How to Get the Look of Miranda Kerr’s Cool Blue Beach House
After purchasing a home in Malibu last year, supermodel Miranda Kerr immediately made it her own with a bright nautical makeover as well as having the house “feng-shuied, blessed, doused and checked for electromagnetic fields.” That’s right, this house has some seriously positive vibes, and thanks to Vogue Living, you can take a peek into the cool oasis she shares with her number one guy: four-year-old son, Flynn.
Inspired by the Pacific Ocean, the midcentury house feels contemporary and coastal, boasting a blue-and-white palette with rustic touches like rattan and wood. With throw pillows, a geometric rug, accent tables and a few glam touches, Kerr’s home feels like a breath of fresh air that is easy to recreate. Blessings not included.
Bring more natural vibes into your space with a DIY rough edge coffee table from Dream Green DIY and a DIY woven rope pendant light from Design Sponge. A neutral rug is good for keeping the space light and bright, but adding a DIY pattern to your rug really pulls the whole room together. Then switch up your couch colors with these ocean-inspired blue ombre pillows ($58).
Kerr wanted a home that reminded her of her childhood in Australia: a relaxed atmosphere where family and friends could come and hang out. “I always have people staying with me. I like that people know that they can make themselves at home,” she told Vogue.
To recreate this look, this rustic timber side table DIY by Francois et Moi would be perfect for putting by your bathtub, and here’s a blue velvet chair from Target ($300) because why not? Create a little reading nook by pairing the velvet chair with this DIY copper side table by A Beautiful Mess and top with some pretty flowers.
After living in New York for 10 years, the model and businesswoman moved out west to get more real estate. She told Vogue Living that she loved New York, but with an active little guy, she wanted him to have outdoor space to play in. Even though the house was built in the 1960s, it feels completely modern with a wraparound veranda and light, open spaces.
You don’t need a porch to DIY this hanging hammock chair — it would totally be a fun addition to a small-space living room that needs some extra seating.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
