There are not so many women out there who get my attention. But this woman has always got my attention. The business lady, with taste, manners, beauty and that mysterious aura around her.
Her house in California designed by a very talented designer - Michelle Workman is no different from that description.
This woman is Jennifer Lopez. Her California residence is a place, where serene glamour prevails. In the foyer, a dramatically sweeping staircase greets visitors. Beneath, a lunette sofa graciously invites them to stay. A white lacquered piano makes a striking statement in the living room, but it's the ethereal blue-grays, velvet sheens and shimmering silvers that truly captivate. In the pale mauvedining room and pastel peach guest bedroom, crystal and blown-glass chandeliers gleam like pieces of jewelry.
Workman, who enhanced the allure factor by adding Art Deco touches throughout the house, says the key to keeping everything in balance is the subtle gradations of color across the generously scaled rooms.
"There are all these tones of gray, and we played with that—using a bit more of a gray-taupe here, a bit more of a gray-blue there," says Workman. "It's almost like a black-and-white film from the forties."
