Decorate Like the Stars: Home Decor Inspiration from Design-Conscious Celebrities
Posted on 04 Mar 2020
Buying a Reunion home can bring out the interior decorator in all of us, with empty spaces and plain walls serving as blank canvases upon which we can splash our unique styles and personalities. We often look to celebrities for inspiration — given their top-notch taste and larger-than-life pocketbooks — but interior designers and architects aren’t within everyone’s budget. Luckily, some celebrities invite us to take a look inside their homes and mimic their style — here are several stunning ideas to get you excited about decorating your new home at Reunion.
Oprah Winfrey’s Spanish Revival
Originally purchased from actor Jeff Bridges, Winfrey scored this unbelievable Montecito, California estate in 2019. Known for her impressive real estate portfolio, she added a charming two-bed/three-bath Spanish Revival-style home to her collection. Perfectly-manicured landscaping adds curb appeal while high ceilings, French doors, and original windows lend warmth and character. Wood cabinets and quartz countertops bring a classic combination of style and charm to the kitchen — Reunion offers open-concept floorplans that allow you to easily move from the kitchen to dining area, similar to Winfrey’s cozy cottage style. Through beautiful glass doors Winfrey’s home boasts lush backyard gardens that include a fireplace and patio seating — perfect for outdoor living and entertaining. Luckily, Reunion’s thoughtfully-designed homes feature low-maintenance outdoor areas — eliminating the need for an Oprah-level professional gardener.
Lenny Kravitz’s Brazillian BoHo Retreat
Rock star, actor, producer — design mogul? Kravitz’s coffee plantation turned South American oasis is full of swoon-worthy decor. Capturing the spirit of Brazil might be easier than you think — search for reclaimed wooden coffee tables or add a dark Brazil nut stain to your original furniture. Add fun swivel chairs to make it easy to turn your attention to the goings-on during your dinner party. Bold floor-to-ceiling murals that stretch from room-to-room add drama and height to each space by drawing the eye upward. Colorful bedding brightens up the bedrooms while earth-toned furniture creates a relaxing, warm feeling in larger spaces. You can easily incorporate Kravitz’s choice of bold wooden features and bright colors into your Reunion home in colorful Colorado!
Bobby Berk’s Home Office
In only a few days, Queer Eye star and design guru Bobby Berk transforms the homes of those lacking the elusive homey touch. As such a hard worker, Berk focuses on one of his favorite rooms in the house — his home office. He suggests making your external view the focal point of the room: Take advantage of the windows, as they will serve as artwork that can keep you inspired and refreshed during your work day. Try replacing your clunky desk with a floating one to open up your intimate space. Paper documents will inevitably build up, so add a gorgeous credenza — it’s perfect for tucking away unsightly piles of paper. Lastly, a dramatic area rug under your desk can make your space extra chic — and give you something to squish your toes in while you work.
Mark Consuelos & Kelly Ripa’s Colorado Cabin
It’s easy to understand why celebrities flock to Colorado — we’re laid-back and stylish, and our homes are no different. Similar to Reunion’s many floorplans, the Consuelos-Ripa classic Telluride hideaway features an eat-in kitchen island — perfect for gathering your family for a snack or cocktail. Incorporate pops of your favorite colors and encourage the eye to look outside toward our one-of-a-kind Colorado scenery. Like many locals, this family believes the party is on the patio. Surrounded by Aspen trees and rolling foothills, extend your home’s included open-concept floorplan to your deck. Under the stars, you’ll simply glide from the dining table to the firepit in a matter of steps.
Diane Keaton’s Industrial Farmhouse
This mature and minimalist home is a flawless pairing of industrial design and farmhouse character. Keaton’s simple color palette — warm espresso matched with stark black and white — creates a daring yet comforting combination. Your community is filled with charming reminders of Colorado’s industrial boom — like our many railroads and urban warehouse districts — to inspire you to make this concept your own. When opting for a refined and grown-up look, vintage light fixtures can add a level of sophistication sure to impress your guests. Show off your globe-trotting, bookworm side by incorporating large bookcases — they’re a striking way to display your personal library, family photos, and trinkets collected from vacations past.
At Reunion, you don’t have to spend a fortune to live like the stars. Customizable floorplans, low-maintenance exteriors, and modern designs encourage you to create an exquisite look without breaking the bank.
