Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore has been nominated for an Oscar five times since 1998. In 2015, she finally won the Best Actress award for her performance in Still Alice. In the film, she played a linguistics professor who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s after her 50th birthday.

The actress opened the doors of her West Village NYC townhouse to AD in 2017. Moore had the five-story building renovated from apartments to a single family home. Afterward, she stocked the house with pieces that were dear to her. Many of these were gifted by friends and family.

Some of the major pieces of furniture she purchased include a George Nakashima cocktail table, lamps by Isamu Noguchi, and a Florence Knoll credenza with rattan doors.

Hilary Swank

A two-time Academy Award winner, Hilary Swank took home the trophy for her roles in Boys Don’t Cry (1999) and Million Dollar Baby (2004). After her second win, she became one of the few actresses to have been nominated for Best Actress twice and won both times.

In her interview with AD, Swank shared that she fell in love with Paris and so decided to move there. Her elegant loft is located in a historic building on the Left Bank. The actress turned to Axel Huynh to help her with the interior design and he filled her home with custom, handcrafted pieces.

“We wanted to create something really lively and fun yet where you could instantly feel at home,” Huynh said. Some of the key pieces in the loft include a green marble desk in the office, retro daybeds in the living space, and cane-back round side chairs in the dining room.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Though she doesn’t do much acting these days, focusing instead on her lifestyle company Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow was once nominated at the Academy Awards and won Best Actress for her role in Shakespeare in Love (1998).

Just last year, the actress and businesswoman welcomed the AD crew to Montecito, California to tour her family home. This was her first ground-up house and she enlisted the help of Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch. The two also designed her Tribeca loft.

“A home should reflect the physicality and ethos of its owner, and this house takes its cues from Gwyneth’s height, beauty, and focus on distillation,” said Standefer. The actress drew plenty of inspiration from her time living in Europe. This is evident from the dining table she sourced from France to the Portuguese backsplash tiles in her kitchen. 

“This house has taught me so much about patience and gratitude. If you commit to design integrity and character, you’ll never be sorry,” Paltrow shared when asked about her experience with building her own home.
