Cher Architectural Digest Interview

Cher’s decorator custom designed the L-shaped sofa in the living room with extra-deep, oversize cushions, according to his client’s specifications: “I like sitting with my legs up under me,” she says.

Las Vegas star Cher is a master of reinvention. After all, who else can boast winning an Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, and three Golden Globes, rock a fishnet bodysuit past the age of 40 (her video for If I Could Turn Back Time was so risqu even MTV banned it!), and churn out one of the worlds best-selling dance singles ever, “Believe,” in her 50s? And now, at the age of 64, shes switching tracks again: I am a Buddhist, she declares in the July issue of Architectural Digest, which features her new, stunning, Zen-like Los Angeles apartment. But lest you think shes lost her edge, she adds, who should always be in after-school detention.

Her just-renovated digs reflect her search for serenity. To create a sense of airiness, she gutted the apartments 12 rooms in favor of an open floor plan: I always wanted an apartment that was one big bedroom, the star reveals, because thats really where I live, starting from the days when Sonny and I could only afford one bedroom.

The space also features calming, beige-centric hues (I prefer a neutral palette, Cher says, especially in my bedroom, because the colors are so easy to live with), many a goddess sculpture, and is devoid of any of the groovy, loud details you might have expected from the splashy performer.

That said, there are definitely some over-the-top aspects of her spread, which spans two floors with sweeping views of the city, clocks in at 4,000 square feet, and is equipped with lavish details like a 16th century opium bed. Theres also a massive stone-clad bathtub accessorized with a gauze curtain embellished with gold Indian symbols that surrounds the tub with the push of a button. Its so luxurious even her decorator, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, cant help but describe it as very Cleopatra.

It wasnt surprising when, snapping up two floors and 4,000 square feet in one of Los Angeles hottest buildings, Cher turned to friend and interior designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard to help her conjure up something ethnic, spicy and romanticalbeit in creams, ivories, whites and buttery beiges. Though I loved collecting Gothic and can spend hours drawing with every shade of Pantone pen, I prefer a neutral palette, especially in my bedrooms, because the colors are so easy to live with.”

I never get tired of coming into these beautiful, peaceful rooms, Cher says. As someone in the glare of the prying, omnipresent paparazzi, this sense of escape is especially paramount. There are no words to describe how intrusive they can be, she continues, which is why my homes, and now this among them, have become so very important. In a word, they are my sanctuaries.

    CHER, is awesome as usual. My ten year old Granddaughter Amanda would love to lay back on that settee on the luxuious balcony and pretend she is CHER. Amanda has loved Cher since she was three years old. Singing “Gypies, Tramps and “Flea’s”, that was her version. I have mailed letters to Cher at her homes and to Caesars Palace by Fed-x,right before we took Amanda to see CHER in Las Vegas. But never any response, all I needed was a Picture maybe with a autograph saying To Amanda My Greatest Admirer “CHER”. (That would make Amanda so so happy).Amanda sleeps in a Cher Concert tee-shirt everynight. In front of the Theater at Caesars, Amanda posed for pictures in front of all the glass cases that hold CHER’s beautiful gowns for all to admire. Amanda kept saying someday those will be mine (Where’s Bob Mackie when I need him, oh thats right on QVC.) I only wish that Cher could know how much Amanda loved the concert, she sstood and sang right along with Cher. We, also took her sister Brianna who was 15 at the time who had a great time too singing along. This Grandma here always tells everyone that in my “Next Life” I am coming back as CHER who also happens to be a Air Force Jet Pilot too. Its my life I can dream too just like Amanda…You go Cher we Older Good Looking Broads need to stick together…one of my favorite sayings thanks to (Mae West), If You Want Something Done Right , Get and Old Broad to do it….Hope to see you again soon, we are saving up to go back to Vegas. ( told Amanda and her sister Brianna that I could no longer help with there college tuitons. Gradma bought 5 Tickets front row balcony to see Cher so they were on there own. LOL Love you Cher, Grandma Diana but you can call me Princess Diana too I even have a credit card that says that……..hope we get to meet some day or Amanda could hear from you that would make that 10 year old girls day would think she died and went to heaven. That’s like calling CHER ann Angel we can pretend. bye

    I’m worried about her health!!!!! She’s an amazing woman. She does lots of thing at a time but she should think more about her health. I don’t want her to fall seriously ill!

    Luis- She did not specify why she canceled May 22nd. I went to see her Sunday the 23rd and she was fine. She was joking with us saying she turned 64 then everything just went to shit… She was fine tho. Sounded good, looked great. It was a fabulous show!

    It’s a nice looking place. Low ceilings are typical of the era. I am not sure why every house Cher has is a theme house. Egypt, Italy, Nepal, New Mexico etc. It’s like living in a movie set. The decor is so specific one would get tired of looking at it. No wonder she changes it on a constant basis. It’s nice but it won’t last. Soon the place will either be for sale or totally redone.
