While Def Leppard star Joe Elliott's musical taste may be somewhat heavy, his taste in property and interior design is, evidently, light, sleek and refined.

The rock 'n' roll frontman has snapped up a contemporary West Hollywood sixth floor apartment in an upscale, full-service block offering a gym, pool and 24-hour concierge, according to Dirt.

The light and bright pad boasts 1,700sq ft of space, which includes a stunning main open-plan living space with floor-to-ceiling windows boasting views over the downtown skyline.

Elliot's main home couldn't be more of a contrast in its setting – it is outside of Dublin in Ireland.

The main living space is open-plan, with views from the huge balcony off the living space over the downtown area. Floor to ceiling sliding doors and windows ensure the apartment is bright and welcoming.

Tasteful pale oak herringbone floors are seen throughout, while the custom wood kitchen cabinet ideas add warmth to the neutral space, and a marble countertops inject a luxe feel. Appliances are Miele, continuing the high-end feel.

The huge kitchen island has breakfast bar seating on the far side, creating a sociable feel to the open plan space.

Off the main room, the three bedrooms in the property are all modern and chic, with the master bedroom enjoying those sweeping city views. The decor is neutral – perhaps not what you would expect from a rock star, but we suspect it will change over time.

There's also plenty of inspiration for master bathroom ideas as the space boasts marble-clad walls, a his 'n' hers vanity unit and freestanding tub. The perfect pad for when the rocker is working or soaking up the sunshine Stateside.
