A home’s interior can tell us many things about the people living there. From the style of furniture they use, to the myriad of ways that accent items are displayed, to the artwork hanging on the walls – all contribute to tell a unique story about the home’s occupants. That’s why we especially enjoy taking a peek into famous homes, as we can learn more about the lives of people we admire and respect.
Reese Witherspoon’s seven-acre property in Ojai, California simply gave us goosebumps at first glance. With a beautiful collection of custom chairs, European antiques, rustic accessories and carefully hand-selected art pieces, the home captures an ethereal and poetic quality with subtle nuances that delight and inspire. This magical ranch-style home was created as a restorative retreat, but we love its traditional yet youthful charm.
As soon as we spotted Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Adobe-style home, our jaws dropped at all the ravishing details. Magnificently tall ceilings and majestic pillars line the palatial living room, which provides a stunning hillside view and an impeccable selection of eye-popping color in floral arrangements and luxurious accents.
This gorgeous Malibu retreat was designed by Stephen Samuelson, and offers a sumptuous feast for the eyes. Here, the focus is on putting nature at the forefront, utilizing high end furniture that emphasizes the warmth of nature and exudes an enchanting, nurturing charisma. A simple tree-branch lamp, raw wood coffee table, and rustic hand-carved pillars create the impression of luxury with a peaceful, meditative touch.
Brooke Shields’ charming Manhattan townhouse realizes a cozy trip down memory lane. Lovely traditional accent chairs, a sophisticated canopy bed, and subtle color contrasts in every room make for an inviting atmosphere. Filled with a nostalgic allure, family memories grace the home’s interior, as Shields states, “I promised myself I would give my girls the kind of richly textured urban childhood that comes with sinking roots into a real New York neighborhood. I wanted to create for them, and us, an experience of home with a layered and resonant personal history.”
