Home Tour: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s Vibrant Beverly Hills Estate

Musicians Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have always been known for their larger than life style, Gwen especially, so it’s no surprise that the mansion the couple shared in Beverly Hills reflects that. Celebrity interior designer Kelly Wearstler incorporated bold colors, graphic patterns, and a touch of Hollywood Regency flair to translate their unique style into a spectacular home.

When the couple split up, they put the home on the market for a whopping $35 million and gave all of us the opportunity to take a peek inside at the opulent estate. The only thing more spectacular than the interior is the exterior, which overlooks breathtaking views.

Enjoy this one-of-a-kind home tour courtesy of Pop Sugar.

Decorating Ideas That Are Southwestern Chic

One of my favorite design styles that has seen a surge in popularity recently is modern southwestern decor. This look combines the clean, streamlined elements of modern design with the cool, fun character of desert style. The latter is known for its recognizable patterns, subdued colors, and natural textures. The two styles are perfectly paired to create a new style that is nothing short of inspiring.

What I like best about the modern southwestern style is how relaxed and casual it is. There is no fuss with this design. You can make it as minimalist or maximalist as you please because the look is so easy and versatile. It’s really all about infusing your own personality into it. There is something wonderfully expressive about southwestern decorating.

Another great thing about this style is how inclusive of nature it is. Natural woods and greenery are two big components in making this look come alive in your home.

Here are 10 inspiring examples of spaces that captured the southwestern flair perfectly.

10 Luxury Closets & Dressing Rooms with Islands

Most of us have an idea of what our dream closet would look like. If you’re anything like me, you love pinning luxury closet ideas on Pinterest and daydreaming about all the amazing organization and beautiful design. One of my favorite things about many luxury closets are the addition of an island.

Closet islands offer a lot of extra storage in the form of drawers or shelves for things like jewelry and accessories. They also give you a surface on which you can fold clothes, lay out options for the day, or even to display your jewelry or other decor. While not every walk-in closet is large enough to accommodate an island, they don’t actually have to be gigantic for one, either. Even a small island in the closet can bring some character and extra storage to the space.

You can take a lot of other great ideas from luxury closets, too. You can play with the color of your shelving or cabinets, switch out the hardware to something more glamorous, do an eye-catching accent on the ceiling, or even hang a chandelier as your light fixture. Your closet doesn’t have to be huge to be luxurious.

Here are 10 luxury closets to inspire you to help you get your a little closer to your dream.

Home Tour: Keira Knightley’s Modern Tribeca Apartment

Actress Keira Knightley recently sold her apartment in the TriBeCa neighborhood for $6 million and whoever scooped it up now owns one of the most charming homes in Manhattan. The apartment features two floors, a spiral staircase, 23-foot ceilings, a large private patio, and industrial touches against warm wood accents that make this home a one-of-a-kind.

Each space feels very open thanks to the abundant natural light, spacious layout, and high ceilings. Most of the walls are white, adding to the light and airy concept, while wood and brick warm it up and give it some character. A minimalist sensibility lends a zen-like quality which creates an interesting contrast against some of the rough accents.

Enjoy the tour of this truly unique apartment courtesy of Harper’s Bazaar.
