When we see Ginnifer Goodwin on the red carpet, the starlet is always polished and beautiful with a bit of a classic Hollywood appeal. So we weren't all that surprised to see her home, which is featured in ELLE's February 2013 issue, is equally sophisticated.
Though Goodwin plays Snow White on ABC’s "Once Upon A Time," her two-bedroom home is anything but typical of a princess. Instead of fluff and pink, she fills her house with flea markets finds and antiques from Melrose Trading Post Flea in California. And she creates a lived-in feeling with shelves of books, cozy throw pillows and area rugs throughout -- even in the kitchen.
Her color palette is also old-fashioned with dark green drapes, similar in color to those found in "Gone With The Wind,” hanging in the living room and dining area. Along with 150-year-old William Morris wallpaper in the entryway and the "salon" as Goodwin calls it, she has hung black and white portraits of her aunt Nan Halperin, a vaudeville performer.
The most surprising thing about the house is that Goodwin has made it a home. Forget the fact that most celebrities can't keep the same residence for more than two or three years, Goodwin, who bought the home from Busy Philipps in 2007, will take 24 hour flights just to sleep in her bed and hosts funny wig and Halloween parties every year. "I want, walking in, to feel like it's the kind of place where people stop by unannounced and it's hard to get them to leave," she told the magazine. And from what we can see, this is a place where we wouldn't mind styling for a while.
