Andy Warhol floral study in David Copley's Petco condo

John Moores on the floors above

— Customarily reticent David Copley is speaking out, but it's not about future plans for the Union-Tribune now that the rest of the newspaper chain left him by his late mother Helen has been sold for $380 million. Instead, Copley -- sporting some impressive bling, including a gold band on the ring finger of his left hand, and wearing a maroon jacket with a paisley hankie tucked into the left pocket -- shows off his super-sized condo next to Petco Park in this month's San Diego Home/Garden magazine. Actually, Copley himself doesn't say very much in the six-page spread, letting his interior designer Walter J. Nelson and the lavish decor featured in the photos do most of the talking.

There's an "Andy Warhol floral study" above the dining room fireplace; "copper cactus sculptures" from Paris; a "pair of lamps from Barbara Hutton's famous estate"; a copper nightstand in a guest bedroom "with patterns in relief made by a repoussé hammering process"; bar stools originally designed for Joan Crawford; "original costume sketches from the movie Hook"; an "outsized shower with twin overhead lighted shower fixtures"; and drawings by "wrap artist" Christo.

"The master closet is home to Copley's treasured Padres jersey, a gift from the team," the magazine reports. The 3600-square-foot unit with a 300-degree panoramic view was created from two standard-sized 26th-floor units purchased by Copley Press, Inc., from Padres owner John Moores, who the publication says owns "a suite of family condos" on the floors above Copley's. "The condo also doubles as a very popular venue for business meetings" held by the "bachelor media mogul."
