Venue Setting

The Paramour Estate is secreted behind immense walls in the celebrated Silver Lake district of Hollywood. The estate crowns the highest promontory in the Los Angeles basin and boasts sweeping views of the grand towers of downtown, the San Gabriel Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Originally commissioned in 1918 by oil heiress Daisy Canfield and her dashing husband, silent screen star Antonio Moreno, the Beaux-Arts inspired Mediterranean mansion and guest quarters were completed in 1923. Many of the great luminaries of the Golden Age of Hollywood attended lavish film industry parties at the Estate which was situated midway between Disney Studios, Max Sennett Stages and Paramount Pictures.

Today, the mansion is decorated with a rare and unusual collection of art and antiques that honor its illustrious past. The historic guest quarters have been reimagined as vintage bungalows marrying classic architectural detail with contemporary comfort and design. The Mansion Suites are seductively adorned with exotic textiles, rare furnishings, and eclectic paintings. The sprawling grounds encompass four acres of fountains, soaring 100-year-old trees, footpaths, rose gardens, and a pine forest.

Venue Features
The Paramour is a masterfully restored Beaux-Arts inspired Mediterranean Estate built in the golden age of Hollywood, the roaring 1920's. The estate holds all the original historic details indicative of mansions of the era built by the founding families of early Los Angeles. Hand-forged iron balconies, carved rare stone fire mantles, marble mosaic tile, antique crystal chandeliers, and deeply carved wood doors inspired by a grand tour of Europe more than a century ago. The owner, Dana Hollister, a world-class designer in her own right, has adorned the mansion with her private collection with gilded baroque mirrors, rare cloisonne urns, exotic paintings and vivid Art Deco Chinese carpets. Submerging into this bohemian and exotic environment is a seductive act of both time travel and imagination.
