Her beautiful outdoor spaces have me dreaming of summer in the chill of a southern hemisphere winter. Don’t miss the shoe-a-holic’s idea of heaven after the jump.

This gorgeous estate sits on almost half an acre in one of Los Angeles, California’s premiere neighborhoods. Last year, this new Spanish revival home was for sale and last year it sold thanks to the efforts of premier home staging expert Meridith Baer. In staging this Southern California house for sale, Meridith and her team kept the decorations simple, clean and elegant. Lots of white upholstered chairs and sofas, dark wood detailing on furniture and neutral accessories like pillows and throws. Meridith left off window coverings to take advantage of the wonderful windows and natural light, making the space bright and inviting to prospective buyers. All of these decor elements were combined not to make a bold interior design statement per se but to make the home an upscale, tasteful, stylish and livable space, a place that possible buyers could imagine as their own. Well, whatever Meridith and team did worked, the home sold for over $9 million! Here are some details on this property: almost 11,000 square feet, 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, 5 fireplaces, 2 family rooms, media room, library, office, pool, canyon views and a 4 car garage.
