Cameron Diaz sells her Greenwich Village “jewel box”.
Actress Cameron Diaz has sold her Kelly Wearstler–designed condo in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.
After a mere 47 days on the market, the Greenwich Village apartment has gone into contract, unsurprisingly. Newlywed Diaz, bought a three-bedroom art-deco apartment in Chelsea for $9.52 million in 2013, where she’ll be moving in with her husband.
After paying $2.95 million for the two-bedroom, two-bathroom in 2008, she gut renovated the place, and is selling the resulting designer pad at $4.25 million. The 1,400-square-foot south-facing residence is what the actress describes as a “silk-lined jewellery box”, and features hues of burnished metals and lustrous minerals like onyx, rose gold, and copper.
West Coast-based designer Kelly Wearstler is renowned for her generous use of bright colours, which is made abundantly clear throughout the apartment. “The palette reflects Cameron herself – it’s innately sexy without being overly flashy,” Wearstler said when interviewed for the cover feature of Elle Décor. “I learn new things with every client, but Cameron taught me to be more sensitive to the hand of fabrics and textiles,” she added.
The living room stars a bright yellow swivel armchair by Milo Baughman that matches the Murano-glass chandelier and the fabric cushions on the sofa; a vintage marble cocktail table and leather stools with copper legs; and custom-designed rose-coloured wallpaper by De Gournay.
The kitchen is probably the most striking part of the house, the bold combination of unsealed brass countertops and vivid emerald-green cabinets contrast magnificently against the ebony-stained wooden floor.
The two bedrooms are pure couture from the inside out. The bed in the master bedroom is dressed in silk linens and a ruched skirt, and sits diagonally opposite from an off-white chair upholstered in lush mohair.The guest bedroom is centred on a custom-made brass four-poster bed and parchment-covered nightstands, complemented by art by Ricardo Prosperi.
