Jennifer Aniston opens the doors to her new Bel Air mansion, which she painstakingly transformed from a stunning structure into a true home.
In the latest issue of Architectural Digest, the former Friends actress sits down to talk about the cozy sanctuary she shares with husband Justin Theroux. It turns out the design is a craft that Aniston is very passionate about. After all, good taste seems second nature to her, and she goes as far to say that if she didn't get into acting, she would have probably been a designer.
"I love the process," Aniston describes. "There's something about picking out fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul."
Reimagining A Home
Designed by architect A. Quincy Jones, the couple's new Bel Air residence dates back to 1965. When Aniston acquired the home in 2011, it wasn't aesthetically to her liking, but there was an instant connection that told her that it could be something special for her and her husband.
To custom-fit the residence to her liking, the actress worked with designers Stephen Shadley, Kathleen and Tommy Clements, and Jane Hallworth. Theroux also provided input, which Aniston admits she had to learn to adjust to.
The result of the collaboration is a harmonious space that blends classic glamor pieces with Aniston's signature relaxed Cali vibe. The actress says the team worked very hard to achieve this flow.
Now that she has accomplished a stunning home in Bel Air with her husband Theroux, Aniston feels she can sit back and relax.
"There was a time when I thought there was something romantic about picking up and trotting off somewhere different every three months," she says, adding that she is now more particular about the work she commits to. After all, there's a Bel Air home and family waiting for her.
"I look around at my husband and my dogs and our home, and there's nowhere else I want to be."
Aniston's Next Projects On Film And TV
Of course, Aniston isn't quitting Hollywood to be a full-time homebody just yet. Next up for the actress is a role in the upcoming indie teen comedy Dumplin'.
The 48-year-old plays a former beauty queen Rosie with a daughter who decides to join a beauty pageant to regain her self-confidence and win the heart of a jock she likes. Directed by Anne Fletcher, the film also stars Danielle Macdonald and Luke Benward.
Aniston is also set for a television comeback along with pal Reese Witherspoon. The untitled straight-to-series project focuses on a morning show and is already signed on for two seasons with a total of 20 episodes.
