Frieda Pinto’s dream house

“He has this friend rule,” actress Frieda Pinto says of interior designer Bobby Berk. “He never works with his good friends and said to us, ‘I love you too much to design your house. He didn’t want things to go wrong. But [my husband Cory Tran and I] were so convinced that he had the right taste for everything we envisioned for this house, which we had been looking for for so long – it has the best bones, the best energy and belonged to the nicest couple before us – that we decided to had to convince him to make an exception and break his rule.

Although the project took three times longer than Berk expected due to the pandemic, Pinto is thrilled with how it all turned out. On the phone, she enthusiastically describes her new home as a kind of “mini spa,” a place full of neatly curated little nooks and crannies where she feels able to relax and be herself. –Noor Brara

The mountain house of Whitney Cummings

It was the soothing, monumental landscape that ultimately prompted Whitney Cummings to buy her home just outside Los Angeles “I spent much of my childhood in Virginia and West Virginia, where medicine is the mountain,” recalls the comedian and actor, whose many talents include writing, directing, producing and podcasting. “I wasn’t anxious or stressed when I was there, and I always had perspective. I want to be in the middle of nowhere.

Cummings continued to encounter the work of AD100 designer Jake Arnold, who became more enthralled with her aesthetic with every space she saw. Dan Levy, of Schitt’s Creek fame, connected the two, and Cummings and Arnold immediately hit it off. Soon, Arnold was busy transforming what he describes as Cummings’ fake Tuscan villa into a Santa Fe monastery-inspired abode, with plenty of warmth and texture. –Alia Akkam
