Roberta's Brief Bio

Stage right...

     Have you seen the new issue of Architectural Digest magazine? I was flippin' through and came across Sheryl Crow's home in LA and thought it'd be fun to post a celebrity home for today.  This will be a recurring theme in my blog so look for it at least once a month.   Ms. Crow decorated it herself and beautifully, I might add.  The things she's collected throughout her travels shows that the house has evolved to reflect her and her family's personality.  Isn't it so satisfying when you walk into a home and get an immediate sense of who lives there and they really are?
Sheryl Crow's home is a 1926 Spanish colonial hacienda.
Love the 19th century "bone shaker" bicycle and the vintage italian pendant lamps both from Obsolete.  I'm not usually partial to sectionals but this sexy one is pretty great especially tufted.  It's from 22 Bond Street.  The seagrass rug is from Pottery Barn.

The 4 poster bed is by Jayson Home and Garden and the bedding is by Matteo, one of my favorite bedding companies that I first discovered at the NY gift fair.  (I'm just glad the animal heads aren't real.)

She left the original black & white tile work and pedestal sink and added a rug from Safevieh.

I love this crooked railing! It was designed by her grounds keeper; Jose' Edis Aviles.
My fav thing in the house? Hard to say, there's quite a few like the architecure, for one and the italian lighting and tufted sectional... But the kid in me is lovin' that Tipi (teepee) by Earthworks! I always wanted that in my backyard growing up... that or a treehouse.  We had a screened in gazebo which was fun but I would've  flipped to have a teepee for slumber parties!  These days, I admit that I'm not into camping, but there is something pretty magical about sleeping outside, right?  It makes you fall asleep faster and feel more refreshed.  And if I can have indoor plumbing nearby and high thread count sheets, then it could be doable. Could be. Maybe.
