Celebrity Insider: Meghan Markle’s fashionista Toronto Home

Californian-born Meghan Markle rose to fame thanks to her role in hit America TV series, Suits. She has since returned to the spotlight due to her romantic relationship with none other than Prince Harry of Wales. The 35-year old actress and humanitarian is currently based in Toronto and regularly shares vignettes of her home via her Instagram account.

We could be mistaken for thinking Markle works in the fashion industry: her tables decorated with fashion books and a closet solely for her impressive heel collection. Complementing most of these stacks of books are vases of fresh flowers – some even picked from her own garden.

Markle also appreciates fine art, with a nude, watercolour Inslee Fariss piece hanging above the bed and a Gray Malin print in her living room. Throughout the home, white is the dominant colour used for much of the decor and furniture, but touches of rustic timber furniture provide texture and character… as do her two adopted dogs! Take a look…

Celebrity Insider: Jennifer Lopez’s Los Angeles home

When one of the world’s biggest celebrities puts their house on the market, the reaction from many is pure intrigue of what’s inside. This curiosity grows even larger when the home belongs to the likes of superstar Jennifer Lopez.

Her 17,000-square-foot estate in Los Angeles’s Hidden Hills neighbourhood is on the market for $14.5 million. The singer, actress and dancer moved into the home in 2010 after allegedly purchasing it for $8.2 million with her ex-husband Marc Anthony.

The sprawling estate has nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, two ‘half bathrooms’, a wet bar, wine cellar and most importantly; a recording studio.

The interior design is Hamptons-esque with coastal tones, upholstered furniture and a pared-back sophistication.

A black Agar-style oven takes centre-stage in the kitchen and is softened with pastel blue cupboards, which carry through to the dining room.

Above the dining table sits an over-sized beaded pendant light which adds a touch of modern ‘bling’ and playfulness to the space.

The colour peach swathes the bedroom from the walls to curtains and accessories in contrast to the more masculine wine-toned wood-paneled bar.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Jennifer Lopez’s home without something extravagant and show-stopping. The floor-length ballgown on show does this perfectly.
