where opulence takes centre stage
We all have certain indulgences – and whether it’s watching a reality TV series or treating yourself to a delicious bar of Lindt chocolate, it’s all about escapism. Ours have to be celebrity homes. There’s something intriguing about how the rich and famous live. Maybe it’s the scale of the property? Perhaps it’s the lavish use of furniture? Or, perhaps we are just being a tad nosy. Here are our top 10 picks for celebrity homes.
Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber's Contemporary New York Apartment
This exquisite New York apartment was decorated by Ashe + Leandro with the modern interiors spread over two floors. The two successful owners have created a space that suits the cool New York living and we love the effortlessly chic ambience.
Tom Ford's Modern Ranch
It's such a pity Ford decided to sell this ranch. This contemporary building situated far out in the empty terrain of Mexico is a decadent escape.
Lenny Kravitz' former Miami bachelor pad
This modern bachelor pad (or house, in our opinion) is the epitome of rocker cool – thanks to Lenny who claimed this space and made it 'sexy'. If you want to be cool like Lenny, you can now buy this Miami pad for around $25 million.
Elie Saab's Lebanon Retreat
Saab is famous for his couture gowns and intricate use of lace and his luxury fashion brand is always high in demand for red carpet events. His Lebanon retreat is full of charm with breathtaking views. We wish we had a retreat like this.
Valentino's Opulent Roman Palace
This lavish house belongs to Valentino. The clash of prints and decadent ornaments fill this home and one feels caught in a time warp when visiting this space. Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea.
Jennifer Lopez is living it up in Bel Air
Jennifer Lopez is certainly never short on money and this, her newly bought Bel Air home, is perfect for her property portfolio. This family home comes at a hefty price of $40 million.
Kendall Jenner's lush party pad
Kendall Jenner is all over the internet and walking most international catwalks, yet it feels like she's still too young to own her own home. The scary reality is that she owns multiple. This pad is one of her newly bought properties. It's big, modern and suitable for any baby celeb wanting to throw a great party.
Gwyneth Paltrow living like a princess in New York
We expect nothing less from the health guru, Gwyneth Paltrow. Her all white New York apartment exudes tranquility and balance. We can just imagine the star cooking out of her famous cookbook in this very kitchen. However, this house is currently on the market.
The Beckhams go country
The famous Beckhams have decided to reconnect with their British heritage in this gorgeous Gloucester country estate. Expect large gardens, high ceilings and old English glamour.
Clooney's mansion that sold quicker than you could say 'go'
George Clooney has just sold this Mexican mansion he developed alongside Cindy Crawford's husband, Rande Gerber. Whether the property sold because of the developer or the beauty of the home, we don't know, but we just had to list a Clooney creation.
