The celebrities’ sense of style goes way beyond red carpet outfits. Their homes are also affected by that special sense, and not only because of a multi-million dollar profit; after all style is just one of those things that have no price tag. Ok, you can pay for a renowned interior designer, but in the end of the day it is you who makes the call. What makes Australian celebrities’ interior design so different is their capability to create a subtle eclectic decor that is barely visible, yet very appealing. The large Edwardian, Georgian or Victorian mansions are almost always preferred among famous Aussies, but not without exceptions. Now let us peek into the homes of Australia’s darlings to see if that is true.
Who would have thought that Wolverine will live in 1,000 square meters (11,000 square foot) condo in the artsy enclave of New York City? Well, he does and it is decorated as smooth as the man itself. The five bedroom spread with an amazingly extensive view on the Hudson River is simply captivating. As it is not large enough as it is, the apartment has enormous double-height ceilings to add the illusion of even larger space and fascinating swirling staircase. The design is sleek, streamlined with dramatic details. The prevailing colour is white with occasional pops of grey.
The Australia’s most beloved beauty, Miranda Kerr lives in a lavish Malibu mansion, which reflects an idyllic, warm and inviting atmosphere. The shades in the house perfectly enchant the coast outside, combining soft blue, white and gentle beige. Bamboo and wooden pieces and plant life (orchids, dracaenas, etc.) furthermore enhance the naturalistic vibe. A major supporter of organic way of living, the model also has her own garden from where she supplies her kitchen.
The rapper and her NBA star boyfriend, Nick Young bought Selena Gomez’s house in 2014. The six-bedroom estate is located in Tarzana, California, and features basketball court, in-ground pool and a barbecue pit. The interior design is a mixture of classic, rustic and modern decor, with fireplaces, crown moldings, heavy wooden furniture pieces and hardwood floors. One of the eight bathrooms definitely resembles a complete spa and the outdoor space is just as comfy as the indoor, being that it contains plenty of seating, bamboo furniture, cushions and a fire pit.
Nicole Kidman’s home decor is similar to her fashion style – simple and elegant. Her Georgian mansion on her Bunya Hill farm in Australia is so sophisticated that you can imagine the actress lounging around in floaty white dresses the entire day. Most of the furniture and the walls are pretty much neutral, when it comes to colours, but what truly gives them a sense of hospitality and refines, at the same time is the style. Rustic wooden pieces are combined with leather couches, while the wooden library is in charge of the nostalgia. Behind the main house sits a small charming cottage with kitchen cabinetry, pantry and some sitting space.
Although the God of Thunder has put his Malibu mansion on sale to move to his home in Australia, there is no reason not to peek in to see is it actually worth $6.5 million. The spacious Victorian-style estate features green yard space, fabulous interiors, a true chef-worthy kitchen and a gym where Thor works out his muscles. The dominant shades inside the house are white, beige and brown. The modern style (e.g. disco-ball-like chandelier or glass staircase fence, collides with rustic wooden furniture and hardwood flooring). The conclusion: this house is a true catch.
These five Aussies have decorated their homes perfectly, making them not only a reflection of the depth of their wallets, but of their personalities too.
