Speaking of Prettiness

leave a comment »

Is that even a word? Prettiness?  Well, I’ve been holding onto these pictures for a little while and felt that today was a good day to post them.  This is (random, I know) Will and Jada Smith’s Malibu home.  Maybe pretty isn’t the word for this property . . . maybe INSANELY AMAZING is more like it.  What do you think?  Could you live here?

Or is this more your speed?  It’s in Bali and is FOR SALE!  Little blurb about it below – I think the elevated bedroom suites (in the little peaks) are genius.

Interior designer and environmentalist Linda Garland created this oceanfront retreat (AD, August 2009) for film director Rob Cohen of The Fast and the Furious fame. Modeled after traditional Sumatran Minangkabau architecture, the compound consists of an open-air living/dining pavilion and three enclosed bedroom suites—all elevated on poles and topped with soaring thatched roofs made from locally grown grass.Located at the base of Mount Agung, the six-acre grounds also include a pair of modernist villas in addition to a swimming pool. Made of recycled timber, the structures are as eco-friendly as they are exotic.

As for PR last night . . . the only thing I thought was pretty was Nina’s shirt that she wore during the consultations.  Looking forward to seeing what you have to say.
