Take a Peek Inside the Homes of Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang
If we refer to celebrity homes, we instantly think at the luxury and the opulence that their residences include. The following lush dwellings belong to Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang. The features their residences include are more than sophisticated and elegant.
The home of the first queen of fashion is truly a museum and a mecca for fashion lovers, including Victoria Beckham. The apartment reveals the designer’s love for the Orient, being decorated in red and gold. The most fabulous detail of all in the house is the crystal chandelier that can be seen from the glamorous spiral staircase. The unique style of Coco Chanel can be spotted in every corner of the house.
His apartment located in Paris in a building built in the 1820, seems to be detached from the future. The dwelling has been decorated in a minimalistic style, with shades of black, white and grey and houses a part of his 400,000 book collection. As Lagerfeld says, his home is a “spaceship for the city where you don’t feel bound by the earth.”
China was his inspiration for decorating his home, despite the fact that the designer is a veritable Italian man. Valentine owns homes all over the world, but this one is the most impressive one. Château de Wideville is a 17th century residence built outside Paris by Louis XIII’s finance minister and later housed Louis XIV’s mistresses. The residence was bought by Valentino in 1995, who recreated here the feel of Shanghai in 1920’s.
The American designer lives in a villa in Bedford, which he decorated in the style of old English estates. The house is every man’s dream due to the fact that it features a garage filled with over 60 cars. It was built in 1919 and boasts a sophisticated interior design with a classic mahogany library and George II side tables.
The designer owns a villa located in LA, which boats floor to ceiling walls that provide view of the Los Angeles basin and the Pacific Ocean. Steve Herman was the one who helped Vera turn her house into her little Zen paradise. The interior design is modern and minimalistic, the most incredible part of the residence being the amazing modern pool and deck. The designer invested over $10 million in the project.
