I am fortunate enough to live with one of my best friends, Fleur Saville, in a rambling old Hollywood home built in the 1930’s. Over the years it has had various tacky renovations but it has so much heart and personality and has housed some great dinner parties. – Rose in 2013, about the home she shared with Fleur.
