Inside Gwyneth Paltrow’s Hamptons Home

Gwyneth Paltrow has shared her recent Hamptons home makeover, and we have major home envy.

In her latest Goop newsletter, Paltrow gushes about famous interior designer Windsor Smith who helped redesign the “dead zone” areas in her Amagansett home with her Room In A Box service.

According to Goop: “Despite two attempts on her own to completely redesign the space, Gwyneth’s living room in Amagansett continually stumped her—while it’s spacious and filled with light, it had always been a dead zone in the home, where nobody seemed to spend time.”

Room In A Box allows you to redesign a room by filling out a questionnaire and uploading photos of your space and dream room. After a few weeks, you receive a beautiful box filled with room renderings, floor plans textile swatches and a shopping list of furnishing.

It sounds like great fun – albeit not cheap (a redesigned room can come in at over $25,000, although there are many options to suit budgets and styles).

Paltrow wanted her family room to feel “cosy” yet “elegant”, like “a proper room to entertain in.”

The Room In A Box redesign “pushed the seating to the exterior walls because our families today multitask,” Smith explained, “we can be in the same room, but we’re not necessarily doing the same thing.”

Her music room was also given a stylish makeover, centred around a piano which used to hide in the corner.

Gwyneth loves the result

Isn’t it gorgeous? Paltrow and her family spend their summers in the Hamptons, entertaining bestie Beyonce and Jay Z, but we’d be happy to housesit the other nine months!

Take A Look Inside Cameron Diaz’s Gorgeous NYC Apartment

Cameron Diaz has opened the doors to her New York apartment, inspired by her “innately sexy” personality – and let’s just say, we have major home envy. Take a look at these gorgeous photos…

The actress and her celebrity interior decorator Kelly Wearstler show off her two-bedroom, 222-square-metre West Village prewar apartment in the latest issue of ELLE Decor, and they haven’t scrimped on the luxury.

Diaz, 41, describes her New York home, which she’s owned for several years, as “a bit like living in a silk-lined jewellery box.”

The apartment might not be big but every detail has been given the A-list treatment, with drawers lined in raw black silk, interiors of closets covered in custom wallpaper or bursts of vivid paint and plenty of bling.

“I blame my love of sparkly, shiny things on my Cuban roots,” says Diaz.

From the bedroom with its cool grey tones, to the bathroom gilded in gold and bronze, Wearstler says her celebrity client was very hands-on.

“Cameron taught me to be more sensitive to the hand of fabrics and textiles. She was so involved in every step…[she] has excellent taste and understands how colours work together and why quality pieces make rooms special.”

Home is definitely where the heart is for Diaz. “I’m surrounded by things that mean something to me. That’s what a home is.”
