Happy Friday! Hope you had a great week. My son’s home for Spring Break and it’s been nice hanging out with him. I wasn’t planning to blog today, actually, but then model and actress Brooklyn Decker’s kitchen caught my eye. This is the “Texas-style farmhouse” in West Austin she shares with tennis-star husband Andy Roddick, and she did all the decorating herself.
Brooklyn Decker’s Kitchen
The kitchen design is a striking mix of rough, reclaimed wood, country blue cabinets, and marble.
She tells My Domaine:
“Aside from the construction, we did everything ourselves. We refinished and installed all the hardware, refinished the cabinets. We designed everything and tried to do as much of it on our own as we could, save for setting the marble, which would have been very dangerous seven months pregnant—seeing as I have no clue how to do it.”
She was determined to track down a marble called Arabiscato, “which looks like cookies and cream,” and admits she hugged and kissed it when they finally found the perfect slab.
She reupholstered the chairs in the dining area with colorful vintage Mexican serape blankets:
Visit My Domaine to see the rest of her casual, kind of quirky farmhouse (photography by Casey Dunn). Brooklyn plays Mallory in the hit Netflix series “Grace & Frankie,” which returns for a second season on May 6. Can’t wait to see more of that beach house! 🙂
