Curren$y, Slick Woods, Chika & Hype Williams Take Over Frank Sinatra's Palm Springs Mansion
Legendary video and film director, Hype Williams, took the latest ad campaign for Jay-Z’s Monogram cannabis line to bigger, more lavish, heights with a little assistance from Curren$y, Slick Woods, Chika, stylist Aleali May, and Ghetto Gastro.
The campaign is a refreshing play on the work of photographer Slim Aarons. And while Aarons’ popular 70s era images were taken at the home once owned by Barry Manilow, Jay-Z and Hype Williams found a location equally as iconic –– Frank Sinatra’s Twin Palms estate in Palm Springs.
If you’re looking to lace your Instagram page with some photos like these, it’ll come with a hefty price tag. We found the 4 bed, 6.5 bath home where the Monogram ad campaign was taken and it’s currently listed on Airbnb for a whopping $3,300 a night. But if you have the money to spend, the sizable price tag is definitely worth it.
According to the listing, Frank Sinatra personally enlisted Palm Springs architect, E. Stewart Williams, to design the home in 1947. Each bedroom is uniquely designed and although there have been recent upgrades, the Hollywood elegance and Sinatra’s original touches can still be found.
Inside, the home is equipped with floor-to-ceiling windows, a grand piano, and a vintage audio system. The kitchen was given a retro makeover.
Wake up in the master bedroom where you’ll find a fireplace at the foot of the king-size bed and sliding doors that wrap the walls. Exit through the sliding doors to bake in a chaise lounge poolside, all while admiring the mid-century architecture and leisurely swaying palm trees just like Chika.
Like the master bedroom, the second bedroom also has a fireplace and access to the terrace. The third room gets plenty of sunlight, and the fourth room takes retro to all new levels with its 70s tropical decor.
Frank Sinatra’s recording studio still remains in the home, as well as photos and other memorabilia, making this an ideal stay for almost any music or history buff. The home is also minutes away from the Palm Springs Art Museum and the Moorten Botanical Garden, so if you’re down to make the splurge, you can book here.
*Note: The listing says there’s no smoking allowed on the property, but you can do whatever you want when you’re a billionaire like Jay-Z.
