I'm excited to present a post from one of our favorite sites, Shelterpop!
The superstar's California home is glamorous, sophisticated and surprisingly understated.
We're happy to report that Veranda magazine, now overseen by the ever-talented Dara Caponigro, keeps getting better and better. Case in point: Veranda shared a sneak peek of their January/February issue with ShelterPop and boy, were we wowed. The issue's coverline "American Glamour Now!" is a nod to all the homes in the issue, but the highlight is the stunning story on Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's California home. While J. Lo's personal style often errs toward the sparkling and synthetic, her home is an oasis of low-key, natural charm — with a few hints of sparkle. Designed by interior designer Michelle Workman, the space is sophisticated and glamorous without being showy. "It's sort of Jennifer in a nutshell," says Workman. "She has a romantic streak. Jennifer wanted to go modern and streamlined but retain the sophistication and stylishness. It's tastefully glamorous, like Jennifer herself."
Here's a peek at some of what you'll find in Veranda: Soft gray-blue walls are the perfect backdrop for feminine furnishings in Lopez's living room. We love how Workman and Lopez have mixed varying neutral tones with metallic finishes for a fresh look. Continue reading to see more photos!
The cool toned palette continues in the kitchen area where built-in cabinets are painted to match the walls. Elegantly upholstered dining chairs surround a black pedestal table for a chic place to eat a quick bite — though with her svelte figure, we doubt Lopez is eating too many of those gigantic red velvet cupcakes on the table.
Cast in soft, feminine tones of peaches and cream, the bedroom looks more J. Lo than Marc Anthony to us. Designer Michelle Workman says, "We wanted it to be graceful, with just enough sparkle."
