Inside the rumoured New York apartment of Gisele and Tom Brady

The views from this stunning apartment in New York’s trendy Tribeca neighbourhood are nothing short of amazing. We take a look inside the rumoured New York apartment of Gisele and Tom Brady.

The couple are synonymous with luxury and their previous homes are a good example of that. We have previously looked inside their LA home and their Manhattan Loft, which both show the couples expensive taste. This nearly 5,000 square foot apartment with panoramic views was apparently purchased by the couple for $35.3 million late last year.

The five bedroom five bath home features a large a luxurious outdoor space with panoramic views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. According to Vogue, the apartment complex was designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with the interiors designed by Daniel Romualdez Architects, including rich accents like hand-sawn oak, bronze and marble.

The complex not only features the best in design but the service and common areas are just as impressive. It includes an expansive lobby, a wellness level, and an impressive kids play area designed by award winning firm Roto. There is also a beautifully furnished entertainment area, pool room and cafe.

Celebrity Insider: Model Jasmine Tookes Beverly Hills Home

Jasmine Tookes travels all over the globe for her work as a model but returns to her traditional style home in Beverly Hills to host family and friends.

According to Elle Decor, Tookes worked with Design Works to create a modern home with a farmhouse twist. “I loved that their aesthetic was clean but also comfortable, so I reached out to their founder, Robin Strickler, to redo the interiors,” Tookes says.

The home is full of bright neutral colours and natural textures. She states the home is “Just like my own personal style, my design taste is very feminine and light—blush tones, comfortable silhouettes, and a variety of textures were key for me”.

Her home office is a drastic change from the bright light shades in the rest of her home. She utilises this space as a backdrop for videos and images posted on her social media accounts.

Take a look below at Jasmines modern farmhouse inspired home.

Inside the home of Camilla Freeman-Topper

The creative director of Australia’s women’s-wear label Camilla and Marc, Camilla Freeman-Topper, not only has an eye for fashion, but also an eye for interior design. Today we take a look inside Camilla’s elegant 1930’s Bellevue Hill home in Sydney.

According to Architectural Digest when Camilla saw the home she called her husband home from a business trip early and stated “There was something about it—the late morning light that was sort of seeping through the arches. It was reminiscent of Chateau Marmont, and had moments that felt really special,” she recalls of the way the 1930s six-bedroom house romanced them. “I think people had put it into the too-hard basket, but a project like that for me is extraordinarily exciting.”

The designer took a patient approach rather than jumping in to renovations. Architectural Digest states that the family of five lived in the home as is for a year to get a feel for the house. Camilla states “The ideas and concepts we had when we bought it, before we moved in, changed completely once we lived in it for a while, the rhythm of the house and its energy were really important to understand.”

The renovations took two years, and required some major excavation, like creating an underground garage to make room for their pool that purposefully receives daylight throughout the entire day. She worked together with interior designer, Romaine Alwill of Alwill Interiors to create a space that evoked an “overarching sense of calm and warmth.”

She incorporated pops of colour in each of her kids bathrooms “to be like it’s own box of macarons”, using mint, coral pink for her daughters, and dove grey for her son.

According to news.com.au, the elegantly renovated home was recently sold off market for $17 million.

Celebrity Insider: Lady Gaga’s Understated Malibu Mansion

Lady Gaga has been the centre of attention ever since the release of ‘A Star is Born’ earlier this year.

Her beautiful Malibu home is more in line with her character in the movie than the characters she plays on stage.

Lady Gaga has always made a statement in the media, from her outrageous outfits to her wild onstage performances. It comes as quite a surprise that her Malibu mansion is more understated elegance than loud and eccentric.

Her Malibu mansion overlooks the sought after Zuma Beach. According to Home Beautiful, her home was designed by architect Steve Giannetti and interiors by interior designer Madeline Stuart.

