In the March issue of Architectural Digest – which features photos of the house by Scott Frances, following its 2½-year overhaul – the magazine notes that the master suite is no longer guy-friendly.
"[The house] originally had his-and-hers baths, but Aniston has turned the 'his' into a spa bath with a soaking tub," the magazine reports. Her master bedroom features a wool-and-silk shag carpet, and a platform bed with a TV at the foot.
And Aniston, 40, even describes the Zen-influenced home – whose palette was drawn from Brazilian cumaru (teak) – in an affectionate way. "It's like a big hug," she says in the issue, on sale Feb. 9.
Built on a hillside in 1970 with sweeping views of the city, Aniston calls the house "Ohana," a reference to the Hawaiian idea of extended family. She says the single-level home "vibrates with the love that created it." Among those who worked with Aniston was designer Stephen Shadley, who also has collaborated with Diane Keaton and Woody Allen.
The house features Aniston's fruitwood Sauter piano from the 1960s, a dining room that seats 24, and a 1920s Thai gong to summon diners to the long walnut table.
"I entertain for a living, and I entertain," she says. "The house has a rather glamorous, old-fashioned Hollywood quality. I can just imagine the Rat Pack stopping by; someone is playing the piano, and people are laughing in the next room."
