    In this Martyn Lawrence Bullard-designed Malibu home, the copper tub in the master bath is by Waterworks, and the hanging lanterns, teak facade, and carved marble panel are Indian.

    In the master bedroom of Courteney Cox's Malibu retreat, the custom-made head- and footboards are zinc, the selenite bedside tables are by Blackman Cruz, and the bedding is by Deborah Sharpe Linens; the two-tone Swag Leg chair is by George Nelson, and the rugs are from DDC.

    In this home in L.A.'s trendy Silver Lake neighborhood, the stainless-steel-and-leather Mies van der Rohe chair is topped with a kilim pillow by Commune. Johanknecht designed the cocktail table. The lamp is vintage, and the fireplace surround is painted in Benjamin Moore's Iron Mountain.

    In the master bedroom of this Beverly Hills home, a series of photographs by Alison Rossiter hangs above a custom-made bed upholstered in a suede by Holly Hunt, the bedding is by Deborah Sharpe Linens, and the 1950s armchairs are by Marco Zanuso; the vintage floor lamp is by Pierre Guariche, and the photograph above the fireplace is by Luke Smalley.

    In the conservatory of a Beverly Hills house decorated by Madeline Stuart, the sofa, upholstered in a Lee Jofa fabric, and the cocktail table are custom made, the vintage pine armchairs by Axel Einar Hjorth have cushions covered in a Chapas Textiles linen, and the oak stools are vintage. The ceiling skylights are milk glass; the walls are walnut; and the floors are Spanish terra-cotta tiles.

    The kitchen stools in this Santa Monica home are by BDDW, the pendant lights are by Paul Ferrante, and the ceiling fixtures are by Charles Edwards. The range is BlueStar, the refrigerator is Sub-Zero, and the custom-made cabinetry is painted in Farrow & Ball's Old White.

    In the living room of television producer Ellen Rakieten's Los Angeles apartment, which was designed by Anne Coyle, a Louis XV–style desk by Baker is paired with a side chair by Jonathan Adler. The 1940s chandelier is Italian, and the mirrored walls and concrete flooring are original to the apartment.

    In Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli's LA mansion, the dining room's chairs, upholstered in a Claremont mohair velvet, are custom made, as is the table by Blackman Cruz. The pendant lights are by David Wiseman, and the painting is by Nick Namarari.

    In the Art Barn at Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's Santa Monica ranch, the Danish leather armchairs, bluestone cocktail table, and 18th-century Spanish wood ring are all from Lucca Antiques, and a pair of antique armchairs are covered in Belgian linen.

    In the dining room of this LA apartment once owned by Lindsay Lohan, the 1890s pendant lights and chairs, which retain their original leather, are French.

    In the master bedroom of this Malibu home, a German-silver four-poster bed by John Robshaw Textiles is topped with a canopy embroidered by Ankasa. The lacquer bedside chests are Japanese, and the reading lamps are by Visual Comfort & Co.

    Custom-made iron chairs and a white-oak table sit on the loggia at this Bel Air home; the stone console is from Jean de Merry, the lanterns are by Charles Edwards, and the floor is tiled with limestone and terra-cotta.

    I like the white bedroom, the chairs look like from the Jetsons. The dining room looks like a surgical lab. That bathtub is in a great spot.

    We have different taste, the author and I. Maybe one of these would rank in the most beautiful, but only one. That kitchen with the hideous tile is atrocious. The wood paneled room looks like my doctors office. The carpet in that grey bedroom look like it came from the clearance rack at Home Goods (not hating Home Goods, but come on!).

    The only thing I'd consider beautiful is that copper tub. The last outdoor room is nice--I like the floors--but I'm sure very common and any Pottery Barn catalogue could come up with it.

    If it's in Elle Decor, chances are high I'm going to hate it. The last one is nice though.

    That back patio is fabulous!!! I like elements of a few others but most look too staged. It makes my eye twitch to even think about how much some of those rooms probably cost.

    I don't get it. The first and last are nice-- the rest are generic at best, sometimes downright ugly.
