Cara Delevingne‘s new home in Los Angeles couldn’t be more stimulating, thrilling, and, above all absolutely enchanting. In the wonderful world of Cara‘s, you will find a ball pit, a costume room, and many other gems. Welcome to the real-life wonderland where boredom doesn’t exist!
A California dreamy retreat for people like Cara – who think outside of the box. At first sight, this could be in Monte Carlo as much as it could be in Coney Island. Since it has the same amount of luxury as it has a whimsical sense of humor.
The architect, Nicolò Bini, is Cara Delevingne‘s partner in crime when it comes to exuberant decoration and, for sure, he fulfilled the supermodel’s wishes with flying colors.
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
Cara Delevingne‘s passion for nature isn’t new. So, let’s begin with that.
In the living room, green elements reign. The walls are covered in Gucci wallpaper of oversized herons and Bini placed a disco ball inside an existing chandelier and redesigned the previous owner’s furnishings with new fabrics and trim.
In the billiard room, you are greeted by a huge snake carpet, a vintage 1930s Brunswick billiard table, and curtain fabric from Robert Allen. On the way up, a climbing leopard rug shows us the right direction.
Outside, in the middle of a verdant garden, you’ll find the most tempting and cheerful pool. A fanciful scenario that makes us wonder and want to lay down on a sun lounger while drinking mojitos during a torrid afternoon. Do you feel the same?
This dazzling and stylish landscape was designed by Anton Prack.
IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES…
Until you get lost in Cara Delenvigne‘s wonderland. We all know Cara is the opposite of boring and this is the place where something is constantly happening. The best proof is the game theme she made sure it was part of the briefing and was followed as her identity.
So, there we go to the fun part! Cara Delevingne‘s wonderland provides the ultimate entertainment experience. If you’re feeling lucky, you should risk it all inside the seductive red tent at the poker room. Very provocative, right?
No, you aren’t dreaming! And yes, this is Cara‘s ball-pit sanctuary, just like the ones from the good and gold old days. Delevingne was successful when she dreamed about creating an Alice in Wonderland-style playground. Now, we are the ones who dream about it!
“If I’m having a bad day, I just hop in the ball pit. You can’t really cry in a ball pit.”Cara Delevingne at Architectural Digest
“My work requires me to put on many different hats and costumes. I love slipping into these various characters, so I wanted my home to reflect lots of different themes and moods.”Cara Delevingne at Architectural Digest
Despite all the flamboyant and swanky stuff, Cara Delevingne admits her home is much more than just a fancy theme park. It has a proper bedroom, dining room, and kitchen. Although, is also a journey where the deeper you go, the more treasures you will find.
One of the most intriguing aspects of the renovation is the fact that Delevingne and Bini retained much of the previous owner’s furniture. According to AD, Cara acknowledged that “It felt wasteful to throw everything away. Sometimes sustainability just means working with what you have.” – And that’s exactly what they did. New upholstered furniture, custom details, fresh paint, and a few strategic architectural additions – such as the new coffered ceiling in the living room – all of that changed the spirit of the decor becoming much more like Cara Delevingne‘s personality.
That’s the success of this project. The house feels like a perfect reflection of its owner, in all her splendor, sass, and quirky humor.
“There’s no doubt whose house you’re in.”Cara Delevingne at Architectural Digest
