Rachel Zoe’s got her work cut out for her in her new house


She sure has some styling to do! Celebrity fashion designer and stylist Rachel Zoe bought a new house, and boy does it need work!! A simple paint job is not going to cut it. This needs a lot of TLC, eye for detail and money… lots of money. And she had such a nice house!

Bloom – Baby products that are both functional and stylish!


A recent study in the Netherlands shows that 82% of parents are annoyed by the sheer inexhaustible amount of necessary baby-products that fill the house with the arrival of a baby. Most of the time these products are made of sensible plastics that are produced to last forever, but not to look pretty. Especially those parents who spent a lot of time decorating their home to a certain standard.

Funny enough, especially the dads out there would like to see products that are both functional and appealing. 50% of them say they think there is room for improvement there. Bloom, a company founded by 4 fathers, agrees. They design baby products that target trend- and style-conscious parents with a range of furniture that adheres to both quality and an attractive package. The products have been very popular in the USA and Canada for quite some time now. Many Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, the Kardashians and Orlando Bloom (what’s in a name) are fans. But the products are taking other parts of the world by storm too.

Ginnifer Goodwin’s Hollywood Home in Elle Magazine


She might not be a household name yet, but she must be doing something right to afford a pied-a-terre in Whitley Heights. This small enclave nestled between the Hollywood Hills was once home to Charlie Chaplin. Ginnifer recently opened her doors to a team of Elle Magazine to show her home. The house is quite modest, and the views are nothing to boast about, but it sure looks very charming and inviting. I have always been a big fan of Hollywood Regency style. In this case it might be a bit too girly for my liking, but nonetheless; chapeau! Design firm Nickey Kehoe was responsible for the decorating.

Ginnifer Goodwin’s living room. I like the ottoman and Picasso-esque painting. I would have added a bit more contrast on the fire-place as the shape sort of asks for it.

Have a yabbadabbadoo time in this house in Malibu!


Had to post this. It’s been done before for sure, or at least contemplated, and I still think the architects of Maison Bulles in Théoule-sur-Mer France were inspired by the Flinstones, or possibly the Jetsons. But never have I seen a house so in keep with the theme as this one. It’s in Malibu, off course it is. TV host Dick Clark  decided to put it on the market shortly before his death in April this year. My guess is that the asking price of ‘only’ $3,500,000 is because it is not everybody’s taste. Cause if it is, and you’re rich, than the house with its magical ocean views is yours for a price well under what the neighbours paid!

Harrison Ford puts his Hollywood manse on the market


Hollywood buff Harrison Ford and his much younger (and thinner) wife Calista Flockhart, are selling their Hollywood home. The Country Colonial, designed by Beverly Hills favourite Gerard Colcord, was bought by Mr Ford and his ex-wife in 1983. I guess La Flockhart wanted to get rid of all the bad ex-wife vibes that lingered in the place, but I bet Mr Ford is sadly saying his goodbyes as the place is wonderful.

The house has a lot of charm and most likely he designed and fitted some of the many clever shelves and units. After all, before he went into acting, Harrison Ford was a carpenter and cabinet-maker. It was built in the 1950’s but looks as if it is much older and oozes character! And the views of Los Angeles are breath-taking. With al that smog maybe literally….

The actor and the old Mrs Ford bought the 7000+ square feet (700 m2) for around $1.000.000 which is peanuts now.  The house is on the market for $8.295.000 which means a healthy profit is in the cards. The happy couple need some extra cash as their new home has set them back $12.650.000…..

Frances Bean Cobain all grown up…..


Frances Bean, daughter of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and singer/actress/tabloid filler Courtney Love, grew up. Off course she did, but somehow it shock me to realize she is old enough to buy a house! And a nice one might I add. When her father killed himself in 1994, a trust fund was set up for her to ensure financial security. With Nirvana being one of the best-selling bands of all time, the dough surely rolled in last year when she turned 18. The house she bought is modest, both in size and price, but nice enough for a 19-year-old!

The house is a 1930’s Spanish style home with 3.350 square feet, 4 bedrooms and 3,5 baths in a quiet canyon in the Hollywood Hills. Mrs Bean reportedly paid $1,825,000 for it. It retains many of the original architectural and decorative details such as hand-forged iron work, colorful decorative tiles, numerous stained and leaded glass windows, hand-stenciled wood beams, and vintage light fixtures and hardware. I absolutely love it to be honest.

Charlie Sheen’s old home


Running behind a bit as it was on the market back in 2009, but I found these pics of Charlie Sheen’s former home on Hooked on Houses. I really like the decor bar the dining room chairs. Those I do NOT like. Love the study however. Very inspiring as I am currently researching a possible redecorating of my own study.

Charlie Sheen's old home

Love the vaulted ceiling with the beams!

Yep, pretty much perfect sitting room.....

Not a big fan of the chairs, to say the least...

I absolutely love this study.....

This house looks like it was decorated by Jon Hutman and Beth Rubino who team up frequently to style the movies of Nancy Meyer.
