Any email from goop that contains the teaser “Cribz GP Edition” is bound to be good… and the Gwyneth Paltrow apartment tour within does not disappoint. Here’s a hint: a marble countertop is described as “sensual.”
So I have a bit of a confession to make. Over the past couple of years, I’ve gone from an ardent Paltrow hater to something of a fan, conscious uncoupling and all. Yes, her lifestyle and $200 smoothies or whatever are kind of ridiculous, but let’s be honest. If I had all that money, I would probably be doing some very similar stuff. For now, my peasant self will just have to hope that Urban Outfitters restocks the Moon Juice mini set one day so I can attempt to recreate some GP magic on a budget.
But anyway, let’s take a look at the kitchen where Gwyneth herself used to blend some of those $200 smoothies, shall we? (Or maybe her assistant did, I don’t know what it’s like to be Gwyneth Paltrow. I can still barely spell her first name.)
The apartment was designed by Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch of Roman and Williams Buildings and Interiors, the husband-and-wife duo behind projects like The Ace Hotel and The Standard Hotel’s Boom Boom Room. And now that the Paltrow brood is “solidly based in LA,” the “pale, dreamy cloud” that “floats above the cobblestone streets” they designed is for sale to some lucky buyer, sensual marble countertops and all.
Those would be the countertops in question. I do love the swaths of marble throughout the apartment — super luxurious but also quite brightening.
Doesn’t this entryway seem like something Charlotte from Sex & The City would love?
The whole apartment just screams Gwyneth, doesn’t it? I particularly love the swing in the living room, which was made from an antique Indian door and painted white. The space is like GP herself in apartment form, and I’m not mad about it. In fact, I think there’s something to be said for someone who has such a strong sense of self that it totally comes through in their decor!
What do you think? Are you a fan of GP’s crib?
