The summer home of Hollywood beauty queen Gwyneth Paltrow and her rocker hubby Chris Martin in Long Island's happening East End, which they purchased for $5.4 million in 2006, is featured in this month's House & Garden, and the word breathtaking doesn't begin to describe it. Paltrow, who took the digs' design into her own hands, chose a cool palette and clean lines, creating a space that is both functional for her family of four and illustrative of their individual styles. She stuck to muted tones throughout and used patterns sparingly, very much like her killer wardrobe. Martin's rock-and-roll vibe and UK heritage is asserted with needlework art by Ann Carrington depicting the Crown Jewels, and a geometric-patterned wallpaper in the powder room and charcoal cabinets in the kitchen bring the noir rocker look to a more sophisticated level. Sadly, though, there is no yellow to be found. The couple's three year old daughter, Apple, even had a hand in the design; she chose the fabrics for her canopy bed. Paltrow also made the place kid-friendly with stepping stools throughout for Apple and her one-year old brother, Moses. It's understandable to be envious of this superstar family, but you don't have to be: the prices of their décor range from the remote Tord Boontje Blossom Chandelier ($22,500) to the very near CB2 appetizer plates ($2.50). Furthermore, if you ever find yourself in need of a design guide, ask Gwen, who said, "I've become an encyclopedia of design for my friends." Stay tuned for tips on how to get the Paltrow-Martin's look, and for an inside look at other images from their magnificent home,
