Anyone who thought that the Los Angeles house of Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady would be a luxurious home is wrong. It is the complete opposite. The Brazilian Model likes simplicity and coziness. Therefore, that is reflected in the house décor.
The couple´s L. A story began six years ago. When the model and the quarterback started walking around the sunny shores of Southern California. Luckily, for the couple, they found a great lot of the Los Angeles house on one of those walks.
Immediately the couple knew that would be their future house lot. Gisele and Tom considered it essential to plant roots for their family. To transmit that, in the Los Angeles house décor, they worked with Richard Landry and Joan Behnke.
For the couple, is really important sustainability, as Gisele is a global ambassador for the United States Environment Program. Therefore, the couple wanted to include in their home décor recycle accessories. In addition, energy and water systems minimize the impact on the land. The couple installed two solar panels, one in the garden and the other on the roof, to meet all electricity needs.
In the couple’s priorities in the head, Landry designed a beautiful interpretation of old-world European architecture in the Los Angeles house. The home has six bedrooms and is nearly 14,000 square feet. It´s all in different limestone, all acid-washed for patina and texture with a traditional mansard roof. The driveway drives into a motor court and a stone bridge.

Through the home décor, the designers used a neutral pallet with pops of green and blue. Plus, the furniture is made with organic materials such as Belgian linen, old leather, silk, and velvet.
Adding to the sustainability of the home décor, the designer used reclaimed ceiling beams and floorboards. In addition, salvaged ceramic tile; brick; bluestone; antique wood doors, and marble fireplace surrounds. For the couple, these incorporate were necessary for their lifestyle.
Coming outside of the Los Angeles house, there is the hand-poured tile swimming pool. From the pool, the couple can see the beautiful landscape of the Pacific Ocean. The deck has recycled oak planks.
The Brazilian model’s favorite place in the house is the garden. Where she can find apples, peaches, plums, guava, and other fruits and vegetables. Plus, the couple has a chicken coop with busy hens providing eggs. It is important for them to let their kids know where the food comes from.
