“Design Intervention” at the 2019 Toronto Fall Home Show ReCap
On October 4 to 6, at the Toronto Fall Home Show, RENO & DECOR magazine hosted Design Intervention. Design and decor experts provided free 15-minute consultations to our guests. Attendees brought in photos, samples, and floorplans to ensure they optimized their appointments.
The booth was designed by Catherine-Lucie Horber, principal of Royal Interior Design Ltd. The inspiration was a multi-functional industrial loft, open-concept layout.
We are so happy and thankful to have participated in the 2019 Fall Home Show with RENO & DECOR magazine. It was great to meet and help customers with their renovation and design dilemmas. Our Industrial and rustic fall colour inspired booth design pleased our crowd and we are grateful to all of the sponsors who helped bring our vision to reality!

It may have been the most infamous house-painting job in Los Angeles history in 2005 when mega-rocker-star Prince painted NBA-star Carlos Boozer's Beverly Hills home in purple stripes. New to the market, the home just as elegant as when Prince and Elizabeth Taylor lived there decades before, is now for sale priced at $29.995 million.
When Alaskan-native Boozer signed with the Utah Jazz in 2004 for big money, he wanted a home in the sun and bought a stunning Southern California tennis estate, decorating it with the best expensive furnishings. Almost as good as his new home, his music idol, Prince, offered him $95,000 per month for a one-year lease and soon moved in. A couple of months later when Boozer was back in LA, he discovered that Prince had changed almost everything about his house. His beautiful furnishings were gone and replaced by black-and-purple everything. The weight room was now a disco dance floor with a DJ booth and his bedrooms converted to a hair salon and massage parlor. Boozer called "foul" and threatened to sue but Prince soon returned everything back to the way it was when he first rented the home. The two became best friends up until Prince's death in 2016.
Today, the mansion is on an estate comprising the main house of approximately 15,101 square feet and an English Tudor home of 3,300 square feet, along with two extra parcels of land making up the total compound of 2.15 acres. The palatial main house has 10 bedrooms, 13 baths, a ballroom, wine room, large terraces for entertaining with views of city and ocean, a rooftop tennis court, and a pool with stone grotto reminiscent of the Playboy Mansion. Built in 1953 at the cusp between Old Hollywood and the new, it is a home that was designed for entertaining and saw many a grand party over the years, including a few Prince concerts for his friends.
Now seeking its next new owner, one of L.A.'s most significant homes and former residence of Prince and Elizabeth Taylor, is for sale at $29.995 million, or for lease of the main mansion at $80,000 per month.
