Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

Avril Lavigne, the pop-punk-rock-star wannabe has been divorced from Deryck Whibley since December of 2010. No big news about that, but as you know, when a celebrity gets divorced, soon they put their house for sale and it’s no different with her. She just put her Los Angeles house up for the same price she once bought it for: $9,500,000.

The house was built in 2003 and is located in a very prestigious gated community of Bel Air Crest. It has over 12,000 sq.ft. of living space, 8 bedrooms, 10 full and 1 half bathroom, Venetian plaster walls, a huge chef’s kitchen and a beautiful pool with gorgeous views.

To be truly honest, I would never post this house if it wasn’t hers and I’m just doing this because I find it interesting to see how and where some celebrities live. I didn’t really care for the decor. I know some people will like it, but I think it’s too dark. Usually, by the time we see a celebrity listing, their belongings are all gone and the house is staged. If this is the case for this house, I must say that the stagers are trying to give an “edgy” look to the house to match Avril’s personality, which I don’t necessarily agree with. I think this house would have so much more potential to sell if it was well decorated. That’s my opinion, but I can’t wait to hear yours!

 

Avril Lavigne’s House

Beautiful curb-appeal.

Trees

The trees add some privacy.

Front Door

Lovely.

Gardens

Lush gardens.

Foyer

Beautiful floors and architecture, but it feels too bare.

Dining Room

This room actually feels nice and welcoming, the chandelier is beautiful and the room has a great feel with the open doors to the garden.

Family Room & Eating Area

And the “creepy decor” starts… Sorry guys, but I think there’s too many dark elements in one room and the chandelier reminds me of “Dracula’s Castle.”

Open Space

Very large.

Chairs

These chairs are great, but everything look incredibly heavy here because all elements selected combined with the architecture and the plastered walls are already heavy. This room would look much better with more balance.

Kitchen

Beautiful kitchen! Love all the counter space.

What’s Cooking?

I wouldn’t complain if I had this kitchen. Love the space!

Butler’s Pantry

Beautifully done.

Upstairs

Beautiful views surround this home.

Master Retreat

The bed is beautiful, but that chair is too heavy for this room. Again, too many “heavy” and “bulky” furnishings in one single room.

Master Bathroom

Lovely balcony access.

Guest Bedroom

Venetian plaster walls are beautiful, but I think they shouldn’t be used in every single room of a house. This guest bedroom would look better if it had lighter colors.

Guest Bathroom

Nicely done, but again, too much of the same color.

Outdoor Areas

The best will begin now! Let’s go outside!

House

This house has a great backyard, perfect for California’s warm weather.

Views

Peaceful.

Water & Sky

I love this photo. Can you imagine swimming here and looking at the hills?

Relax

A dreamy spot to relax.

Where To Be

If you ever get tired of the decor inside, you can come here and just enjoy the natural beauty.

Night Light

The back of the house during the night. That pool is “screaming” party!

I really can’t wait to know what you think of Avril Lavigne’s house. Share your thoughts and let me know if you’d spend $9,500,000 for it.

Oh, did you have a good weekend? Remember I told you I was planning on eating lots of ice cream during the weekend? Well, I couldn’t disappoint you, so, yes! I ate lots of delicious ice cream every day! I also had so much fun with my kids and husband. We went to a playground with the kids, cooked together, prepared some fresh seafood and ate some more ice cream! 🙂

Have a very blessed week! I also want to thank you all for coming here everyday and if this your first time, I hope you feel welcomed and keep coming back! Having you here is always a gift for me.

    Wow your right lots of great features if the black wasn’t used so heavily…didn’t know there was that much privacy in Bel Air, stunning pool, great post as always!

  2. SizzleandZoom said,

    No, I wouldn’t spend the money if I had it on this home. But the views are priceless. Lots of heavy furniture and dark. I like lighter woods. Lots of pros and cons on this home.

    Oh good for you for getting all of that ice cream this weekend…thinking it’s a girl. Love the outdoor areas and views of this home but the house is just not my style. Hope you have a wonderful week!!

  6. Tereza said,

    Realmente, a moça não entende e nem se preocupa com decoração ou aconchego, a casa é pesada, quase lúgubre. Sempre achei que roqueiros, eternos rebeldes, tivessem a irreverência como lema, e que isto se refletiria em suas casas também, mas percebo que não é o caso.
    De qualquer maneira, o entorno é lindo, o que salva a casa.
    Uma ótima semana prá você.
    Beijos

  7. Tiffany @ Savor Home said,

    Good morning! Hope you had a great weekend. The house is not quite my style, but if I won the lottery, I could certainly turn it into my dream home. I’d make it a bit brighter… The outside is quite fabulous though!

  8. Modern Country Style said,

    I feel a bit sorry for her looking at this. There’s no way that she can have styled that house herself – it just looks waaaay too old for her. Poor little lovey!!!

