Statuesque Molly Sims may be well-known as a model for CoverGirl, as well as her role in TV’s “Las Vegas,” but she is also making her mark with her interior design sensibilities. Sims’ Hollywood home, currently on the Los Angeles real estate market for $2.8 million, was featured in InStyle Home in 2005 and InStyle magazine in 2009.
Sims’ 1930s Spanish-style estate was renovated in 2003 with the help of celebrity interior designer Kishani Perera, mixing new and old pieces to create a luxurious, but lived-in feel. Perera also designed Sims’ New York City loft, as well as the homes of actresses Kaitlin Olson, from “Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” and Mary Lynn Rajskub from “24.”
The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath home is nothing short of glamorous. Sims’ choice of luxurious fabrics, modern prints — like a zebra-print rug in the front hall — and chic colors add to the estate’s overall sophistication, as well as boosts the Los Angeles home’s value. Even the bathrooms are designed thoughtfully with high ceilings, handsome gray stone tiles, and marble countertops.
Sims’ most recent design update, a redo on her office when the star launched her new line of jewelry, was featured in November 2009 InStyle magazine. The office has dramatic wall-papered walls, thick carpeting and was redesigned with “functionality” in mind, wrote designer Perera in her blog:
“I added some fun new pieces like an inspiration board (see photo below) for all of her thoughts and ideas, a gorgeous, antique vitrine from Emmerson Troop in L.A. to display her creations, and just for fun, a bunch of fab ikat toss cushions from Nathan Turner.”
The private home sits high above Hollywood with sweeping city views. French doors throughout the home lead to the walled exterior, a private pergola, and lush garden patios. The “cook’s kitchen” has Viking appliances and a full-sized wine refrigerator.
Sims’ home is listed by real estate agent Brett Karns of Keller Williams-Beverly Hills.
