Get the Look of Naomi Watts’s Modern-Chic French Chateau
Technically Naomi Watts’s home is listed as a cottage, but with five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a pool, we’re going to go ahead and call it like we see it: a chateau. If you want to store your clothes in a celebrity closet, you can purchase Naomi’s Hamptons house for the low price of six million. But if you’re fine with just getting the same look, that’s something we can help you out with. With a few DIYs, colorful throw blankets and a couple pieces of staple furniture, you’ll get the elegant cottage vibes that make Naomi’s home look like the perfect setting for a movie about a drama-filled Hamptons vacation.
Even though the ceilings are high, the living room feels like a pretty cozy space thanks to plenty of patterns and warm colors. Multiple area rugs help create a more intimate sitting area, and the window seat is practically begging for a leisurely afternoon nap. Since the room is mostly windows, there isn’t a lot of space for art, but the one huge piece is bright enough to make a statement.
Designers predicted pixels were going to be the next big thing, so DIY your very own piece of pixel wall art with this easy tutorial from The Bold Abode. Even if you don’t have a fireplace, a metallic woven basket from West Elm ($44) is a great storage option for blankets, extra throw pillows or reading material. Throw some color on the floor with a Darya printed rug from Urban Outfitters ($79+) and set up some mood lighting with these white dipped candlesticks from Birdie Fortescue ($58).
Naomi’s kitchen is all class with marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and island seating. Even though the kitchen is open and stylish, there are plenty of homey decor touches. You can spy a coffee maker and a tea kettle on one side of the window and even a set of speakers on the counter. Dance/cooking party, anyone?
If you have glass cabinet doors like the ones in Naomi’s kitchen, dress up your staples with these DIY kitchen organization jars from A Beautiful Mess. Stainless steel never goes out of style, but this colorful coffee maker from Urban Outfitters ($50) will definitely make your morning cup of joe more fun. Give your wooden spoons a stylish home in a marble utensil holder from Crate and Barrel ($25) and arrange your favorite fruit in this handwoven pink swirl basket from Zeal Living ($60).
The master bedroom is exactly what you’d want in a Hamptons beach house: periwinkle blue walls, crisp white sheets and a few French-inspired accents like the sofa and a rustic storage ladder.
Give your room a modern Marie Antoinette vibe with a vintage French sofa from Bliss Home & Design ($3000) and this gem-like umbra prism mirror from Urban Outfitters ($129). If you’re running low on storage ideas, take a page from Naomi’s bedroom and DIY a copper and wood storage ladder with this tutorial from Burkatron. Then use it to store clothes, accessories and this colorful throw blanket from Modcloth ($100).
