* Patience is a virtue, as they say. Several years after purchasing her Manhattan apartment, actress Cameron Diaz sought out interior designer Kelly Wearstler after she noted that most of the tear sheets she compiled over the years to hone her design sensibilities came from interiors designed by Wearstler.  Wearstler known for her modern glamorous Hollywood design style expertly transformed, in collaboration with Diaz, a mostly white, nautical themed space into a home of warm accents, filled with “hues of burnished metals and lustrous minerals: malachite, onyx, rose gold, silver, and copper.”

The kitchen’s backsplash, counters, and sink fittings are unlacquered brass, the brass-trimmed cabinetry is lacquered in a custom color, and the range is by Viking; the wood floors were treated with an ebony stain and then cerused.

“The kitchen may be her favorite daylight lair, but at dusk it’s the living room, when the space is at its most seductive and the custom rose-petal–color wallpaper and mirrored walls throw off the kind of light that makes everyone look like a movie star. “It’s a bit like living in a silk-lined jewelry box,” Diaz adds.”
*  In the living room, the swivel armchair by the window is by Milo Baughman, and the Murano-glass chandelier, cocktail table, and stools are vintage; the armchair is upholstered in a Clarence House fabric, and the wallcovering by de Gournay and rug by Mansour Modern are custom designs.

* The linens in the master bedroom are by Frette, the coverlet is by Yves Delorme, and the silk wallcovering and gilded paper on the ceiling are by de Gournay; the 1950s chair is French, and the rug is by Mansour Modern.

* The master bath is sheathed in glass tiles by Ann Sacks, the parchment-covered vanity and mirrors are custom made, and the sink and fittings are by Waterworks.

In the guest bath, the walls and vanity top are pink onyx, the sink, by Bates and Bates, and fittings, by Waterworks, are brass, the vintage sconces are French, and the shower stall is custom made.
