Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee’s dream home is located in East Hampton. An expansive place that was a six-year endeavor.
According to Deborra-lee Furness, she always had an inspiration book, then “I’d always stick things in it, and everyone used to give me shit. And then when I finally did the house, all my girlfriends from Australia came back, and they go, ‘Oh, my God, the book has come to life.’ ”.
Her book had several designs and art moments, with influences from all over the world. Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee needed to find the right place and so they did. After that, they collaborate with the architect Viola Rouhani and interior designer Eleanor Donnelly.
Furness had a clear vision of what she wanted for their home, “I wanted to do a beach house that allowed for the way we wanted to live,” she says. “That’s why the design is unusual because people usually hide the kitchen. For us, cooking is the main event. I want to be a part of the action. My kids love to cook, so that’s in the middle of the living room.”.
In this room, we can find a walnut monolithic dining table, by Field & CO. Black chairs by Fair, and a sculptural bench by Caste.
The main bathroom with an outstanding view has a bath in Florim tiles that are almost like marble. Then the bath fittings by Studio Piet Boon and custom waterfall tub filler.
The main bedroom with a bed upholstered in white Belgian linen.
It is clear to see that the house of Hugh Jackman has art all around. This room is no exception, with the kitchen and living room side by side. The kitchen has the hand of Bulthaup with Caesarstone surfaces and Muuto counter stools.
Unique corner space with a printed wall by Duggal Visual Solutions.
Deborra-lee is an artist and this is her studio. It has one of her paintings and a lion sculpture for the African Community and Conservation Foundation, that she created with her son.
Once again, art stands out here. A banquette with cushion design by Zinc textile.
Hugh Jackman about his wife, “Deb is extraordinary. I was at almost every meeting over five years. I felt I would know what it would feel like to walk in for the first time. The home so far exceeded my expectations.”.
