Gwyneth Paltrow

Gywneth Paltrow's dining table with Swarosvki chandelier and honey leather dining chairs

After browsing the Real Estalker blog a while ago, I was convinced simple and stunningly chic homes by the rich and famous (as opposed to overly gilt and overdone) were a rare thing.

I found one exception: I wrote about Ellen Degeneres‘ interior decoration style to her homes and how simple and chic the spaces were. Now I’ve found someone else: Gwyneth Paltrow (via House and Garden, US).

Her home is simple, chic and utterly desirable. Her pallette is pale but strong punches of colour. I LOVE that dining room! The Tord Boontje blossom chandelier with those light pink accents is picked up by that light pink lacquer sideboard to the right of the photo, it just peeks out. What a space! *head spins with ideas now*

Her master bedroom is simple but very luxuriously detailed. The bedhead is covered in Edelman’s Cashmere Calf in Super White, paired with Wendell Castle’s Muse side tables in white. Everything white is super-white against that blue-grey wallpaper by Wook Kim’s Feu.

I love Apple’s bedroom too. It’s not a “pink bedroom”. It’s a white bedroom with a raspberry-pink bed! What a great pop for the custom canopy bed! The walls, the carpet… all white. The silver side table breaks up the white and pink gorgeously, as well as being a light reflector. The cute pink step ladder is a youthful detail to a surprisingly adult room for a young’un.

Can a kitchen be too big? Paltrow’s kitchen is certainly large… and superbly decorated. Although the cabinets are dark-coloured, the room does not feel small. The use of white marble, white large chandelier, light concrete countertops, off-white backsplash and the high vaulted white ceiling really open up the space!

All in all, this is one very comfortable, relaxing space. Well done, Gwyneth!
