Ah, to be rich and famous. What couldn’t you do with practically unlimited funds with which to decorate? So it’s almost surprising, then, when a celebrity home turns out to be a modern, welcoming space as opposed to an over-the-top spectacle (we’re looking at you, Christina Aguilera). At once chic and masculine, Jennifer Aniston’s home in Beverly Hills, which appeared in Architectural Digest earlier this year, is a surprising mix of Old Hollywood glam, mid-century modern, retro and Asian influences.
I love the use of scale in the sitting room — the oversized pendant light, enormous fireplace and pool vista create a dramatic space.
I’m really impressed with how well the house blends in with the surrounding property, too. The extensive use of wood and stone, both inside and outside, make the house seem more organic than manmade. And who wouldn’t love to eat breakfast with this view?
By far, my favourite space in Jennifer Aniston’s house has to be the bedroom. I love the calm vibe of the pale palette and natural materials. I’m lusting after the carpet, but I can’t imagine using it in my space; between the cats and my mountain biking boyfriend, it would be destroyed in a day.
And finally, because it’s just not Hollywood without an enormous pool…
(Here's some more pool photos, if that's not enough of a virtual escape!)
