Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s LA farmhouse is a dream come true for them.
In the latest cover story for Architectural Digest, the couple revealed that their modern farmhouse had been five years in the making. Their efforts certainly paid off, for their house looks exquisite.
“We wanted a home, not an estate,” the actress said about their property, which they call KuKu Farms. The That 70’s Show actor added that they wanted their house to look like an old barn, but also feel “modern and relevant”.
When it came to building their house, the couple knew what they were getting themselves into. “Building a house from the ground up is no small thing. This was either going to make us or break us,” Mila said.
Much like all of us, Mila and Ashton also started out the project by fleshing out their visions for their new home on Pinterest boards. Lucky for them, their tastes aligned and they were on the same page on most aspects.
“When we looked at each other’s boards, 90 percent of the images we selected were the same,” Ashton said.
Inside Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s farmhouse
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s LA house is a six-acre, hilltop property, designed by architect Howard Backen.
Their home includes a guesthouse/entertainment barn which features a massive crystal chandelier and a barbecue pavilion. “We thought it would be funny to have this incredibly opulent thing hanging in a barn. It kind of takes the piss out of the property,” Mila said about the unusual addition.
Moreover, their home is sustainable and is entirely powered by photovoltaics (solar energy). The couple made their home keeping their kids and their future in mind.
They also use the land for farming and planted a corn crop during the pandemic.
For the interiors of their house, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher enlisted the help of interior designer Vicky Charles of Charles & Co.
“Mila was pregnant with their first child when we began this journey. We spent months looking at materials and colors to find the right visual language. Our conversations were not just about the land and the architecture but also about the future of their family,” Charles recalled.
“Over time, the design moved away from a traditional farmhouse aesthetic to something more contemporary,” she added.
