Donald Robertson’s Blue House In Sunset Park, $3MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Donald Robertson loves color. An artist and cosmetics executive who has been roving creative director at Estee Lauder since 2007, color has always been an integral part of Robertson’s life– and no doubt what drew him to Sunset Park’s Blue House when he settled his family in Santa Monica. The 3-level, 3-bed, 3-bath 1940s-era home had been previously revamped by the designer Sally Trout who gave the walled property its trademark cobalt hue and cool minimalist interiors, making it an unofficial landmark near the beach.
Along with his huge influence on the look and style of the cosmetics business, Robertson is a compulsive sketcher and prolific tastemaker with over 200K Instagram followers at @drawbertson,
The epitome of that special brand of LA Boho chic, the serene living areas pivot around a wall of niches and the kitchen just beyond, unified by expanses of wide-plank oak flooring.
What We Love: Hedged, layered and effortlessly cool, the sybaritic pool area would be hard to leave. Plus the pool is cobalt blue, not turquoise.
