It's always Christmas at Carrie's! Inside the quirky home of the eccentric Carrie Fisher who kept a Christmas tree - complete with a Darth Vader bauble - up ALL YEAR ROUND

  • The Star Wars actress died of a heart attack on December 27, a day before her mother Debbie Reynolds died
  • They lived next door to each other in Beverly Hills, and they have left behind the pedigreed Hollywood estate
  • Eccentric home is full of mismatched vintage furniture and collectables, including a huge stain glass window
  • The house is centered on her love of Christmas, including the tree that stayed up all year round in Hollywood?

Carrie Fisher’s quirky Beverly Hills home has been left untouched since her sudden death, including a Christmas tree complete with a Darth Vader bauble which she used to keep up all year round.

The Star Wars actress, who died on December 27 after suffering a heart attack, lived next door to her mother, Oscar winner Debbie Reynolds, who passed away a day later, and left behind a Hollywood pedigreed estate.

Her bohemian bedroom looks like it could be from a different universe - with a huge colorful rug and bright bed spread, giant lit-up headboard, chandelier and antique lamps.

The home is full of mismatched vintage furniture and collectables, including a huge stain glass window in her living room made for her by a friend in England.

And her love of Christmas takes center stage. On the holiday, she once famously said: 'I don't think Christmas is necessarily about things. It's about being good to one another, it's about the Christian ethic, it's about kindness.'?

These pictures were taken in May - months after Fisher passed away.?

But despite the fact she died in December, during the holiday season, the Christmas tree and the decorations would have been in place regardless of the month.?

Todd Fisher, the actresses brother, has previously said the Christmas tree and fireplaces kept going year round in her eclectic home.

Carrie previously spoke about her 1919 residence in Coldwater Canyon in a feature for Architectural Digest in 2004, saying: 'I had so much stuff, I had to live in a place where it wanted to go.?

'The furniture was definitely in charge of where I ended up. If you can say anything about the house, it's always been playful.'

Her home originally belonged to Robert Armstrong, the ship's captain in King Kong, and the likes of Bette Davis have also lived there.

Carrie, who died aged 60, turned her guest room into a home for wandering Brits, and struck up an unlikely friendship with musician James Blunt, who wrote his hit ‘You’re Beautiful’ during his stay. She fed him soup, watched home movies with him, and even put a cardboard cut-out of Princess Leia outside of his bedroom for protection.

In an interview, she said: 'He’s never been to therapy and I've had enough for both of us, so we started talking quite deeply about his time in the army and the kind of impact that had had. And so on. So I was kind of his shrink/landlady.'

It is thought the house will soon be put up for sale.?

He stayed at the property for five months and recorded in her bathroom, where she bizarrely keeps a piano due to the good acoustics.

Security has now been upped at Carrie’s property, which belongs to her daughter, Billie Lourd, while her uncle, Todd Fisher, decides what to do with the home.

A friend exclusively told Dailymail.com: 'There are only two members of staff left, but there is a lot more security and cameras in most rooms.

'Nobody knows what is going to happen to the property, or Debbie’s, but we would love celebrity tours to visit. They both collected so many fascinating items over the years and had different, unique tastes when it came to decor.'

Debbie once held a huge collection of cinematic treasures, including Marilyn Monroe’s famous white dress from The Seven Year Itch, and Julie Andrews' guitar from The Sound of Music.

She tried for years to have the items put on display in a museum but was forced to part with them before she died, although she still kept dozens of props from movies at her home.

Meanwhile, a public memorial is being planned at Forest Lawn in Burbank, where the pair were buried side by side, giving fans the chance to pay their respects with friends and family.

A source said: 'It was a huge shock when they passed so suddenly and close together, and everyone is still grieving.

'But the family want to organize something special at the end of March for people to pay their respects.'?
