Celebrity Homes: Keri Russell’s Brooklyn Brownstone

Actress Keri Russell, best known for the series from a few years back called Felicity, (I was an heart-stopping fan!), and her husband Shane Deary purchased this 1860s brownstone that needed a ton of work.  Luckily, Deary is the son of a most respected contractor in Martha’s Vineyard, and an avid carpenter himself. The two, who live here with their young son, renovated the Brooklyn find themselves with lovely results.

Above, the living room features linen upholstered chairs by designers Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams. The rug is from Shaw. Tufted ottoman, which I love, is from John Derian Dry Goods.  Chandelier, from Ochre.

The kitchen cabinets are stained in dark expresso and hand built from wood beams. Russell and Deary go American with the best appliances around; Sub-Zero frige and Viking range. Note the cool drop light fixture by Rejuvenation.

Dining area has original pine floors. The wire chairs around the pine table are fro ABC Carpet & Home.

Gorgeous bath room area features a claw foot tub by Victoria+Albert.

Love the simplicity and uniqueness of the master bedroom. Matteo bedding and fabric headboard.  Ikea sheepskin rug. Benjamin Moore paint in Stone Hearth on walls adds a soft touch to bring out the trim. And of course I love the antique chandelier.

Celebrity Kitchens

Ideas for apartment’s kitchen can be found everywhere, and where better than from some celebrities, who have the best decorators design their kitchen spaces. Here, which I couldn’t resist, is Ashton Kutcher’s never used bachelor home which he purchased before meeting his wife, Demi Moore.  Recently he put it back on the market after heavy remodeling by himself and his father.  Photo: Courtesy of Zillow

Ben Stiller and wife, Christina have a great kitchen with high contrast of color, with black and whites and deep warm wood color to balance.  Their Spanish revival mansion is in the Hollywood Hills. Photo: Elle Decor

Decorator Kevin Haley designs for the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Meg Ryan, and Cameron Diaz…so of course his kitchen has to be pretty cool.  We think so. Love the antique style blue stove and the animal print to balance out this clean toned space.  Photo: Everett Fenton Gidley

With celebrity in mind, I came across this movie set kitchen that is just fabulous with a true lived-in feel.  From the movie It’s Complicated, this relaxed kitchen was designed by Jon Hutman.  Photo: Courtesy of Universal Pictures

Finally, celeb Kristen Bell has a fun, comfy and fresh kitchen. Love the white with yellow and orange highlights.  The sage throw carpets add a nice balance. We think the pups are cute too.
