I Just Can't Help Myself...

"My BFF" & her newly renovated London townhouse(s) is featured in the September issue of Elle Decor... (DYING to get my copy!!)  

From -- "Act, cook, write, sing: Gwyneth Paltrow famously loves to do it all. So it comes as no surprise to hear that she is also a serious design buff. Last year, she and her husband, rocker Chris Martin of the band Coldplay, combined two London townhouses with the help of his architect brother, Al Martin. They restored the period details and added such funky touches as a rumpus room for the couple’s two children and a skull-and-crossbones motif on the library’s mantel. Paltrow—whose lifestyle website GOOP will release iPad and iPhone apps this fall—may one day design her own furniture and tabletop collections. “That’s kind of the dream,” she says. “Maybe when the kids are older.” 

Of course I devoured her list of favorites & compiled for future reference...

1. DeGournay Wallpaper

2. Seasonal flowers - she prefers single-variety arrangements—peonies, hydrangeas, and white lilies—casually arranged.

3. Darren Almond's Photography

4. Charles Edwards Star Lanterns

5. Antonio Lupi Baia Tub

6. Juxtaposed: "Religion Shelf" - built-in slots that hold holy books all at the same level (which is how she says she likes to think about religion... love that!)
 7. Clothbound Penguin Classics

8. YUBZ Retro Handset - cuts down on cellphone radiation
