We'd argue that the best word to describe actress Diane Keaton is iconic, and her Sullivan Canyon home certainly follows suit. As Wine Spectator reports, the actress custom-designed the industrial-style, open-concept home herself, staying true to her timeless, gender-bending aesthetic that we all know and love.
Believe it or not, Keaton drew inspiration from the childhood fable The Three Little Pigs when designing her burnt-red brick home. After reading about the third little pig's indestructible brick home as a child, she "knew I was going to live in a brick house when I grew up," she told the magazine.
Keaton's dream abode was also influenced by New York's San Remo building, a 1930s Beaux-Arts landmark, where she lived following the success of Annie Hall in the 1970s. "It was one of those remarkable apartments," she recalls. "There was a window on every side. Everything was wide open. That was the beginning of my true interest in architecture."
Step inside Keaton's stunning rustic-industrial home below.
The kitchen features a tall vaulted ceiling and rustic exposed wood beams to contrast with the crisp white color of paint found on the walls. A combination of paneled and wooden walls add to the industrial feel of the space, as do the four hanging pendant lights suspended above the kitchen island. The floors feature light gray hardwood floors to complement the dark blue cabinetry in the room. Finally, a large clock hangs from the ceiling to cement the industrial vibe.
The living room features the same flooring and exposed wooden beams found in the kitchen. This space takes the industrial style one step further with rows of identical black pendant lights hanging from the ceiling in between the beams. A large fireplace serves as the focal point of the space with distressed gray brick contrasting with the white brick walls and adorned with more rustic wooden planks to tie it all together.
The bathroom makes as much of a statement as the rest of the L.A. home does. It includes white subway tiles in the walk-in shower that continues on throughout the entirety of the room. A deep bathtub is protected by industrial black framed glass doors that can remain open or closed. It's a prime example of how to decorate a black and white bathroom in a way that feels both chic and effortless.
