow British expat) Martyn Lawrence-Bullard. There’s also an extensive selection of by-the-yard fabrics, including Dunham’s fresh takes on Indian, Turkish, and Persian imagery.
Favorite Finds: The store’s best-selling How to Marry a Millionaire side chair ($1,650) is a reproduction of the oak-and-rush-seated classic seen in the 1950’s film of the same name. Don’t miss the collection of vintage books, including a first edition of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s 1970’s advice manual, How to Catch a Man, How to Keep a Man, How to Get Rid of a Man ($80).
