10 of Our Summertime Favorites From Blake Lively’s Preserve Site

If you were just thinking about how you’d like more artisanal home goods and accessories in your drawers and closets, Blake Lively’s got news for you.

The actress and style maven launched her lifestyle website named Preserve today, and wrote a letter from the editor detailing what she aims to accomplish by combining an e-magazine, an e-commerce hub and a philanthropic endeavor to showcase unique wares handmade all over the country.

“Here at Preserve, there are people, stories, essays, videos and goods, which hopefully inspire your home, your style and your tongue,” Blake writes. “There’s expensive stuff. Inexpensive stuff. And everything in between. But their value is up to you. We may romanticize it, calling it treasure. What we’re really saying is, we see worth on every level.”

With a mix of items that can have a rustic, shabby-chic or modern edge depending on the way you look at them, we had to round up 10 of our must-have summertime picks:

Jillian Michaels’s Home Is Missing One Surprising Thing

Personal trainer extraordinaire and former The Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels just sold her Hollywood Hills home for $2.15 million, TMZ reports. And we’re wondering if it’s because it didn’t have enough space for the room that Jillian would most naturally have in her home: a gym!

While there’s no gym in her pad, there is a gorgeous kitchen with marble countertops and a shower we’d love to get pruny in.

Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom’s New Estate Is Nothing Short of Incredible

Newlyweds Andy Samberg and Joanna Newsom have a brand spankin’ new estate on their hands after purchasing Moorcrest, a famous home in Los Angeles where Charlie Chaplin once lived, for $6.25 million.

It’s not your average four-bedroom estate though, since the decor and architecture is dripping with Gothic, Moorish, Andalusian and Art Nouveau influences that will be mighty hard to renovate if they choose to do so.
