Celebrity Homes: Two Charming Renovations by Corbin Bernsen: A French Farmhouse and a 1940s Ranch

Charming renovated French farmhouse by Corbin Bernsen on Hello Lovely Studio

 

If you are as old as me, then you may have been a

fan of L.A. Law, and you fans will remember

Corbin Bernsen’s character, Arnie Becker–remember?

Corbin Bernsen was a carpenter before stardom,

and he and his wife, actress, Amanda Pays, have

been flipping houses for years.

 

The couple has four grown sons, including

twin boys the same age as my eldest…so

since Corbin pretended to be an attorney,

and my husband is a real life one, we’re

practically the same couple, right?

After all, my husband and I are also seasoned pros

(whatever!) at DIY whole house renovation, so I was

intrigued after learning how this couple approaches

their projects and ecstatic that they have

written a book!

I was surprised to learn the renovators rely on flea markets

and bargain hunting in all their projects–even

their own homes that you’ll see here.

Their style is very eclectic, spare, and undone.

 

Below you’ll first see their French farmhouse

in the South of France (images are from their book,

Open House), a home they intend to

hold on to forever as well as their 1940’s

ranch in Southern California.

 

Enjoy!

Wouldn’t this mahogany wing chair be

perfect in this French farmhouse?

I’m in love with the stair risers!

Did you see my post about stencils

for a handpainted tile look?

which was featured in Country Living magazine.

The artwork in the kitchen (below) was done

by the homeowner, Amanda Pays, and believe it

or not, the appliances are from Sears!

These are smart shoppers watching the budget!

Can’t wait to get my copy of their book
and be inspired by more properties.
