Modern decorating mixed with a traditional Japanese Tea House. Highly illogical.
It makes more sense when you realize that Leonard Nimoy, of Star Trek fame, has a wife who likes to use the Tea House to meditate. Otherwise, the Bel Air home emphasizes white walls, black floors, and art that looks better because of the first two things.
Regular blog readers will know that this place is not my style, but I also get that others would disagree and that's fine.
It's also interesting that Nimoy points out that the placement of his office allows him to see who is coming and going through the front door. Apparently he does not want people materializing in front of him without warning. Ironic, isn't it?
Yes, pointy ears are in fact on display.
