The Liberace Mansion was Liberace’s most celebrated property and his favorite home of all. In addition to its flamboyance and grandeur, the mansion served as the business center of Liberace’s operations. Famous celebrities, such as Ginger Rogers and Dolly Parton, attended Liberace’s parties there, mingling with Las Vegas entertainers and local residents. Many Las Vegas residents remember fondly special occasions inside the home. Many of Liberace’s neighbors on Shirley Street recall his greetings to them as he traveled back and forth to his palatial residence.
Liberace designed the mansion with a dominant theme of mirrors—mosaic-etched mirrors, mirrored halls, mirrored pianos, massive mirrors etched with work patterned by Aubrey Vincent Beardsley, British illustrator and author.
These signature segments are in the style of Japanese woodcuts, emphasizing the grotesque, the decadent, and the erotic. Beardsley was part of the Aesthetic Movement, which also included Oscar Wilde and James A. McNeill Whistler.
The Art Nouveau detail in the Liberace Mansion’s formal living room is unique among Las Vegas décor. The living room provided the at-home setting for Liberace’s interview with Ron Reagan, Jr., and the etched glass pieces were included in Robin Leach’s walk through during his Las Vegas home interview with Liberace for “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.”
The Liberace Mansion was recognized as a luxurious private home with glass, class and sass. It was Liberace’s oasis in the desert. It served as his location for sumptuous parties attended by the glitterati, as well as family, friends, neighbors, and charity functions. As one tours the house, many one-of-a-kind architectural features may be noted, reflecting the personal taste and character of Liberace.
