Tour Super Model Alessandra Ambrosio’s Southern California Home

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.

5 Celebrities’ Styles at Home II

We are continuing  our  5 Celebrities’ Styles at Home series today to start a whole new week. Today will be our episode 2—Tony Burch at Home.  You can click here to read episode I.

Tory Burch at Home

Tory Burch (née Robinson; born June 17, 1966) is an American fashion designer, businesswoman and philanthropist. She is the Executive Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of her own brand, Tory Burch LLC.[1] She was listed as the 73rd most powerful woman in the world by Forbes in 2015.[3]

And here is a little bit more info about her on Forbes.

  • Fashion mogul Tory Burch’s preppy-chic lifestyle brand brings in $1.5 billion in sales from apparel, footwear, watches, accessories, and fragrances.
  • The art history grad worked with designers Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang before opening a boutique in New York City’s Nolita neighborhood in 2004.
  • In December 2018, Burch became executive chairman and chief creative officer of the $1.5 billion (est. revenue) fashion company that bears her name.
  • Pierre-Yves Roussel, a former LVMH executive and Burch’s husband, took over the CEO position.
  • In March 2019, Bank of America committed $100 million to her decade-old charitable foundation that has been helping women entrepreneurs since 2014.

 

New York Apartment

Artfully layered furnishings, each in vibrant shades of red, orange or green, sit by opulent wallpaper or deco-style monochrome walls. Prints—of flora and fauna, geometric, all ebullient—are recurring fixtures. So are artworks, both large and small, Chinese pottery and old collectables. The overall effect is a luxurious riot of bright hues and patterns. “It’s eclectic,” says Burch, “and very much me.”
“I’m not a big collector, not compared to them at least. What I have always liked about my parents is how they used to gather things together, and in the house, not because of their value but because of their style and beauty. I try to do the same with the items I purchase. I just love mixing pieces from different periods. The old with the new.”

Tour Chelsea Handler ‘s Warm and Contemporary Bel Air Home

Chelsea Handler’s Bel Air home has a good location with a beautiful lush hillside landscape. Chelsea Handler bought this home  10 years ago.  And  she took a lot of efforts to modernize this home, bright it up by using a lot of light colors, and at the same time, make it warm, inviting and  cozy enough to entertain her friends and family here.  We are totally obsessed with the breath-taking California vibe she has crafted  throughout the years–soft, bright, airy, modern and relaxing indoor-outdoor style. She  has a lot of artworks in her house either she purchased by herself over the years or the gifts from her friends. And she said she usually doesn’t have any idea about those artwork until several years later. Isn’t that cute?

We summarize several design highlights we really like about her home below. So get ready for a cup of coffee, tea or glass of wine, sit back and enjoy.

1. Replace some of the walls with floor-to-the-ceiling glass windowpanes to bring in more nature light to create that typical California indoor-and-outdoor vibe.

The concert was pretty awesome.  The star-studded benefit featured at-home performances by the likes of Alicia Keys, Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes, Dave Grohl and more. Tim McGraw, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Sam Smith also performed, while Demi Lovato, Lizzo and Lady Gaga made special appearances during the evening encouraging fans with messages of hope and positivity.

For us, we are also very excited to see a little bit how these celebrities live and what their living rooms look like. Read on to see our 9 takeaways on how these Celebrities’ live.

1. The navy blue sofas are the most popular ones in these celebrities home.

Alicia Keys’ mid-century navy blue tufted sectional is chic, comfy and stylish. An orange pillow just adds a perfect pop of color. The navy blue in the artwork over the sectional and her piano continue the blue theme. Then a wood oval mid century modern coffee-table breaks the navy blue theme and let the eye take a rest.

House Tour—Kim & Kayne West’s Calming Minimalism Mansion at the Suburban of Los Angeles

—–This site contains affiliate links to products. We may receive a commission for purchases made through these links but you don’t need to pay any extra cost. 

 

Finally, the world famous couple have opened doors to Architect Digest.  Being honest with you, after I read the article, I looked  at my desk and got rid of everything in front of me in 5 minutes.  I guess that is the  power of  minimalism.  Although I still couldn’t figure out  how they make the space so pristine with their 4 kids,  I love the whole white-on-white   museum-like interiors.   I feel how they did their current home is like they did it after a long long sought-after-thinking.  Yes, let me put this way, the home looks very spiritual just like Kayne said it is a futuristic Belgian monastery  thanks to design help from the famed Belgium designer Axel Vervoordt and Kayne’s own minimalism taste.   Each  room is just like a space with art installation.  So, let’s take a look together.

