Up, up and away: Kate Hudson in the main stairway of her Pacific Palisades residence. The house is actually the actress's childhood home, which Goldie Hawn had bought in 1979. (The family lived there for 12 years.) Hudson and husband Chris Robinson purchased it two years ago.
Hudson in the master bathroom. The actress met her decorators, Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch of Roman & Williams, through friends Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor, who had hired the former set designers after they worked on Zoolander.
The dining room, with an all-black Murano glass chandelier and a cupboard from a Portuguese convent.
Hudson told her decorators she wanted a house that was livable but with a hint of formality, "comfortable but with one uncomfortable piece in the room."
"Trust me. Please," Hudson says she told Robinson when they bought the house. "You will love this house when I'm done with it." Here, a view of the master bedroom.
