A few weeks ago, I stopped by the gorgeous Hancock Park Tudor estate belonging to Hollywood media exec RS and his partner fab designer Tom Newman of Newman & Wolen Design. Tom and I have become friends over the years – he designed my friend SN and BN’s home remodel years ago. Love Tom’s aesthetic, style, sense of architecture and design. He is awesome. Tom and RS moved into the house this year and I was lucky to be taken on a nice afternoon tour of this huge house by Tom himself.
The home was built in 1927 and is 6100 square feet. It is awesome. The couple kept much if the original detail but just refreshed the the spaces to make them feel up-to-date.
One of the most charming rooms in the mansion for me is this little gentleman’s library right off the foyer. Wood paneled, plaid drapery, built in bookshelves, velvet sofa and original carved stone fireplace make for a warm, cozy, somewhat regal and at the same time inviting room! Makes me want to get off the computer, tablet and smart phone…curl up with a nice COCOCOZY throw blanket and open up a book and of all things…read the book!
Anyhooo here’s a look at this wonderful space. A modern throwback…a classic space.

Thank you Tom for inviting me over and letting me snap a million photos!
Can’t wait to come over for a glamorous black tie dinner party in the next few months…I look best in fall and winter and I have several black tie long gowns ready to go. TE has a nice tux too…so I’m sure he would love to come. Oh…sorry…just made up a party at Tom and RS’s house and then invited myself and boyfriend over…is that rude?
Anyhooo…will show you more of this grand home later. May have to go back and take a few more photos. Oops there I go again…inviting myself over!
P.S. The kitchen in Tom’s previous home inspired three (3) COCOCOZY readers to remodel their homes….click here to see Tom’s former kitchen and how it was interpreted by blog readers!
