Celebrity Homes Must-see Lionel Richie’s Italian Style Mansion – “If I can’t find a lyric, I walk to the end of the garden and say, ‘OK, God, they’re expecting me to be famous; I have things being delivered for the house tomorrow; I need a second verse,’” Richie says. At the rear of the 17,000-square-foot house are a series of limestone terraces, a swimming pool and a stone poolhouse. The lush grounds feature cypress and magnolia trees and ‘Iceberg’ roses.
“The biggest compliment you can give me,” singer-songwriter says of his Beverly Hills home, “is to walk into any of these rooms and say, ‘I can stay here for a while.’” “We tried to respect the architecture and provide an environment to suit an accomplished celebrity,” Schifando says of the decor. Elsewhere in the living room, an 18th-century embroidered wall hanging serves as an elegant backdrop to the custom amboyna piano. The textured-silk-upholstered furniture adds lushness. Richie’s collection of Charles X opaline boxes adorns a low table.
The master bath was designed by Richie’s former wife Diane Richie and designer Karen Carsello. With its large size, oak floor, original molding and limestone fireplace, the space has the feel of a living room. The mahogany-finished tub case enhances the ambience.
