Inside Ed Hardy Creator's Suprisingly Non-Tacky Home

What comes to mind when you think of Ed Hardy?

Tattoos? Tigers? Tacky?

The man behind the brand, french designer Christian Audigier, has listed his Los Angeles mansion for sale. The asking price? A cool $8.625 million (the home was bought for $4.78 million in January 2007). The seven bedroom, seven bath home is 8,276 square feet, so it's going for about $1,000 per square foot. There's even a buyer's incentive -- Audigier is throwing in a Rolls Royce Phantom 5 along with the sale of the home. The car alone is worth more than a hundred grand -- enough to buy a house in many other cities.

Aside from the sitting room -- with it's over-sized hot pink couches and lacquered floors -- Audigier's house is surprisingly un-tacky. This a man who counts The Situation and Jon Gosselin among his clients. Granted, there are his trademark design elements scattered throughout (crowns, animal print), but those are mostly removable.The kitchen is tasteful, and the pool area and guest house look amazing.
