Nicole Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban, a well-known and talented Country Singer/Artist, have a home in Tennessee. Did you know that? I never realized that until recently.
But where do they live when they are at home in Australia? Today we’re taking a little tour of Nicole and Keith’s wonderful home in Sutton Forest, Australia, located in the New South Wales precinct. Their home is a true historic treasure!
Vogue Magazine has a cute series where they videotape a celebrity as they ask him/her 73 questions in a rapid-fire succession. Have you seen one of their videos? I love watching them whenever a new one comes out because they normally take place in the home of the celebrity.
The other thing I really like about the Vogue interviews is how the celebrity being interviewed often comes across a little vulnerable, like you or I might sound if we were suddenly being asked a gazillion personal questions, one after the other.
I’m sure the celebrities are probably given some of the questions in advance because they come up with their answer very quickly. But occasionally a question seems to take them off guard so I don’t think they are given all the questions in advance. That’s just a guess, though
Nicole Kidman was interviewed and I couldn’t wait to watch it having just posted about the movie, Australia where she starred with Hugh Jackman. They ask Nicole about Hugh Jackman during the interview and her answer didn’t surprise me one bit. Apparently, Hugh Jackman is just as lovely in real life as he seems in his movies and in interviews.
When in Australia, Nicole Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban, live in this wonderful, historic 1878 Georgian home. It has an interesting history having been leased during the colonial period during the 1880’s to Lord Augustus Loftus, a governor of New South Wales.
The pictures I’m sharing are captures from the video so excuse the wonkiness of some of the pics. This beautiful, historic home has wide sandstone verandas, pressed metal ceilings, 10 marble fireplaces and a gorgeous carved cedar staircase. Such a treasure, a home like this!
Our first view of Nicole is as she is awaiting her interviewer on the steps of her home. I really loved this interview because in the past when I’ve seen Nicole Kidman being interviewed, she always came across as very reserved and a bit guarded. I’m sure I’d be exactly the same way if I had paparazzi chasing me down on a daily basis.
In the interview, Nicole is playful and very real. I felt like her answers to the 73 questions came from her heart.
The dress she is wearing throughout the video is gorgeous! I would love to have a copy of it, it’s just so feminine and so pretty. I love that Nicole takes her hat off as she enter’s her home.
There’s that beautiful, carved, cedar staircase!
During the Vogue 73 question interviews, we are almost always given a little tour of several of the rooms in the downstairs of the home of the celebrity being interviewed. After getting a glimpse of the entry, Nicole briefly shows us their pool room as she continues answering the rapid fire questions, one after the other. My only complaint about this interview is that the lights were off in several of the rooms so you don’t get a very good view of a few of the rooms.
We find out during the interview that Nicole is a bit of a pool shark! lol Would you have ever guessed that?
The library is definitely my favorite room in Nicole and Keith’s home.
Such a cozy, wonderful room! The leather sofa look so soft, like you melt right into it.
The living room is a dramatic contrast from the library and the pool room, much brighter.
This is the best view we get of the kitchen, wish we could have seen more.
The dining room is simple, light-filled and lovely.
In this room Nicole trips over a toy and it’s kind of startling, but she recovers beautifully. The mark of a good actress, never let ’em see you sweat! 🙂
I wonder what that is in the left hand corner of the dining room? I’m guess it’s a toy. Notice all the beautiful silver pieces along the mantel.
We get a brief glimpse of a patio area as Nicole takes us to her guest house and her hen house. My favorite part of this scene was seeing her two daughter’s toys, really makes it feel like a home where a family lives.
One of the most touching parts of the interview to me is when the interviewer asks Nicole how she’s feeling these days. She asks, “Honestly?” Then she goes on to give a very open answer saying, “Raw. I’ve been through a lot.” It left me wondering what she was talking about, what had happened recently to leave her feeling this way.
