BOOKS"This is a fraction of the books I own. I love reading. When I imagine myself with some more time I'm sitting on that couch with a book. As the world becomes more digital it makes me love books even more. I think they're beautiful, special, memorable things"LARGE PAINTING"It's by a local painter called Kirsten Everberg. She lays the painting flat and layers the oil paint on top of each other, so it's very globby and abstract - built up in areas and thin in others - I love her work"LAMP"It's an old lamp from the 1960s or 1970s and we got it as a gift from a friend when we moved into the house"the view"We're right on Mulholland Drive, so the view is to Los Angeles, and on a clear day you can see all the way to the ocean and even Catalina"DESK"In the original photos of the house there were bookshelves built in like that, so we had them re-built and added that section for the computer. I sit there when I need a large screen, but most of the time I use the laptop or the iPad"OWL MODEL"The owl is from the 1960s, from a sculptor who worked with metal called Jere. I think this series of owls is amazing"glasses"I own quite a few pairs, but I do love these ones in particular. These ones are relatively new, they are from Oliver Peoples"
Residing in a cinematic 1960s house on the infamous Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles, Mr Bill Damaschke, 47, has an enviable office setting. "I get to work from home pretty often," he says. "The view helps with inspiration, although right now I seem to be spending most of my time in the air, flying back and forth to London to oversee the running of our theatrical production of Shrek."
Shrek the Musical is now on at Theatre Royal, London.