  9. Marianne {Style For Living} said,

    Yikes, so many heavy elements. The pool is amazing though!

  10. The Texas Peach said,

    I love the kitchen and outdoor space. I agree with you, that chandelier is very Dracula’s castle! The views from the house are amazing. I can’t say that I would spend ten million dollars for it though.

  11. Carmen Martins said,

    Oi LU, tudo bem, querida? comigo está tudo ótimo! E o baby, hein? Eu concordo com você, acho que a melhor coisa da casa é a decoração externa que combina perfeitamente com a natureza brilhante. bjs

  12. Meera @ firstsense said,

    There’s no denying that the architecture, space and grounds here are incredibly beautiful, but too much dark wood and old fashioned paint-effects (or is all that wallpaper) for my liking. But us designers see beyond the decor to appreciate the space and dream up new wonderful decor!

    Hope you’re doing well, pretty lady. Happy new week to you!

    Meera xx

    Hi, Lu
    I’m glad you had a great weekend. Mine was lovely and we went to Rhode Island which is only 1h away from us. But Maine is our next trip!

    This home is certainly pretty, but not my style. I would need to have more white in it.

  14. The enchanted home said,

    I do not at all like the decor, the heavy red drapes, the oversized leather chairs, ugh…..so drab and so eighties! Must have been leftovers in some designers storage warehouse somewhere! Its bad enough there is so much dark wood to begin with they should try to make it light and airy and bright and happy, not drag it down with more heaviness! The bathrooms are sooo boring and so builders spec, surprised about that. From the outside though it has great curb appeal, the views are gorgeous and the backyard and pool area is fantastic. It definitely has potential, but the buyer has to see beyond the dripping red velvet drapes, hideous leather chairs, and cheesy other staged pieces and look at the bones of the house which overall look quite nice.

    The backyard is really special…you are right…PARTY.

  16. Lilia@Intrigue and Inspire said,

    Oh my! It’s like someone was actually decorating what they think Avril would have her house. Still, the faux (or perhaps real venetian plaster) finish on the wall is not appealing. The rooms feel too hot visually. Still, I did like the cabanas in the backyard, the architecture is interesting and the view is to die for!

  17. Ann said,

    Hmmm… I like the structure of the house but the furniture not so much. I think some of the furniture and decor are not there anymore…but I love the outdoor space.

  18. Sherri @ Inside Out Design said,

    Hi Luciane,
    I’m glad you had a nice weekend 😉
    I love the exterior of this house – but you are right, the interior is not what I would expect.

  19. Sheila Zeller said,

    Hello my friend! How have you been?
    When I looked at this house, it didn’t feel like a home at all to me. I found myself feeling a little lonely inside just trying to imagine what it would be like to live there. And even the views, as stunning as they are, left me feeling alone. And I guess for a celebrity that’s maybe a good feeling, but it’s not for me at all. I have to agree with you – I love the dining room space the very best. It felt way more cozy compared to the rest of the house, and the chandelier was totally to die for. It was STUNNING! That’s maybe the only thing I would want from this one.
    I hope your week is going well.
    xo Sheila

  20. michele@hellolovelyinc said,

    omg this is so weird, L. avril’s place with her ex is EXACTLY i mean A COMPLETE REPLICA of my first place with my husband.

    or not not not at all.

    i’m going to pass on buying this one just because 10+ bathrooms seems like a lotta toilet paper rolls to buy at walmart each week.

  21. Gloria said,

    The outside of this house looks like the house they used in the movie, “Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.” Man, I loved that movie! (it’s that creepy one with Betty David and Joan Crawford) Anyway, the outside, front and back, is nice, but for almost 10 million, I don’t think it’s worth it. And who the hell needs ten bathrooms?
    Best,
    Gloria

  22. Becka said,

    I would deffinly buy it. I would have to add some changes to it cusz i dont like dark colors but thats it

  23. Liz said,

    It seems to me she already moved out and all that stuff is just because

  24. Jez said,

    I love the house except for the front enterence. I would so buy it! I could only pay 6 million for it though 🙁

  25. Lala said,

    Kim Kardashian expressed an interest in the property calling it her ‘dream home’ in her family’s reality show

  26. Zach Y. said,

    I live in Hong Kong and in HK 9,500,000 is quite a normal prince for a house in here. And if the house is this big, it will sell for 100,000,000USD

  27. cascoalo said,

    que puedo decir,orrible demasiado rustico,oscuro,todo del mismo color partes desnudas colores apagados no creo que alla mucha gente que la quiera pero las vistas no e visto muchas como esas impresionante!

  28. niks said,

    the outside views are awesome..however, the interiors look too over-powering..probably smthing in lighter tones and designs would have complimented all the other things combined. the texture on the walls seem nice in common areas. it cold have been different with some wall art/ some art-e-facts hanging on the walls.
