Architectural Digest ran this article on artist's homes in 2009.
(Go here for more homes...) pink foyers oh my!

1. David Hockney’s hillside home on the West Coast is a constantly evolving stage set for the artist’s highly individual ideas. “Everyone who comes here likes it. People don’t dare such colors,” comments the artist. Above: In the entrance hall, a painted wood cutout by Mo McDermott and Lisa Lombardi represents a character in Hockney’s production of The Rake’s Progress. The 1979 Hockney lithograph is Celia—Weary.

2. In an old Dutch barn where livestock was raised a century ago, a different sort of creation now thrives—the art of Kenneth Noland. The barn, which he converted into a studio, shelters the “stuff” of his art, as well as its “illusions.” Above: Arresting images by the artist and a landscape painting by Mondrian are arrayed on master bedroom walls. A Moroccan rug mirrors the diamond motif of a patchwork quilt.
