Red Hot Decor Inspired By Taylor Swift

Nashville’s country-pop princess Taylor Swift has made her affinity for all things red crystal clear.

redTswiftThe Grammy Awards are less than two weeks away and Coldwell Banker is putting the final touches on the new 2013 commercial which will premiere during the show.  A former Grammy winner and one of this year’s performers has inspired us to create today’s post. It also just so happens to be “Wear Red Day” to support the fight against heart disease in women.

Nashville’s country-pop princess Taylor Swift has made her affinity for all things red crystal clear. She’s often seen wearing red lipstick and dresses, performs with a red microphone and she even entitled her recent album (up for a Grammy) “Red.” Below are 8 Red Hot homes that we think T Swift would fall in love with.

1. Villa Monticello in Irvine, CA – $6,500,000

You don’t have to be Taylor to fall in love the gorgeous red terra cotta colored walls of this stunning Villa. With panoramic views of the canyon and the golf course, Villa Monticello may well be the finest estate on the market in Shady Canyon. The front exterior highlights are courtyards, beautiful stonework, an elevated terraced garden, petite vineyard with citrus trees and 500 white roses flowering as hedges.

2. Extraordinary Paul Williams Traditional Estate in Beverly Hills, CA – $15,995,000

Miss Swift is used to the glitz and glamour of the red carpet and the future homeowner of this house will feel like a star when they enter this glamorous foyer that features a stunning spiral staircase accentuated by a 2-story glass window. This luxurious foyer establishes the focal point of the estate and links the public rooms. The grounds of this estate are truly majestic, meticulously landscaped with patios, lawns, secret gardens, enclosed cabana/outdoor dining room, pool, spa, and pool house.

3. 14 Bedroom Mansion with Diplomatic Overlay in Washington, DC – $4,999,995

The Edward Stotesbury Mansion in Dupont Circle.  Built by Architect Walter Paris in 1883, this red mansion of marble and stone envelops you in the grandeur of a bygone era. It is an excellent example of Richardson Romanesque architecture.

4. Spectacular Mountain Views in Paradise Valley, AZ – $6,873,000

Taylor is on tour for a good part of the year, and most likely doesn’t get to enjoy her kitchen too often, but we have a feeling she would love the red tray ceiling in this kitchen. This home is enveloped with amazing mountain views. Other fabulous amenities include a pool, putting course, tennis court, and an over-sized observation deck.

5. An Entertainer’s Paradise in Boca Raton, Fl – $6,500,000

This lush indoor movie and gaming theater is just one of the many jewels of this Boca Raton mansion. The future homeowners of this stunner will enjoy the outside just as much as the inside while hosting their guests by the infiniti pool with rock waterfall and jacuzzi, and built in BBQ, all while soaking up breathtaking panoramic lake views.
