Inside Celebrity Bedrooms

We’ve featured the homes of celebrities on our blog before because it is always interesting to see how ornate or simple the homes are of those who make millions by entertaining us. Once again we’ve managed to sneak an eye full of a very intimate part of a celebrity’s home, or anyone’s home for that matter. That’s right, we’ve found pictures of some of the top celebrity’s bedrooms and couldn’t be more excited. As lovers of all things design our heads are spinning wondering if they used bold or placid colors that correspond to their personalities, decorated themselves or hired one of our elite counterparts. The wait is over, take a peek inside celebrity bedrooms with us!