 

Neutral Color Palette

AD0320_KKW_4

The neutral color palette is the most effective way to create a soothing, relaxed home and serve as a backdrop for museum-level artwork. However, in order to make people look great under neutral shades, good lighting plays a critical factor.

The Pool Area

AD0320_KKW_3

You may notice there is no Jacuzzi in this pool. But don’t worry because Kayne said they wanted the whole pool as Jacuzzi. And the  design idea is to let the kids sit on the stairs and just enjoy warm water with cheers.  How do you like the idea?

The Hallway

AD0320_KKW_9
A soaring hallway is swathed in off-white plaster.

 

AD0320_KKW_8

When Axel started to work on this project, he said they did a lot of editing and they wanted to make each space purer and purer.  I totally can relate to that. As you know we live in such a chaos environment, every time when we come back home, we want to come back to calmness.  I don’t know about you, I always try to make everything organized before I leave the house.  So when I come back home, I feel good.

In case you are inspired and interested in refreshing your home in such a similar way, we handpicked some product for you.

So you can tell the couple really keeps furniture and decor minimum.  But with the fireplace, comfy chairs  and white textures rug, the space is quite warm, inviting and intimate.

From Renée Zellweger’s baby Blue on 77th Golden Globe Awards to Home

Hi, guys, we would like to let you know that  this week is our Golden Globes Awards week. And we will talk a lot about the fashion, tabletop styling, set design  from the Awards and pair them with our favorite looks-alike interiors. Today’s blog is series 3. If you haven’t read the first two blogs, you can click here for the tabletop tips from the Awards  and click here for Billy Porter’s all-white inspired rooms

Ok, today, we are going to talk about Renée Zellweger’s stunning Baby Blue dress on the 77th Golden Globe. Obviously, she is not only one of the Best Actress but also one of the best dressed.

Renée Zellweger Wears Striking Baby Blue Strapless Gown on the Golden Globes Red Carpet

This is Zellweger’s fourth Golden Globe win. She won her first Golden Globe in 2001 for her rule in “Nurse Betty.” The next came in 2003 for “Chicago,” followed by 2004 for “Cold Mountain.”

 

The 47-year-old actress, whose portrayal of Judy Garland in Rupert Goold’s biopic, arrived at the 2020 Golden Globes in a strapless baby blue custom-made Armani Privé gown, featuring a thigh-high slit and crystal-embroidered piping.  Zellweger pulled her blonde hair back in a loose updo and wore a soft pink lipstick. She accessorized with matching Jimmy Choo pumps and a gold cuff.  Renée completed her outfit with a David Webb gold and diamond bracelet.

She does look stunning in that baby blue gown.  So the look is sleek, modern, chic yet classic at the same time.  Our take-aways to create Renee’s timeless modern classic look:

  1. Minimalism yet elegant form
  2. Yes, ice blue please,
  3. A touch of glamor—her gold bracelet and crystal pipings on her blue gown
  4. Have something loose( her loose hair style) to relax the overall look.
  5.  Keep accessories simple and minimum.

We talked about PPT’s China Porcelain, DunEdwards’ Minty Fresh, Sherwin Williams’ Naval and Pantone’ Classic blue. So you can tell that blue is pretty big this year. Actually, blue is a timeless color and versatile for all kinds of interiors. We round up some blue modern classic interiors here to pair with Renee’s Golden Globe look this year.

How Do Celebrities Design Their Home

At the beginning of the year, you are properly planning to renovate your home in 2020. So we gather some information here on how celebrities design their home. Design for Entertaining “I entertain for a living, and I entertain,” Jennifer Aniston told AD in 2010, on a tour of her Beverly Hills mansion. “The house has a rather glamorous, old-fashioned Hollywood quality,” she said at the time. “I can just imagine the Rat Pack stopping by; someone is playing the piano, and people are laughing in the next room.” Her home was meticulously designed with warm woods, shag rugs, and Asian influences like koi ponds and a cascading chandelier—and Aniston said she wanted the house to feel like “a big hug. People can get so distracted by static, I love the silence here.” Jennifer%2520Aniston.jpg Warm, Inviting just like an oil painting You can click here to read our blog on one of Aniston’s home. Pocket Door and Pink Glass Obsession “I have a pocket door obsession, and a pink glass obsession,” Tyler told AD in 2019, on a tour of her West Village townhouse, which she’s owned since 2001. After a gut renovation, Tyler installed many pocket sliding doors, to allow for privacy or more open, free-flowing spaces. And on the top master floor, she put in a unique skylight. “I decided I wanted to put in this pink tinted glass, and everyone thought I was crazy, but it gives such an amazing warm light to the space.” In the airy master bathroom, she put in sliding pocket doors with pink textured glass panes, combining her two favorite things. Liv20Tyler Pocket doors and pink accents in Liv Tyler’s New York townhouse.

