There is a whole lot of talent that is housed here. This Studio City, California colonial is the home to Strokes lead guitarist, Nick Valensi, and his wife, Amanda de Cadenet, host of Lifetime’s “The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet.” The interview style show is actually filmed in this house! Guests have included Lady Gaga, Diane Von Furstenburg, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Portia DeRossi.
All my favorites are here. Built in bookshelves? Check. Personalized art work? Check. A mix of Mid-century Modern with a comfortable couch? Check and check. This home is a recent construction and has 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, and 4,000 square feet. It’s listed at $1.79 million.
There’s also a wood burning fireplace for cool California nights. I wonder if the mug on the coffee table has some significance? The simple trim work on the stairway wall adds interest to the area.
I also love the kitchen in this home. Mostly white cupboards with a gray painted island. The simple lighting reminds me of a white version of the Pottery Barn lighting we have in our kitchen.
The master bedroom has double doors that open into the backyard. Do you know what I find most interesting about this room? As gorgeous as this home is, and as organized as it seems, they still have cords falling out from behind their flat screen television on the wall! We have that problem with our small flat screen in our kitchen, and it drives me crazy.Nick and Amanda have 7-year-old twins, and boy and a girl. I like how these rooms seem pretty gender neutral. If I had to guess, I’d say this is their son’s room.
That’s only because there is a pink unicorn on the top bunk. Either way, it looks like they both have their own matching penguin. There is one in each room, cute! The musical touches are apparent in many rooms of this home. A Ringo Starr poster is framed in this child’s room.In this industrial styled guest room, a Beatles poster, and a famous shot of Johnny Cash adorn the walls. You can get your own Cash poster here or here.
It looks like Nick probably does some recording and practice here at home.I like how the guitars are hung above the drum set. I’m hoping to do something similar in our basement later this year. We have a drum set and other musical equipment that I want to display in a more organized fashion.
