Douglas Friedman for Harper's Bazaar
It's no secret that model, mom, and businesswoman Miranda Kerr has a fierce sense of style, but it turns out Kerr's taste translates to her home, too. The 33-year-old Australian native welcomed Harper's Bazaar into her charming 1960s ranch home in Malibu, California, revealing a lovingly styled abode adorned with sentimental pieces such as artwork by son Flynn.
"I knew that this house was it at first sight. It needed a lot of work, but it had a great view," she says of the property, which she bought with former partner Orlando Bloom in 2014. "I could just see the potential. In some ways it feels like a tree house... It's all open, and the view of the ocean makes it feel more spacious."
When it came to outfitting the beach property, Kerr says sustainability was key. Fiancé, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, gave her a Skywater 300, a machine that draws moisture from the humidity in the air and produces water for the entire house, including drinking water and showers.
The Californian home tour reveals more than Kerr's penchant for environmental home technology. It appears she's also an avid interior decorator, admitting she adhered to one rule to create a balanced space. "I like to experiment with texture and fabric more than color," she says. "I'm a tactile person, so there are so many different types of fabrics around the house, like layered curtains and fluffy rugs, throws and pillows, and just a few pops of color."
Curious to see how a supermodel styles her home? Take a look inside Miranda Kerr's Malibu estate:
Kerr's living area has a neutral color palette, with bursts of teal and aquamarine introduced via accent cushions and statement arm chairs. Brightly patterned pillows, made from Hermès scarves, give the space a unique touch.
Artworks by Damien Hirst are styled side-by-side with pieces by Kerr's son, Flynn.
