Architectural Digest: Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher Give a Glimpse into Their Stunning Barn-Inspired Home
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis built their dream home so that it would fit their stylistic tastes. Recently, the couple opened the doors to their barn-inspired Los Angeles home.
Architecture Digest's June issue featured Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' Beverly Hills home on its cover. As Kutcher explained, they wanted the house to resemble a barn. He added:
"Something that had been here for decades, that was then converted into a house. But it also had to feel modern and relevant."
From the images featured in the issue, it appears the two accomplished their vision. The property's design is stunning. Reclaimed wood, board-formed concrete, and glass are used in the construction.
A freestanding barbecue pavilion and a guesthouse/entertainment barn are part of the estate's amenities. Using Pinterest boards, Kunis and Kutcher envisioned their own design.
In examining each other's boards, Kutcher said that 90% of the pictures they have chosen were similar, and most of the homes they pinned were designed by Howard Backen of Backen & Gillam Architects.
As a result, they sought out the expertise of Backen for the five-year project. Not only is the home beautiful, but it is also environmentally friendly. It is entirely powered by photovoltaics. See more pics of their house here.
Kunis previously commented on life on the farm during COVID-19 in an interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
It feels both luxurious and glam while still having a farmhouse vibe. For instance, rustic wood stands out against a chandelier in the entertainment barn. The meticulous details contribute to its cohesiveness.
According to Kutcher, for a space to feel peaceful, everything must be in order. In a chaotic world, the brain has difficulty functioning, he said, adding that people feel as though the world makes sense at home.
Kunis previously commented on life on the farm during COVID-19 in an interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" The acclaimed actress said Kutcher is from Iowa, and they live on a patch of dirt.
It was then that they looked at it and said they have time to plant some corn. The corn Kunis and Kutcher grew soon took over the land. Yet, they were unsure what to do with them, so they decided to give them away.
Kutcher and Kunis listed their main home in Coldwater Canyon in the Beverly Hills Post Office neighborhood for $13.995 million in May 2020. Hilton & Hyland's Justin Paul Huchel and Drew Fenton are the listing agents.
