Super model Alessandra Ambrosio has been ranked as one of the highest-earning fashion models for years, and her name routinely turns up in popular media on lists of the world’s sexiest and most beautiful women. She has walked the runway and appeared in advertisements for myriad titans of couture, and she has parlayed that success into business ventures of her own, including her Ále by Alessandra fashion and lifestyle brand. She retired from the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion spectacle after lighting up the catwalk for 17 years in 2017. She would love to be at home with her kids since she has traveled so much for her work. So today we are going to tour her 1920s residence in Santa Monica. The house is a quintessentially Angeleno Spanish Colonial Revival design and can feel and smell the ocean breeze just like how she lives in Brazil. Read on for our favorite highlights of this dream home.
The Chinese cabinet, the blue ceramic tiles on the stair noses and vintage bold color Persian rug, the Indian green fabric on the table lamp shades set the tone of a joyful exotic global decor influence. The more we look at these design elements in the entry, the more we feel fascinated how Martyn Lawrence Bullard, the effervescent celebrity AD100 designer, pull layers of patterns and colors together in such a magical and harmonious way.
The relaxing plush dark sectional sofa with the beautiful patterned textiles on the decorative pillows atop of it, the dark wicker lounge chair and the small wood side table hint a Brazilian boho vibe. A white area rug lights up the living room seating area and creates such a nice contrast with all of the dark tones.
This is a living room full with young and fresh energy.
A brown wood slab table anchors this tropical-feel dining area and together with wicker dining chairs reminds us of Ambrosio’s Brazilian heritage.
We truly love the color story in this breakfast nook area. It is such a fun and joy to mix colors together from the tabletop to the dining chairs.
These black-and-white photography of rock stars, fashion shoots, and Ambrosio herself—is another staple of the decor. The take-away decor lesson here is always hanging art on the walls that means something to you.
A mother-of-pearl inlaid mirror infuses a touch of elegance and glamour to this all-white master bath. A dark wood chair in the corner with fresh flowers atop it is inviting and interesting.
Outdoor Living Space
Teak chairs and a bench in a striped pattern in the front courtyard create a formal yet relaxing outdoor seating area surrounded by the lush greenery. It is such a get-away heaven at home.
It looks like that the backyard is where real life is happening–swimming, outdoor bar, picnic area decorated with colorful boho textile, barbecue… Who wouldn’t want spend a whole summer here? It is such a happy beach house full of cheers and joys.
