Ever wonder how the other half lives? Well, Jennifer Aniston and her hubby Justin Theroux have opened the doors to give a glimpse inside their elite Hollywood lifestyle with a new gallery of photos of their $21 million Bel Air home in Architectural Digest.
Aniston designed the home herself, saying "If I wasn’t an actress, I’d want to be a designer.” She says she bought the 1965 mid-century home back in 2011 and partnered with interior designer Stephen Shadley to transform it, along with some input from Theroux.
Aniston says “Justin definitely wanted to be involved, so there was a bit of a learning curve for me on how to include another voice in the design process.” She continues, “For instance, I figured out that immediately saying ‘No!’ to any suggestion is not the most collaborative move.”

“If I wasn’t an actress, I’d want to be a designer. I love the process,” says serial home renovator, and superstar actress Jennifer Aniston. “There’s something about picking out fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul.” Aniston’s commitment to the craft was certainly put to the test in her latest residential project, the reimagining of a Bel Air house that was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones and completed in 1965. Aniston enlisted the aid of #AD100 interior designer @stephenshadley to help preserve the modernist ethos of the original scheme while softening some of its sharp lines and outfitting the interior with tactile, organic finishes and furnishings. “Sexy is important, but comfort is essential,” she avers, pointing as evidence to the vintage Jean Royère Polar Bear sofa, Jacques Adnet armchairs, and Mies van der Rohe daybed arranged in the living room, pictured here.

“Every corner you turn, you have an experience. Everywhere you look, you get a vista,” says actress Jennifer Aniston of her recently completed Bel-Air home. “We worked very hard to get that flow right.” The same imperative guided the transformation of the grounds, which previously featured a hillside vineyard. Garden designer @marcellovillano and landscape architect @anneattinger reorganized the alfresco spaces as a series of interconnected outdoor rooms, terraces, and Asian-inspired pocket gardens. Sundays at the Aniston-Theroux home are reserved for cooking and frolicking by the pool with friends, children, and dogs. “We put out a mean taco bar, and the chili’s pretty good in the colder months,” the actress says.Take a closer look inside the home through the #linkinbio Photo by @francoisdischinger; design by @stephenshadley; text by @mayer.rus; styled by @lawrenhowell
