Donna and the design team promptly bonded over blending the arts, furniture and fashion. The team took inspiration from the home’s expansive views of the mountains, golf course and sparkling lights of the Strip at night to create Donna’s ultimate private club-inspired hideaway. Through many late-night phone calls, texts and emails, Donna and the design team selected paint, wallpapers, rugs and light fixtures for each room in the 8,000-square-foot home, which has a multi-level floor plan.
The Orange County team sourced much of Donna’s new pieces from Cantoni’s Malerba collections out of Italy, including the Secret Love, One and Only and M Place lines. Donna was often privy to pieces before they were even on the Cantoni showroom floor, and she took part in hand-selecting works of art with the team as the final step of the design process.
“I learned how to layer,” Donna says. “We started with the basics and then layered, and it all made sense and came together. It has a warm, comfortable, elegant feel. It’s the perfect space to call my own."
