Dancing With The Stars at Home

You don’t have to be outside of LA to enjoy the country. Berchtold Harris designs a brilliant country sunroom and lush fountain garden for Dancing With The Stars producer, and Emmy Award winning casting director, Valoree and John Papsidera. Prior to getting ready for an all-new season of quicksteps and hot paced salsa dancing, Valoree and John called upon Samantha and Julie to transform their home into a classic cottage serene getaway tucked deep within the Hollywood Hills.

Combining classic décor with casual comfort, designer Samantha Harris was determined to transform the house into a peaceful and tranquil home. The wall-to-wall windows are the ‘Star’ of the room until you gaze outside across the limestone embedded stone design and rest your eyes on the one of a kind fenced fountain garden.

Purposely designed with pen to paper, Berchtold Harris brings back tradition with art and style. Long before the construction began, Samantha sketched her vision. From casual sketches to the intricate architectural drawing, and another Berchtold Harris design emerges.

Both Julie and Samantha felt a fountain garden would add a distinct element of nature entwined with elegance. “The added element of water can transcend and enhance any environment,” mentions Samantha and Julie. “Our greatest achievement is to know that our clients can escape the hectic world of their work lives and dance under the stars in their own designer home.”
