You know you’ve done it, just admit it. While watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you’ve hit pause. Not because you're taking a phone call or are replenishing your snacks, but because Lisa Vanderpump’s home Villa Rosa is on the screen and you’re trying to take it all in before the camera whirls around to another room. Admit it!
And here’s the thing: I can’t blame you, because I’ve done it too (and maybe I’ve actually stood up and walked closer to the TV so I can get an even better view). Why do we do it? Because there’s just so much to take in when it comes to the architecture, design, and décor of Villa Rosa. Lavish landscaping flanks open-air dining rooms, overstuffed antique chairs accent famous artwork — it’s a dizzying amount of details and we want to soak them all in!
Luckily for us, Lisa recently offered an intimate look into her abode on her and daughter Pandora Vanderpump Sabo's personal blog Very Vanderpump. “Villa Rosa, our home, is one of my favorite places in the world,” Lisa wrote. “Every morning I wake up and look over the incredibly lush and isolated valley below my windows and I can't help feeling happy, humbled and grateful. Villa Rosa is a lush oasis, nestled into the rolling rises of Beverly Hills — it feels like it's in the middle of the countryside and yet it's only 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of the town below.”
Take a tour of the sprawling home below — and go ahead and zoom in on those photos, don’t worry, I'm not judging.
That Backyard, Tho
Sure, we've seen Lisa and Ken lounging poolside before, but this photo depicts just how stately the home's facade is.
The Most Lush Entryway Ever
Hydrangeas? Check. Hanging plants? Check. Oversized urns placed gently in the water moat? Check. Lisa sure does know a thing or two about setting a romantic scene for visitors.
A Sitting Room with a View
Talk about mixing mediums! Lisa's got white leather, black velvet, pink velvet, red chrome, and crystals... all in one room. What's really catching our eye, however, are the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking breathtaking Beverly Hills views.
Check Out Those Seamless Glass Railings
Why blockade views with old-school wooden railings? You don't, according to LVP!
A Mirrored Dining Room for the Ages
When you're surrounded by lush landscapes, the best way to reflect them is with mirrors, of course! We're also zooming in on that over-the-top crystal chandelier and those ornate candelabras.
Another Serene Sitting Room
Anchored by a baby grand piano, this room is ALL LVP, with neutral, creamy hues, pops of pink, and of course, a huge Marilyn Monroe portrait.
One More (Super Fuzzy) Sitting Room
Another room with more seating options for Lisa and Ken's many guests! What we can't stop staring at in this cozy space, however, is the pair of overstuffed, fuzzy chairs flanking the matching couches. Talk about conversation starters! Where, oh where, do we get a matching pair?
A Dining Nook
Let us count the ways we love this dining room! Our favorite details? The millennial pink velvet chairs, the French doors opening to the backyard, and that giant urn housing an oversized plant. Despite looking like a smaller space, the round table seats eight.
The Sprawling Master Bedroom
We've seen peeks of Lisa and Ken's bedroom before, but capturing the whole massive space in one shot has us gaping over the details — the light pink and gold-encrusted chairs, the sliding doors out to a private balcony, the four-post bed in the background. The result is utterly sumptuous, and of course, utterly Lisa.
A Really, Really Huge Closet
Home to more Birkins than we'll ever know, Lisa's closet sets the Real Housewives bar really high.
Say Hello to Ken's Closet!
One room we've never seen before is the one where Ken hangs all those colorful button-downs! Not surprisingly, his closet is just as color-coordinated as Lisa's.
