I always find it so interesting seeing celebrity homes - not only because it's fun to see what styles they're drawn to, but also to see what decorating with a nearly unlimited budget can look like :) I recently came across photos of Michael C. Hall's home renovation that was featured in the October issue of Lonny, and was blown away by the transformation. The whole house is light + airy (though it definitely didn't start off that way!), and is such a wonderful mix of modern + earthy, with an overall masculine aesthetic that perfectly suits a bachelorpad. Here are some of my favorite shots of the home:
This bathroom is perfection. I love that the custom vanity is more a great piece of furniture than a sink console, and how the dark gray pairs with the lighter gray subway tile, minimal mirrors, and industrial lighting. The somewhat worn blue antique rug contrasts nicely with the more modern finishes, too.
Love how open + bright the dining room is, and again, how the rustic finish of the farmhouse table contrasts with the shiny modern pendants. It's such a great mix of new + old.
How amazing is that silver and gold herringbone console above? Total showstopper piece.
The living room is so cozy-looking, and though it's pretty neutral in color, all of the textures keep it from being boring. From the soft Beni rug, to the aged leather pieces, to the live edge burl-wood coffee table, the finishes and textures keep the space interesting and layered.
The house is full of interesting thrifted objects and vintage goods that Michael C. Hall has collected over time, and this vignette is jut one example of that. I love the hanging captains mirror, too.
Perhaps the most dramatic transformation of the renovation was the kitchen. It started off really closed-in, dark, and covered in floor-to-ceiling yellow tile... but is so open and airy now!
The exterior is a 1920's Spanish style home, which are pretty common in southern California. I love that the interiors aren't exactly decorated in that style, yet they don't clash with it either.
All around, a beautiful home for a hollywood bachelor!
