"When you buy a beautiful piece of art, you don't really own it," Reese Witherspoon tells Elle Décor in its September 2012 issue. "You're just the caretaker."

The beautiful piece of art the Academy Award winning actor is referring to is Libbey Ranch, the historic Wallace Neff-designed estate she has owned since early 2008 and which graces the cover of Elle Décor this month.

Situated on seven picturesque acres just outside the bucolic village of Ojai, California, the home is steeped in history, tradition and celebrity. One of the earliest works by architect-to-the-stars Wallace Neff (best known for Pickfair, the 42-room mansion of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks), Libbey Ranch was originally built in 1923 as stables for Edward Libbey, the glassware

Haute couture, cool "kicks" and beauty product packaging only begin to highlight the influence that Piet Mondrian’s paintings from the 1920s have on contemporary art, design and architecture today. As modern architects have already demonstrated, color does not need to act merely as an "accessory" but can serve as an integral part of the structure itself. That’s the philosophy behind this 3-story home on 6405 Dawn Creek #2 in Playa Vista.

Mondrian’s strict color palette of black, white, and the 3 primary colors, red, yellow and blue, play nicely within vertical and horizontal lines which, to him, embodied the two

Los Angeles is home to arguably the most diverse number of architectural styles, yet none seem to lift us up off our feet quite like a French Chateau. Perhaps it is the large, formal floor plans offering plenty of room to roam or that there is no shortage of windows and arched doorways to illuminate and enrich the interior.

Most of the estate’s architectural elements have been preserved from the 1923 original construction, which was recently renovated, and lived in, by hit songwriter and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi. The elements in this 5 bedroom, 6.5 bathroom home aim to fulfill a sense of openness

No one can challenge Jamaica’s Usain Bolt’s “fastest man in the world” title, but fastest convertible on the road? Meet the newest contender, the MP4-12C Spider Convertible, McLaren’s new retractable hard top sports car with a 616-horsepower, 3.8-liter V8 engine that sprints an impressive zero to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds. Its arrival brings the latest in vehicle dynamics technology, a clear challenge to the Ferrari 458 Spider already on the market. The 12C Spider (photos/video) delivers race car performance and handling on the track while still giving you the upmost comfort—which is a very good thing, since most of our maneuvers won’t be accompanied by a pit crew anytime soon.

The highly anticipated McLaren will have its first public outing in September

With Summer in full force, the Zillow Blog puts the spotlight on A-Lister Getaways. Topping the list of ultimate celebrity vacations spots?

The Agency's Jonathan Ruiz sums up the allure of Malibu to the A-list set well for Zillow: "Malibu has everything a celebrity could want. It’s got the privacy, the great dining, everything for an active lifestyle. But if you also want that very Zen, very chill, relaxing downtime, [Malibu] has it, too."

Ruiz's take on what makes Malibu great equally applies to his listing at 25342 Malibu Road. Equal
