Unusual Celebrity Homes

Share this post to ....Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on Pinterest

So earlier this week, we took a look at some of the fanciest homes of the rich and famous. These are the homes of the people who’ve made it big in life. With a seemingly endless supply of money, there’s limitless opportunity available when it comes to building or buying a new home or two. Today however, we’re going to be looking at some of the more unusual celebrity homes out there. Let’s take a sneaky peek through the door.

Christina Aguilera – baby’s room
We found this pic on hometone.com – not exactly the decor you’d imagine for a baby’s room is it? That grumpy faced crescent moon would definitely give us nightmares, and we wouldn’t fancy waking up to the strangely happy love cloud (if that’s what it is) on the wall. Nevertheless, you’ve got to admit, that Christina’s baby probably has the most unique child’s bedroom ever.

 

John Travolta’s house
It’s not all that unusual for major celebs to have access to their own plane. What you tend not to expect however, is that they will design their house to look (and act) like a runway. Well, that’s exactly what John Travolta did, according to hubpages.com. You’d definitely hear him before you saw him.

 

 

Pharrell Williams – exhibition home
Not that we’re the sort to jump to conclusions, but this is the last thing we’d expect from Pharrell Williams. His Miami penthouse is adorned with museum-like exhibits, such as this huge canvas of Brian from TV show Family Guy, and the interestingly crafted chair, seen in these pictures from flavorwire.com.

Have you got any more examples of unusual-looking celebrity homes? We’d love to hear about them.

Celebrity Home Lust

Share this post to ....Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPin on Pinterest

If you haven’t already guessed, we love homes. Even more than our love of homes, is having a nosy inside some of the most spectacular homes out there. We’re talking of course about celebrity homes. We know that money isn’t everything in this world, but having plenty of it certainly does seem to guarantee you a stunning abode – just take a look at the following homes we’ve picked out if you don’t believe us. Here is our list of the celebrity homes we’re lusting after right now – get ready for some serious home envy.

Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady
This palatial-sized pad set the celebrity couple back $20 million, according to glamourmagazine.co.uk. The incredible thing about it is that 90 percent of the materials inside the house are recycled. They also chose to install solar panels on the roof and to make the whole thing even more eco-friendly, there’s also a chicken coup so the celebs will never be short of a constant supply of free range eggs. And we’re betting that the stars won’t be short of a house guest or two, especially as there are eight bedrooms. The garage is big enough to hold six cars, there’s a beautiful swimming pool and spa, and there’s even a wine cellar. Should the two ever need alone time, they can have a wing each. And of course, they’ve even dedicated a room to their butler – how kind.

Harry Styles

It must be tough being part of one of the world’s most famous boy bands. Harry Styles is never short of a pretty lady on his arm, not to mention his adoring fans. Oh, and did we say that One Direction are reportedly worth a whopping $100 million? It’s no wonder therefore, that Harry has decided to spread his wings and shell out some of his hard-earned cash on a London mansion. Costing the singer $4.8 million, the mansion boasts four bedrooms (almost enough for a band sleepover), 3.5 bathrooms and a four car garage. Bedecked with the latest mod cons inside and out, there’s also a huge space that would be just perfect for throwing outdoor parties – hint hint Harry. Special thanks go to celebrityhousepictures.com for letting us in on this juicy gossip.

 

 

Celine Dion
If you’ve got some (serious) spare cash burning a hole in your pocket, you may wish to take a look at the celebrity housing market. According to abcnews.go.com, Celine Dion’s home on Jupiter Island, Florida is up for sale, costing the lucky buyer a cool $72.5 million. Imagine waking up to those crystal clear blue waters every morning, and that sunshine – jealous, us?

One thing that links each of these homes together is their palatial size. However, if you’re in need of a little extra space in your home, there is an easier (and cheaper) way to get it than investing in one of the celeb pads above.

A loft conversion comes top of the list in home improvements, guaranteeing you the best rate of return. Econoloft has been in the industry for over 40 years now, making us something of an expert.

Who lives in a house like this?

When it comes to choosing a theme for the interior of your home, you may find yourself stumped. Many people are scared to use bright colours for fear of offending others, and in turn, copy everyone else and keep things neutral. The danger of this however, is that, while attractive from a buyer’s perspective, it can make your home look a little bland and samey – just like everyone else’s. In your home, you make the rules, so if you want to glam up your house, feel free to.

Today we’re taking a look at some celebrity homes – you’ll find plenty of design ideas to recreate in your own property.

Oprah Winfrey
Upon first glance, this kitchen looks rather modest and plain to belong to a big personality like Oprah Winfrey. However, if you look again, there are a few tell-tale signs, such as the solid marble worktop, the chandelier and the ornate stone feature above the oven. According to frontdoor.com, this property is one of several that the star owns, and reportedly also contains a solarium and wine room – jealous, us?

 

 

 

Robin Williams
Villa Sorriso stands between Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Hookedonhouses.net reports that Robin Williams’ home is not just your average property – in addition to the standard rooms, there’s also a library, art and wine cellars, a theatre, an elevator and even a viewing tower that overlooks the valley – pretty impressive huh? We just love this muted yellow shade in the entrance hall; it’s really welcoming and gives it a tranquil, calm feel. The planet lighting is pretty cool too. Using a simple and pale colour palette really opens up a room – soft lighting gives it a warm glow and contrasts wonderfully with the stone steps.

 

 

Kanye West
From the outside (top left pic), Kanye West’s home looks, well, dull. Inside however is a different story completely. Look how lavish his bedroom is – surely all of those cushions are Kim’s influence? Check out the size of that television screen – it’s like having your own personal cinema! A comfortable squashy sofa, warm rug and low coffee table add the perfect finishing touches. Nydailynews.com also tells us that he has a built in computer in every room – there’d be no squabbling over whose turn it is in that house.

While each celeb has chosen a completely different approach to their home décor, one thing they all have in common is space, and huge amounts of it. If you’re lacking space in your home, you may wish to consider having a loft conversion.
