Lisa D'Amato, TV personality, Adam Friedman, entrepreneur, and baby Daxel.
This nursery is important for two reasons: it's circus-themed and inside of a Hollywood castle's turret.

Hollywood is a weird place. The Land of Dreams, glamour and reality television is full of characters and site-specific oddities. Take, for example, The Hollywood Castle. Built in the 1970s by Chuck Friedman, it is forever immortalized in Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” music video and is now home to Chuck’s son Adam, his wife Lisa D’Amato and their baby boy Daxel. You might recognize Lisa from America’s Next Top Model but do you recognize Daxel’s new nursery? Probably not because we’ve never seen one like this before, ever. Lisa wanted a fun, circus-themed space for the castle’s upper turret bedroom (yes, turret!). With Homepolish designer Vanessa de Vargas, the space was transformed from a carpeted and pale-green-walled room to a special, cohesive and fun nursery. Window treatments, paint colors, furnishings and new floors went a very long way to make the most of this round room. Tour the space in our slideshow!
