Something very voyeuristic about sneaking peaks inside the homes of celebs but I do love a good celebrity home
Back in early 2017, Jessica Alba purchased a Los Angeles mansion for $10 million. When speaking to Realtor.com, the listing agent described the house as “elegant yet comfortable.” But that doesn’t even begin to illustrate this mansion. The nearly 9,000-square-foot house features seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms on a 1.85-acre property. Oh, and there’s also a detached guest house. As the property listing highlighted, the main house offers Alba, her husband Cash Warren, and their three children “canyon [and] ocean views.”
The couple purchased the home from film producer and Hollywood executive Mike Medavoy, and, although it was obviously already a stunning mansion, Alba set about customizing the home to her taste. Once the extensive renovations were complete, the Fantastic Four actress gave Architectural Digest an exclusive tour of her and her family’s dream house. Spoiler: it’s changed a lot. Here’s what the inside — and outside — of Jessica Alba’s home looks like today.
Although the Beverly Hills mansion was move-in ready when Jessica Alba purchased it at the outset of 2017, she and her family waited to move in until the renovations were complete. “We moved in about seven months ago,” Alba confirmed to Architectural Digest in May 2019, “and the house didn’t look anything like this.” Nevertheless, Alba was interested in purchasing the property as it was. “I thought, I have an imagination and I know what I want. I walked in and knew within 20 minutes, even though [the previous owners’ style] wasn’t our vibe, this was exactly what we were looking for,” she told the publication.
Alba looked to Pinterest for ideas on how to redecorate the space and later turned to her famous friends. Alba explained, “[Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi would] have us over for holiday parties, and we’d leave and say to each other, ‘Their house is so sick!'” Once Alba purchased the home, DeGeneres kindly hooked up Alba with her interior designers, Kathleen and Tommy Clements of Clements Design.
Renovating the mansion was extensive — more extensive than Jessica Alba expected. Speaking with Architectural Digest, Alba explained, “I was like, ‘I’m pretty much fine with everything; let’s just paint it!’ And then all of a sudden we walked into the house, and it had been stripped down to the studs. I mean, there were literally no walls!” Over the course of a year and a half, the floor plan was expanded and rearranged to create a more open-concept space.
One of the most extensive changes made in Jessica Alba’s home is actually evident immediately upon stepping inside. “Here in the foyer, I think this is one of the biggest differences,” Alba told the publication. She continued, saying, “When we moved in, [Clements Design] wanted to streamline the staircase and create this, like, beautiful solid architectural piece.” And that’s just what they did. As the original listing photos demonstrate, the previous staircase featured traditional banisters and the flooring was a white-and-black checkered tile. The renovated foyer is much more modern.
When giving Architectural Digest a tour of what she labeled her family’s “more formal sitting area/living room,” Jessica Alba explained her desire to incorporate “as many natural materials as possible.” When speaking to the publication, interior designer Tommy Clements revealed that Alba was especially drawn to reclaimed wood and natural fibers, which he admitted “didn’t exactly come as a surprise since her company is based entirely on thoughtfully produced, safe products.”
Additionally, Alba made sure the home would be “kid-friendly.” Yes, you can even peep a baby gate and slipcovered sofas. The actress further revealed that the focal point of the living room, the marble fireplace, was built specifically to hang the kids’ Christmas stockings on.
Throughout the entirety of Jessica Alba’s home, you’ll notice a blend a French country with some Parisian flair. This is perhaps most evident in the living room. She noted, “I really wanted there to be an old world kind of French vibe mixed with a modern French apartment and if you just, like, slammed those together, what would you get?” You’d get one stunning space, that’s for sure.
While hallways aren’t generally the most exciting areas in a home, Jessica Alba found a way to make the transitional space leading to the upstairs of her house an exceptionally meaningful display. “The only thing we took from the other house was our family — and not just the family that you see here, but the family on our wall,” Alba told Architectural Digest, leading the tour to a large gallery wall.
“My husband’s African American and white, and I’m Mexican and white,” the actress explained. “So, this wall is just a combination of grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, great aunties, and uncles, and cousins.” While looking over the dozens of old photographs alongside her children, Alba added, “We just think that it’s important for them to see themselves and see where they came from.”
Through episodes of Fixer Upper, fans were able to see some key elements of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ kitchen: white subway tile, concrete countertops, and floating wooden shelves. While you’ve likely noticed the beautiful island, Joanna revealed to HGTV Magazine (via Today) that the piece is actually an antique. “I probably stalked that thing for two years,” she revealed. She found the large cabinet in an antique store in the family’s town of Waco, Texas. When putting it in their kitchen, the couple decided to paint it white, matching the rest of the kitchen, and fit it with an oversized countertop.
In an interview with HGTV, Joanna explained her love of the space, saying, “No matter how much is going on, I don’t feel overwhelmed because the palette is very clean and fresh.” She added, “I love the farmhouse sink, and I love looking out the window at the animals and cows while I work.”
