Wrought Iron Decorating Ideas from Ashlee Simpson’s Home
When singer and actress Ashlee Simpson listed her 7,100-square-foot villa in the Beverly Hills Post Office area for $3.69 million in spring of 2011, realtor.com posted 20 photos of the fabulous Mediterranean style house on its website. With five bedrooms, six and a half baths, a pool and spa, media room, meditation room and breath-taking views of canyons, mountains and greenbelts, the listing was sure to go fast.
Not surprisingly the listing agent, Sotheby’s International, reported the house had sold by June 2011 for $3.475 million, not too far off the asking price in a slow real estate market. While we’re sure the meditation garden and gourmet kitchen had plenty to do with the quick sale, what really attracted us about the photos of Ms. Simpson’s home were the many and varied uses of wrought iron. From the railing on the second-floor balcony to lighting fixtures and accent pieces, wrought iron is a repeated decorating theme throughout the home.
A Hollywood Mansion for Big Bang Theory Actor Simon Helberg
Charlie Sheen made quite a splash when the drug- and booze-fueled antics in his Mediterranean-style Hollywood mansion came to light. As a result, the new owner of the home – “Big Bang Theory” actor Simon Helberg – will likely be a much more popular tenant in the historic Los Feliz neighborhood. Helberg acquired the mini-mansion, built in 1927, for $2.9 million and now has 4,200 square feet of luxury to explore. The Los Feliz home has been on the real estate market since 2009, just two years less than Helberg has starred on the hit TV series.
Wrought Iron Plant Hangers
The rustic artistry of wrought iron plant hangers is a great way to express your style and add that extra touch of class to your hanging foliage. Most wrought iron plant hangers have an artful arch which attaches to either a wall or to a post and is used to suspend hanging baskets or pots filled with lush leaves or heavy blooms. But some wrought iron plant hangers are simpler, designed with an understated iron clamp to display clay pots creatively indoors or outside on fences.
Wrought Iron Garden Stakes
I love my wrought iron garden stakes. They are a constant in the ever changing tides of color that ebb and flow through the flower beds that frame my back yard. When song birds first whisper and then crescendo into a orchestra’s worth of counterpointed warbles and spring emerges as if conjured up with a melodic incantation by those winged magicians, my wrought iron garden stakes stand tall, ready to greet the first bulb plants willing to brave the cold and daring enough to splash color on drab winter beds.

Wrought Iron Garden Accessories, Inside?
Spring is in the air and your green thumb is probably itching to be outside getting your backyard garden started for the year.
