Chrissy Teigen and John Legend recently listed their 0.86-acre property. This amazing 5-bedroom home was taken off the market by an anonymous buyer almost as soon as it was listed, and for good reason too! The power couple’s $24 million home comes with large floor-to-ceiling windows, rich natural textures, exotic finishes, and our personal favorite – a completely awe-inspiring grand piano for a serenade from the multi-award-winning singer, John Legend.
This modern home which was originally constructed in 1966, is finished in lightly textured dark grey exterior paint on the exterior. The driving way is warmly lit by modern exterior lighting and flanked by lush green trees.
This builds high expectations of what to expect in this lovely home. A brief tour around the interior of this magnificent home has inspired 5 design lessons.
High ceilings can dramatically transform a space:
A recurrent feature in Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s 8,520 square feet former home is high dramatic ceilings, and it’s hard not to love it! In the living room, you are met with a contemporary feel ceiling-high windows and drapery alongside select furniture pieces that greatly complement the design style. One thing that easily stands out is the modern fireplace/tv wall that gives the visual effect of running the entire length of the wall. But in actuality, this beauty is terminated halfway and finished off by a continuous vintage metallic finish wall facade.
The interior spaces are awash with natural lighting:
A healthy supply of natural lighting within a space helps to mentally connect with nature and can visually warm the space to sunlight. The large open windows in this home do just that. Even better, these windows overlook Beverly Hills, giving the most enthralling views.
Grand is better:
It is hard to miss the famous purple grand piano once you are inside this beautiful home. If you observe, the furniture and decor pieces in this home play with scale. This is because the space in itself is large, thus decor elements of choice have to reflect this grandness to give an elaborately regal feel within the interior. The grand piano, the furniture, the patterned ceiling finish, as well as the drapery, all reflect this grand scale in this modern design.
Persian rugs add visual interest:
Not only do rugs define a space, but they also add visual character to any modern space. In the master bedroom, the Persian rug is visually captivating and complemented beautifully by round contemporary pendant light as well as the metallic feature wall finish.
The thrill is in the details:
The beauty of a space is in the attention to details. The brass bathroom hardware in the bathrooms elegantly complement the marble vanity tops and modern textured wall finishes.
