Tyra Banks has listed her home in the prestigious Pacific Palisades postcode for $7.895 million. The former supermodel, who is aptly known as a real estate enthusiast, purchased the architectural property for $6.995 million in 2018 following success on America's Next Top Model, Dancing With the Stars, and America's Got Talent

The home, built-in 2014, 'has been 'smized' with a wow factor,' Tyra shares. But what makes it one of the world's best homes? Here, we take a tour of the stylish SoCal estate. 

Situated amongst a hillside enclave above the Caruso Village center (a retail haven with 40 exclusive restaurants and boutiques), Tyra Banks' home balances city, mountain, and coastal living. Though, while the surrounding exterior is something to behold, the interiors are equally noteworthy.

The property encompasses 6,160 square feet of living space – all of which fuel our modern decorating ideas through its open-plan layout and accompanying terrace. Its architectural qualities are exhibited through its pocket doors, high ceilings, wide-plank hardwood floors, and hand-painted wall designs throughout. 

The interiors celebrate minimalism through its fresh white living room ideas. Here, the space uses pockets of biophilia to interrupt the neutral palette and pay homage to the natural surroundings. The room also plays with textures that bring a sense of Scandinavia to Los Angeles.

A similar scheme is observed in the chef's kitchen area, where the white marble kitchen island and subway tiles frame the blues of the ocean. 

This leads to a large dining area that maintains the clean color palette whilst making a statement with a modernist chandelier above the hardwood table.

The five-bedroom home also features a host of less conventional features, including a private bar, gym, and media room.

Meanwhile, beyond the living spaces, the roof deck showcases a range of garden ideas with a Californian twist. Key features include an outdoor spa, a large fire pit, and an outdoor kitchen where guests can dine whilst enveloped by Pacific Palisades' natural assets.

Below the terrace, the estate includes a swimming pool and a collection of cacti that fill the space with further greenery.
