Everyone seems to have an opinion about Oscar-winning actress and Goop proprietor Gwyneth Paltrow. Some find her hoighty and pretentious (to say the least, she named her kids Apple and Moses), while others admire her impeccable fashion sense and wide-ranging talents (in addition to an Academy Award, she's also won an Emmy, a Golden Globe and been nominated for a Grammy). I personally think she's great — the Royal Tenenbaums and Shakespeare in Love are two of my favourite films. I also think she has great taste in real estate, after recently purchasing a $10.5-million Brentwood mansion with her husband, Coldplay singer Chris Martin. Let's take a look at the sumptuous, Windsor Smith-designed place.

The 8,000-square-foot, six-bedroom house might be in L.A., but it has a refined, old world feel. The entryway is relaxed but sophisticated with a soft grey palette.

No doubt, Paltrow will use the expansive kitchen to test recipes for her next cookbook. A luxurious marble backsplash contrasts the rustic, wood plank floor.

Earth tones create a serene, peaceful vibe in the principal bedroom.

Enjoy recipes from Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook, My Father's Daughter.
