Alessandra Ambrosio’s Home in Southern California – With help from designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio crafts a haven in Santa Monica, California, that echoes the sunny delights of her native Brazil.
Ambrosio has been ranked as one of the highest-earning fashion models for years, and her name routinely turns up in popular media on lists of the world’s sexiest and most beautiful women. She has walked the runway and appeared in advertisements for myriad titans of couture, and she has parlayed that success into business ventures of her own, including her Ále by Alessandra fashion and lifestyle brand. In 2017, she announced her retirement from the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion spectacle after lighting up the catwalk for 17 years.
“I travel constantly for work, but when I’m not on the road, I just want to be at home with my kids,” Ambrosio says, describing her love affair with the Los Angeles–area dream house she shares with her ten-year-old daughter, Anja, and her six-year-old son, Noah. Her 1920s residence in Santa Monica is a quintessentially Angeleno Spanish Colonial Revival design. “I come from a small town in Brazil, and Santa Monica has a similar vibe. I had to be near the beach, someplace where you can feel and smell the ocean breeze. This is my paradise,” she explains.
Ambrosio has lived in L.A. for a decade. She spent five years searching for the perfect spot to put down roots for her family, and the next five years fine-tuning the property to make it completely her own. She met Martyn Lawrence Bullard, the effervescent celebrity AD100 designer, a year and a half ago, after admiring the Mediterranean-style villa Bullard had decorated for actress Ellen Pompeo (AD, November 2014). “Martyn brought a lot of color, texture, and life to the project. I love exotic places, and he knows how to conjure a fantasy that still feels playful and appropriate for kids. I didn’t want anything too stiff or serious,” she says. “I’d describe her style as Brazilian boho meets California rock ’n’ roll,” Bullard observes of his captivating client’s taste. “We wanted to do something that feels young and fresh, not just for the children but for Alessandra as well. She has an incredibly vivacious spirit.”
