I like peaking into people’s houses! Especially if these houses belong to stylish people as Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth’s new summer home in the Hamptons, USA, was recently featured in House & Garden. The actress was very involved in the design of her serene new home. “I’ve become an encyclopedia of design for my friends,” she tells House & Garden.

Paltrow likes clean lines and cool colors; her aesthetic can be described as minimalist with a feminine twist. To establish this look, she worked with architectural designer Michael Minkoff.
