Molly Sims recently told Lonny that she’d rather “buy a couch than a dress.”
In the magazine’s profile of the famed supermodel, Sims describes her longtime love for design and her honing of a personal style she calls “a good balance between eclectic and conservative.”
Sims and her husband Scott Stuber live in a colonial-style home in Beverly Hills, California, which Sims redecorated with help from interior designer Kishani Perera. Notable design choices includeChristopher Farr drapery, vases by En Soie, and tie-dye pillows by Perera, as well as baby furniture and accessories from 3 Sprouts, Aden + Ananis, and Rikshaw Designs. The couples boasts an impressive art collection that ranges from Slim Aarons photography to prints by Damien Hirst.
In addition to her California home, Sims has properties in Paris, Cabo San Lucas, the Hamptons, and Manhattan. “When I bought my apartment in New York, I couldn’t afford it, but I’ve never been able to afford anything I’ve bought,” the author of the Everyday Supermodel told Lonny.
As far as her property collection goes, Sims is not quite through. She is quoted as saying that she and Stuber are “never done” buying homes, so we suspect that she’ll be adding to her cache of real estate gems once again very soon.
Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence—who starred in The Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle— has scooped up Jessica Simpson‘s Beverly Hills home for $7 million.
The five-bedroom, six-bath Hamptons-inspired traditional—whose former residents include Ellen DeGeneres, Paul Hogan, and Hollywood powerhouse Rick Yorn—was custom-built in 1991, and recently renovated by Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture. Simpson reportedly bought the Hidden Valley property in 2005 for $5.275 million.
The Kerry Joyce-designed house has crown and base moldings, high ceilings, and 5,500 square feet of living space, with a commercial-grade kitchen boasting a stainless steel sink and expansive wooden top.
The home’s charming dining room overlooks a garden, while its central living area boasts a fireplace and multiple sets of French doors, allowing for sweeping views of the outdoor grounds. The master suite—which opens up to a terrace—is fit for the Hollywood star, with its overstuffed, luxurious bed, opulent chandelier, cozy sitting area, and glamorous dressing table. The home also features a media room, where Lawrence can watch recordings of the Academy Awards.
Jennifer Lawrence—who recently suffered the embarrassment of having hundreds of suggestive photos leaked online—will surely appreciate the privacy of her beautiful new backyard and tree-lined lap pool. Another highlight of the enchanting outdoor space is a courtyard with ivy-laden walls, plantings between pavers, and a beautiful koi pond and fountain.

Jennifer Lopez has been on the hunt for the perfect Hamptons mansion for years, and it looks like she finally found her dream house near Mecox Bay. The 43-year-old megastar recently purchased a 8-bedroom, 7.5 bathroom, 8,500 square foot custom-designed home, reports the New York Post.
The posh property sits on three acres of land and includes a sparkling pool, pool house, theater, sauna, steam room and covered porches. The former “American Idol” and her boyfriend Caspar Smart, 25, reportedly visited the estate several times before JLo signed on the dotted line. Lopez particularly liked that there was plenty of room to build a guest house for visiting family, staff or for more of her entourage, sources revealed.
