Celebrity Home Edition!

Hello, my friends. Here's your monthly edition of celebrity homes!
Reese Witherspoon's beautiful new vacation home sits on 7 acres in Ojai-- bucolic village in the foothills north of Los Angeles. The ranch includes a swimming pool, a barn, a horse paddock, and guest cottages. She turned to her friend and interior designer, Kristen Buckingham to decorate Reese' hideaway. In the photo above, she used an 1830s Swedish table, a 1920s tole chandelier, and a vintage chair in her daughter's bedroom.
A collection of antlers surrounds an Italian mirror in her son’s room; the desk is antique, the chair is by BeeLine Home, the rug is Turkish, and the sconces and built-in bed are original to the house.
There are custom-made leather benches and a pair of Swedish wing chairs from the 1760s that surround the Directoire dining table; a Biedermeier chest of drawers holds a lamp by William Haines
An antique Belgian table, Art Nouveau bergères, and a Swedish chesterfield chair in the games area; a circa-1930 portrait by Carl Fischer hangs beside a custom-made étagère filled with vintage Danish pottery.
I love the living room’s high wood ceiling with wrought-iron chandelier. That and the fireplace are original to the house; the Swedish trestle table is a 19th century antique.
The 19th-century leather arm chairs in the living room are English, the sofa is by Buckingham, and the settee is upholstered in a Rogers & Goffigon velvet. The jute rug is by Pottery Barn.
An antique lantern hangs over vintage wicker and iron chairs on the terrace.
The beautiful wide plank floors are original to the house along with the wrought-iron railing and plaster walls. An alcove in the living room contains a mahogany desk from Lars Bolander, a 1920s Swedish chair, and a 19th-century Spanish stool. Atop the stool rests an indian blanket.
