Inside Dakota Johnson's Serene Hollywood Home | Open Door | Architectural Digest

hi ad I'm Dakota welcome to my house [Music] [Music] I moved here about five years ago and it was the second house I looked at and the first house I ever bought I love wood and I love light and Windows and greens so I just fell in love Ryan Murphy lived in this house first and he loved it so much too but his family got bigger so he moved out he lucky and this is the living room I hang out in here I read people kind of are always coming in and out of my house and everyone hangs out and this room obviously not only because it's a living room but because it's like one of the only places to sit the furniture is vintage and the couches were original and we recovered them in this amazing crushed mohair and this table came with the house I bought it with the house which was lucky it's pretty cool on the bottom it's bamboo the piano is vintage it's an antique Wurlitzer I play likes badly hi that Zeppelin he wants to show you is dinosaur this is not an antique this thing but I have a record collection that goes all the way and I just alphabetize them it's really exciting right now is ram paul mccartney it's a really great album and a really great album to listen to on vinyl and this amazing thing happens at certain times of day like really early in the morning 7 a.

light from the sun on the pool does this on the ceiling and I think is the coolest this is my office I read scripts in here I have meetings in here sometimes I actually don't really get any work done because I get distracted by everything that's in here my favorite thing about it I guess is these bookshelves that I built into the walls originally they were just these really beautiful like clean wood slabs and then they started to fall because I have a lot of books these ones were sent to me by Patti Smith I said I love your poetry so much I love your work and so she wrote me little notes in all of these books that she sent me this is a weird pile don't focus on this pile of books let's just put these ones and then different we'll just put them down here go to a cooler pile this is cool it's a wax mushroom this I was working with Chanel a long time ago and my alias was punk rock and I thought that was funny third silly Awards I don't even know I'm not an awards person barb is such a great character barb didn't come back in season two did she they totally forgot about barb in the upside-down that sucks she's still there Oh sex in the Constitution that's a really interesting one sex religion and law from America's origins oh Jesus what a weird girl this was a Polaroid of Hunter Thompson who was my dad's best friend and a very dear like Godfather figure to me and I love it so much even with his boobies this is an amazing photographer named Alice man and she photographs these marching band girls in South Africa and the energy is amazing and it makes me feel hopeful that is a photograph of my grandma at her house at Shambhala with one of her Tigers let's go in the dining room this table actually redesigned it and had it made I mean it's a smaller room and we didn't want to lose the rug and the light and we kind of wanted the table to disappear and these chairs look like little humans they're so gorgeous this I found on first dibs maybe I love first dibs so much I have some crystals yeah this one is cool because it has a dandelion inside it's not so cool people tend to give crystals as gifts in LA and that's great I love them there's a really big one over there in the corner that guy that crystal is crazy and it projects good vibes into you know your house and at people this is my little kitchen we painted it we painted it this green color I love green I lived in New York before I moved into this house and then before I moved to New York I lived in a house and I painted the kitchen green but I totally got the color and it was like the most atrocious color green it was so hardcore it looked insane like terrible but then I got it right on this one I think I love cooking I cook a lot and I bake a lot I love limes I love them they're great I love them so much and I like to present them like this in my house and how cool is this it's dying that plant now that I'm looking at it that's so sad there we go I never ever thought that I'd be like a dish person because I don't get it at all like the psychology of it I don't understand why anyone would collect loads of dishes or people who have China and like China cabinets I was always like what why I don't get it but this is so cool Here I am with loads of dishes look at these never have I used this what is that for oh it's pretty chaotic I mean can you stand it weird the coolest wouldn't you want to drink out of that I never do cuz they're too cool they're just for sitting in this cabinet my company is called tea time pictures so tea is a big deal for me but also caffeine is a big deal for me which I need some of it now that's upstairs where my bedroom is but we're not going up there this is outside I wanted you to see this table and chairs over here because this was made out of the wood from Winston Churchill's yacht I'm not lying and I think that's the coolest thing ever and look at how these chairs fit nobody can really sit in this table because the chairs wobble in these cracks and the slabs of pavement and people fall out of them and it sucks but isn't that so satisfying and amazing I planted this tree when I moved in and it was a little baby and I got some whoppers of lemons on that one but this one look they're like perfectly placed oranges on this tree can you believe that how beautifully they're placed it's like I did it for this very reason this was meant to be an herb garden and I never planted any herbs in it and I'm just looking at it now and it looks so crazy in here I didn't ever do anything in all this wild started growing in it like this guy what are you even weeds you know that on a lot of tea bags they have little fortunes on the back of the tea tab and I really take them very seriously and one that I get all the time is the difference between a flower and a weed is judgment so think about that I finally recently got outdoor furniture for a while it was looking pretty grim out here this is like an amazing little double chair situation that I love it's one piece I thought it would be really really pretty if there were some flowers and things out here because this house can tend to feel really masculine these chairs are not meant to be put outside they're very delicate and expensive but they look so good out here so who cares my cat chicken is buried here which is not funny but I don't know why I think it's funny to tell you that the pools heated a little so I can go in it all the time and also it doesn't really get cold here let's go up here these are some stairs that lead you to this place up here which is a hot tub which is so cold bamboo grows so crazy fast I don't know if you know that and my neighbors on that side are in a war with me about how high the bamboo and the driveway is growing which is insane because why would I want people to be able to see in my house I can't believe that I can even letting you guys in my house so they can just shove it this is this gorgeous just randomly placed flower arrangement and that's my battery room sneaky yeah let's go back downstairs now Zeppelin oh don't what are you gonna do go get it that one's probably lost forever [Music] thank you so much for coming ad I hope you like the tour in my house but I really would like for you to leave now so it you you.