When Jenner took AD on a tour of her new Hidden Hills, California, home in 2019, it was a tranquil, spalike wash of whites, grays and blues, with plenty of plants and contemporary artwork. “My job is so hectic and chaotic. I’m always running a million miles an hour. I wanted my home to feel like a sanctuary, perfectly calm and peaceful,” she explained. “I love a really open floor plan because it makes me feel really zen and relaxed…and colors [like this] just make me feel so calm.” Kris_Jenner.jpg Tranquility was top of mind for Jenner as she designed her space.

A Quick Look Inside The Multimillion-Dollar Homes Of Tom Brady

Today will be Tom Brady’s 8th times to appear in the Super Bowel.  Tom Brady(5-times Super Bowl Champion winner) may be considered king of the football field, but he’s also a big player in the real-estate realm.  Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen—the world’s second-highest paid celebrity couple—have owned property on both coasts of the country, from a solar-paneled mansion with a moat in Los Angeles to a sprawling spread near Boston.

 

Let’s have a quick a look at these multimillion-dollar homes to get a sense of their style.

Los Angeles—simplicity, coziness and eco-conciousness.

Brady and Bündchen sold their brentwood mansion to Dr. Dre in 2014 for $40 million, almost quadruple the $11.75 million they bought it for

Brookline, Massachusetts

In 2014, after selling their 18,298-square-foot Brentwood estate to Dr. Dre for $40 million, the couple returned to the East Coast to custom-design a new compound for $4.5 million. Their Brookline home—albeit about 4,000 square feet smaller than their Los Angeles abode—is no downgrade, however.

TOM-2

Gisele Bundchen shared images of their Chestnut Hill home via Vogue Italia, which will feature Bundchen on its February cover, set to release on Feb. 6. We are really looking forward to them soon.  But here are some home photos from Gisele Bundchen Instagram account:

We can see it is a perfect place to unwind and has  abundant natural light and neutral decor which add texture and richness to the rooms.

New York, New York

 

In August 2016, Brady and Bündchen became the first celebrities to score part of 70 Vestry, a new luxury condo in New York’s Tribeca slated for completion in 2018. The couple will reportedly sell their current Manhattan residence, a $14 million penthouse at One Madison in Flatiron, once they move into their new apartment.

Friday Celebrity Homes

We all know that celebrities’ tastes are a little bit different and they like crazy things for their homes.  This claim, however,  isn’t true all the time.  Some of them actually rather want to have a place where they are able to wind down and have a cup of tea. Crazy or not, here are some of our favorite styles leading by Obama’s.

 

  1. the Obama family is moving to an 8,200-square-foot house they’ll be renting in the exclusive Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, D.C. after they leave the White House.

obamanewhouse-11467925048-rs_4016201223181
Love the soothe gray background wall colors.  The black lacquered cabinet is masculine and anchors the entry.

2. Michael Phelps purchased a stunning 6,010-square-foot home with five bedrooms, 6.5 baths and a pool with views of Camelback Mountain in Arizona..

1472489170-michael-phelps-bathroom.jpg
Love the crisp and fresh  feeling of his master bath. The creamy marble floor and wall tiles with neutral wall color, for sure, guantee a comfy place to relax.

3.  Quite opposite to Marc Jacob’s free-spirited temperament, his Manhattan home is in fact composed and  elegant.

Love this octagon brass modern mirror and creamy silk runner

4.  Marc Jacob’s living room. “I just want to live with things I genuinely love.  But I didn’t want the house to feel like a pristine gallery or a Deco stage set—just something smart, sharp, and comfortable.”

marc-jacobs-living-room.jpg
love this contemporary art

5. At home in SoHo, Arianna Huffington, the author of a new book called “The Sleep Revolution,” sleeps — soundly — in a bedroom decorated in pale, soothing colors.

“What I want is a good sleep.”  I hear you, Arianna!

6.  Fashion designer Monique Lhuiller Bel Air home.

the outdoor space is the truely extension for the house. A soothe and stylish place for family’s activities.

 

 

7.  Fashion designer designer Jenni Kayne’s Lake Taco vocation home.

organic, comfy and Bohemia—this is exactly where I want to spend my vocation.

9. Actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth’s happy place.
