Take a quick look at this celebrity home and you’ll need a “sixth sense” to guess its owner. That’s because the serene and classic décor doesn’t fit the “die hard” action hero’s tough guy image. If you haven’t guessed, you might be surprised to learn that this gorgeous Manhattan apartment is home to Bruce Willis and his wife Emma Heming.
Recently listed for $13 million, the Willis property features views of Central Park from its living and dining rooms and master suite. It includes three bedrooms, three and a half baths, a large kitchen, and this open and airy living room.
“They just spent two years renovating it; they took it back to the studs,” Ann Cutbill Lenane, the Douglas Elliman broker who has the listing, told Zillow.
If you like Willis’ style, you don’t need $13 million to get it. We’ve got the look:
Start with a pair of understated sofas or a sofa and loveseat combination, depending on the size of your room. Our Spotlight II Sofa features the same lines as the Willis room, with track arms that offer an elegant slope. Upholstered in a light mocha-colored fabric, you can swap out the teal, orange and yellow toss pillows for solid, muted tones. Or keep it as is for a punchier look.
A large square cocktail table helps anchor the seating group. While the Willis room uses a glass top, we love the urban vibe of our Huntington Collection Cocktail Table. Ample in size, its simple lines are contemporary and understated. The metal base sets off the wood top, which features a saddle finish.
On either side of one sofa, the Willis home features end tables with eye-catching circular legs. Our Rectangular End Table offers a similar look, and features a beveled glass top and brushed chrome metal ring base. The materials add to the room’s open feel, and the circular base adds intrigue.
The Willis apartment adds lighting to the room with a pair of simple lamps on the end tables. With similar round bases and sleek drum shades, our Smokey Table Lamp features a muted grey glass finish, adding to the room’s serene feel.
Finally, the Willis home has a long console along one wall to hold media components and a single accessory. Sleek and low, its unassuming design adds to the room’s simple design. While its shelving is open our Alder Console provides the same results. Featuring long, open cubes, use two along a wall to store your electronics as well as decorative accessories.
