“We wanted a place to watch our kids play and grow up,” she tells Architectural Digest
When Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren bought a new house in the Beverly Hills Post Office neighborhood, which bears that famed 90210 zip code, she thought that all she’d need to do was paint.
As is often the case, she told Architectural Digest, that renovation quickly turned into an 18-month production. As part of the process, the original floor plan was altered to improve the flow of the common areas, and they “blew out the back of the house” to make room for an accordion-style folding glass door.
They called in a highly recommended team to decorate—Kathleen and Tommy Clements, who decorated Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi’s Beverly Hills house. (“They’d have us over for holiday parties, and we’d leave and say to each other, ‘Their house is so sick!’ Alba says.)
The house, which is a soothing mixture of grays, taupes, wood, and marble, is a full-on family home, with a play set in the expansive backyard. “We wanted a place to watch our kids play and grow up,” Alba says.
