Elle Decor + Courteney Cox's Malibu Retreat


The malibu beach home of Courteney Cox is featured in Elle Decor this month (July/Aug/11) and I couldn't help but notice how refreshingly low key it is.  A few notes;  the large beachy Vitali photograph hanging on the wall in the photo (directly below) and the log end table, the vintage stools contrasting against the white cabinetry in the kitchen (note no upper cabinets), the indoor/outdoor kitchen/patio tiles, the patio bar/kitchen that looks like a food truck, the desk in the bedroom, and not to forget the outdoor banquette.  A really nice Malibu retreat. Renovated by architect, Michael Kovac and designed by Courteney's good friend, Trip Haenisch (with Courteney involved in every step of the redesign). Photographed by Simon Upton.

I really like the decked seating area outdoors - would be great for late night chats and drinks!

Really like the kitchen chairs, have a school-marmish charm. It's difficult to find Elle deco in England sometimes, is it very different from Elle Decoration UK? This would be standard stuff for UK version.
