Gwyneth Paltrow’s New York City apartment is as pristine as you’d imagine.

Paltrow, 43, has relocated to Los Angeles, and has since put her Tribeca property on the market for over $12 million, according to StreetEasy. Great news for us, as we now get an inside look at the home she designed with Roman and Williams, of which her website Goop.com describes as a “dreamy cloud.”

It’s a pretty accurate description: the color palette is blindingly white, with most of the accent pieces taking on pale gray or lavender shades.

The living room is full of “artisanal” touches like hand-embroidered wallpaper and marble accents. A swing — where children Apple, 12, and Moses, 10, apparently play and read — is made from an antique Indian door and topped with silk pillows.

And that kitchen. Who wouldn’t be inspired to write a cookbook with countertops like that?

While we don’t get to see the bedroom, Goop said, “The gigantic bed in the master bedroom (so enormous that sheets had to be custom-made) was designed so every last family member can sit together on it, cousins and pets included.”

Hopefully no one spills.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Okay, I looked. Pale and dreamy, it is not. Pale is soft shades of neutrals, yellows, maybe pinks and grays. This is blindingly white, stark, and just plain ugly! The first thing I would do, is splash, literally splash, paint at the walls.

Cold and boring….much like Gwyneth.

I like the kitchen. Although, I like dark cabinets which I would have either do in dark grey or black. That island in the kitchen, which looks like marble is simply wonderful!

paula on

the floors remind me of a public pool. Otherwise it’s nice

WJ on

I think it is tastefully done, but a little too sterile for me. I need something cozier, warmer tones, a place that my kids can play and make messes. Seeing every speck of dust and every finger print in a place like this would make me insane.

Wowsers on

I can’t imagine how much dirt there must be in that rug. It would be impossible to clean!

Suzanne on

Way too white and sterile for my taste and the swing was NOT for the children you idiot! Who writes this stuff??

Brooke on

“Pale and Dreamy”

more like “Boring, Pretentious & Bland” JUST like its owner

Tina on

It looks just like her.

CallMeMaybe on

High end, expensive and sterile. Certainly doesn’t look like a home you would live in.

jg1965 on

Looks like a mental hospital – sterile and white.

Not a warm feeling at all. Stark white. Cold!!

Too white for me… add a splash of colour and it would be lovely!

i’ve never seen anything LESS child friendly or welcoming.

Letty Aguire on

Looks like a Hospital…. all white is boring!

Steacy Curry on

I hate the floors but like everything else! The kitchen is gorgeous and she’s got some really cool pieces in the living room. This is exactly what I would expect her to have, haha.

INGA on

I loooooooove it !

Nothing warm and inviting about the place! It looks like the home of a woman who would steam-clean her vagina. Am I right?

Maria on

Wow…. Boring! 💤
I’m sure everything is top quality but, it’s a snooze fest!
It’s cold and clinical,nothing “homey” or welcoming.

Just a Duck on

Not a fan of the living room rug, but everything else is good.

S. on

Don’t like the kitchen cupboards. Maybe different handles or something. It is not pale or soft either.

Kimber D on

These comments are so cruel towards her. I’m always so shocked at how mean people are to her, but in general online. Its truly disturbing. And her place is effing gorgeous and classy and stunning. Yep, just like her.

Zeze on

It’s very pretty, but it doesn’t look like a place where children could be comfortable.

em on

Looks like a fun place!! Joking..

Sarah on

Not a place for small children.

It looks like a high level office. Cold place and very uncomfortable looking. I can’t imagine not having arm rests where you need to rest your arms after a hard day of work. It has no character at all. It’s very boring. Odd set up for a 12 million apartment. But she likes it so that is what matters.
