Inside Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s TriBeCa Home

If you’ve recently been perusing Curbed.com, you may have seen an item about some a blog post about a 2008 job done by hotter than hot interior design team Roman & Williams for “an actress, her musician husband, and their children.” Doesn’t take a genius to figure out that it’s none other than Coldplay’s Chris Martin and actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Although the original post has since been removed, thanks to the internetz the pictures remain!

And if there was any doubt that this home was in fact the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Martin, egle-eyed readers will recognize the kitchen as the “set” of Gwynie’s most recent photo shoot with Mario Testino for the August 2010 issue of Vogue to promote her new…cookbook. Oh yeah

Kitchen:

The decor is aggressively pastel-y and soft. Not sure if I would choose to live in this kind of space — but for the Martins it might be a nice change from the decor of some of their other, full-time homes in England.

Albert Hammond Jr. Is Like a Man from the Catskills

If you’ve been wondering where Albert Hammond Jr. has been spending his time away from his NYC pad that’s currently on the market, the New York Post has your answers.

Check out their new story highlighting Albert’s new custom-built three bedroom farmhouse situated in Eldred, NY. “This is exactly what I need to slow things down; to feed my creativity and my soul,” Albert tells the Post.

Albert Hammond Jr. Slept Here–and You Can Too!

If you ever tried imagining where Albert Hammond, Jr. rests his pretty little head at night, wonder no more. Today you have a chance to get a first-hand look at the private quarters of The Strokes guitarist. Albert’s two-bedroom East Village apartment has newly re-emerged on the real estate market, on sale for the low low asking price of $899,000.

The co-op pad at 141 East 3rd Street was originally listed for $1.199 million last August, but the buyer dropped out. The apartment was listed again at $999,000, but vanished from real estate sites by January. According to the NY Post, Albert bought the place in 2005 for $770,000.

With the lone exception of three strategically placed guitars in the foyer, living room, and bedroom as well as a stack of records in the living area, nothing in the photos of the apartment screams “rock musician living quarters.” In fact, the pictures reveal that the 1,200 square foot abode to be nearly obsessive compulsively clean. It’s partly due to some minor restaging by someone… looks as though Albert’s makeshift recording studio has appropriately been converted into a bedroom scene for the opening:
