Gerard Butler in NY

I am love, love, LOVING Gerard Butler's loft in NY in the new Architectural Digest!! I've always considered myself more of a modern designer and I always do seem to be attracted to more modern and contemporary designs, but there is something so perfectly eclectic, warm, elegant and well, gorgeous about it that just makes me want to be in it! The rustic, raw feel of it brings to mind a bungalow or a chateau somewhere on an island....

See the first three photos here. The rest I scanned from the magazine because Architectural Digest is muy stingy.

And I just wanted to add a little comparison here, just to show what I'm really talking about, with the difference between something modern that I would usually go for and this gorgeous rustic loft. Below is Mr. Butler's kitchen and then the second photo is of Sting's kitchen in England that was in the very next article after Gerard Butler's.

I mean, good lord! I have nothing against Sting or the designer (Shelton, Mindel & Associates; oh, gee! How surprising! An architect designed the house. That explains it. ick)...ok, maybe I do have something against the designer, but I digress; my point is, who would ever want to cook anything in that stark white, no natural lighting, kitchen!? Well, not me.

All I gotta say is, Gerard Butler (and his designer) has great taste!

I'm with ya!!! I was scrolling down your post thinking "gee his place is so modern yet warm" and then I got to Sting's and realized why I felt the warmth from his non-traditional modern look. Sting's looks like a hospital. I also like Mr. Butler's too because it's perfectly masculine. Great post and great eye candy! PS I loved the "muy stingy" comment.
