Life in the limelight isn’t always easy, so it helps to have a comfortable home to return to at the end of a long day. Celebrities know that, which is why they round up some really talented designers and architects to turn their dream homes into a reality.
While many of us may not be able to afford luxurious homes like these, we can still apply some of these interior design tips to lend our homes the appeal of comfort, luxury and grace.
1. Rachael Ray’s cosy Southampton home
Rachael Ray’s Hamptons estate has been placed on the market for US$4.9 million and boasts a large pool and a custom-designed kitchen.
Rachael opted for pebbled granite walls, ivory cabinets and stainless steel counter tops for her custom-designed kitchen. Her living room is generously furnished with her own home decor line.
Thanks to the strategic placement of windows and Rachael’s impressive taste for neutrals, her house is a bright, sun-drenched place. The fresh white walls, wooden floors and neutral colours all play a role in creating a perfectly cosy vibe.
2. Celine Dion’s extravagant Florida mansion
Dion’s Florida mansion is the epitome of extravagance. Even the price tag of US$38.5 billion is insane. The master bathroom is massive, and she has a free standing bathtub aligned directly in front of the doors to allow ample sunlight (or moonlight) in when she’s taking a soothing bath.
The bedroom is equally lavish with a TV mounted into the ceiling.
3. Ellen DeGeneres’ seaside mansion in California
The witty TV personality purchased a new beach front estate outside of Los Angeles, where she can have quiet, relaxing retreats overlooking vibrant sunsets over the ocean. It is reported that Ellen spent US$18.6 million on this mansion.
Ellen’s beach home contains lots of stark white walls adorned with wooden floors, cabinetry and natural light. It’s simple and sophisticated at the same time.
4. Jennifer Lopez’s luxurious Manhattan penthouse
When you’re J Lo and live in a four-bedroom penthouse in New York City, it’ll be one of the most stylish penthouses in the city. She is reportedly selling the penthouse for US$26.95 million.
The white walls open up the space even more, complete with high ceilings, smooth polished oak floors, a skylight and gorgeous French doors.
Her terrace contains a swanky canopy with Christmas bulbs, which makes it a super cosy spot for cocktails and conversations. She carpeted it with grass and added comfy sofas, lots of plants and an eclectic crate-turned-coffee table.
She has two master bathrooms flanking her bedroom. The culmination of Italian marble, white furniture and sleek glass contribute to the luxurious aesthetic.
5. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ beach side retreat
Ashton and Mila bought a cute beach house near Santa Barbara, California, perfect for a sweet getaway from their bustling work lives and the noisy demands of Los Angeles.
This adorable beach side retreat offers perfect views of the ocean. Imagine waking up to the sound of crashing waves and the feel of ocean breeze rustling through our hair.
The interior was designed with a Californian coastal motif in mind: white walls, cathedral ceilings, wooden furniture and a white tiled-back-splash in the kitchen.
