Courteney’s Show Goes On
Courteney Cox Arquette never stops looking for great home buys. While shooting a recent Coca-Cola commercial–the one where she packs now ex-husband David Arquette’s glass with so much ice that she gets the lion’s share of the last can– she took fancy to the green leather Eames chair on the set and decided to buy it. Of course, the ultramodern home you see in the ad isn’t theirs. The paintings are ours, though, Cox Arquette points out, sitting in the master bathroom of their real home in the Hollywood Hills.

Architect Designs for Celebrities and Lebanon County Businesses
It was while walking the mission revival style campus of Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, Calif., as a freshman that architect Kip Kelly saw his calling.
That campus is so inspiring; it just made you feel like you were someplace important, Kelly says. I was taken by the effect architecture could have and the kind of influence it could make on people.
Kelly studied architecture in college, then went to work for four different firms before starting his own business, Nest Architecture, in 1995. Read more
