See Inside Melissa Rivers' Santa Monica Home Featuring Tributes to Mom Joan Rivers
Melissa Rivers' home is full of emotion and style.
The 52-year-old star opened the doors to her Santa Monica, California home for an exclusive ArchitecturalDigest.com.
According to the point of sale, Melissa had lived on a Pacific Palisades block for nearly a quarter of a century before deciding to purchase her current 7,048-square-foot Mediterranean-style villa.
"After my mother [Joan Rivers] passed away, I felt it was just time for a change," she said. "It was a great home, but it was time to take a step forward and create a new environment for me and my son."
After purchasing the property, Melissa began a two-year renovation with the help of interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. He helped "create something light and bright with positive energy," which also served as "just the right backdrop" for some of the works of art and collections she inherited from her late parents.
"As formal as some areas in this house are, it never feels overwhelming," Melissa told AD. "There is a warmth and a light, a happiness. It is definitely a happy home."

In the vanity of Melissa's glamorous room, she keeps some of her most prized possessions. For example, it includes a drawing of her and her son Cooper designed by Joan, as well as three portraits from when Melissa was a young child.
"My father asked her good friend, photographer Kenn Duncan, to take this," she said. "They were either a Mother's Day or a birthday present from my father to my mother."

When visitors wander through Melissa's house, they will also see an exquisite dining room with some diamond-set frames from her mother, as well as a beautiful bedroom with some items from Joan's malachite collection.
There's also a stunning office with Joan's awards, a quaint courtyard, and a colorful kitchen. As Melissa put it, "I'm a terrible cook, but I love beautiful cuisine."
