When it comes to women we admire, Brooke Shields tops our talent list. Aside from being an accomplished actress, Shields is a published author, wife, and mother, and now she can add decorator to her long list of titles. The Hollywood icon recently gave Better Homes and Gardens magazine an exclusive tour of the Long Island, New York, cottage, which she decorated entirely herself. Shields referred to her “dream house” file for inspiration—which we’re told she has been keeping for years—merging Hollywood glamour, beach motif, and showstopping pieces seamlessly. “Every single room I loved was neutral with pops of color,” she says.
The star is a big fan of the high-low mix too: “I love, love, love tag and estate sales, flea markets, auctions. I can envision the transformation of anything,” she adds. Shields’s cozy home features more pops of bright color than her previous Pacific Palisades residence.
