Oscar-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg spent several weeks in the Detroit area filming the upcoming Transformer movie. In interviews, he said he enjoyed his visit very much, but we’re sure he was happy to return to his family and his Beverly Hills, California home.
The estate is on the market and includes seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, pool, guest house and a 2,500-square-foot gym with boxing ring and sport court. The price is $12,995,000 – or you can visit Art Van and get Wahlberg’s look. We love the French country charm of his formal living room. Take a look at the pieces you can assemble to get the feel in your home:
Start with the Kerry Sofa from the England Collection. Covered in a soft brown chenille fabric, the sofa includes toss pillows with a muted pattern. The rolled arms and deep cushions are comfortable and inviting. The England Collection is one of our custom-order groupings, so if brown’s not your thing, you can choose from more than 300 fabrics.
Next, add a pair of chairs. The Jaden III Chair is also from the England Collection and is available in more than 300 fabrics. Choose a neutral plaid, like the chairs in the Wahlberg home, or find a pattern that is all your own. The comfortable construction makes the Jaden III a great chair to cozy up in.
The traditional lines of the Manwell Rectangular Cocktail Table give the room an elegant feel. With square legs and step-down framed bead detail, the table is stylish as well as functional. And the ornate edge details add warmth to the design.
Peeking out behind the sofa is a gorgeous wooden sideboard. Choose our Cherry Sideboard from the HGTV Home Furniture Collection. With stone inserts, the piece would make a great bar or storage unit. Behind its four wood doors, are two adjustable wood shelves.
In the corner of the Wahlberg living room is an armoire. Perfect for hiding blankets, games or drink ware, our Harbor View Armoire includes storage cubbyholes behind its louver detailed doors. The piece can also accommodate a television weighing 95 pounds or less and measuring no larger 35″.
The lamp in Wahlberg’s living room is classic and elegant – just like our mirrored lamp with gold toned accents. Adding light to the room, its traditional shaped shade also adds a touch of sophistication.
Finally, underfoot in the Wahlberg home is a neutral floral rug. Our Carolina Wild Collection rug would be perfect choice. In classic ivory background, the tan, coral and sage flowers provide a calming and delicate pattern. It’s woven with a 35 mm pile height for added dimension. And the edges are finished with a fray proof surge to prolong the life of the rug.
