If the acting thing hadn't worked out for Jennifer Aniston, she may have been helping you pick out wallpapers for your sprawling Los Angeles estate. "If I wasn’t an actress, I’d want to be a designer. I love the process [of renovating homes]," the actress told Architectural Digest. “There’s something about picking out fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul.”
As it turns out, Aniston has a few too many movies on her plate to commit to design full time. But, she did pour her heart, soul, and design prowess into designing the 1965 Bel Air abode she shares with hubby Justin Theroux. (Neighbors: J-Lo and A-Rod.) And, she let the home-design magazine take a peek around for a feature in its March issue.
Here are some things about the actress you might not have known. First, her home office has a very imposing desk. "I feel extremely powerful when I sit at that desk — so powerful, in fact, that I’m almost never there," Aniston told AD. (Instead, she prefers to work at her "cozy" kitchen table.)
Also, the actress doesn't really gravitate toward things that are sleek, chic, and sterile. "Sexy is important, but comfort is essential," is how Aniston describes her aesthetic. As such, her home boasts a Polar Bear sofa that's always ready for a relaxing sinking-in.
And then, there's the outside. Aniston and Theroux's home has a series of interconnected outdoor rooms, Asian-inspired gardens, and terraces.
And the views aren't bad, either: "Every corner you turn, you have an experience. Everywhere you look, you get a vista. We worked very hard to get that flow right,” Aniston said.
Wondering what a party is like at the couple's plush digs? We hope you like comfort foods! "We put out a mean taco bar, and the chili’s pretty good in the colder months,” the actress says.
Take a peek at incredibly enviable photos of Jennifer Aniston's Bel Air home. And save your appetite for that chili-night invite (that will never come).
