Over the past week, I was shocked to hear that Reese Witherspoon got married. It truly amazes me how high profile celebrities can keep their private lives so private. I am not the most hip person when it comes to following the stars, but the last I knew, Reese was not interested in marriage at all, especially after her interlude with Jake Gyllenhaal, and shocked again when her engagement was announced in December. I truly never thought she would go through with it. But there you go, celebrities have their own agenda.
As reported in the news, the private wedding took place at Reese’s Ojai ranch home in the presence of about 100 guests. Although it was an outside wedding, we’re going to show a few of the interior rooms of her home. This home was purchased by Reese in April, 2008 from interior designer Katheryn M. Ireland, who incorporated a lot more color than the simplistic, basic and rustic decorating of Reese. Witherspoon has truly gone back to the original concept of this home, an equistrian ranch compound built in 1923, with many additions and improvements since then.
Although expansive in design, Reese Witherspoon’s home lacks expressive color and a feminine touch. She did not follow the interior design code, where she left out the 10% which means add color to draw the eye and add interest. Her neutral colors are fine, but splashes of color appeals to everyone. Compare the two pictures, the first is Reese Witherspoon’s decor and the second is the design of Katheryn M. Ireland. Which is more appealing? You decide!
