INSIDE GWYNETH PALTROW’S HOME
The revival Spanish-style home of Gywneth Paltrow in Montecito has a design scheme that deftly bridges the classical and the contemporary.
With European inspiration, the home has Mediterranean-like finely crafted architectural details. High ceilings, arcs, a long, lean monolithic structure, laid out largely on one floor, with a shingled roof and stone walls that approximate the irregular rhythms and timeworn texture of dry-stack construction. Sunlight floods the space.
Craft and materiality are essential in establishing the home’s soulful spirit, as well as form, flow, proportion, color, and texture. Roman and Williams paid off attention to these elements in order to create an airy yet cozy home.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s modern Spanish-style home with a courtyard in Montecito is crafted to be a tranquil retreat to her family. An outdoor pool and a sybaritic home spa were designed to be relaxation spaces. The beauty and the tailoring of the areas are the result of Roman and Williams’ effort to deliver a mindful home that nurtures body, soul, and mind.
With a Parisian flair, the interior decor is as much thoughtful as the architecture of Gwyneth Paltrow’s home. Even though Paltrow intended to decorate her home by herself, the actress soon realized that that were missing pieces that only a professional could bring together. Her choice was made on Brigette Romanek.
Like the architecture, the decor eludes antiquated definitions of traditional and contemporary. The interior design is a tango between old and new, soft and hard, delicate and muscular, to the sound of understated colors, organic textures, and strong, simple forms.
Romanek was Paltrow’s first choice not only because of their two decades of friendship but also for the first contemporary touch that Brigitte Romanek would put into Gwyneth Paltrow’s restful home.
The sandy color palette is essential to optimize the natural light indoors. Nevertheless, it plays a main role in setting a soothing, peaceful, atmosphere.
Brigette Romanek’s expertise is showcased in some dramatic moments that undeniably mark out the contemporary notes of Gwyneth Paltrow’s home.
