Tour Leonardo DeCaprio’s Malibu Home
Leonardo DiCaprio’s home is a beautiful coastal home that was built in 1927. With 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, it has been for sale for $23 million dollars. His home offers seaside views with a focus on the beach. You may be surprised at how modest this home is. Amazingly, this home offers peaceful elegance and ambiance in its simplicity. It’s easy to unwind in this uncluttered space and relax while reading a book or even entertain by taking advantage of this beautiful location.
We have few ideas on how you can own your own little slice of Leonard DiCaprio’s celebrity home.
Lets take a walk through Leonardo’s home! Have a look at this stunning dinning room and wide open area in the kitchen & living room area. Isn’t this space amazing for a home built in 1927? This space is very tasteful, with natural looking floors combined with a darker furniture and plain, very comfortable sofas that scream “please sit here and relax.” Your eyes follow the view…yes, this is beautiful!
Leonardo’s living room has a very large open floor plan with a lot of light and tons of space to entertain. The furniture creates a nice backdrop for a natural floor, dark kitchen cabinets, and accent pieces. Stainless steel appliances modernize this kitchen.

Simple furniture can add charm and fun to your re-created celebrity home in a short period of time. In DiCaprio’s home, there are plenty of neutrals, reminiscent of the sandy beaches just outside the door. Pops of yellow compliment the sunshine and keep with the light theme. If this look is too simple for you add blankets in nice aqua or blue color while wicker baskets will add texture and warmth. Just keep it simple!
The focus of Leonardo’s home is on the ocean. All the interior elements are in a harmony with main focus to draw your eye to the stunning view. You may think it’s plain, but there is a purpose in this plan. Re-create serenity of this space by using and blending together several neutral tones from white to brown to add elegance and harmony to your Leonard DiCaprio celebrity home.
You gotta love the color white while residing near the ocean. White makes smaller spaces feel larger and it also gives you the ability to accent with blues, mauve’s and peach tones with a few sea shells here and there. You don’t want to go overboard, as you can tell, this particular celebrity home is simple.
The easiest way to bring the ocean to your home is to surround yourself with the colors inspired by nature, in this case it will be seaside and the ocean. Whites, white-washed greens, all shades of blue, soft pinks… combined with the natural wood and plain furniture will add a glamorous feel to your room. We have a few color ideas for you- with a little bit of imagination you can do it!
If you don’t live near the ocean, invest in a wall hanging that offers a beautiful ocean view. Hang it on a wall that you will look at while laying in bed. One of the easiest ways to bring the sound of the ocean into your home, is to download the sounds of the waves and the ocean to your music player. A wall hanging and ocean sounds will make your bedroom feel like a million bucks. A great place to find an inspiration is Pinterest as well as Etsy.com, the best place to buy a real deal at the very affordable price.
So you see, you can have a home that looks like a million bucks and then some! If you are still thinking your home needs a little more celebrity appeal, why not invest in canned lighting in the ceiling of your shower?
