That’s a wrap! Thanks to those who came along for this ride and (hopefully) read my JR book! I still have dozens (and dozens more) pics I didn’t share, so maybe I’ll post some every so often. Happy New Year!
Jane’s “house in the clouds” had a long steep driveway leading up to it. Photographer’s loving capturing photos of Jane in her convertible driving up to it.
Jane was a avid music fan, and especially love to listed to jazz. When designing her home with Kemper Nomland Jr., she made sure to include a designated space for her record collection and Seeburg console.
Jane’s Sherman Oaks home had many large windows letting in a lot natural light, but this was not the case with her bedroom. She wanted it dark as a cave for uninterrupted sleep.
Jane’s mid-Century Modern home was designed by Kemper Nomland Jr., but Jane worked closely with him along the way. The decor had an East Asian influence which she was very interested in during the late 1940s.
There’s only a few days left in the Year of Jane Russell, so I thought I would use them posting pics of my favorite Jane subject: her mid-Century modern home in the hills above Sherman Oaks. Enjoy!
Wishing all my fellow Jane fans who celebrate a safe and joy-filled Christmas.
This additional view of Jane decorating a Christmas tree is the last image from the amazing stash of 8×10 negatives we’ve been looking at throughout the year.
I was feeling under the weather yesterday (not COVID), and missed the post! As we head into the waning days of the Year of Jane Russell, here’s a shot of her trimming a Christmas tree.
