The July/August 2011 issue of Elle Decor features Courtney Cox's new home in Malibu. High on a hillside it provides views of the ocean from many angles. It's not just a home, but includes a tennis house, screening space and guest cottages.
The interiors are lovely and there are many glass large windows and glass doors to maximize the amazing views. As beautiful as the inside it, I'm really taken with the multiple outdoor spaces.
This space was just made for after dinner chatting, laughing, singing or relaxing with friends. Wouldn't be a bad spot to whip up some S'mores either. I can just imagine a peaceful, fun Sunday night with friends and family.
There are so many little nooks for conversations, tea, book reading or naps. You can read the entire Elle Decor article here. See the slideshow here. You can also see a in-process slide show here.
So what do you see that inspires you? Which rooms do you love best? It's easy to look at celebrity homes and just feel jealous. But even better is looking and seeing what you could bring to your own home or your own future home. There are always things that you could adapt and enjoy. I want lots of great outdoor spaces. I'm good with a family simple home, but some great space to be out of doors sounds heavenly to me.
Have a fantastic day. Do something today that makes you proud of you! Cheers!
