One of the Most Beautiful Couples Lives in a Beautiful Home (Of Course)

Did you expect their life to be any different?

Model Gisele B√ľndchen is married to one of NFL's biggest stars, New England Patriot's Quarterback, Tom Brady. They recently built a $20 million dollar home in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles. The 22,000 square foot home boasts eight bedrooms, a six-car garage, a lagoon-shaped swimming pool with spa, an elevator, a weight room, and a wine cellar. Do you expect anything less from this celebrity couple?

Their new home is featured in October's issue of Architectural Digest. The home’s walls are a blend of three types of Texas limestone and is surrounded by a koi-stocked moat. Despite its size, the home looks cozy and comfortable and a great place for them to raise their children.

The architecture is by Landry Design Group and Joan Behnke & Associates oversaw the interiors; the landscape design is by the late Dennis Hickok.

Keeping Up With the Kardashian's Style

Recently, there has been a trend towards light and bright interiors. Many of the kitchens you see in magazines, on tv, and around the internet typically feature white cabinets and marble countertops. Even our current kitchen renovation is going in a light and bright direction.

This past weekend, I found myself watching an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and fell in love with the dark, moody interiors in the Kardashian/Jenner home.

The interiors of the Kardashian/Jenner home in Hidden Hills, CA were designed by interior designer, Jeff Andrews of LA. I love the dark greys, blacks, browns, and golds that were used to create a moody, cozy, Hollywood Glam home. Even though you don't think "homey" and "cozy" when you look at the size of their home, I think the color palette makes the home feel more intimate.

Nicole Richie's Welcoming Backyard

Nicole Richie has undergone a huge body, fashion, personality, and lifestyle change since her time on the Simple Life.

She also recently updated the backyard of her home in L.A.'s Laurel Canyon that she shares with her husband, Joel Madden, and their two children. Nicole chose to use a pallate of turquoise, yellow, and black mixed with vintage and industrial pieces. She also utilized a collection of lanterns and lights throughout the yard to create a relaxed yet fun place to hang out day and night.

Stylish Ceiling Lighting

Many homes and apartments seem to have something similar to this "boob" light in bedrooms, hallways, and bathrooms. I always cringe everytime I see them.

Now, so many retailers now offer much more stylish options to light up any room or hallway. They are an easy fix to give your home a quick update while adding personality.
