Catch the View at Courteney Cox’s Malibu Home
Here’s a fun fact about Courteney Cox — did you guys know that the Friends star wanted to be an architect before she became an actress? Obviously, her passion for design never left her because Cox’s newly revamped home in Malibu is nothing short of perfection. Elle Decor took a peek inside Cox’s personal retreat, where beautiful outdoor living spaces take advantage of those Instagram-worthy California views. Take a tour with us and get your Pinterest ready, ’cause this star’s house is full of inspiration for your next interior decorating spree!
An enormous vintage lamp extends over a sleek white sectional in the living area where other eclectic pieces group around a flagstone fireplace. In the all-white room, the black window frames are a modern accent that is repeated in the black coffee table and throw pillows.
Even though Cox’s living room is very modern, the sofa is soft and comfy. Just the way we/Goldilocks like it. If you like her white sectional, check out the Russell sectional ($2,800), this glossy square table ($285) and light the room up with a black arch lamp ($398).
Vintage barstools are a fun contrast to this glossy, ultra modern kitchen where the flagstone floors are the same color and pattern as the fireplace in the living room.
We are already planning on how we could make our own concrete table, but in the meantime, we love this similar concrete-topped table ($3,600). We would so add some natural art pieces like these petrified wood slices ($373) to them. Also something we bet you could make your own version of!
The cool color palette is a little Scandinavian, and this cozy reading nook takes full advantage of the natural light.
The master bathroom takes an unexpected turn into a more glamorous retreat with velvet seating and faceted pendant lights, the gray and white color palette consistent with the rest of the home.
With blue and gray hues, the master bedroom is cool and collected with a wall of glass doors that open up onto the deck and very simple wood and metal furniture inside. Instead of cluttering up the space with curtains, Cox opted to go with simple pull down shades on some of the windows that require more privacy.
If you love Cox’s retro desk, check out this wood desk ($2,000) or hit up flea markets and antique sales stat. Since there is no ceiling lighting in the master bedroom, Cox relies on floor lamps to lend light. We really love this cantilever lamp ($130) which is similar to the one Cox has next to her desk.
The game room boasts a rustic wood pool table and comfy seating for those hanging out in the room. One of the few pieces of art in the house is a modern painting that, along with the rainbow-hued books on the shelves, brings color into the otherwise white room.
With a view that stunning, how could you bring yourself to eat indoors? The slatted porch cover offers some protection from the sun and is the perfect place to hang some big lights for partying late into the evening.
The porch is decorated with furniture similar to the pieces indoors like the concrete table and stools and lots of comfy seating for soaking up some sun.
There is a little outdoor kitchen and bar for making quick and easy drinks and snacks and the cocktail seating provides a fun place to hang out and snack. Drooling over this in particular? Check out more gorgeous outdoor kitchens here!
Evenings around this cool fireplace would be just about perfect. The circular seating provides enough seating for lots of guests to stay cozy and comfortable while chatting.