The stunning views are enhanced by incorporating outdoor living spaces. Home Beautiful states, “the sprawling home has a collection of private spaces to gather outside closer to the house.”

While the majority of the house is full of neutral tones and luxurious textiles, she does show a little flare with her bowling alley, complete with neon signs and pink lights.

Celebrity Insider: The late Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld was best known as the creative director of Chanel. He sadly passed away this year at the age of 85, leaving quite the legacy in the design world. He created iconic, show stopping runway sets, so it is no surprise that his living spaces also reflected his iconic style.

We take a look at the contrast in his designs both on the runway and in his home furnishings.

As stated in Vogue, interior designer Andrée Putman collaborated with Lagerfeld to design the interiors of his Monte Carlo and Rome homes. Putman stated, “Each of Karl’s apartments is a perfect and closed universe, but a sincere one.”

His home designs were varied, going from traditional 18th century to Art Deco. His runway sets were also varied, from spacestations and real forests, to supermarkets and Parisian avenues.

Lagerfeld told Vogue of his Art Deco set piece apartment in Paris, “It’s more an atmosphere than anything—it is poesie, a dream.”

As stated in Vogue, ‘Change was the constant in Lagerfeld’s life; it’s no wonder he chose fashion as his milieu. “I don’t want to become attached,” he told Joan Juliet Buck, “and I detach myself when it is time.”’

Scroll down to take a look at his ever changing and evolving style from home to runway…

Inside Victoria Secret supermodel Alessandro Ambrosio’s Santa Monica home

Building and styling a house means something different for everyone. For supermodel Alessandro Ambrosio, home is a sunny haven in Santa Monica, California, that echoes the delights of her native Brazil.

Read on to discover some design tips inspired by Ambrosio’s home.

A Space for family

Plan for your family, including the stage you are currently in, and for the future. For Alessandro it’s a family affair, with her ten-year-old daughter, Anja, and her six-year-old son, Noah. An open plan living area has the advantage of sight lines which will help adults keep an eye on little ones. However, open plan living is a timeless and spacious choice for the future as well.

A. 1

The heart of the home

Clean, white surfaces and wooden floors are kitchen staples that will transcend the test of time. However, keep it from becoming sterile with touches of warmth, such as these bar stools, or some greenery.

A. 2

Make a statement

Don’t be afraid of statement pieces, they act as a focal point of the room and can pull a room together. If a feature is bright and bold, keep the supplementary colours and textiles relatively neutral in complementary tones.

A. 3

A haven for relaxation

The best bedrooms are ones where you want to escape to and relax. Create a calming effect with neutral tones and soft furnishings and fabrics.

A. 4

Inject some personality

Whether it’s a small sculpture you brought when travelling or a fun cushion or throw, adding touches of your own personality and style can bring a home to life. Allesandro completes a somewhat eclectic vibe with personal art pieces, “every picture is special… If I’m going to hang a photograph in my home, it has to mean something.”

A. 5

Keep it simple yet high-quality for a luxe finish that isn’t gaudy, such as this double vanity featuring a patterned mirror.

A. 6

Think about the lifestyle

“The house is very calm and peaceful, but the backyard is all about fun and noise. It has the same joyous feeling as my beach house in Brazil. When it’s winter in California, we head to Florianópolis, where it’s nice and warm,” Ambrosio says. Finish off an outdoor entertainment area with hardwood furniture, and soft textiles in earthy colours for a Brazilian influence.

Celebrity insider: Kelly Wearstler’s Beverly Hills home

It’s a Hollywood mansion with equal measures of old world glamour and contemporary style. That’s no surprise, as this home belongs to style powerhouse Kelly Wearstler.  The American designer and businesswoman has designed homes for celebrities including Cameron Diaz and Gwen Stefani.

When it came to her own home, the 1.3 hectare estate in Beverly Hills, Wearstler was careful to respect the heritage of the home. She introduced signature furniture pieces from her self-named Kelly Wearstler store, including her black leather-and-bronze Elliott chairs and striped Durant sofa, both which highlight the home’s grand proportions.

