Inside Bryce Dallas Howard’s Charming New York Cottage | Open Door | Architectural Digest

  • Published on May 26, 2024
  • Today, Architectural Digest is welcomed by Bryce Dallas Howard to tour her charming cottage in New York. Growing up in Connecticut and falling in love with her husband at NYU, the East Coast is full of happy memories for the 'Argylle' star, so it made perfect sense as a retreat from the LA working life. The couple had their hearts stolen by a quaint 18th-century replica cottage. Inspired by legends Jane Austen and Wes Anderson, Howard enlisted the help of designer and family friend Claire Thomas to brighten the previously dark interiors, injecting each room with vibrant colors and fabrics. But what makes the home truly special are the familial touches, from her grandmother’s extensive depression glassware collection to the piano she learned to play as a child. “In the end it became so much less about aesthetics and more about the place we spend our lives…It’s beautiful to be in a space where I’m able to dream about a future.”

      She would be gorgeous in a movie where they actually celebrated femininity and domesticity. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a romantic comedy that’s also a modern classic aesthetic of how some of us really do live. Her house reminds me a lot of my house. And I definitely don’t have the same budget as her, but our houses have the same look.

    • @SRose-vp6ew
      @SRose-vp6ew 3 months ago +8

      Actually the movie mom‘s night out. It’s not a romantic comedy, it doesn’t quite have the aesthetic I’m talking about, but it’s a wholesome mom comedy that celebrates domestic femininity and family love. We need more healthy movies like that.
