Who would pass up a chance to take a peek inside the home of pop royalty? Not us, that’s for sure. This week we’re exploring the LA home of Sir Elton John and his partner, film producer David Furnish.

First purchased in 2017, the couple sought a family-friendly West Coast home where they could raise their children, Zachary and Elijah, in comfort.

It was Furnish who found the bungalow, first built in 1966 in the famous Trousdale Estates, known throughout Los Angeles for its midcentury style and designs.

Designed by the famed interiors guru, Martin Lawerence Bullard, the home encapsulates a mix of family-friendly features, stain-proof fabrics, soft, rounded edges and combines them with the couples love of art and bright, open spaces.

Featuring a pool and spacious gardens along with floor to ceiling windows showcasing the beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean, downtown LA and the breathtaking mountain scenery, the Trousdale hideaway is exactly what the couple was looking for.

Speaking with Architectural Digest, John remarked that the couple was seeking a “manageably sized residence where their children could move around freely and have access to a front and back garden.”

Lacquered paint was used throughout, providing both a child-friendly finish as well as a striking design feature, creating the perfect canvas for hanging some of the couples famed art collection.

Covered in silver Myla, the master bedroom’s ceiling reflects the artwork and photographs hanging on the walls along with the striking views outside the glass walls.
