About two and a half years ago, Mark Ronson moved into his Spanish style Los Angeles, California, home. Ronson, an English-American musician, DJ, singer, songwriter, and record producer, is probably best known for his collaborations with artists like Amy Winehouse, Lady Gaga, Adele, Lily Allen, Miley Cyrus, Queens of the Stone Age, and Bruno Mars. But all that could change when you check out the video tour of his home in the hillside neighborhood Los Feliz.
Los Feliz is located adjacent to Hollywood and includes part of the Santa Monica Mountains. It’s this picturesque setting that provides the backdrop to Ronson’s home. The home has a Spanish style to it, and Ronson ascribes to the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” philosophy. Rather than tear out all the tile and other Spanish-inspired décor, Ronson left it be. Ronson, who admits to being into patterns, added in different styles, admitting that “it might be someone’s idea of a technicolor nightmare, but I dig it.”
The living room features a self-playing piano, as well as a few of Ronson’s favorite pop culture items. The room also includes photos of his sister and a Moise Kisling painting. In fact, the entire house is a collection of things that have special meaning to him. The dining room is decked out in a wallpaper reproduction of the tiger print used for a coach in his childhood home in London. A mannequin in the corner of his dining room holds a Andy Warhol Campbell’s Soup print dress. The kitchen island is a gathering place for guests.
“Well, I guess sometimes when you’re decorating a house, and then you look at it when it’s all finished, you’re like, ‘I guess I really like yellow and zebras,’” Ronson notes, and it does indeed seem to be the case. Ronson also likes to share those things that have special meaning, such as a letter from Stevie Wonder and a plaque from Bruno Mars.
The house is definitely a representation of who Ronson is, and is a very eclectic mix that somehow flows.
