For those of you that didn’t already know, the ChicTip team is fanatical about Mid-century architecture and design. Although Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s home was an exclusive for Architectural Digest back in 2007, we thought to cover it for you as a reminder of how beautiful the home is. Originally, AD didn’t make the article available online, so many people would have missed it, we’ll take you through it now as we believe this is an important piece of property from the California mid-century scene. I’ve gathered images from several sources but, as I believe all but one are likely exclusively his, we’re going to credit the photography to Erhard Pfeiffer.
The picture above is believed to be from the real estate listing prior to Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher owning and renovating the property but, as the external architectural elements from this view were not touched in the renovation, it provides an excellent look at the mid-century style of their home. During the renovation, additions were made to this 1957 home to increase the number of bedrooms and living areas for Demi’s children.
The master bedroom is, in our opinion, the outstanding room in the house. While large windows throughout fill the home with light and show the beautiful, almost botanical, gardens, the master bedroom has a special feel to it. The arched ceiling, reflecting the natural light’s luminosity, the centerpiece fireplace, the neutral tones throughout all provide warmth and texture to balance the room’s grandeur and provide a feeling of calm and relaxation.
The home’s interior was designed with input from designer Brad Dunning, which followed Demi’s desire to maintain the integrity of the home wherever possible. We’ve featured the best of the other imagery available and hope you enjoy them as a rare glimpse into their beautiful home.
