Heather Dubrow has been very generous about giving video tours of different parts of her 22,000-square-foot mansion that she and husband Terry Dubrow call "Dubrow Chateau," but there are lots of private spaces that she chose not to show — until now!
For her most recent Heather’s Closet YouTube tour, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum reveals a super sexy room in the basement that she retreats to when she's looking for the ultimate in privacy. We already feel closer to her knowing this side of her that we just haven't seen before. Are you ready to take a look?
"I call it the music room," she says in the video. "When we were building the house, they called it the maid's room."
Heather records her podcast in here. She also loves to sing and play the piano in private, so she uses the upright piano in the music room all the time (as opposed to the one upstairs). She thought her children Maximillia and Nicholas would use the room a lot, but they never do because they are "dabblers," as she put it.
"You're gonna see all kinds of fabulous musical equipment in this room that really have just become props," she said, pointing to a guitar and drum kit.
She describes the pull-out sofa as a good place for "runoff guests" to spend the night, but it looks super comfy to us. No sacrifice there.
When the house was first built, Heather had the adjacent bathroom designed in beige because she thought no one would ever really see it. She then realized it "sucked" once she had decorated the music room, so she had to redo it and make it more lively.
She took leftover black tiles from the pool and used them to make a backsplash design in the shower, and then had a black toilet and other black design accents installed and found some groovy wallpaper.
Heather outfitted the bathroom with flocked leopard print wallpaper, which smartly matches the beige floors that were part of the room's original incarnation.
