Built for interior designer Ron Collier, this modern perch in the Hollywood Hills’ Bird Streets was later owned by celebrated art patron Merry Norris, who commissioned Barbara Barry to style the interior during her ownership.
Among Berry’s first design projects in Los Angeles, the residence is museum-like with its gallery walls, high ceilings and sun-drenched rooms. Pocketing doors in the living and dining rooms open directly to a pool deck. Westward views extending as far as the ocean can be observed from the second story, particularly in the master suite and its sitting room.
