Decor: Home decor and two celebrity homes from California! Part 2

January 10, 2014

Hello, my loves!

In my last post I’ve presented the Mediterranean style, which is, with no doubt, my favorite one. In this post, I’m going to write about California House Plans, for those who are still dreaming of living in California ♥ I know it’s a little bit different for what I usually post, but this won’t happen too often, it’s just another passion of mine.

“Best way to live in California is to be from somewhere else.” 
― Cormac McCarthy

California has a rich architectural history. When fortunes were made, houses were built  in the latest style, with the best materials. California style or inspired home plans often have Mediterranean or Mission style influences in their design. This style consists, as well, of cozy bungalows, tile-roofed Spanish haciendas and sprawling modern ramblers.

Have you ever wondered who owns the biggest mansions in California? While looking for pictures with houses, I’ve found a few of the biggest ones in the USA, but here are 2 examples of the most expensive celebrity homes, which are absolutely amazing! I was pretty curious about the biggest mansions in California and I was surprised to find out how big they actually are!

Will Smith, Calabasas, California (20$ million) 

Everyone knows Will Smith, the “Fresh Prince”, for the success he has achieved in the movie industry. Thus, he was able to invest in such a huge abode composed of basketball courts, golf course, and many other luxuries. The place was so big that it eventually had its own zip code.

Oprah Winfrey, Montecito, California (85$ million) 

Her very successful Oprah Winfrey show ran from 1986 to 2011. This branded her as the “Queen of Talk”. With all the earnings for being in the industry for over 25 years, Oprah was able to invest in an extremely huge and expensive mansion. Aside from her successful talk show, she has also achieved success with all her endorsements and bestseller books. In fact, anything endorsed by this lady is sure to attract lots of customers resulting in skyrocketing sales.

Her mansion is made of 6 bedrooms, 10 fireplaces, 14 bathrooms, a lake for her exotic fish collection, and her own movie cinema. Despite having such huge investments for herself, Oprah also gives back to others and is known for being so generous. She usually gives freebies to her audiences during her shows. Even if her show has already stopped, it still continues to earn millions from royalty to this day.


I’m a bit dissapointed that I haven’t found what I was looking for :(

See you on Monday. I wish you all a great weekend! Kisses!
