Home Tour: Claudia Schiffer’s Picturesque Tudor Mansion

The story of how supermodel Claudia Schiffer and her husband, film director Matthew Vaughn found their home in England is as unique as the home: they spotted it and fell in love, so they knocked on the front door and asked if the owners would be interested in selling. They agreed and now Claudia and her husband are the proud owners of a historic Tudor-style mansion.

The home is truly breathtaking. It rich with history and beauty, which the family certainly appreciates. They’ve preserved many of the home’s original features while tastefully enhancing it with contemporary elements and the family’s own personal touch. They’ve taken their time building up the decor with items that mean something to them, adding their own page to its colorful history.

10 Charming Kitchens with Exposed Brick

Exposed brick is a classic way to add character to your decor. One of the best spaces in which to use exposed brick is the kitchen. It works well as a backsplash or accent wall and always can be counted on to bring some charm wherever it is used. If you have a “cookie cutter” builder home, for example, adding some exposed brick to the kitchen will give it more of a unique, custom feel.

This look is great for bringing an industrial or rustic flair, but if you pair it with contrasting styles and textures like smooth modern surfaces, you can create something really interesting. You also have options with the brick itself, whether you want it to be limewashed, painted, or natural.

Here are 10 kitchens with exposed brick to give you some ideas and inspiration for your own home.

10 Chic Modern and Minimalist Bedroom Ideas

Your bedroom is one room in the home where relaxation is the most important quality. When you walk in, you want to instantly feel more at ease and for your surroundings to help you unwind after a long day. In the morning, it should help you get the day off to the right start. For some people, this translates to a clean, minimalist design.

Modern minimalist bedrooms focus on a “less is more” philosophy with straight lines, minimal color, and clean surfaces. By keeping everything simple, it’s much easier to relax and clear your head. Simple doesn’t have to mean boring, though. A minimalist bedroom can be stylish and visually compelling.

Here are 10 modern minimalist bedroom ideas to inspire you.

Home Tour: Julianna Margulies’s Elegant & Modern Apartment

Actress Julianna Margulies purchased her New York City apartment in the SoHo district a decade ago when the building was still under construction. It began as a studio apartment and two-bedroom that were combined to create the spacious 2,200 square foot home Julianna now shares with her husband. With tall ceilings and several windows allowing in ample light, the apartment is truly a special find.

The home has been decorated with a minimalist, modern sensibility and Asian influence. The palette is mostly white and gray for a calm, serene atmosphere with some intentional pops of color here and there. Overall, it’s a beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, not to mention the busy life of an actress.
