Inside Chris Hemsworth’s Byron Bay Beach-side Home

When it comes to celebrities, there is only a rare handful that both you and your other half admire. Gushes about certain celebrities are often met with a huff-puff and an eye roll by our men, but there are some celebs that our other halves can actually handle. Chris Hemsworth is totally one of them! For men, Thor= total goals! And as for us ladies, whats not to, ahem, enjoy about Chris Hemsworth?

Today, I am taking a break from oogling the hunky Chris Hemsworth himself, and am instead drooling over his new beach side abode. Having recently relocated to the hipster surf town with his wife, Elsa Pataky, and their three children, from Malibu, Chris has wasted no time transforming his new $7 million home into a bohemian beach palace!

With a slightly rustic vibe, bohemian decor and those sea views, I’m literally about to pack my bags and head to Byron Bay! But before I get ahead of myself, let’s take a closer look behind the closed doors of this hotties home and see how we can recreate this look in our own home. After all, if we can’t have Chris Hemsworth, at least we can have his decor style!

This rustic decor looks like it could easily be in a modern Moroccan apartment, but that glimpse of aqua surf could only be in Australia! The high-shine woodwork is a beautiful contrast to the more undone elements of this semi-outdoor room. Color is added through the pops of vibrant crimson in the seating. Though red and stripes combined would normally equate to nautical, the rainbow of colors in this sofa and the satin-like texture gives it more of a bohemian vibe.

Get The Look

Dot your sofa with our vibrantly printed pillow covers for the perfect balance of nautical and bohemian.

Hows this for feng shui friendly? This naturally-lit living room contains so much Vitamin D, that you are practically outside! Adhering to the ancient practice of feng shui, the sofas are placed along the wall. Although the beige-y tone may seem a little dated, it’s brought truly into the modern bohemian trend with striped and floral cushions. The Moroccan inspired rug adheres to the shabby boho vibe perfectly, whilst the fresh bouquets of tropical blooms keep it looking fresh and polished.

This hand painted table runner would make a perfect addition to any table for a little rustic boho injection. Use it as a rug too for a double whammy!

This balcony is literally the size of our living room! Despite its largeness, the Hemsworth’s have kept it pretty minimal with a few chairs and some potted plants. I guess that with a view like that, you’d want to enjoy it!

Red is the perfect pal for your wooden balcony. Dot your outdoor chairs with some of our red cushions for a warming and exotic look.

If you have a tendency for all things matchy-matchy, it’s time to throw that habit out of the window! Known for being perfectly brash, colorful and clashing, the boho bedroom can combine as many prints and textures as your heart desires. On the plus side: you don’t have to look for ‘matching sets’, which is a wonder for your wallet!

For this muted fabric clash, begin by draping two sets of printed fabric off the ceiling, above your bed. The ‘hand embroidered tablecloth‘ and ‘ornamental embroidered tablecloth‘ are perfect prints to choose for this classy ceiling clash. Plus, the more sturdy fabric will ensure that your hippy ceiling will have just the right amount of drape.

For a continued clashing effect, invest in two contrasting bed covers. Begin by adorning your duvet with the stunning, warm-hued, ‘Ornamental embroidered set in saffron red.’ Next, choose a contrasting, cool-hued quilt cover, such as the ‘Hand Painted set in ocean blue‘ and use as a decorative bed spread. Plus: when Winter strikes at it’s coldest, you can snuggle up under both!

For this shabby-chic look, opt for cushion covers that have a worn-in and vintage look. The ‘Hand Painted Deluxe Accent Pillow Cover’ has a certain well-traveled, nomadic vibe to it. Opt for two or three different colors to adhere to the chic clashing theme of the room.

The Neutral Minimalist

If you’re a beginner to colorful decor, you may want to opt for this minimalist, bohemian bedroom. Sticking to a neutral palette of soft greys and creams, this look is all about embracing texture.

Choose a bed spread in a neutral tone, such as the ‘Hand Embroidered Set in Beige‘ to begin your neutral color theme. The subtle and sophisticated embroidered floral details on this bedding set ensures you are ticking all the boho boxes.

Now, it’s time to clash those textures! Sticking to a neutral palette, add layers of bed spreads and fabrics in faux-fur, wool and chunky knit. If you’re feeling glamorous, the ‘Solid Colour Silk Scarf in light grey‘ would make a subtle and chic bed runner and would add a glamorous silky touch to your decor.

What would a bohemian room be without a plethora of pillows? The cushions in this look are more about quantity than color, so opt for four or five cushions or pillows in neutral tones. The ‘Ornamental Embroidered Pillow Covers in snow white‘ would be a perfect choice for this subtle nod to Bohemia.
