Given what we've come to expect from a Kelly Wearstler-designed interior—bejeweled, rock-and-roll maximalism, heavy on the marble, appointed with shell-like sofas, metal-plated severed hands, sea-anemone lighting fixtures, and the like—the 11,137-square-foot Brentwood compound that outgoing DreamWorks CEO Stacy Snider just hefted onto the market is a tad bit restrained. The excessively beloved superstar interior designer was enlisted alongside architect M. Brian Tichenor to revamp the 1940s estate, which Snider and her music producer husband bought back in 1999 for $3.6M. Sadly, it's got none of the abounding metallic tones that the "West Coast's reigning queen of razzle-dazzle" visited upon Cameron Diaz's Elle Decor-approved NYC apartment, and unlike her work on the Viceroy Miami, there's not a single stained-glass obelisk to be found. The amount of "fiercely glamorous" geometric wall-treatments is nil, and the color palette is about as subdued as that of Wearstler's own beach house. Which isn't to say it isn't a "trophy property," as the listing states, complete with seven bedrooms, a separate guesthouse, a spacious home theater, a full gym, multiple courtyards, a formal garden, and aswimming pool. It's certainly got the glamour. But where's the fierce?
