how the other half live: jennifer lopez

Jennifer Lopez has been a style icon for many years ever since she broke out that green Versace dress, and as I discovered in Veranda magazine, her sense of style permeates into her home as well. Lopez has created a very elegant, grown-up and relaxing space in her California residence, and according to her interior designer, Michelle Workman, “It’s sort of Jennifer in a nutshell – she has a romantic streak. It’s tastefully glamourous, like Jennifer herself.” Workman adds that, “She knows what she likes” (note absence of word ‘diva’). Art Deco touches feature subtly alongside soft and inviting tones of grey, taupe, peach and pink. Workman also successfully mixes gold and silver – combining masculine and feminine – to add warmth.

I’ve pretty much fallen in love with her home… it’s clear that she likes to surround herself with beautiful things (I would insert a Marc Anthony joke here, but that’s way too obvious). If I had to pick favourites, I’d go with the gold chain chandelier and the accompanying white tufted chairs. And I love the idea of having a ball gown on display. Jenny from the Block? Not even a little bit.
