The 56,000 square foot Holmby Hills home, known as The Manor, has 100 rooms and Petra enlisted designer Gavin Brodin to transform the mansion, showing off the 5,000 sq. ft. foyer with a breathtaking marble striped black and white floor and sweeping double staircase to W magazine.
“I know that the house is huge, and yes, it really is quite overwhelming,” she told the magazine. “But with the other houses we looked at that were a similar size to this, you felt like you were in a museum.
“They didn’t feel homey. I think because there was a family here previously, it was warmer and cozier.”
Petra, 23, says she went for simple lines in her new home. “I’ve got quite masculine taste. I don’t like a lot of pattern... everything is very dark and kind of sexy, with, like, a boudoir feel to it. You’re not scared if you stain something.”
