We don’t know about you, but we’re ready for a vacation! Live vicariously through these celebs & designers like Elton John, Kelly Wearstler & John Mellencamp who kick back in gorgeous holiday homes.
Famed singer-songwriter Elton John’s 1960’s Beverly Hills pad, which he shares with partner David Furnish, is meant to be a relaxing West Coast base for the couple and their son. Decorated by Martyn Lawrence Bullard, the place epitomizes Elton & David’s love of California indoor-outdoor living. Clean & calming white seamlessly extends from the living room to the outdoor space while organic-shaped furniture, contemporary art and animal print patterns appeal to Elton’s “more-is-more” philosophy.

Interior designer Alessandra Branca’s Harbour Island Bahamas home, which she built with her husband Steve Uihlein, is a lovely combination of cheerful & laid back. The couple chose to use a traditional Bahamian floor plan, which lays out the bedrooms on the ground floor and the public areas on the second floor. The second level’s entire aesthetic is eclectic yet sophisticated with a neutral base & Branca’s signature vivid red as the accent color that unites all of the rooms.

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp’s vacation home in Daufauski Island in North Carolina (only available by boat), is a spot where he goes to be creative, so when he looked to designer Monique Gibson to redecorate the place, he wanted something that provided a cool state of mind. The designer brought in lots of natural texture to the breezy interior, especially on the screened porch, which features linen fabrics, a stucco fireplace, and distressed wood on the floors, walls, table & accessories.
We love how Mellencamp stenciled the lyrics of his song, ‘For the Children’ onto the wall of the living hall. “”I meant it as a blessing for the house,” he said. “Then my kids saw it and laughed at me.” (Architectural Digest).

True to her impeccable style, designer Kelly Wearstler’s Malibu beach home is super glam. The place wasn’t that way when she found it, but Wearstler did a huge renovation upon buying the spot that took almost two years to complete. The result is a place that lavishly mimics the beautiful oceanfront setting. Wave-patterned marble walls pay homage to the ocean’s undulating waves and the color palette of the entire home draws from sand, barnacles & driftwood. In an ultimate effort “to bring the outside in,” the living room’s floor-to-ceiling windows frame the spectacular Pacific horizon (Elle Decor).