Outside, the pool area has the feel of a resort: plush lounge chairs, manicured gardens and oversized umbrellas. It’s a home fit for a style queen of the modern era, while still feeling very much old world Hollywood. Take a look…

Celebrity Insider: Nicky Hilton Rothschild’s Manhattan home

The first thing that strikes us about Nicky Hilton and husband James Rothschild’s home is the extensive use of colour. Blues and reds are confidently used throughout the Manhattan penthouse.

The sitting room sees painted red walls paired with a red fabric lounge suite and tens of art-pieces covering the walls, while the drawing room has a blue rug, blue lounge suite and blue de Gournay cherry-blossom wallpaper, again with art-pieces across most of the walls. Both spaces are examples of the ‘more is more’ maximalist approach to design.

Nicky says she gave her husband the lead when it came to the interiors; herself just adding small touches along the way. However, there was one room where Nicky took charge: her daughter’s nursery, which includes Pottery Barn furniture, a colourful felt-ball rug and sky-blue walls.

A home for their two children, Lily-Grace and Teddy Marilyn – the design needed to be practical enough for little ones. While there are many family heirlooms from James’ English family home, no room is ‘off limits’ to the kids.

Stand-out decor pieces include the Holland & Sherry wool-covered Howard sofa – a piece handed down from James’ family and upholstered by the couple, a bright turquoise oval gesso-and-kaolin painting by Elliott Puckette and an antique marble mantelpiece.

Take a look…

Celebrity Insider: Jennifer Aniston’s midcentury LA home

This star’s home is centered around midcentury design principles, but it has a decidedly oriental twist. Actress Jennifer Anniston and her husband Justin Theroux – an actor and screenwriter – purchased the Los Angeles home in 2011.

The property was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones, who was known for his modernist style, with the build completed in 1965. Seeing the home’s promise, but not in love with the existing interiors, Jennifer brought in interior designer Stephen Shadley to help her reimagine the home, while respecting the existing midcentury elements.

Natural materials like wood, stone and bronze form the basis of the home and feel strong and grounded. These are complemented by more detailed and decorative touches, such as antique furniture including a vintage rosewood sideboard, and art from across the centuries.

The midcentury heritage of the home is embraced, with 20th furniture selected, including pieces by Fritz Hansen and Don S. Shoemaker. What makes the home so unique, is the blend of this furniture with finer features such as the hand-painted wallpaper, silk rugs and antique Japanese screens, which add an oriental touch. Then of course, there’s the custom Calacatta marble free-standing bath in the master bathroom, which overlooks a private courtyard and is certainly fit for a star!

When it came to the gardens, Jennifer enlisted Marcello Villano and Anne Attinger to create Asian-inspired zones, with the pool becoming the centrepiece outside and a perfect spot to soak up the surrounds.

Take a look…

Celebrity Insider: Ricky Martin’s Beverly Hills home

He is one of the world’s most-loved entertainers, but he keeps his private life just that: private.

So we’re more than a little excited to catch a glimpse inside Ricky Martin’s new Beverly Hills home.

The pop star moved into the 3,000-square-foot home with his fiancé Jwan Yosef and their nine-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino just a few weeks ago.

Worth $13.5M, the seven-bedroom mansion feels warm, private and creative with strong mid-century influences. That’s no surprise, as the home was designed by acclaimed architect Gregory Ain in 1953.

Working with Nate Berkus on the interiors, the couple’s priorities were comfort and practicality.

With their sons growing up ‘on the road’, the move into this home marks a change in pace for the family.

A few stand-out pieces are the custom concrete table by James de Wulf in the dining room, the leather daybed by BassamFellows, the artwork by Kerry Skarbakka that hangs above the bed and copper pendants that bookmark it by the legendary Tom Dixon.

Take a look inside…
