Entry Hall

The spacious two-story foyer provides additional room for entertaining.

Living Room

Designer Natasha Baradaran included sculptural pieces in the furniture mix. She designed the fireplace screen and added other textural elements to the scene, like a table from Donghia with Moroccan influences. An Eric Orr painting leans on the mantel.

A side table with a twig base from Holly Hunt adds to the elegant textural variety in the living room.

Against a wall covered in grass cloth, a moonstone-embellished lamp from Fuse Lighting rests on a rosewood console table.

Designer

Natasha Baradaran knows no limits. Born and raised in Los Angeles, her design portfolio spans the globe from projects in Beverly Hills to Dubai to Milan. She’s transformed not only residential interiors but commercial spaces that include restaurants, spas, and luxury hotels. Currently, Baradaran is focusing on her furniture collection, to be launched this fall. Inspired by the facets of gems (her mother is a high-end jewelry designer), Baradaran has created a capsule line
of 10 pieces built from geometric shapes. “I’ve combined my two loves—jewelry and fashion,” says the designer.

Dining Room

Color pops from a Joan Miró painting that contrasts with the iconic painted-silk pendant light from Fortuny.

Kitchen

Pattern plays a key role on the natural surfaces in the white kitchen. Mosaic tile from Ann Sacks and Calacatta marble on the island create depth and avoid any hints of a cold, sterile environment.

Breakfast Area

The weighty breakfast table mixes an oak top with a nickel base and is tempered by see-through chairs covered in gray raffia.

Family Room

Built on a cream, gray, and red scheme, the space is accessorized in facets. The fabrics’ subtle sheen adds a touch of glamour to the casual room.

Family Room Details

The shapes of vases by Robert Kuo on the coffee and game tables are echoed in an open light fixture designed by Baradaran.

Back Exterior

Behind the Susskind house are the pool and areas for lounging and dining. The home was designed by Los Angeles-based architect Richard Landry.

Homeowners

Janis and Jeffrey Susskind outside their Brentwood home.

Master Bedroom

The contemporary angles in the master bedroom are softened by a spa-like palette and the loose-patterned De Gournay wallpaper behind the bed. At the foot of the bed, a bench by Holly Hunt is both functional and decorative.
